Hi there Infinit,

Just watched your latest vids and I gotta say you are going about your training the right way, Slow and Smooth to start..leads to Fast and Flowing to finish.

You are receiving great advice from Master E Graestar.

points to both.

Thank you Master Elwood. Youíre too kind but thereís something to say about you after Boeing my first video and giving new techniques to work on that fixed my figure eights within one video. I practiced for months and everything just looked sloppy until you came into the picture so much appreciation to your teachings my Master!

Hey there Tyeth. Thank you for your kind words as well. When I first started, I asked Master Elwood for a few tips and he mentioned started off slowly until I get my form right, speed will come later. This was months ago and even before my first video.  I have been focusing on form and keeping my speed slow because of that. Once Master Elwood and I started our training, it was easy for me to work certain issues I had since I started off with a good foundation laid out by Master Elwood.

Hi Infinit,

Another tip would be to follow the tip of your blade as it travels around the orbit then, when the blade passes behind you can focus on the pommel to maintain awareness of the position of the blade. (This is because the pommel is 180 degress opposite the blade, so the blade will move in mirror fashion to the pommel)

Keep up the great work.

(that reminds me I need to do a bit of practice too, I'm off to a local comic-con next week and need to be sharp Wink )

Hey there Tyeth, that's a great tip to follow in regards to the tip of the blade and the pommel.

Thanks for your kind words, since I've gotten great direction and a great teacher, I've gotten really serious with my spin and have been since addicted to it.

I'm excited for you on your upcoming con, you will take pictures, won't you?  I look forward to seeing what you'll do

Hi again Infinit,

Oh it won't be anything epic as it is a local con. I also don't have any Jedi threads to wear as I'm a bit stretched financially atm (looking after family etc).

I imagine most of the time I'll be available for the Padawans attending to try out their sabers against mine or borrowing mine for their photo opportunities!

I'll get what photos I can though.

Hey there Tyeth,

As long as you're attending the con for the sole purpose of having fun, even without a costume, it'll still be pretty cool. I didn't know that you look forward to lending your saber to a padawan or have some fun saber sparring with.  Kudos to you, padawans do remember kind acts from strangers like that.  Point incoming for looking out for our future Jedi and Sith

Had an early spin session before starting work early this AM and from all of the videos I took, this was the best one.  I keep making weird faces, lol

Thank you Darth_Ravn.  I have a really good Master that's guiding through the process. I didn't realize how addicting it was

One, sometimes two videos a day? Who does that?
That's dedication. Very inspiring.

I've always said I love seeing peoples progression documented. Whether it's someone tightening up a figure eight or working on an angel roll, I always learn something.
Everyday you're getting noticeably, WAY better. And it makes me realize I need to step it up. I'm analyzing my technique again. I was getting lazy. Like Master Resolute says, (I'm paraphrasing here) "always go back to the basics."


Master Elwood, Just a thought, but do you think hand switches should be introduced next? Seems logical to me, but what do I know? Wink

Looking good there, Infinit. Smiley

I've noticed you like that Dark Initiate for spinning. I take it the windows don't bother your hand?

Quite honestly, it was you and Master Elwood that put spinning on my radar and once I got into it with the right direction and instructions, it just got addicting.  Believe it or not, 80% of my flow spins arenít recorded and of the 20% that I do, are mostly to check for and see if Iím doing it right but mainly to have Master Elwood view and help me adjust my form accordingly.

Someone also told me to keep a record of your progression so that youíll know how far youíll come and also to catch any errors you normally wouldnít catch while spinning.   Wink

Master Elwood did mention hand switches so itís funny that you mentioned it

And Iím honored to be your padawan, Master Elwood.   Cheesy Iím motivated and look to perfect my craft with your guidance.  I look forward to the next steps that youíve mentioned

Looking good there, Infinit. Smiley

Thank you SFD! That means a lot. Believe it or not, I prefer the Aeon and Dominix but only one if my Aeons can mute itís sound while my other one and Dominix cannot, so I use the Dark Initiate which is just the same only shorter.  The windows did eat up the skin between my thumb and index finger but it did callus on both hands over time so it doesnít hurt anymore.
