How many time to do 3 diabolos ?
« on: October 03, 2013, 09:23:45 PM »
Hey there ! I have been working on 3D since April (6 months !) and I barely can keep them on the string more than 4 or 5 catches...
So I was wondering how many time did you get to attend 3 diabolos ?
Can you guys tell me please ?

Thank you, Chloé  :-D

Hi Chloé.
I can variate from person to person. Personally I had it solid after 5 months, but as I said it depends.. Some people spend more than a year to learn it. My tip for you would be to film yourself and see where it is going wrong. If you need any further tips, feel free to send some clips of attempts and I'll guide you from there :-).

Kind regards

Thank you very much Kristian !
Actually I start to get the "good time" to put the 3rd diabolo into the suffle, and more I improve, more I spend time on it :-D

Took me about 3-4 months with practicing for about an hour every day before I had it solid :)

Chloe, it is different for everyone. For some it takes just months of solid work, but for some (even some of the most skilled diaboloists) it can take years. It took me about 6 months of somewhat solid practice. Persistant practice and dedication is key!

If you find that it's taking you a long time to learn, don't worry. It doesn't mean you're 'bad' or 'unskilled'. Like I mentioned, some of the big names in diabolo either took a long time or still can't nail it, and that's OK! I think I recall reading that Martijn has spent years on 3D. We all learn at different rates, as we're all unique.

My tip I give to those learning 3 is to try and think about what you're doing, rather than just 'doing it'. If something isn't working, try mix it up a little. If you get a really good run, think about what you did there and see if you can repeat it.

Good luck!

I`m practice 3D low now, its so hard.
I practice 3d low from high to low, thats easier for me but I can do 3 high, and some siteswaps, 441, 42 and others.
One thing, never give up and get your diabolo`s ;)

It took me about 8-9 months, and that was with very persistent practice.  Like, I had to do it an hour everyday.  You eventually hit a breaking point and the motion just "clicks" in your mind.  Great feeling when that happens!

i also had to put a lot of practise into 3 back in the days. but as people have already mentioned the key to 3 diabolos is to practise consiquently. if you don't have much time try to do at least 10 minutes a day if you are serious about learning it, it really helps. i also needed about a year of serious practise to get it...

Thanks Max and Sebi :)
I try to get 10 minutes of freetime per day, but I come back to school very late and we have a lot of homework to do so it's not possible every day...

it took me about a year i'd guess. but it's my own fault. i didn't practice consequently, i just tried it once a day, maybe even less. but at the ejc in munich it just started to work if someone threw the 3rd diabolo in. someone showed me the hover start, and since then it just seemed to work.
but you should really try to practice every day, it was a long way for me, and you should prevent yourself from suffering as i did ;)

i agree with all this to an extent but it is important to remember that sometimes a break can be beneficial. i was never able to practice everyday, probably close to every second day, but sometimes when you're having a bad diabolo day and nothing is working for you you need to step back and give it some time so you don't accidentally learn bad habits. the same thing happened for me with 4. about a week ago i was almost landing 53 suns but then all of a sudden i lost it and couldnt even open the hover into a shuffle and i havent touched diabolo for a couple of days because i want to give my body a rest so im fresh when i try it again. but of course everybody is different and learns in their own way. hope this helps.

To learn 3 diabolo high it took me about 2 months, and after 3 months I was able to do some siteswap tricks with 3 high.
3 diabolo low.... I've been working on it from about 2 years, and I'm not very able to it now, probably because lately I practice it only 2 h at week.

 :'( :'( :'( :'(

But as soon as I'll have a little time, I'm sure, I'll become a master...  :-D :-D :-D :-D

I feel your pain, I've been trying on and off for around 2 years (I think) with self starts and 2 person starts. Haven't really gotten anything solid but my best was about 9 otts (also do people still use that as a 'measurement'?). With school it can be hard putting time in but my school has circus as a class (performing arts school) so I can practice there, maybe try bringing your diabolo to school and practising before/after school and at recess/luch.

Hope that helps!  :-D

Actually I have already tried once or twice to bring my diabs at school, but I take the train to go there so it's really complicated - also my school doesn't have any circus class this year... But I try hard to keep some 15 minutes per day between homework and stuff... Some days ago I did 4 or 5 otts, that was just amazing  :-D
And yes Mediaboy, we still use the "ott method" to count records ;)
