Posted:Ive learnt all the moves from the staff lessons on this site but it doesnt even show the moves i already know. Also does anyone know how i could change my direction without having to spin backwards because im cant spin smoothly when its going backwards. If you know what i mean.

I hope you realize how pissed I am.

Posted:My feeling is that if you have allready all the moves from all lessons on the staff section and if you can do everything Xaeda does on the video section here too, then , you are amazingly good !Have you seen Flash and Danger boy on the Circle of light video ???in this case, I think meeting twirlers is the solution for further inspiration. Sometimes even beginners can be a great source of inspiration. You could also start playing with a new toy , that could help...just my opinionShine oncassandra

Posted:I havent seen the video, i only started a couple of weeks ago. Im sure there must be some more tricks because the person i bought my staff from could do much more amazing tricks than i can do, such as a one handed cartwheel while keeping the staff spinning. Also the first move i learnt isnt there. Maybe i should make a website specifically for staffs. Do you know if there is already one . Also i find it quite difficult to go from normal spinning(?) to hellicopter when im spinning fast. Do you have any tips.

I hope you realize how pissed I am.

Posted:I find that spinning for a handful of unknown ppl. Then passing the staff to them and asking what they can think to do with it that they didn't see me alrdy do works amazing. This one dude came up with a sweet combo neather of us have been able to master it yet. Something about letting it roll down your arm catch in your elbows pop it up into a foot stall then kick up into a behind the back catch. It's taking alot of practice.------------------We are all in the cosmic movie. That means the day you die you watch your whole life repeating for eternity.

It's been a couple of weeks (almost) since you started this post.Have you noticed any increase in speed with your FIGURE-8's, this tends to happen in bursts the more you practice.Let us know what's happening in the world of new staffers...------------------Charles (INFERNO)newdolbel@hotmail.comhttp://juggling.co.nz

Posted:I think you should really work on going backwards, it adds a completely new aspect to your twirling and opens a whoel new range of possibilities, ie everything you already know one way.....u can learn the other!

Posted:Yeh its what ive been doing (spinning backwards). Its okay untill i hit myself. I dont really like spinning too fast anymore, i find it can look better and you can save the fast for the end to wow people. Ive been craving fire so badly but i started a new school a couple of weeks ago so my mum and dad dont want be to have any serious burns. Maybe this weekend. Oh by the way, do you know how to get from the spinning vertically to spinning in the normal way. I can do it with difficulty but it looks a bit stunted. Ive been looking for inspiration from zaeda's video (wow) and they are totally awsome. I like the dissapearing staff. I havent really had much time to staff spin recently, ive been bogged down by homework but every spare minute im banging my head, heh. Anyway i look forward to meeting up with some people.

I hope you realize how pissed I am.

Posted:As Cassandra says the best thing you can do to move forwards is to go meet other spinners. Watch a truly talented person do contact and you'll marvel at the things that can be done with a stick.

Another thing to look at is your routine; do you always do the same thing or do you vary it? I know one person who doesn't have a lot of moves, but the confidence and style in which she puts them together makes for a damn impressive show.


There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.
