For a few months now, I have been working on trying to create a new series of trick... They involve not using your hands. Your hands are thereby replaced by your mouth. I have gotten as far as doing a butterfly and I am working on being able to go over my head, but seeing as how I am using my mouth I have to arch my ack pretty far to get a good effect. The problem is that they keep hitting at the top of the move when I go over. Needless to say I don't use fire for this one yet. Any Ideas on how to fix it?

Sorry, can't help with this particular request, but I will say that doing staff with your mouth looks really stupid!

Its a great way to get a laugh out of the kids in the crowd...

This is hypo-thetical, I don't even want to attempt teeth-grip moves, but if you're doing a one-handed butterfly and can get the timing right, it's possible to release them simaltaenously and catch with both hands into a reverse butterfly. I've done it about three times...

Still in theory you could use it to get out the move in style....

That sounds like a true possibility, but at what point in the butterfly do I release the strings?

That's the tricky part...

Just a matter of trying until it works. But it's when they're both horizontal as there their momentum is carrying them vetically. This move is impossible unless you have some weight to you handles.

I've thought of putting the handles in my mouth to do new tricks. But because of extensive spinning my handles were too disgusting and never really advanced the idea too far. Though i can do a mean weave with both my feet

Ok, well I think I'm just goin' to have to try this one with my hands first, just to get the feel of it... Then maybe, I'll move on to my mouth. I think I can see the move in my head and that's usually where I figure everything out.
