Without a doubt Cheppum Panthum is the most complex version of the cups and balls you will ever learn.
It is a lot easier to learn Cheppum Panthum from real time 'live' instruction.
In addition to the book I am also putting together a list for 'experienced' cup and ballers who are interested in putting together a 3 day class.
We can have it when there is a convention in Las Vegas and you are here anyway.
I am still releasing this in print but for those who seriously want to add this to their repertoire, this is the fastest and easiest way.

A workshop sounds like a fantastic option. A little too far for me to travel sadly Smile

This link works for me:

In some ways, I preferred the previous video, but this one is also excellent. I am looking forward to studying the material.

Thank you, Mr. Kosnitzky!

Your right.
It wasn't easy getting that chick back to my pad.
I am putting the old one up also.

Thank you, although your comment does leave me somewhat disillusioned about the effectiveness of the cups & balls . . . .

Besides that, though, I think the original video shows that the Indian cups & balls are nearly angle-proof and can be performed in an almost surrounded situation, no?

I have not discussed this with Gary yet, but here you go in public:

The pacing and structure of the Indian cups is different than what we do here ala "the great demonstrator taps his wand" or that done lighter.

So I'm real curious about finding a similar cadence/flow that resonates here - so the trick can work as designed for audiences here.

I have performed normal cups and balls routines completely surrounded and only had to make a few sleight changes to the final load sequences. The traditional Indian cups and balls is not quite as angle-friendly once you get beyond the 180 degrees from your left to your right, across the front of your body. That is to say, if you are using traditional techniques, anyway.

I would also recommend the Pete Biro book - there is a lot of great information in there on this subject, and it should be on the shelf of every serious student/performer of the cups and balls.

Between a cold and work stuff ( FAA, fussing on projects... ) will be pretty distracted till early next week.

In the mean time - was going to ask if a clear digital video record of what really gets done and where has/is being made. Even if it's a long routine and each performer's version is an hour long and done on the street captured handheld (of course tip generously) - thinking like an anthropologist for a minute here. Culture as is - to be respected.

One has to wonder if a quick trip, a slip of the lip or even a mail order box to learn about chop-chop, PK, IT etc could do the same damage as has been done by "well intentioned" visitors and anthropologists before. Lost languages. Lost skills. Lost knowledge. Over there for that group a few PK rings and sets of chop-chop could change everything in less than a generation, perhaps even just a few years.

Walking on eggs,

Gary, Just got a parcel of your coconut shell Hindu Cups and Balls. They are authentic. Very nicely done and all handmade. I am really surprised at their quality and finish. The wand is also a work of art. I highly recommend them to everyone inserted in practising the Hindu Cups: The oldest Trick in the world, which I am convinced was born in India and not in Egypt, or add a work of art to your collection. These will soon become collectors items. Thanks again Gary.

When I learn how to I will post a picture.
