Hi Pau,

Welcome to the forum and thank you for raising these questions!

I haven't been very active recently, but I remember wondering about this when I started diabolo about 12 years ago or so. Lena Kohn certainly was an inspiration to me at the time, partly because she was one of the few female 'role models' I could find in the diabolo world. I also have to add that it has never bothered me. I mean, I never felt excluded or held back or anything like that.

On a related note: isn't there an uneven male/female ratio in juggling in general? I've always thought there were more men than women. This isn't based on any facts though, so please correct me if I'm wrong.

- Around high school, when students choose their specialties, there is rather A LOT of boys in maths and scientific sections (at least in France) and since diabolo goes in the more "mathematical" category of art and activities, the same phenomenon seems to take place around it.
Diabolo has never seemed 'mathematical' to me to be honest. Siteswaps and juggling patterns are more mathematical I think. I find diabolo more intuitive and elegant than toss juggling, and therefore I thought it would appeal more to women. (Forgive me for stereotyping.) In my experience diabolo is a more physical discipline - I learn by seeing and 'feeling' tricks.

Anyway, I will be following this thread with interest to see what other questions come out of it. I am also highly interested in the historical paper your student is writing, Arjan! Please encourage him to share it. :)

I love this game! Such a good way to re-watch diabolo videos.

Double cheese and nuggets:

This one may be easy for some:

Hi guys, really sad to have missed it last year because of the enormous storm, so I am looking forward to making it this year! Also definitely up for a diabolo-beer-meetup on Thursday. See you all soon.  :)

The string grind is the best! The rest is mind blowing and I can barely understand how you're doing it. Amazing work. As Wis said: a masterpiece.

Nice routine! The 2D is excellent, I particularly like the crossed arms stuff a lot.

Amazing! Your style is unique and beautiful. I love the big movements. The live music made me laugh for some reason but it goes really well with the performance.

The enormous thunder storm prevented me from seeing most of it unfortunately. I was fixing my tent instead! Really sorry to have missed most of it, I thought the last couple of battles were great. Come to think of it I wish I had jammed with some more diaboloists at EJC but somehow I could never really find a 'hangout spot' for diabolo. Did a .ca meeting take place? I only arrived on Monday afternoon so may have missed it. (Sorry to go slightly off topic)

Please be very careful with it and see a doctor and/or physiotherapist if you continue to experience soreness or pain. I have had wrist and hand problems for quite a long time now and I know these things can take a long time to heal.

Great job! The editing is awesome. It also looks as if more and more people make the effort to film in good quality. As always it was a pleasure to watch. I must admit that Aaro's trick is the highlight for me.

I would love to see a refilm / tutorial of this trick and the variations you found! 1D creativity is the way to go ;)

This blows my mind!!!

Hi everyone,

Here's a little reminder that Camvention, the Cambridge Juggling Convention is happening in just over 2 weeks!

Have a look on the website for the programme. I will be teaching a diabolo workshop and Ronnie will be performing in the show.

It would be wonderful to have as many fellow diaboloists as possible there, so hopefully see you soon!

This is so good!!!! I never imagined something like this was possible. I'm impressed by the number of tricks you have developed with this new concept already. Go Alexis!!!
