Chair - a catch posture wherein the body looks as though the player is sitting in a chair. Take a look at the photo of Jeff Soto under the definition for "Tip" and you'll see the chair posture. Actually, Jeff is doing an aerial chair because both his feet are off the ground.

Chandelierious - this is an aerial, horizontal version of the phlaud. It is normally done as a catch from a straight, speedflow type of throw. Jamco's story on Chandelierious: Chandelier was how they spelled my name in Colorado Springs paper in 1979. The photo was me doing the catch, but with the left hand...and I was hanging in air much like a chandelier from the ceiling. Rick Castiglia and I joked about Dr. Delirious and the name was born.

Cheek - the inside face of a disc's rim, just below Toejam's Recess.

Chest roll - see body roll

Clock - an abbreviation of the term clockwise. Spin direction is determined by looking down on the spinning disc from above.

Co-op - the act of exchanging the disc between two or more players. In the photo, Dave is passing a kneeling delay to Amy's flamingo pull. Co-ops are the heart of freestyle, in fact one of the judging categories is a numerical assessment of the number of co-ops done by a team during their routine. One of the issues in freestyle judging that needs to be addressed is the aspect of counting the number of times that a team passes the disc off one throw. Obviously a co-op that involves multiple exchanges off one throw should be rewarded more than a co-op that only has one or two exchanges. The problem with evaluating co-ops in this manner is the additional demand placed on the presentation judge, who already has a large workload of categories on his judging sheet.

Consecutivity - the ability and practice of doing a set of freestyle moves without intervening brushes, "the's" or flow breaks. For example, tipping the disc under alternating legs 5 or six times. Consecutivity is highly regarded among freestylers and is described in both the (WFDF) World Flying Disc Federation and (FPA) Freestyle Players Association rulebooks as an attribute of high difficulty and flow.

Contraflex - while closely related to the twistoflex, the contraflex is more difficult for two reasons: 1) Instead of rimming the disc under the leg from a palm down delay, the rim delay is done in the hypersupinated state, i.e. the wrist is twisted so that the palm faces up. 2) The behind the back pull is done as a skid instead of a "with the precession" pull. To do this move with counter: Delay the disc on your left hand, twist your wrist and maintain the delay. Swing the delay under your uplifted right leg and release it to your right hand behind the back. Pull the disc with your right from behind the back out to the right against the precession of the disc.

Corkscrew - a move created by Tristan Doshier in which the player does a behind the back sweep setup while bending at the waist and somersaulting on the ground by using his back and shoulders to absorb the impact. The sweep sets the spinning disc up into the air. After somersaulting, the player sweeps his leg up and over the disc as it settles to his hand for a delay.

Counter - an abbreviation of the term counterclockwise. Spin direction is determined by looking down on the spinning disc from above.

Crank - a delay movement that involves moving the delaying hand around in circle with the elbow providing the pivot. The name is obviously derived from the cranking motion that the arm undergoes while doing the move. Kevin Givens is the authority on the various permutations of this move, i.e. with the spin, against the spin, right hand, left hand, etc...

Crosstoss rings - a rings (upside rim shoot) under a cross body bad attitude. In a cross body bad attitude, your right hand is restricted by your left ankle instead of your right ankle. By hyperextending the posture, you will achieve more Mung on the rim shoot and make it return to you for more tricks.

Crowbrush (Scarecrow brush) - instead of catching the disc in the scarecrow posture, open your hand and apply a scarecrow brush. I'm not sure who pioneered this brush technique, but I ran across a VHS video tape of Joey Hudoklin doing a crowbrush at the 1981 FPA Worlds. Of course, this only affirms the notion that Joey is a higher form of freestyle being.

Cuff - normally a deflection or change in the flying disc's mung or hyzer angle that is effected by lightly touching the outside rim of the disc with the back of the hand or the wrist (hence the name cuff, like the cuff of a shirt sleeve). See the "parts of a flying disc" diagram for the deflection points.

Curtsy roll - a roll along the wrist and forearm while the arm is bent behind the back. From the mind of Dave Schiller, the name is derived from the arm positions used in a male curtsy.

Curtsy turnover - a one handed turnover that starts with a behind the back rim delay that sweeps out to the upside down delay. Vertical counter is done with the left hand behind the back, while vertical clock is done with the right hand behind the back.
