Posted:This space is for all those funksters busy improving their technique by learning new moves - made-up or traditional.



Tell us all about it! We love hearing about our fellow poiers/staffies/misc. toyers succeeding with new things biggrin

It's just hard to keep up with it all sometimes, so if we keep it together you'll be certain to get a little feedback.



here a pat on the back in advance from me



::flash enthusiastically pats your back::

josh - if you can do wallplane cascade too you are just a couple of steps away from wallplane mills ubblove one of my dream tricks with clubs.


i have learnt nothing new but on the path to improving my 5b cascade i caught 6 out of a 7b flash.
i have a distinct feeling that may be the subject of my next post here... biggrin

Posted:Finally got the alternating TTN stall down pat.

Made up what I have so far dubbed "contact stalls" for horizontally stalling weaves and forward butterflys.

Double BTL butterfly carryovers with optional turns.

Cross over weave turns.

Direction alternating TTN.

Got started on learning counter weaves but its 5am and I must sleep before I overload... Much was learned today.


Let's turn those old bridges we crossed into ashes.
We'll blaze a new trail,
and torch the rough patches.

Posted:This week i plucked from the infinity of mathematical posibilities:

left foot to caspar (finally), shuv-its where neither end of the staff touches the ground at any time (cheers whoever it was who made me think of trying that (Dragon7)), and all manner of ankle pinches. And some interesting leg climbing contact.





Zeppelin rules!
