This is how I taught DT and TR to play. I highly recommend you do not
spend too much time on the X-step. They need to know what it is, but tell them they'll learn that on a different demo day, and for now, let's get the throwing motion down. Trust me it works, so far the three people I have coached have benefited from this style of teaching.
Teach them the "sweeping the table" method on form and arm control. With smooth and precise form = distance and accuracy.
1. Putting - Drive for show putt fo dough
2. Approach - a really great second shot will save your ass if you have misfortune on your drive. I've seen many "big arm" players take 6's and 7's on holes that are easy 2's for them. They miss that big drive, wind gusts the disc into a tree etc... they have no clue how to get to that basket.
3. Drive - Show them BH and FH - they need both. Demo hyzer, anhyzer and show them the difference between the drivers.
As for the disc, light in the mid 160's and understable driver.
