Hi, I am Darren Parzow, Hall of Fame dart player and we are here teaching you how to play darts. Now we are talking about the proper technique you are going to need to play darts. I am here with Doug Watkins, another Hall of Fame dart player and we are going to teach you the proper technique to play. The first thing is going to be the stance. When you approach the line you are going to want to put your foot down however you are comfortable. Some people like to use their foot of in the angle like Doug has it, some point their toes forward directly at the board and some actually put their foot completely sideways.
You want to put most of your weight on that right foot, stand comfortably with your foot back or directly at next to the other one however you are comfortable and then you are going to put the dart in your hand comfortably. There is no right way or wrong way to throw a dart or hold a dart, so whatever is comfortable for you, it is very individualized. Now as you notice Doug has his elbow up, has the dart in front of him, so he has got a nice angle of the elbow, a lot of space here. Now as he goes to throw the dart, he usually brings the dart forward, back and then releases the dart. Some people just bring the dart back once and throw it and once again, very individualized.
You need to be comfortable, you are the one throwing the dart, one more time. There are times you may need to move side to side so you want to be comfortable if the dart is blocking the target that you are aiming you are going to need to move to get around that target. Just like so. So those are some of the proper techniques you are going to need to play darts. Next we are going to be teaching two of the dart games, 301 and 501.
