VotW: 10 March 2008, Donald Grant

A little footage I took at the Scottish Juggling Convention of the one and only Donald Grant. Nifty little trick that you swear shouldn't work until you figure it out.

Nice one! Similar to Saito's ending trick in the vid filmed last year in the contest TPEC hosted.

Unfortunately that's pretty much the extent of my footage of Donald. Some headless footage of you though ;). I've got some Funty funkyness as well that he might want to put out.

Just ask the question in the thread rather than starting a new one next time ;).

It's probably best to start out practicing with your stick less than perfectly horizontal.

It's literally like the elevator - get the diab on your stick, wrap a front-wrap loop around it like you would an elevator, and pull taunt. The diab will climb the stick, pop over the tip, and end up in the open position. Do it slowly and you should figure it out in no time.
