As a spinner turned juggler, I’ve been working to spin the club before (and after) every throw.

Music: Thriftworks – “Georgeeee” — with Thriftworks.

Lazy vs. Single with spins,
Lazy (with spin) vs Half to ‘Oh Shit’
423 )with spins making flowers)
Wheel plane to Wall plane juggling (with Spins)
And some flow.

And HELLA trails…
And some color distortion for fun.


Lots of Gunslinger Wrist Wraps because I just got the forward version!!! OMG!

144 Shape Matrix- Even-Petaled Flowers (Rework)

8.5x 11 135 Shape Matrix-01

This is a rework of a shape matrix of even-petaled flowers that shows the driving style of the left hand (columns) paired with a driving style of the right hand (rows).

We get Basic Shapes- Both hands performing the same driving style with the prop.

Hybrid Shapes- Each hand is performing a different driving style.

Monorythmic- Props are doing the same number of rotations (moving at the same speed).

Polyrhythmic props- Props are doing a different number of rotations (moving at a different speed).

Link to most of these driving styles shown piece-by-piece:


12 Even-Petaled Driving Styles (in wall plane):

1:1 Driving Styles:

Zero-petal Prospin: Extension and Isolation

2-petal Antispin: 2-petal Vertical Antispin and 2-petal Horizontal Antispin (also makes a “cateye” with a smaller hand path).

1:3 Driving Styles:

2-petal Prospin: 2-petal Horizontal Prospin and 2-petal Vertical Prospin

4-petal Antispin: 4-petal Diamond Antispin and 4-petal Box Antispin

1:5 Driving Styles:

4-petal Prospin: 4-petal Box Prospin and 4-petal Diamond Prospin

6-petal Antispin: 6-petal Vertical Antispin and 6-petal Horizontal Antispin

I want to give some ideas of a simple way to use a gunslinger wrist-wrap in flow.

Here’s a gunslinger wrist-wrap in one hand and a 2-beat (figure 8) in the other:
