Posted:really daft idea I managed to do: Prayer Vertical Steve... ubblol

and extra beat steve in prayer a couple times too...

and someting I might call the: Indecisive Steve... It starts off normally, down the first arm, quick spin on the shoulder, back UP the FIRST arm, (full steve style) back down it again, across the shoulders and down the second arm steve style, then back along the second arm full steve style, then quick spin on the shoulder (ducking the head) then back down the second arm. It just doesn't know if it's here or there... biggrin cool

Posted:I dunnoe, my beginning arm has a tendency to go wildly to the side (like the angel roll position) to get it to flow nice, and then my other arm has to really reach to keep with it. I didn't think about much more than that, before deciding it was a little silly and quite a lot stupid, and something to learn tomorrow... Still pretty sure I did it at least once thou...

Posted:Oooooo...

Yeah I just went outside and did it a few times. Keeping your hands together pulls your arm to the other side of the staff so the staff doesn't go between, your arm going to the other side of it, (and somewhat underneath.) It's the same movement as the horizontal one, your arms start horizontal, go down, then back up again. (But with more sideways action.) It's still a lot silly thou, even if very easy. (silly moves should be very very hard in my book.)

Er... so you can do a half steve where you lean back and let it pass over your chest instead of around your neck. I'm going to see if I can do a similar thing in the vertical plane tomorrow for a laugh. I think it will be very much like a frontside halo roll with arms rolls in and out, but it might feel CRAZY good, so I will give it a try.

Played last night with horizontal conveyor belts - these are real sweet especially for turning....... you can drop it onto the back of your neck for a few/ many as you like rotations then back out into the conveyor biggrin

Also playing with what i think is a horizontal jesus with an under/round the shoulder entry - it involves some rapid turning and your face gets slightly in the way but its fun smile

Posted:Some kind of turning one beat. On my leg smile

Was playing aound with steves and chest side spins too. Akward but cool. And it does some weird things. Like going back up the same arm. Works In forward Half steve and Frontside half steve.

So is a full, Full Steve, Down the arm, Spin on the back, Up the arm, down again, spin on the front and back up the first arm?

If its not, what is it?:)

yesterday i learnt a cool contact move, but i cant find the name of it now! its the one that goes around your arm, over the back of both hands, over the other arm, then you turn so it comes over your shoulders and you start again!

YAY for contact! biggrin
