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.

antisuicide to fan to suicide to vortex

a new 2d start, working on doing it as a ground start instead of having one running before

hey valium wasn't that combo in my vid  :wink:

I have flashed 3 diabolos high ... self started... it's not working well with the snow.

Also i got 411, 31313131, 330 several times and 31 is almost 9/10 times.   then it got too cold so i went in.

Toss juggling: i flashed 5 balls, 5 or 6 times.

I Finally got the actual INFINITE suicide a couple of days ago and then i figured out how to do the Genocide from it and landed it first time

Also Have learnt the not so ancient art of Ringbolo when u spin ur diabolo inside your Juggling ring as if it were a chatter-ring most of the chatter tricks are doable and it looks really weird
do it, do it ,do it, DO IT!

The last week has been really great for diabolo. I have been practicing 3 high non-stop for the last two weeks to try and get it solid at last. And i have. I can manage runs of 30-40 catches quite often and can do 441 most of the time. Yesterday I pulled 4515151 and then dropped them all with out finishing the siteswap, but it had been working quite well up to that point. I've managed to lower it into a shuffle a few times which is much harder than I thought it would be seeing as I can do 3 low already. I just scraped out a high-low-high yesterday but i didn't carry on very long after.

My 3 low double suns are looking better as well.

The coolest trick I recently learned was the mini-genocide. I spent an hour trying to figure it out and finally got it! I was so happy. It works a lot better with shorter string.
I also figured out how to do a 2D Leg Stall.
Right now I am trying to learn the reverse around the arm orbit.

I managed a 3 up piroutte on my second try ever yesterday. Which is incredible since i can barely do 2d pirouettes. I haven't managed to do it again yet though.

Finally cracked back-wrapping every pass. Working on 7th lord's 2d combo in his vid (the one with lots of transfers) and have almost cracked the last transfer but its giving me some jip for the time being.
