Tricks / Whip Catch: From the side, or from the front?
« on: June 21, 2013, 12:32:07 PM »
Hi All,

One thing I've not quite been able to get my head around:

When doing a (basic) whip-catch do I face the side of the D, or the front?




or is it:

>-<   X

(where x= performer position, > & < are the 'cups', and '-' is the axle.

I've been trying to learn this from the Grant book, and the diagram is a little ambiguous.

Howdy All :)

Name: Ade
Location: West Midlands, United Kingdom
Age: 40's

1. How many years have you diaboloed for?
About three years. Just getting back into it after a ten year haitus

2. What or who got you started?
I very quickly progressed from Yo-Yo to diabolo back in the 90's

3. What do you like best about the diabolo or juggling in general?
Flow, creativity, meditation, exercise.

4. How many hours a day do you diabolo on average?
Thirty minutes. Still de-rusting old skills.

5. Do you ever perform with the diabolo?
Not yet. Maybe in five years or so.

6. Do you juggle other props? If so: balls, clubs, rings, cigar boxes, devil sticks... ?
Wee bit of cigar boxing.

7. What are your favourite diabolos, sticks, and string?
Diabolos have changed a lot since I last practiced (90's), so I'm still finding my way around the products. I'm currently using Mr Babache Jumbo Harlequin

8. Do you like working with 1, 2, or 3 diabolos the best?
One for the moment. I would like to progress to two once I've got the fundamentals down pat.

9. What is your favourite diabolo trick that you can do?
Combo: Left leg orbit -> right arm orbit -> magic knot -> right stick grind -> pirouette catch.

10. What is the most amazing diabolo trick you've ever seen done?
I kinda like the whole integrals thing. Vert. infinite suicides are pretty cool too.

11. What tricks are driving you nuts right now (what are you working on)?
Still not happy with my whipping!

12. What other diaboloists have inspired you?
Antoine: Antoine on Diablo
