To throw a card long distances requires practice of a more direct and simple nature than the preceding accuracy drills. Distance throwing should proceed at the student's own rate and he should make sure he devotes at least one fifteen-minute time period to its mastery each day.
Starting indoors, you should throw cards with all your might until you can hit the farthest walls in your house. You then should move outside. Notice how much more difficult the scaling becomes. It is a good practice to match yourself against the elements when becoming a little too impressed with your own skill.
Careful attention must be given to the wind and to the pockets of air formed by the structure of the buildings where you practice. Change positions frequently until you can master the different airflow situations. Eventually you should be able to throw cards onto or over the roofs of small buildings. This is a sure sign of progress.
