Incorrect movements
Sometimes, when I throw my right arm, I'm right-handed, moves also horizontally and of course darts start to go everywhere in the board. How can i try to correct this?

I read that as you throw your right arm. I could insert many jokes here...

I found that when I stand more sideways to the board. Meaning my throwing side (right side) is facing the board I tend to throw more straight. I still have a bit of horizontal movement but that is because I suck.

Very cool video saber, now I need to pay attention to the way I hold my arm out.

Defo one of the more technically correct throwers is the BULL.

Notice also how he cocks his wrist back on the backswing, which makes it necessary for the wrist to break on the throw. His wrist break is so complete that his fingers end up pointed down. Pretty much impossible to do that without your hand and arm being straight.

Slightly off topic, Phil Taylor has an interesting mechanism for getting his arm straight. He starts by swinging his whole arm to the left, parks his elbow in the right spot, and then swings his forearm back to the right and puts the dart under his eye. Left eye, in his case.

One more thing -- when I first started one of the guys gave me a great tip: pay attention to what your non-throwing shoulder is doing. If it isn't absolutely still, your throwing arm will move sideways.

I also have a bit of a natural 'Mardel drift' and i would say the number one thing that works for me to correct it is proper focus on the target spot.

I find the wrist chickadee part the hardest, I think my throw would be better if I could do that but it feels weird.

Here's another feller that does it (along with his other contortions).

In videos, though, it's quite tiny. Almost imperceptible.

Yep I bend me wrist and use the finger wrist drive that George of flight school talks about in his book Darts Beginning to End. Used with follow through when I'm on is a thing of beauty lol.
