my trip to taipei taiwan 2007
« on: May 24, 2007, 06:19:56 AM »
just got back from taipei taiwan a few days ago where i competed in the 2nd PEH cup

ive got some videos and pics to share

made it to the finals and ended up getting 2nd in the prop competition which was the one i cared about (lost to Saito) and got 10th in the diabolo stage competition which was still quite good considering the number of people competing

it wasn't only a diabolo competition there was also juggling and acrobatics but most people only competed in the diabolo parts which were under 12 stage, under 12 teams, stage, teams, and prop

it was great to see so many people who were all quite good at diabolo also it was surprising that most of them either did not know how to juggle balls or clubs or could only do 3

i highly recommend this competition it was a great experience and i hope to attend again next year

if anyone has any questions about the competition or my trip i will be more than happy to answer them

I looks like you've had a nice trip :) Nice videos, you have an impressive vertax (are you using Yo-Ho's? It sounds like a Yo-Ho when you drop it)
You have a very interesting start, with fake whip and duicide.

Funny to hear the CanonRock in Ryos practice, I just used it in a diabolovideo.

Thanks Ben!
I was 1st in the prop competition and 4th in the diabolo stage competition.

This festival is a very big event and there were too many people who can do 3d shuffle or some other hard stuff.
I was very surprised that many Taiwanese elementary school students can do 3diabolos!

I also met a lot of Malaysian diabolists, and they are very good.
Their style is very fast ,(like Taiwanese) and especially good at 2d.
They have a lot of original tricks, and I think they're similar to Japanese style.

It looks like such a cool trip! Just out of interest how many people were there diaboloing? The videos were sweet, your performance was really nice and it seemed to take on a more Asian style than I'd seen from you before.

As always Saito's routine rocked!

Thanks for sharing the vids,

Wow, my Mandarin sucks...

You were "head & shoulders" above everyone there ;-)  But some great action nevertheless.  So many diabolos floating around.  A good run of 3 at the end too, and I also can't do left suns.

That was a great view of the other side of the world, thanks for sharing!

That was real nice Ben.

I really like the fact that diaboloists from across the world can meet up and compete / unite then reflect on the experience afterwards online. Fantastic.

I also respect the fact that you can take part in a comp, not sure if I could.
