I just learnt one today... but I don't know wht the name of it is, so I'll attempt to describe and someone might be able to enlighten me.

Pass it behind back and then spin up over head (behind back) then as it comes back down you lift your leg and pass it round the front and under the leg and you're back to near where you started (spinning behind the back). It can be repeated over and over.

phew... I really should learn the proper names for these tricks!

hi mark



that sounds like a pin wheel your doing behind your back. they are sweet. smile



here's a link to the staff naming moves thread that might help you out a bit



[Old link]



have you tried turning around while the staff is behind you? it works when your spinning it behind your head and if you do it while spinning it behind your back... loads of fun



if you wanna try something really hard, when the staff is behind you and your spinning accross try puttin the center of the staff on the back of your neck between your shoulder blades and leaving go... you can take it back off with your other hand after it rolls accross...



its contact staff. im obsessed with it at the moment smile



have fun...

Contact is addictive!! I can not leave my staff down.

fun is the second word that comes to mind the first being tenderising (as in meat).

Contact without dance is like sex without wiggling.
A) it does feel as good
B) it does not look as good on film

hehe overtraining makes it harder, i find when i practise a move for a lot intensely then leave it for a few weeks when i come back to it its much better than when i was practising it

ben, what are you talking about, just starting to learn normal fishtails properly......you and your weirdness


hrmmm, dual fishtails........i now officially hate these evil evil evil things, strugz i reckon you'll have them better than 15 in a row, i hope you can do them forever by falmouth, i find when get something like fishtails nicely that after a few days i can do them forever, just a matter of ignoring the possibility of messing them up

Ok i had a gig the weekend, turned into a very sketchy night / day out but fun was had by all, ubbloco

When i got home the sun was beaming and i decided to spend a few hours in the garden with my stix still on a buzz from the night before,

Man i have never learnt so many new things in a short space of time, most of them contisted of:

Basic staff contact with turns, ie. halo rolls, snes but with the other staff going the opposite direction (non contact) i was playing for hours with these and realised how many differant entry and exit point there are, even when you chuck in throws while the other is contacting!

I would write lengthly descriptions but my brain hurts as ive just got up and am having to face work.............

For any one that wants to see, ill show you at falmouth, any one not going will have to "wait" for a vid smile
