Roll of the day – Throwing stick roll, forward to back

Throwing stick, start tucked forward, finish leaning aft

The Norsamik Nerfalallugu is probably the best norsaq roll to start with. Technically it is a norsaq or throwing stick roll that starts tucked forward and finishing leaning aft. Once you have become comfortable with lay-back rolls using a paddle you should be ready to try the norsaq rolls.
It would be easy to say just do the roll like you did with a paddle but now just use a norsaq… But that isn’t really what is going on in this roll. This roll is the start of learning a hand roll, an elbow roll and eventually a straight-jacket roll. It is all about learning the power of your spine, head, hips and knee.
