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....

warning: on-topicness approcahing...



will taught me two lovely multiplexes last night - cheers will hug



5 balls is feeling more solid again (but i need to lift some weights to get my runs longer again methinks) - i caught (5)645645(5) a whole bunch of times and (5)744744(5) a good few times too.

gonna practice these starting with me left hand and then i'll be ready to start trying to run them biggrin



for the first time ever i caught 66661 out of a cascade (to collect) which is alright.

and i have a new trick to learn: gatto's smile



and i tried 6 balls with me new balls last night andout of about 40 attempts (all at least 6 catches but still most runs ending in a drop - must stop doing that), i managed a run of 18 catches async ubbrollsmile

poor show?

how so?

I jest. frown



Good job on learning the siteswaps, and getting a decent run of 6!



I've just been practicing half-showers recently, to get my left hand throwing on the outside, higher than the more powerful right arm. I've tried 645 withthe 6 from my left, and I've only managed it once.

Posted:Last night I found out I could do the Factory/robot in both directions, and that one where it is the same ball being pushed across the top each time.



Which, once again, was nice..... smile

Have you tried alternating hands so that the weaker one throws over the top? It's bloody weird.



Yesterday - I managed a fair few catches of a 5b shower, I've never managed to flash to before. Also had three rounds of 6661.

lemonkey - doing runs of hi-lo 4b showers really sets you up for 5b showers.

but 6661...? should that be 66611 or 66661?

Posted:Cheers... so the 3 ball is thrown the other direction to the 1 and 2 balls? Oh wait, it's just straight up like it was, the "in what amounts to a normal cascade throw" bit is a bit confusing. Anyway, got that, feels a bit odd at the moment.

Apart from that Rubenstein's has stopped feeling hurried and jerky and is now much, much smoother. So much so that I seem to have temporarily forgotten how to go into Mills ubblol

When I learnt Burkes I forgot how to mess as well, what an awkward feeling!

That tutorial can be confusing, maybe observing the pattern will help... although, I still cannot do it yet. frown

Posted:Dunno, if I do it the way the tutorial says then it seems the 3rd (underhand) ball is the lead ball, not the second. Ho hum, it's all confusing, but I think I've got it. I'll have to ask a proper juggler though just to check wink

To get into it, I do a mills, then claw the first ball in the pattern.

Posted:i've been playing around with ways of going into (6x, 4) and (4x,6) recently. I can go into both patterns straight from cascade, with no 6's 7's or anything, just straight into pattern. (4x6) is easier - from 5 throw 64x2ish and then keep pattern going. on tuesday i got into 6x4 from 5 with a 6x followed by a hold on other hand and then into (6x4)

Learnt 7club 3 count last night, not as difficult as i imagined smile

Posted:Yesterday at Leeds con I learnt -

7 club 2 count.
6 club 4 count, and 2 count. Had a go at 3 count, twas hard.
... and my 4 club pattern seems to have become a lot stronger, with a consistant 20 throws each time! Maxing out at 40 though...

I also met Hexagonic, who is a good juggler. Saw him doing (6,4x)(4x,6) (I think!) with balls, which looked good.

I find it amazing that some people can progress so fast with juggling, it's taken me years to learn all the tricks I know.

What tricks are you learning? Maybe I can give you some advice.
