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!
