Daniel Simu -

Not all juggling, but I wanted to share what I've been up to with you guys any way. I hope you enjoy this quick promo video :)

Nice 'feet hook' in the table routine - is that your own invention? I'm familiar with the move a la Swing Bros, but I've not seen it done by both together.

Funny that you mention the table routine, which is fairly common. The ladder routine on the contrary is completely original, as far as we are aware nobody has ever worked with that kind of structure!

I checked with my partner Berl, but he doesn't remember if he invented it (with his previous partner Thijs) or if he took it from somewhere. They were mostly self thought, so I'd say there is a good chance they made it up, but it isn't too hard so wouldn't more people have made it up too?

What can I say? New moves excite me more than new apparatus. ;) I'd love to see your ladder routine though.

Nice! The see-saw is an excellent addition to the genre.

Not sure if you're looking for feedback. I had a couple of thoughts - I'll drop them in an email.

Daniel Simu - - Parent

I'm still waiting for your email :p

I really enjoyed that. Perhaps not as much as some of the children, they were properly "into it".

Daniel Simu - - Parent

Thanks Dee! I wouldn't expect anyone watching the video to get really "into it", it's a thing best seen live. If the adults are not going to laugh about us, they will laugh about the children falling over the edge of the ring, making sure that everyone gets "it" in the end ;)

I enjoyed that a lot

Wow! .. when it became dangerous, I watched mouth open like a 5yo.

Thanks for all the responses guys, I hadn't expected so much encouragement on a juggling forum :p.

And yes, unlike many skills which I have performed, this one is as (or even more) dangerous as it looks, haha

Aside from admiring the high saults/jumps an' all, I particularly wondered if you don't clinch/clamp your hand between the two ladders when they clap together while you're holding onto one? Is there enough space in between or did you have to train to grip right in order to not pinch your hand?

*("saults/jumps") - STUNTS ! .. I wanted to say stunts!

Which moment do you mean? In the seesaw finale? There is no moment when our hands are at risk

7b_wizard - - Parent

Meant 3:33, where you walk all over the whole seesaw and land in handstand on it, and also 3:59, always when the seesawing ladder claps on the standing part.

.. also 4:03. And it's rather Berl, I reckon.
