And if there is a name for the thing I'm doing at the end (where i screw it up) can someone tell me? I copied it from a guy at juggling club last night (only completely backwards).

Posted:The move you do at the end is a high turn. Theres an animation for it in the HoP lessons section.

Very good for three weeks too. Keep it up!

Posted:Nope, just poi smile

I first went to juggling club on 25th June, and picked up poi there for about 1/2 hour. Got enamoured and ordered my own. They arrived start of July, and since then i've been to juggling club every week. It helps a lot, because it's 2.5 hours of focus, with people who can tell you what you're doing wrong biggrin

Is the last thing "chasing the sun" I'm not to hot on terms but I think that could be it. Of course it could also be shoulder reels. smile

Posted:i never really grasped the difference between chasing the sun and reels. Don't suppose it matters. Cool vid.
