Does anyone know where i can learn the angel concept by bone ho?
its really not that hard. just watch the video over and over.
I just wanna learn how to do the one hand angel without having to turn the hand over.
Its just practice, just flick it up and have mostiure on your hand it helps with the balence.
if you need a tutorial on how to put a card on your thumb it's going to be really hard for you to get advanced in flourishing.
Nothing to do with moisture. I can do it with the driest thumb...
It's all about inertia.
(I got wise tips from Mr. Ho ^^)
you mean you got tips from THE kevin ho?
seriously, just put a little bit of peanut butter on your thumb, and then push down on the top card, and voila!
Yeah THE Kevin Ho... =D
i thought he was talking about bone ho since he is the angel-masta
so did i, unless eugene is carrying on the joke xD
I can get a card on my thumb lol. Its just when i try to do that with only one hand, the only way i can do it is by pushing the card off, turning my hand over, and turning it back, and that leaves me in the angel position. I'm just trying to see where i can learn to do that, but without turning the thumb over. Btw, i can do pretty much everything else with the angel (spins, catches and i'm working on the display)
If you mean doing it in a swift action then I might help you. First the cards need to be in good broken in condition. You basically need to swing your hand swiftly up. It's in a quick wave of the hand up. Keep the thumb stable and with the wrist and fingers get the card to land on your thumb and move your fingers down. Hope you understand what I was writing. I'm sure bone will make a tut soon.
Holding a break or pushing the cards over helps you get the actions down, but once you've mastered that work on doing it with no break.
Well, Kevin Ho met Bone a while back, and from there he learned Angel -The sexy method. So this year I met Kevin. We went to a local McDonalds for Air Conditioning, and I start performing Angel. And he told me... " Don't use sweat to balance it. It's all about intertia"
Hope this helps.
no idea why, but i loved that post.
You need a small amount of moisture just to get the card to lift though, but its 90% intertia as you say.
you don't need any moisture it just makes it slightly easier
