Tips for Footbag Creatvity

Tips for freestyle footbag creativity: 1) Assign NO value to moves or trick elements. 2) Base the difficulty of a move on how difficult it is FOR YOU, not an arbitrary system! 3) Completely separate yourself from outcomes of your trick choices (dada curve is not better or worse than ripwalk, reverse...

Re: Jorden's Journal

After a year of deep introspection, I'm finally back on Facebook.
I'll be debuting a new act at Waterloo Juggling Festival this month.

Re: Competition Survey

Prize money is important for many reasons. - gets the competitors excited - covers expenses for the winners - compensates for time and effort put into training (almost a part-time job worth!) - allows top players to reinvest money into more footbag gear and attending more competitions - provides inc...

Re: Competition Survey

Excellent points, Ken. In terms of overall champion, I think the discrepancy here is not of a fundamental difference but one of scope . The sport of FREESTYLE footbag is already so narrow in scope (in terms of differences in freestyle events and skill sets required), that if nothing encourages full ...

Re: Competition Survey

2. Our sport still uses the ADD system, a system for scoring tricks that is largely impertinent. We want to encourage players to take risks. Tricks should be valued for the amount of training required to achieve them, the complexity (difficult to reproduce on command), required effort, the variety ...

Re: Competition Survey

Interesting post, Jay. Our sport suffers from a lack of long-term planning and insight. It's more and more apparent each passing year. The trouble is in the 80s and 90s a bunch of jocks wearing funky-colored shorts and backwards hats impromptu planned the destiny and trajectory of freestyle competit...

Re: New Footbag Concepts 2015

Is slicing mirage possible as a set? Yeah.
Is it new? I actually did this on video about 10 years ago.

Re: Jorden's Journal

My new act is weeks away from completion. Just needs polishing. :D I finally have access to a video camera again since I sold my good one earlier this year due to hard times. I don't "shred" anymore but my brain still conceptualizes new tricks. Need to make another concepts video. Juggling has reach...

Re: NEW website: MOIRJUGGLER.COM

I let my website expire because I need to update my image and marketing and everything else. New show is still in progress. I want it to look unlike anything the world has ever seen. That means lots of time listening to music, changing my mind (weekly sometimes), researching videos, props, clothing,...
