Contact without dance is like sex without wiggling.
A) it does feel as good
B) it does not look as good on film

Posted:Try holding the staff on the back of your hand as you do the fishtail motion so you get used to the movement, then hold it less and less and then only when you need to so it doesnt fall off.
Also try doing them slower than you would normally untill you get used to the action.

Posted:Psi if your having problems with elbow fishtails try waiting a little longer after the staff is on your elbow before trying to fishtail it back. kinda get it on your elbow, wait a second for it to lose a bit of momentum and then give it a little flick up and back with your elbow to give it back the momentum.
try counting 1 2 3 1 from when it leaves your hand to go onto your elbow, the second 1 is when you should be giving it the flick.
theres a bit of elbow fishtails in my naming moves video (link in the video section)
hope that helps smile

Posted:Hmm yes elbow fishtails .. i can almost get continous "elbow, half elbow fish tail, elbow half elbow fish tail, etc.. " while turning the body left,right,left,right... (the trick is on a lot of the baton spinning videos around here) .. find it a lot easier if i put at least on hand roll in between to kind of sort out the stick's momentum & position. The whole thing backwards is still miles away .. and continous fishtails on the elbow .. well i can get about 1.5 on a (very) good day .. *sigh*
