There's a gray area between "flipping" and "twirling"

It's what I like to call "Flirling", which can be seen a few places in the middle of some of my old videos.

Here's a video describing what can happen when you "Flirl": http://youtu.be/ty9QSiVC2g0 It's all gyroscopic precession. Becoming familiar with it can make for some vary unusual balisong manipulations. Have fun!

EDIT: Here's a video of me "Flirling" http://youtu.be/JwYwQvuYrGI

EDIT #2: Best done while drunk.

I noticed that in your videos.
I've tried to copy it, but it just doesn't look as smooth

You've got to "let go" of your hands and let it happen. When you're just beginning an inter-finger-twirl, think about kicking it outward with another finger to make it spin. After a while, you'll "get it".

    On JD some kimuras go up for sale. Just make sure you post an intro. Also I think I saw a guy on craigslist with 2 so you should search that

    wonder why i had to use a proxy to finally get access here ....
  • 16:41
    ?? haven't changed anything here.
  • 16:44
    how longs that been going on for you?

  • 17:53
    about a year now ....
  • 17:55
    it only lets me have access via the proxy if i try iot without it, it will login my account in and then throw me out while me account stays logged in
  • 17:57
    it started right around the time this CA black skin became the default when you visit the site
  • 20:42
    i switched your preferences to the brushed metal skin. if it's a problem with the skins, that will fix it.
  • 26 Sep 2014
  • 12:29
    hahahaha it worked!!!! i didnt have to use a proxy this time!
  • 27 Sep 2014
  • 13:37
    andddd its back to the proxy
  • 17:41
    ahhh... I remeber this. the cookie used to remember your login session for this site is corrupted. you need to delete cookies.
  • 20:06
    tried that deleted board cookies and complete internet options delete cookies ... its still doing it ...
  • 20:11
    well google chrome lets me login just fine it may be the fact that i was using fire fox
  • 20:17
    well now that it seems to be working again hopefully ill be here more often lol
  • 20:38
    yeah, it's a little tricky for firefox
  • 20:39
  • 20:41
    in the privacy tab, tell it to use custom settings so it will show the 'Show Cookies' button; search 'brokenbrains' and delete all the cookies it finds.
  • 20:45
    should be something like phpbb3_oj51s
  • 20:52
    also make sure cookies are enabled in general, and not blocked for this site
  • 28 Sep 2014
