So, this might be kind of a pointless topic, but I was thinking about this this morning.
The stages of mastering a trick or element.
first, you break it down step-by-step
then once you have it learned, you try to smooth out those rough edges so that it becomes one fluid trick rather than bunch of steps that you do.
Once you start accumulating several tricks, you can start to see how different elements can be pulled from each and blended together to make different tricks.
I absolutely love it when I learn a new trick that opens up a wide variety of possibilities for putting to use random little mini tricks and elements that are in the bucket. This is basically how combos are made. And this is how individual unique play-styles are formed.
I feel like I’m at a point now where I’ve learned just enough to be able to explore and build my own tricks. This is such a strange hobby, isn’t it? Those who get it, get it. There are virtually an endless amount of possibilities when it comes to building new tricks.
What about you? Have you learned anything recently that opened up a new realm of possibilities for trick circles?
