How to Throw a Dart - Pretend that you are going to throw a dart. Notice that you have 3 ranges of motion. Your shoulder can travel up and down or left and right. The elbow allows you to move your hand forward and away from the dart board. Finally, your wrist moves up and down. A slight fidget in one of these areas can sway the trajectory of your throw.
