Posted:ok well i was watching this guy twirling the other day and he was doing this thing where he kept it twirling continuously in one hand all over the place (or so it seemed to me with my untrained beginner's eye and all). he was doing lots of movement with his shoulder as well as elbow and wrist, and twisting and turning all the time. anyways, it looked real good, and i really want to learn it cos i've been trying and my joints just don't bend how i want them to. SO...if anyway knows what i'm talking about and could give me a few pointers in the right direction. any other good moves would be much appreciated as well, i've learnt most of the moves on the site and am HUNGRY for more.
cheers very much

Posted:To start with, they kinda sound like wrist wraps (rolls). The rolls seem to flow fairly naturally from figure 8's, rotors, and similar moves. You kinda get a bit slack, and just start rolling the staff around the wrist. Then you take it from there, and start to get into contact staff.

If you're not confused, you're not thinking about things hard enough.

Posted:There was a thread drifting around about single handed staff moves that I started a while ago - I've had a quick look and couldn't find it, but I'm sure it's still around. I'll probably have a look for it again later, if I find it, I'll post a link

But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Posted:Wahoo, found it!

It was only on page 3 too, looks like we need more people contributing to the staff stuff.
anyway, it's here and it's got a good description of the double figure of 8 by Charles.
