General / Re: Who Created And Where Were Diabolo's first Generated
« on: April 04, 2007, 02:21:53 PM »
Well, I have made a work at school. (I was help by Trash and Priam on it :p). Well, diabolo was created about 4000 years, in asia. It was use at religious endings, like "party" and sacrifice. It became later a toy, and it is when Napoleon was in France that it became really popular ( years ~ 1815). It was originally call "Kouen-gen", and it was made in bamboos, with little hole on it (that why it is call Diabolo, because it was doing a Hell noise (Diable = Satan)" to whisper.

If I am able to find my work, maybe I can sacn it and send it, but it is in french :)

Personally, about 1 year. I ve got 3 years of diabolos, so 1/3...I think it's good. It is frustation for myself...You know, you think you have it, but no  :-\

But now I ve got it, with many work, but I ve got it :).

I think it is question of time and will, yes, will :).

I understand, but Siteswap still a bit hard. Pass from a high to a low notation is quite dificult, more over if you need to add 0 or pirouette etc...
but of course we need to have a solid transcription or a good understanding.
Nice post Vincent ;).

Nice yeah.

just one thing : for me, an armstall is when the diabolo is block beside an arm, without knot. Because when you do an armstall as we can see in that video (the double armstall in fact), you have a knot on the right diabolo, isn't it ?

But, anyway, great one ;).

You can't say that ! A 3 diabolos shuffle still a great thing ! you should be proud of it  :D.

I like Zak's shuffle by the way.

I use a async shuffle for 2 and 3 diabolos.

But, as I can see, there is many many kind of async or sync shuffle...

Actually, I think this is easier to do tricks with a async shuffle (at 3 diabolos). Just check the baptiste's sun (on Diabology), for me, is more smooth than other...But it is just a personal thinking...

Try maybe to make a nicer move with your left hand. I use to have that problem too, it was because my left hand, at unwrap, was doing a too strong move. Unwrap smoothed with your right hand and be more smooth with your left hand.
It worked for me ;).

Tricks / Re: 3D double arm stall
« on: September 24, 2006, 08:00:16 PM »
well, my conception of 3d double armstall is that one :

3 diabolos shuffle, then, wrap to arm stall (left). Then, you have a 2 diabolos shuffle, so, transfert with an extern wrap (don't know the trasfert name) to put the second diabolo in armstall (right). Then, exit as you wish...

I dn't have video to show thah trick, because I think it for month and month, but I've only got 3 diabolos shuffle there is 1, can't show it, but it work, I'm sure of it....(maybe  :P)

WOW !!!!! :o

What a video !!! It's incredible what he can do with 3 diabolos....But I don't think that the right armstall exit with a kind of left wrap can be pass every time, it is like the big sun, it's very hot to do it, just by watching the diabolos position...
But it is insane  :o
