Posted:morning.

i think i have this on video from last summer somewhere.

its not so bad. in fact if you can matrix happily then its pretty straightforward.

the andre double matrix is much more fun, cause the matrix part of it is too fast fo the pinwheel to work, and the fastest way of getting the staff accross isto do a half steve and pass, cause the matrixing staff never gets to the neck....

if i find the video i'll post it. otherwise i might gte round to a new one.....

Posted:Falmouth is definately the place to learn the matrix.............

Its where the sith master showed me wink

As for trying with bent staff, you are making life difficult for yourself, as the transition from one to the other really depends on the flow of a straight staff............... but im sure with a little persiverance you may get it smile

But hey look at it as an excuse to make a shiney new one ubbrollsmile
