descriptionkverens: There are two places in which you can hold (three, really) a ball at the shoulder. The first, and hardest to get out of, is between the clavicle and the shoulder muscles. the second, which I prefer, is just below the clavicle, just above the pectoral. If you lean back, you can balance a ball there, and a slight shift will move it in any direction you want. The third, of course, is anywhere you want, if you catch the ball and hold it with your chin...
juggledo: A nice way to get out of this move is to use your chin to push the ball off of the back of your shoulder, to be caught behind your back in a blind catch.

This is TOUGH. and I have boney shoulders. I usually hold the ball with my chin. No, wait, I _always_ hold the ball with my chin when doing shoulder stalls. This is tough. Great job Kae. -|Joe|-

That is part of the learning process Joe. You find the sweet spot by trapping it first and then balancing it. Once you are confident with the trap, to balance, it is much easier to find, and stall, on the sweet spot directly. Bony shoulders or not, there is a way. You will need this skill to effectively pull off, The Ungodly Jose. On your bike Jimmy….*g* Ferret
