Jake and Lori jammed at our usual indoor location (Multnomah Arts Ctr) in the gym tonight. The stereo didn’t work, so we had to play to the music in our heads. That apparently didn’t slow us down in peeling out some complicated individual combos. Jake pulled out a kick series with a right, left, and heel kick to a bad attitude catch in addition to his multiple spins to catches and his signature 4 against skid moves. Being impressionable and all, Lori figured out a few against skid maneuvers herself, including a left hand set under right leg to a right-hand behind the back skid rim pull to a catch. We also spent the last few minutes of our 1.5 hour jam to video more moves to post on Heinsville web-site so stayed tuned and y’all come back now! – LD
Today’s PDX jam featured guest jammer Mary Lowry, along with Lisa, Lori, and me (Jake). We had a sweet, indoor, mob-op session with the disc bouncing between us like a pinball on nearly every move. Thanks to Mary’s presence, we also had lots counter spin practice. Some highlights included Mary’s gracefull cove pulls with BOTH spins and Lori’s self set Gitis. Of course move of the day has to go to Lisa, Mary, and I for a sick counter co-op which involved everyone’s nails, a couple skids, and then a 4 roll series featuring both forward and inverted chest rolls. As the jam wound down, the scene was Lori practicing her kick brushes. While she didn’t hit the same right foot, left foot, right foot behind the left leg combo from the last jam, it was still a joy to watch.
