Learning new tricks
« on: May 14, 2014, 06:27:31 pm »
Hello guys.
I have one simple question: What do you do when you want to learn new trick, how do you start to practise it ?
(The answer might not be that simple)

Find another diaboloist who can do a trick you want to learn, watch him do it, then make him watch you attempt it and get tips. no better way to learn a trick and the more diabolo buddys you have the better.

also finding diabolo videos and playing the footage in slow motion is a goof tip

also filming yourself doing the tick and then seeing what your doing is good.

also sacrificing 40 bulls to  mighty Oden really helped my three high.

hope that helps Graham

I agree with Mark, videoing yourself REALLY helps you improve because you can quickly correct where you're going wrong.

For me, I suggest practicing the trick often, however in small sessions. Don't get locked into doing it over and over and over because you're practicing failing too much.

Keep your mind alert and relaxed when you practice and make sure you are focusing your thoughts on the trick and not anything else.
