YAY 4 ME!!!!!!

Just got back from a running camp for 4 days, that i did as part of my rock climbing training, and on the last night of it (tuesday) i lit up my brand-spanking-new-made-by-me double staffs and went absolutley skits!!!

I had been practising unlit for a good week or so, but i still managed to pull off:
-normal spinning (dont laugh it took a while for my left hand to come to life)
-triple beats on oposite sides
-right hand throws that stayedd in time with the beat (still working on the left, its not alive yet)
-double beats on the same side
-and parallel spinnering

also had a bit of fun doing some single staff on some 4 foot stilts!!
so all in all im quite proud of myself!!
piccies are on they're way, just gotta get lal's to burn em to a CD, then i'll post em up!!

Keep em bright and fast!!

Posted:I'm looking at buying some stilts off eBay at the mo......there are a lot of the "plasterers" type on there i.e. the ones with a flat plate on the bottom and double rods so that you can stand still. Seem perfect for doing poi/staff on as you can stand still if needed. I was looking into getting Sur-Stils Mag II stilts which can be seen here :

Posted:Nice!!
Those ones are pretty much what i was useing the other night, except they only had one pole to stand on insead of two, they'd probably be better for spinning.

I shall continue on my quest!! Thx!!
