Posted:Yeah, been trying pressups while doing neck spins. Quite hard. Cos pressups are quite hard. and so on.

But in my writings have found two new things. Not very useful new things, but things that excite the part of my brain that likes catalogues of moves.

If you just do a throat wrap horizontally, with just the throat bit, the staff comes in, goes over your head and then onto the shoulder, around the throat other heand grabs it on other shoulder, up over head and away!

But this is like your arm putting it on the near side. With neck wraps you can start on the near shoulder or the other shoudler. So too, can you start throat wraps on the far shoulder! What bliss! It's kinda weirdly anti-spin too. Cool.

Other thing. Ninja Dave had a different neck lock to most of the other people I've ever seen do it. It's locked between the back of the neck and the shoulder, in line with your body. Hapyy days. So there are two forms or lock on the back of the neck, are there two forms of lock on the front of your body too? I'm inclined to think so, but it might take some throat and chin smashing fun to find out for sure.

Posted:mcp...thank you for that very informative site of yours. I saw it and abused my staff all day. It didn't want to do some of the moves, it said they wouldn't work. I said 'hush Staff....we will find a way.....'
And so I practised until I strained (In no specific order) my back, my ribs, my neck and the muscles at the top of my ass (Meaning I couldn't sit for too long). Keep up the good work..... thankx

I'm sorry for the waffle, it was a long day at work and that was a big bag of....well you know.... peace
