Back home from Olympics!

So, we are back from the Olympus! Everything was so great and professional, the organization over there is just outstanding, great food, great vibes!

As Masu told us after the first show (we did two during the day): “We made it!The entertainment was unbelievebly high! The only show where people came and stopped! The ONLY show that had the official Olympic photographer shooting! And the only one that made interactions with people! Even athletes came, watching amazed and tried some moves!! The organizers of the “entertainment area” had the best feedback with us! We won them!”

Eleonora could make lots of photos of the event and Matteo Ceresa shot with the videocamera the second show…awesome!
I’ll post the video soon and Eleonora will post the photos!

Thanks again to Masu for giving frisbee this great opportinuty!

Thanks to Matteo Ceresa for hosting all of us in Torino and shooting the video!

Thanks to Lui and Clay for organizing, brainstorming everything from the travel to the show!

And a big thanks to the athletes who took part to the event:

I’m going too against…

I think it’s about 6 month ago when I made my first against the spin, all day and night trying hard the simple inside crank, and finally pulling it out after a lot of practice!

Then not tired yet I wanted to achieve the next level: the outside crank with the other hand (left hand for me ‘cos I’m counter). After much time, many videos and a learned reverse delay with both hand I was pretty good to make against crank with both hands in a combo. I was pretty sure those againsts were enough for now, but after FPAW I came back to Trieste(my city)and started to try obsessed the skid, the birth, the juice and the amphibian.

Now I’m so excited about making againsts combination, with no pauses between them, I’m a bit worried, because before the againsts, I was practicing with many things (body spins,crazy catches,pulls,tips,holds), and now I can’t simply go for a body spin entire learning session…I try to start with other tricks, but I always finish the session learning just another against, another combo of them. I wish to dedicate not so much time to the againsts but it seems they are stronger than my will.

What should I do?

Should I return to the ‘natural’ way?

And also…I know there are some against combos as "alien birth", and some other…Can someone explain them to me, maybe if I can do them (or if I can find out they’re too difficult) I can stop to practice the againsts (for a while) and dedicate more time to the other great variety of tricks in freestyle!
