I wanted to thank you guys so much for the positive feedback I received for my ring routine I posted here the other day. A few people have asked me since I posted it what inspirations I have and what my 4 ring routine looks like. Shoot Ogawa, Masahiro Yanagida, and Kim Silverman have all heavily contributes to my handling for my 4 ring routine.

Here is the video link (Dick hopefully this link works haha)
https://youtu.be/BjD7Vn0TIZY

My goal was to do 3 things wit this routine:

1 Shorten it: Ninja Rings is beautiful but has always been too long for my taste. When I used to perform it people seemed to be over it half way through since at that point I was essentially juggling. Yes it is gorgeous to watch and entertaining when performed well, but it’s “wow” factor wears off halfway through. An5-6 phase ring routine is more than plenty I have noticed, especially since after this routine I am going to more than likely go into Ninja+

2. Get it off the table: I cut out all the moves that require a table so I can perform this at strolling events which are 90% of my gigs.

3 Get it in their hands: The hardest part about performing linking Rings is dealing with people who want to examine them. Obviously you cannot hand them out to be examine outright, so I have routines this performance in such a way that they feel like all 4 rings were examined during the routine. They have no reason to ask to examine them at the end because they are already convinced there are no openings.

Hope you enjoy it! Feel free to offer feedback as always as well as some tips you may have on Ninja Rings in gerberal! I’m putting together a lecture on the closeup rings and would love as much feedback as possible and see what you guys think about it.

Yeah, a lot of the times, "Less is indeed More." Great "abridgments." Smile

Again, just beautiful work! Smile You trimmed the grass just wonderfully in making the effect your own...really stunning right up close. Smile

Thank you so much for such kind words my friends! My goal has been to get more people performing ring magic again and inspiring those who have always felt it wasn’t a good effect to want to give it a try. So far a few people have stepped forwards saying that they want to try ring magic since watching my routines. This makes me so happy!!!

I must admit it has got me very tempted to have ago. its not something I have every had an interest in doing, but seeing your routine is making me tempted. I know there is a long way to go be fractionally as smooth as that! Any advice on where to start and I may have to add a few items to my shipping list!

Very good, but is almost the massado routine. Liked it though. I use the massado rings and routine, and it slays every time.
SHAZAM!
