This space is for all those funksters busy improving their technique by learning new moves - made-up or traditional to shout about it.

Whether you've just landed a trick for the first time, or just polished something and got it really solid, with style. Tell us all about it!
Its great to hear about other manipulators succeeding with new things.

Here, a pat on the back in advance from me
::Drew enthusiastically pats your back::

Drew, are you doing anything new and innovative these days?
Shall we be expecting some shouting from you as well?


Give me until after the European.

See you there.

Naah, I'm working on classics.
Been polishing
Polishing and polishing
Been doing a lot of work on chest roll technique and half chest rolls, trying to get them slower smoother.
so at the end of the practice this morning. I got a 2 ball chest roll (4" stage balls) for the first time ever , but I think it was a bit of a fluke really.
There you go ryan thats one new trick this month... happy

I was playing around with a one fingertip stall at the trolley station earlier... one of the people nearby that had been watching the palm circles and short arm rolls noticed what I was setting up and Completely had a 'No way! He's going to pull this off! ::nudges friends nearby::' kind of expression.... kinda sucked to disappoint him... must get somewhat presentable by November.

when you trim your nails, trim it down the center first, so that yer nail will have 2 "points" on the outside, the with yer fingertip, you have a one finger tripod!!!

I was playing with a couple of strange iso's and holds which seem to blend nicely in to liquid rails...

And some "remote botting" I believe it's called - but it looks very silly and will probably only entertain messed-up hippies

today i just landed 10 headrolls in a row.
the most that i usually get in a row is like 3 or 4. 5 being my old record.
it hasn't seemed to improve for months. but i spent just over a week, 1hr everyday grindin it down....i think i'm alot closer to it. beware headrolls are addictive.

still putting the fine tuning on my isos and palm spinning technique..basics really.

Well, not such a success as Colin's, but yesterday I was able to make 20 armrolls out of 20 with each of my arms...I think I'm getting the grip of this

O.K., I just began with it about two weeks ago. I'm spending every minute I can afford. At the moment I'm able to to butterflies with both hands and something that looks slightly like a "palm-to-palm" and "back-to-back" pass.
I'll post it, when I get better, and I'll certainly ask in case of problems.
Have a good time

I was having lots of fun with fire staff and CJ last night

Palmspin the staff and the ball at the same time

Verrrry pretty and a good solution to night-time CJ'ing
