Posted:Full Twister... i've only got it 3/4 way through so far but i can feel it coming, just need to practice more.

Start with a steve down to half matrix, body roll down to the legs and roll back into a windmill (the breakdance one) so the staff rolls between your legs and out the other side then stick your arse in the air so it rolls onto your back and up your shoulder into a steve exit.

The hardest bit seems to be twisting your body round and sticking your bum in the air fast enough to get the staff onto the back (and coming out gracefully without smacking your knee into the floor)

Posted:umm, no idea if any bits of these have proper names biggrin Both doubles moves:
1 - one stick spinning behind the back, behind the neck, back, neck...etc while the other is kept spinning in the air with whichever hand is free (either direction, both directions)
2 - Both sticks spinning towards you one goes under the other into the air then catch it on the other side where the other stick goes under it and into the air and so on...

...does any of that make any sense???


AAARRRGGGHHH!!! My giant stick broke!!! In two!!! My stick broke in two!!! ubbcrying

That however would show that my body knew the moves instead of my head!!! Often i'm not quite sure of which head is doing the thinking ;-)

Posted:I took a day off sick yeaterday and thought id have a spin to make me feel better. Great idea i had a really good spin and found loads of stuff:

Double steves, front side butterfly and paralel (kinda) steve and f/s steve. Been working on these for a while but they started coming together at last.

Pulled off a double angel roll wooooo biggrin you have to kinda jerk your arms at the sky just as the staffs are coming to your shoulder so they dont crash into each other.
Also double angel rolls where you spin them parallel and do an angel roll and pass the other staff in front of you as is goes over your back. This can also be done in butterfly and continuous while turning (like strugz's double pivot thing)

Been playing with but havnt got yet, atomic double contact, this can be lots of things but im trying to get an extra beat angel roll (v) with a steve (h) in butterfly. Needs lots of work but the concept is definatly there.

Oh yea and antispun steves (not sure if these are just horizontal antispun angel rolls yet but i dont really want to start that headache again)
