Posted:Yesterday I learned Angel Rolls,

I also was playing around and did a (1/2) conveyer belt (wow i cant spell that word, wtf) into a halo...

elbow, wrist, halo


oh oh oh, and starting an SNES but after the neck wrap, pivoting and it goes into a halo.

it was a productive day.

Posted:What I am working on right now:

Other way prayer steve.

Other way matrix.

Prayer Matrix.

Meast 'Matrix' / Frontside 'Hula'.

Origami. (throat wrap to a step between the elbows, with your arms folder [gettit] then back to neck spins.)

Cont Minimal Beat Steves.

The low caged part of the caged steve, going the other direction, stopping at the shoulder and back the other way, cont.

4,5,6: from the pivot, 1 - elbow elbow pass, pivot, 2 - jesus, pivot, 3 - 360 halo, pivot. All in a row from the pivot.

6,7,8: 4,5,6 all joined up without any pivots in it.

angel angel. Angel to angel roll turning inwards, so that there are no fishtail beats. the angel travels to your finishing arm, you turn across your body, bending your elbow and pinching the staff slightly and then releaseing it very quickly, letting it roll back the other way. Trying to get it cont, but can't join them up perfectly yet.

Anti-Turn Prayer Steve,

Turning and keeping in prayer while the staff goes up and down your arms, but not around your neck.

In prayer, putting the staff on the back of your neck.

learned from chronos: anti-spin angel. weird halo roll that's actually a neck wrap. and that I really want to be able to do luceros with lowered arms... biggrin

Anti-Turn Prayer Steve,





? interesing, i don't turn ith prayer rolls/steves.
I can go right shoulder to left with extra beat a the prayer then as it comes to left shoulder pop it back up arm to extra beat ... back to right shoulder, sometimes can do this a few times bouncing from shoulder to shoulder without it going round the back of the neck.

I shall have to try it with turns smile

Posted:Errr throat roll or frontside halo (whatever)

well double throat roll reverse into throat roll (and twice followed by a halo so technically jesus)

Posted:crap explanation:

make cross in front of you at 45's.

rotate the whole thing to that the top two wicks of each staff make a circle in the ceiling plane.... and another one at the bottom.... its a stick swap

you can do this over head and make the circles in wall plane front and back...

combine this with a one beat stick swap.. the one that reverses the direction of the staffs seamlesly and some some one beat over head butterfly action and your away on a trippy hack...

Posted:was having lot fun with continually changing planes during contact at the big green. Also I found lots of people were really impressed with jeuses which i've alway thought of as abit of a ugly move, so maybe I'll put abit of effort into getting them smooth.

Apart from that I managed to fall down a ditch and f up my ankle (again)grr. which means I'm not going to be able to play with my new footy stuff for ages.


Maybe I should change this too something abit nicer, humm no I still think your all Ccensoredt

Posted:ouch,
jesus's are great I can almost do them hands in pockets biggrin

A baton twirler in bournemouth was showing me and strugz some of her moves. she'd just won some silver medal, never seen a jesus before and thought it was great... she had this move called a monster roll, and was a bit put out when we told her it was ONLY half a matrix ubblol (round and under arm and across chest)

Posted:Heh.. yeah, those baton twirlers are insane.. watchin them do the matrix with that itty bitty stick.. sheesh. I've decided to watch baton for inspiration now.. just gotta get off my arse and start searchin the vids out.

As far as new moves, I finally found a flow with doubles, so lotsa stuffs. Prolly my favorites parrallel flowers (which don't feel clean at all, but apparently are), basic same direction weave, I can now get the same backspin arial that I do with poi (tryin to find a clean way to do butterfly kick still), various throws, and isolation play.. damn I'm lovin doubles smile.

Peace,

Posted:yay! finally playing with my stix again - has been a while - worked out a nice little anti-spun quarter steve-backspin-waist-leg-shin-foot thing which feels pretty good.

also slapping myself for only just working out matrix-steve transitions! its so easy i cannot for the life of me figure out why i didnt do this a year ago - so now playing with a whole bunch of variants.

also playing with some base-flyer doubles contact again - im pretty rusty though - but am getting back into it. Im trying to thing a bit more analytically about use of negative space which has helped work out some new transitions.

cheerio!

Posted:On the contact front:



-One-armed angel rolls and v.steves. Not the easy ones, the hard ones.



-Exiting the matrix (front & back) into leg work. Normally some sort of knee & ankle conveyor belt into a kick-up, or a straight legged roll.

But occasionally a chest to knee roll that spins on the knee then wants to roll back up onto my chest. This is actually really inspiring, makes me think a hand to foot to hand roll is possible....



-Neck to ankle roll (flat), then scorpion kick caught into arm roll.



-Neck/head throws into steves.



-Bunch of really simple contact, stalls, carries and transistions. Stuff I'd left behind in my arrogance, but actually adds loads of variety to my flow.



-V. Chest wraps.



-Triples matrix, two kinds. One like a doubles matrix but with two staffs held in a cross and passed. The other with the staffs being spun in each hand, horizontal fingerspins during shoulder propellers. You can switch between the two styles. Need to get three staffs I can contact as I can see some cool ways to change which staff is being contacted.



-Continuous turning angel rolls linked with throws.



-Contact passing between two people.



On the non-contact front Klodeo, Arthur Brown and myself got a bit silly and started playing around with three man staff patterns. Stay tuned for such delights as:-



-"The gay fairy's crown"



-"Greek translations"



-Claudio screaming "Too gay! Too gay!" whenever our nipples touch....
