If the video description is true, youtube user ’99timshi’ has ‘packed in knees’ and so to ease the pain of walking, he walks around everywhere on his hands instead.
However, I don’t believe this to be 100% accurate, but even so, Still an excellent video! some amazing balance and stamina there, and a lovely heartwarming tale!
Thanks to MCP for the link
Greg Hamilton has just mailed the Ministry and tells us that his award winning film about Chinlone, Mystic ball the movie, is now available to buy on DVD
Last minute Christmas shopping, this could be the number 1 Contact Jugglers stocking filler of the year (Ok, forth place after a new ball and a copy of Multiball Contact, and the InIsolation DVD…but obviously, you’ve already got those, haven’t you).
The Ministry is now recommending DVDs that it hasn’t even seen! whatever next. We’ll get a review up in a couple of weeks – when our copy has arrived.
Drew – Who is very happy because he’s been waiting 2 years to see this film, which has never yet screened in the UK.
Above is the promo for Mystic Ball – the Movie.
Chinlone is hard to define. It’s a team sport without an opposing team, part dance, part meditation. There is no competition, no winners and no losers. The game is back-breakingly difficult, yet is played by almost all Burmese, from young children to octogenarians. – writes Greg Hamilton
In answer to the next question, her name is: Su Su Hlaing
Chinlone is the national sport of Burma/Myanmar, where Mystic ball the movie was filmed. Chinlone festivals, are often played in the grounds of Buddhist temples. This year in Burma, sadly a LOT of Buddhist monks have been killed by the military government. Those monks can be seen in the trailer above, wearing red/orange robes sitting in the audience watching the Chinlone.
Can you guess, who are my current favourite choice for the EJC final show next year?
Gene Yoshikawa (seen standing proudly in his green t-shirt at the end of the video) gives us this compilation video of pole-vaulting atheletes. After seeing the first 10 or so jumps, you’ll realize just how totally bizarre pole vaulting is.
Some.. umm.. amazing gymnastics. Its friday… thanks to Daydream for the link.

Silva Paolo busks outside the Pompidou Centre in Paris, France. Does some pretty cool stuff with an acrylic. His backward roll fooled me for a while there. The vdeo picks up after a minutes or two.
Silva Paolo… any relation to Silver Paul? 😉
Hoop diving, Acrobatics, buy lipitor online overnight delivery, Equilibristics, Armchair Manipulation, Chinese Pole, Roue Cyr… this group does it all.
