I'm a woman. We don't say what we want, but we reserve the right to be pissed off if we don't get it. That's what makes us so fascinating and not just a LITTLE bit scary.

Posted:a friend of ours dances capoeira around us when we are spinning.

bit scary at times, when you turn around with a flaming staff and you see a flash of someone doing a cartwheel past your face. I'm learing the trick is not to stop and to trust that he knows where he is going and where i am going. Theres lovely communication in dancing like this.

i've been trying to get him to pick up fire too. so far he's much more into spinning around on his head and jumping five feet into the air though. Very impressive nonetheless.

would love to see some bluecat stylee capojuggling smile

Posted:this is totally unrelated..... but..... then again maybe not...

i was practising tai chi last nite with my double staff and it was indeed lovely

i can't really do doubles yet, only started a few days ago, but trying to apply tai chi moves & postures helped enormously with the flow & timing

Posted:actually the maculele involves knives as well when done properly, but since its a bit dangerous, sticks are more often used.. but what the hell, its all the same biggrin
