This is one of my favourite flourishes - it doesn't look all that great, but it feels fantastic

I love this move and it sets you up for a 'knife edge' arm roll to an inside elbow stall. An impressive move to another CJ'er, although the 'knife edge' is just another trick to a non- CJ'er *G*. Glad you posted that one up Kae, Nicely done!

Speaking of which, Kae, when are you going to post some of those GIFs I sent you? I got some more moves coming! BTW, I dig the feel of this move!

Sorry Shifty. Didn't Know

KS. the move to which you call the "Flytrap" is actully the open handed Prayer pass described in J.E book.
Author: KS
Yeah, on page 38, in quotation marks it says "flytrap". This is just such a kickin' pass that didn't have an animation yet.

Ah! Finally someone else that knows this move...this is by far my favorite flourish (well, not this exactly, but this move is part of it). What I do as my signature flourish is simply this "Pilf Regrif" followed into a three-finger "tripod" hold. When done correctly, you get a little circular motion and the ball sort of floats around your hand. Thanks for the vid Kae!

Also note that finger flourishes can be turned into very cool looking isolations. I like especially much to do a figure eight around my middle finger and thumb, but isolated. Thumb is little harder than middle finger.

doing this on the pinky side of your fist is much fun, too. it's a lot harder. i'm not quite proficient, but the potential is apparent.
