I've just mastered....
« on: August 21, 2009, 11:22:04 PM »
It'd be interesting to see how long it takes everyone to actually master a trick. 

I've found that it takes me a certain amount of time to learn a new difficult trick (ages and ages) and then much longer to make sure I can re-produce it nearly each time.

All too often I will try to show someone a new trick that I've just learned, only to have them watch me mess it up repeatedly.  With me claiming that "I just nailed that trick last night" or "You should've been looking 2 minutes ago!!!"  :-|

I reckon it'd be interesting to see how long it takes you from when you learn a new trick to when you think you've mastered it.

For some reason, the mini genocide has taken me about 6 months to master it (too long).

Also, 3 high is the bane of my existence!!!! Been practicing it seriously for about 5 years now (probably not practicing it smart enough). I'm pretty happy with where it's at now but reckon I've got about another 1-2 years before mastering it  :)

i can do minigens for 2 weeks now and i almost nail them every time.
but my whipcatch though takes me longer to fully understand.

and if u dont know a trick because u dont know HOW to do it.
it doesnt mean u cant do it.
some tricks take 5 minutes to master (not the really hard ones)
but some arm orbits for example

VERTAX is only rubbish if you suck at it, (most people do)(me too)

best way for me to know i've mastered a trick is either.

A) ability to perform it every time for an audience
B) i can do it without my glasses on because i have pretty bad eyes. (muscle memory + perfect yoyo positioning else its impossible)

Yeah - I find watching TV while diaboloing is great also cause you can look through the pattern instead of concentrating on the trick.

I've just mastered whip catches

Which ones?  there are HEAPS (I could think of about 20 different ones) :-D behind the back, under the legs, back-handed, around the body, from high, whip into duicide etc. etc.

A whip into duicide isn't a different type of whip, its a whip with another trick after it...

Benny?

I still haven't mastered vertax genocide after about 1 year :(  It's amazing how some tricks take AGES to learn and others not so long.

I still haven't mastered vertax gens after about 3 years (had a 1 year break though). I have to say, vertax isn't really my thing, but I like to learn gens.
Meh,
