This article provides a comprehensive description on the ultimate frisbee concept of 'orbiting defense.' Orbiting defense is a defensive strategy used to keep the disc away from an offensive player, known as a cutter. It involves two defenders circling around the cutter in opposite directions, cutting off any routes to the disc and throwing off the timing of their cuts. This strategy requires the defenders to stay focused on the cutter and anticipate the direction of the cut. Further, the article provides specific guidelines on how to best execute orbiting defense, including where to focus attention and when to move.
