Perhaps the title of this thread is a little high-handed, but essentially the jugglers and poi-ers have really got the drop on us with the formal language they use to describe tricks. This was readily apparent to me at the BJC, where once the tricks got technical it was very difficult to name it without describing it.

Obviously we all know tic-toc, helicopter and propeller as three 'root' tricks, but what happens when you're doing an off-hand, overhand 180 curl and throwing the handstick over your head to catch it on the other side? It becomes a real mouthful.

If anyone is interested in posting tricks, perhaps with video links and working towards a formalised language then we can start discussing here. We deserve our own resource too!

If you're interested here's an old vid to, hopefully, prove my credentials -
