I am fairly new to CJ and have done this very simple trick. I was wondering cause I havn't seen it anywhere if it had a name or not.

P.S. sorry if this is put in the wrong spot.....


anyway, here is a vid of it.

In case it is hard to see, it goes from the cradle position onto the palm, but the ball never really leaves the tips of the back side of the fingers. When it is flipped to the palm, the same portion of the fingers continue to touch the same portion of the ball.

Also, I noticed that it could be rolled up from there into a hold on the top of a closed fist..... anyway, thanks for any help/answers I get.


Oh, and sorry about the music in the bg, I forgot to turn it down before taking that......

I reckon that's what rich was calling the 'betsy' for some strange reason, there's an almost isolated version around somewhere.

Go for a proper fist stall though, looks a lot nicer

All right, well if it is a 'betsy' I noticed that from that position, if you put both hands in that position w/ the ball on one side, when you extend your fingers you can do some sort of transfer to the other hand that reminds me of those bridges that can fold up so tall boats can go under.
