English term or phrase: armswing
Definition from BowlersParadise.com, Inc.:
The arc of the bowling arm and hand from the first move toward the line until the delivery of the ball over the line.

Example sentence(s):
  • The key to a free armswing is permitting the ball to control the entire arm through gravitational force into the backswing and down through the forward swing, until the ball reaches the flat plane of the downswing. CBS Interactive Inc.
  • Make sure your armswing and elbow are close to the side of your body during the armswing (esp. the forward swing) to have accuracy and leverage at release. fun2spare.2gobowl.com
  • By working at it, your armswing will get the job done just as well (or better) than anyone else. Very simply, keep your swing under your shoulder and not swinging away from your body. Minerva WebWorks LLC

Definition from ボウリング初歩のレッスン(:

Example sentence(s):
  • ボウリングのボールの投げ方で重要なのは、腕の振りだけではありません。そのときの足の動きも大切です。 - ボウリング情報館【ボウリン  
  • ボールを狙い通りに投げることは野球やソフトボールと同じことでやや難しいと思われます。ボウリングの場合はアプローチやレーン上に目印がついていますので投球動作そのものにブレが少なければかなり正確に投げることができます。そのためにはアプローチの歩き方(足の運び方)と腕の振り方が大切になります。 - 大阪市ボウリング協会 副会長
