Diabolo Accidents or Injuries
« on: May 07, 2012, 09:11:03 pm »
I remember seeing a thread like this but nobody had posted on it for a couple years. So, just post all of the things that have gone wrong while you or a friend were diaboloing.

To start it off:
Yesterday I broke a window while I was trying an S-Fan, and a few days before that I tried doing chinese whipping with two diabolos and whipped myself  in the face. It hurt alot.

Yes this was a topic, but it is good that you're starting up some olde rposts again!  :-D

I haven't had many injuries lately but last night doing 2 diabolo stuff as I went for a vortex wrap, since it was a fixed axle and I had alot of speed, it wrapped up super-fast and sent the unwrapped diabolo to my teeth  :'( haha.
Trust me though, juggling rings and clubs hurt just as much when they hit you.

sometimes my aluminium sticks hurt me in the balls... aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaXD but other times unfortunately, when the diabolo spins very fast it hurts me and it hurt seriously... concluding, I think that the diabolo will be the most powerful weapon of the third world war!

That reminds me of a curious one I had not long ago. I was doing a whip and the string went into my eye! Fortunately it was red for just a couple of days.

Since I got taibolos I had several red marks on my nose. I miss Circi in that moments.

Oh, I've forgot that, when I've learned mini genoicides the alu sticks hurt me in the hand and it hurt a lot, especially when it's cold...

I remember when I was learning around the leg, I didn't know what would happen, would I do it or would I not

Eventually I dd it yay!! But a few minuets late I couldn't walk that well I had cut all under my leg!!!
That taught me not to do around the leg inshorts!!!

Ha first time looking at d.ca for a while,  and just yesterday,  I popped the diabolo up to go into darkside and it went a little too high and hit my nose right on the end no blood but still can't rub my nose I well.

The horrible horrible pain from dropping a spinning sun on your barefoot toes, over and over again. Also the cuts on arms, legs and especially my face from body-combos gone wrong. Extreme's give some nasty bruised fingers too.

Today I was doing around the arm orbits when the string got caught and the diabolo smacked me in the face. I now have a nice little black eye.

That happens to me often  :'(
Once it hit me pretty hard and i had a cut curving around my eye and a black eye for about a week


Also, people often think I am depressed because I have cuts on my wrists almost all of the time from practicing around the arm combos, but nope, I just diabolo :D

Read this post earlier and thought how lucky I am never to hurt myself whilst with the diabolo, have rearranged my man bits on many occasions with poi's though. So back to the story, wifey bought me fire diabolos for being a good boy, wee bit of practice before lighting them. Well the rims are sharp and it now looks like I have been attacked by a cat, my arms are a mess.

Two weeks ago I was doing circus skills on a camp.

Done a minetti whip and and hit myself in the face during the sun. Friend took a photograph so I could see earlier, was expecting blue and saw red (cut my lower eyelid slightly). Didn't break my glasses though!

Well today is one of those days off that I rarely get and I don't know about you, but I'm still loving every minute I have with this. Only had this for about 3-4 weeks so I can kind of see why.WELL...I have been outside for the last 6 hrs playing around with magic knots. Discovered it to be an awesomely easier way (for me) to get into darkside followed by genocide...which I'm working on chaining a mini g in after that. I decided to play around with the full release of the magic knot, and got behind the back with catch pretty good. My buddy (Who is also my Poi mentor, I'm kind of his Diabolo mentor) decided to throw out the idea of throwing off the string from under the leg and catching it. Hell why not. Sounds like a good idea to me. After about 10 minutes of working on getting it to unwrap under the leg, not fully succeeding, I say to myself "Screw it, I'm just gonna go for it and not think about it". This mentality has worked for me before when working with Mini-Gs. Well Here I go. I start by throwing it in the air, catch and into a backside wrap. From here I accelerate with chinese acceleration, I believe it what it's called, to get up some speed. After I have a good amount of speed going, I fling the diabolo up and around the right stick and catch the string as it's coming back down the outside. As the diabolo is completing its circle and catching the underbelly of the string, I shift my arms to position to get ready to throw under the leg. The Diabolo catches perfectly, my arms are in the right spot, there is no wobble and its coming back around and flowing perfectly to go under the leg, and it does! To make it even better, the knot came undone just as I planned! Well, as I was watching it do it's thing, I got so into the fact that everything was going the way I was wanting it to, that I forgot to remove my face from the throwing point of the diabolo. So as the it comes off the knot, BAM! Straight into upper lip. Of course because of this...I didn't get to complete it :( Gonna give it a break for an hour or 2 and come back. lol. Hopefully I remember not to get to caught up in the fact that the trick is going the the way I want, and to focus on the next move.
