Posted:I just learned an awesome new move... but I don't know what it's called, I sorta did it accidentally first then tried and tried to duplicate it... lol
It's an overhead pop, caught one-handed into a fingerspin from back to side then throw from the side and catch (the catch took me a while... lol)
Has this sequence got a name?


Contact juggling was invented by dung beetles.

i've sort of learnt 3bt fishtails but they're still a bit dodgy, and i'm working on jesus's and turning halo roles



3bt fishtails?

Wha's that?
I didn't think fishtails were more than two beats... or you could say they infinite beats, i suppose... depends how long you can do them for...


Empty your mind. Be formless, Shapeless, like Water.
Put Water into a cup, it becomes the cup, put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, put water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot.
Water can flow, or it can Crash.

Posted:a normal fishtail is one beat, a fishtail with a thumb reach around is 2 beats, 3 beats can be achieved by lifting the arm up to get it to roll on the little finger side of the wrist, it makes alot more sense to see it though smile

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

Posted:depends on your beat system.

Steve was telling me they're actually 4 beats, because of the extra fishtail beat on the way back.

Anyway. Have I learned anything new? Not really, still trying to get continously vertically isolated bent arm matrixes. (possibly with anti-spin, if I can be bothered.)
