4 / 7. Throwing

Below you will find our step-by-step GIF series, and at the bottom of the page our tutorial video.

1. 1. STARTING POSITION

2. Tossing/ throwing up

Take the handsticks in your hands and lay the two ends of the flowerstick on top of them.

Toss/ throw the flower stick up horizontally, then catch it. Bounce your hands and the handsticks in them while you do this. Follow the movement of the flowerstick with them.

3. Rotated tossing /throwing

4. Small throwing from Tic-Tac

Toss/ throw the flowerstick up, but this time swing harder with one of the handsticks so that the flowerstick can make a circle in the air.

During tilting (Tic-Tac), at one stage toss/ throw the flowerstick upwards harder, then – after it has made a circle in the air – continue the Tic-Tac.

5. Big throwing from Tic-Tac

6. Throwing from helicopter

This time, toss/ throw it harder. The closer to the centre you swing/ hit the flowerstick, the higher it will fly. If you swing/ hit closer to the end, it will make it spin faster.

While doing the helicopter, lift/ push a larger one on the CENTER of the flowerstick, then continue to do the helicopter.

Advanced Level

7. Throwing from one handed spin

8. Throwing with right & left hand

In a one-handed spin, toss/ throw the flowerstick upwards when it is in horizontal position. When tossing/ throwing, aim for the centre of the flowerstick.

When you feel you’re out of challenges with your stronger hand, try throwing with the other hand too. It creates some great tricks 🙂

About Throwing

There are also many important flowerstick movements in the throw.  In short: Keep it, throw it, catch it! Try to get a better feel for the weight, grip and balance of the stick.

Common mistake:

Many people think they are great at throwing when they can throw the flowerstick high. However, this is only half the battle at best. Because the important thing is that you can catch it afterwards. So it’s worth trying with smaller throws first, and then, when you’re also confident in catching, switching to higher throws.

IMPORTANT

If you want to make the throw really impressive, try to combine it with other tricks. For example, tossing up from a one-handed spin, and then continuing with another trick as continuously as possible after the catch.
