Stalls, Stall timing tips


Stall timing tips   Next Page  >

Stalling is really about geometry and timing!

The geometry part is noticing which way the Poi head is moving at different points around the circle - up, down, left, right, etc. For example, the head moves up or down at the SIDES of the circle. This is useful information!

The timing part is about moving the hand to line up with the Poi at the same moment that the Poi is passing any one particular point. So, just as it starts to swing down, if I get my hand over it quickly enough, I'll create a downward stall.

Anyway, that's why we have video - easier to understand with pictures!
