Video Tech Blog #7: more pendulums, 1.5s, flowers

A butterfly flower stall I was shown a couple weeks ago, plus more variations on the butterfly 1.5s--including a vertical variant. Also some of the techniques I'm using to practice antispin flowers. If anybody has any better exercises, let me know.

Video Tech Blog #6: Atomic fountain, trifoil flowers

A couple variations on trifoil flower hybrids--turning with them and a same direction version Lucas showed me this weekend. Also using the atomic weave as a fountain to draw a square in wall plane.

Reverse atomic weave variation on the notcoleman3 and turning with it, a funky new pendulum idea, and turning with butterfly flowers. Simple yet pretty.

Video Tech Blog #4: Hybrid/Antibrids, atomic weaves

Based upon feedback last week, includes a clarification of what constitutes a hybrid vs. an antibrid, triangle antispin flower antibrid and cateye/isolation antibrid, an atomic weave, and a cool little triangle antispin flower pattern Sean Stogner and I worked out over the weekend.

Video Tech Blog #2: More 1.5s, meltdowns

More 1.5 and pendulum variations, including behind-the-head, a meltdown variant, turning with 1.5 opposites and same direction, and an interesting take on meltdowns. Sorry about the crappy audio--my normal camera wasn't working.
