Posted:Well, seeing as we are starting to take over the

"Offical HOP "I just learnt a new move" thread", I thought we should contain this bit just to jugglerisng and the throwing and dropping of balls, clubs, rings and other miscellaneous juggling props.

Today I mothered learning 441.

I had a few throws of 531 but only 1 catch. I think my 5 is too high.

Note for the mods: I DEMAND on behalf of the jugglers on this site, as has been done with the aforementioned "Poi moves thread", that this one is made a sticky thread.

Otherwise its just favouritism really....

I havent been yet hexagonic; its between 2 and 10 at notts university, and im going at three.
Also, back on the topic of romeos revenge, is it meant to look like a chop to the right before throwing from the chop in claw, then chopping on the right again and doing a little flourishy thing similar to burkes barrage, then you repeat it on the other side? I've got an hour to find out! The thing that I listed above ive got solid, well over 100 catches. Not bad to say I learnt it yesterday. But is it even right!?

Edit: did the pattern I just desribed make sense to anyone?

EditEdit: does anyone know wher i can find a video for a shower explosions?


Romeo's for me is underarm throw upwards, overarm backtoss and an underarm throw to the middle and then an orbit back to the start.

Posted:I got a bit tired of practicing 4b mills so i went onto jugglewiki, found a fun pattern and learnt it, i think it was called taylors tangle, it has a really nice rhythmn, good for juggling to music.

Being thirteen does mean you have more time to juggle, but it also means you've got to go to school.

Posted:hexagonic,
Ive been juggling five for bout three months, so ive got till march to beat 1min 40. At the moment im getting bout ten more catches evry week (last week I was at 74... that was just a massive jump for me). Since I reached 30 cathces the pattern just clicked! btw. approximately how many catches do you think you did in that 1 min 40? it depends on how high you were throwin.

Posted:what do you think are the best warm ups before doin five balls. Normally, i start with two, doing 5, pass, 5 pass. Three: showers, snake, high cascade, flashes. Four: 55550, or 555pass555pass. 5: flashes.



Edit- is a 1 in siteswap a pass, and a 0 a mimed throw?

Posted:so ive gotta beat approximately 400 catches. 12 weeks= 120 more catches acording to my learning rate, equaling 210 catches after 6 months. looks like hexagonic has won.... but then again, he was a year older than me.



Edit: how many catches would you class as having the patetrn solid?

That's what I like about juggling, the sense of trumph you feel when you learn a new trick. I don't feel that for any other object manipulation business...

Anyway, regarding your question about warming up for five, my opinion is - all those siteswaps (5552, 55550, 5551 etc) are rubbish for helping with five.

My advice =

Don't practice long runs all the time;, practice your ability to start correctly, to keep the pattern nicely in the air, and then have a clean finish, for maybe 30/40/50 throws. I find that helps.

Another method -

Do 10 sets of flashs, 10 sets of 7 catches, 10 sets of 11 catches, 10 sets of 15 catches etc, builing up a base pattern with 5.

All those four ball siteswaps which "help" with 5 should be easier once you're good with five.

Posted:it's funny how sometimes people write "5" and sometimes people write "five" . . . . offtopic

so, umm, I still can't do 66661 with five. I really should practice doing 5 more often. On a brighter note: I think I might be able to do rubentsien's revenge now . . .
