    Good work on this Unit utahjazz7 :goodjob:
    Interesting that he grabs the Chakra on his Left side then turns to his Right before Throwing it. Seem that it would be more accurate if he continued turning to his Left before Throwing the Chakra from his Left Side... Not sure if there was any standard method of throwing a Chakra for those guys.
    ...In any case, Cool Unit :cool:

    The outer edge is a blade, so either the inner edge was gripped and thrown like a frisbee, or it was spun around a finger or thumb until up to speed and then flicked away.

    Then either the chakras were much lighter than they looked, or those guys had fingers of steel.

    I own two Sikh Chakras, and I can confirm they are much lighter than they look. I reckon they could be thrown very far, although I have never tried myself.
