Sry to bump an old thread but I think it's better to bump than to make a new one.

So I was wondering if the judging has changed because I was reading about the disputed vova/dietz club competition win.  I was wondering if the diabolo judging was that complicated. Like for instance:

- Do you get a 1/10 of a point deduction for foot movement?
- Are there specific categories under each category like orbits under 2 diabolo and suicides and that type of stuff?
- What is characterized as hard and how many points do you get?
- How many points do you not gain/lose if you don't do 3 high?
- How many more points do you recieve if you do like a sun above and under in excalibur and if you don't do any excalibur?

Thanks,
Josh

hmm, dificult...but i think neither you get any deductions for foot movement, nor there's such a complicated rating system - it's a "freestyle" competition...

All I know is that they pay nearly no attention to the diabolo judging at all... Norbi (or other WJF go-ers) could probably tell you more though.

well i was the only judge this year at wjf for diabolo and they basically said think of Williams routine (from ija) if he were to do it perfect that’s a 10 base the judging off that and count the number of drops/fumbles/mistakes

so yeah that was about it

At the WJF diabolo is an auxiliary prop and is only just considered a prop to have a competition, so the odds of putting in some different categories are against it especialy when only 5 or so people compete. This may change if the WJF goes worldwide and has competitions all over the world like Garfield wants it to.
