sparrow practice session

Can someone point me in the direction of how to do that move at around 2:45? I really need to figure it out.

 

Also, the manipulations around 4:00 were incredible.

 

Sparrow, this was very awesome, very inspirational. I loved it.

Wait...is that a one handed atomic weave starting at 2:20? o.O

 

haha, those are split-time supermans we called them "bizarro's" in Dallas =P

at 2:45 it's a hand-spiral (also called "flights")

*flights = birdies to some, but IMO anything bouncing in that short repetitive manner should constitute a "flight/birdie*

But what you do is catch the sticks like you're going to throw a catch-link (but strings aren't crossed) and you move your hands in the motion of a spiral, and once they meet at the center, let the sticks bounce back and forth like hand-wraps, takes a little practice but alot of fun (i also antispun it in the video)

 

as for the manipulation at 4:00-4:50

Those are bowtie-lockouts, also called "bushido" (Tx names lol)

and when we were living in kentucky during the hurricane Ike power outage from last year we spent nearly two weeks in a basement doing nothing but trying to innovate ourselves, and that's what we came up with =D

 

Really glad you guys are digging the video, Once i get the chance I'm gonna shoot a solo for '09, but I've been slacking for two months and haven't practiced as much as i should be =T

thanks guys =D

 

Honestly i should have new footage to post, Misty and I got to visit everyone back in Dallas, but because we've had no room nor place to practice since we moved away i was incredibly "out of shape" when we started filming =(

 

Maybe i will be able to put up something new once I'm done with the tutorials, I have been putting those off for too long now to let them get put on the back-burner again for a video that wouldn't be up to my personal standards;

 

so Onward, Tutorials Ho!
