Posted:have been in the staff section for ages

but figured out neck-spine-arss catch so thought i'd rave about it for a wheil

ubbloco rave rave rave ubbloco

anyhow the secret is to place the staff on the back of the neck really off centre so is almost pendulims back down the spine then jump into the catch and bring it through the leg quick b4 it hits the floor.

also have manged once or twice to put it into contact combs where you start by place the palce from behine the back onto shoulder- front neck-shoulder-180 -shoulder -180 -shoulder- 180 - neck - spine -arss catch biggrin

Ha ha! and they said i was mad!

Any advice on other tricks i should learn?
In all truth i should set about neatening my style and making it all look more beautiful.... and work on my duel catches......

Thought you guys might like to know! So exciting!

Posted:Ok this not really new but a variation none the less biggrin

Matrix (not andre version) : first half, same as normal, second half as it comes around under arm (usually goes acreoss front of neck here)

Variant is - keep your head down and it does a halo (on the horizontal plane) from here you can almost wink go back into another matrix biggrin

thats way too easy lava and doesnt hurt nearly enough.

im talking about twisting up your arms so you get extra beats into the weave. Like the way you do a five beat weave with poi. cept its a stick.

also four beat contact windmill

and other weird stuff im doing confusatron style behind my head but cant describe.
