« on: July 04, 2006, 01:01:14 AM »
Well, there's juggling "tae bo" or cardio workouts with Jason Garfield

but what would that be like with diabolo?   :roll: The 2 up 360's and fan 360s and other crazy ideas.

Post what you think would be a good workout.

Videos / the wjf on espn

Hey if any taped the WJF on TV today, could they post it only if it's legal?  Cause I don't have cable a.k.a. no espn...  So anyone that has it or watched it, describe some of the stuff to me k?  Like was there any diabolo?  How was Thomas' routine?  Stuff like that, wish I could've seen it...

Videos / WJF- William Wei-Liang Lin and co
« on: January 21, 2006, 01:16:41 PM »
I was wondering what William did to beat Ryo Yabe and I searched the internet and didn't find much.  All I heard and saw was he did a btb excalibur genocide (that was william right?) and cartwheel under a one up, and 3 diabolos.  I was wondering exactly what did he or the other competetors do like Tempei or Norbi?

Also will the TMFP show up in August at the wjf?  


Tricks / I just learnt to... (2006)
« on: January 02, 2006, 12:24:54 AM »
Edit by Sean, November 12 2009:
This is one of many "I just learnt to..." threads which was started by mrbpink back in 2005. Its intended purpose was as follows:

When you learn a new trick you want to show it and tell others that you have achieved something new. This is a thread where you can tell about your latest achievements, doesn't matter if its the string climb or a solid four diabolo shuffle you just learnt, tell us about it! And let others be inspired by what you do!
The original "I just learnt to..." thread wasn the most popular thread on the forum. Long forum threads induce an extra burden on the forum database server, so to keep things running smoothly around here I have started archiving these threads by year.

If you really feel like reading them all, there are about 1000 posts per year (2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005). There may also be more years of threads since this message was written. Have a look around. Otherwise, just post in the most recent version of this thread. It should be near the top of the Tricks section. It almost always is.


Original message follows:
string bounce mini genocide! 8) fan 180 once :D  and 3 diabolo is "coming along"

toss juggling:  I flashed 5, 3 times today!!! and I got 6 catches with 5 balls!

Videos / Diabolo movie for the heck of it
« on: December 30, 2005, 01:24:53 PM »
I have been learning lots of new tricks lately and I wanted to make a movie of it.  The music is good (at least i think so) so listen to it once.  Also any advice on my 3diabolo shuffle is greatly welcomed.

feedback would be great


Tricks / Antonin's "Integral" suicide
« on: November 26, 2005, 11:51:23 PM »
Since Eric's trick got it's own thread I thought that Antonin's Integral suicide (not sure if that's a good name for it...) needed a tutorial because it looks so frigging COOL!  

The trick im refering to is the one where he does an inverse trapzee but without releasing the diabolo.  Instead he lets go of a stick and catchs it behind his back then he brings it foward over his arm and then coolness happens into an infinite suicide.

Anyone wanna help me out with the coolness part?

It's seen in Of baguettes and Diabolos I think but I'm sure it's in this one, performed by Captain Buisson.  It's in Diabolicatessen.


General / Ryo Yabe 4 and 5 diabolos
« on: November 06, 2005, 09:24:12 PM »
I watched the 5 diabolo flash by ryo yabe but if he caught the later ones that he just walked away from would it have counted to the number that he caught?  Also what type of diabolo did the person throw to him because it looked tiny.

Also in the 4 diabolo watch carefully in the background for 3 people by the door who seem to be "dancing" :? yeah....  I have to much time on my hands...
that's the link to those videos...

Tricks / knot stealing
« on: October 27, 2005, 08:04:58 PM »
how do you do the knot steal in two loose in toloose that JiBe does in the beginning.  He does a sprinkler, then double sprinkler, exit to fan to the knot steal.  How do you do that?  the knot stealing part.

I have made a video of some of my newer tricks (mainly two diabolo) but I want to dedicate this video to and to Sean for making  This site has helped me a lot so yeah....

(also I noticed my shuffle is slightly asynch?  is that normally how it's suppose to be for 2 diabolo?  Will 3 asynch be easier or synch for 3 because I normally do asynch now?)


General / Best diabolists?
« on: September 06, 2005, 08:39:52 PM »
I was wondering for a while who do each of you consider the best diaboloists?  for what reason?  I want to seperate it into a few catageories.

1 diabolo combos:
1 diabolo in general:
Exacalibur (1 diabolo haven't seen anyone do it with two :D):
2 diabolo knots:
2 diabolo combos:
2 diabolo in general:
3 diabolo (low):
3 diabolo shuffle (how it looks synch)
"   "             "       (asynch):
3 high:
4 diabolo:

some of my opinions are

1 diabolo combos: Antonin
1 diabolo in general: Antonin/Eric
Exacalibur (1 diabolo haven't seen anyone do it with two :D): dunno
2 diabolo knots: Arjan (cause of the video for 10,000 posts)
2 diabolo combos: Makky
2 diabolo in general: prolly Makky
3 diabolo (low): hm... ryo yabe?
3 diabolo shuffle (how it looks synch): Trash
"   "             "       (asynch):baptiste
3 high: dunno
4 diabolo: Tony Frebourg

Give me some other insights onto these topics.  :D

Videos / Ghana Benefit Show
« on: July 22, 2005, 04:24:10 AM »
I have a video of juggling and diabolo parts of a show that I was part of (it was a local thing).  The whole show is martial arts, acrobatics, juggling, diabolo, poi, fabric, and breakdancing.  I took out the diabolo and juggling parts and put it into it's own thing and I wanna post the video but I don't know how.  Can anyone help me?  The videotaping is kinda bad though (my parents aren't professionals...) also it skips in certain parts but I think it's good, any help to post the video would be great.
