NOTE: The descriptions in this and the following "Expert" section will become increasingly long, dull, and oh, yes, have not understandable big words.
1. Butterfly Kick
The Butterfly Kick takes a lot of jumping skill. To start, the Butterfly is a flying leg-over cross-body inside kick. Sound like fun? Here's what to do: 1)Jump in the air like Superman. 2) When you jump, have one leg (right, let's say) go up and over the already airborne bag. 3) When the leg that is going over the bag is directly above the bag, start to bring the other leg (that would be left in this case) up into a Cross-Body position. 4)Trick: Don't just go into the position, kick the bag on the way up. Still confused? Take a look at the Butterfly Kick Pictures
Have you looked at the Butterfly Kick? Same idea, just replace "Step #4" with the following. 4)Once you've gotten your leg over the bag and you are somehow floating in mid-air waiting for your next instruction, bring the bag down using the Delay Principle. You end in a Clipper Delay, or Cross-Body Inside Delay.
What a fun move. This takes a long time to master. The Whirl Stall uses a Clipper Delay twice. To start, you guessed it, set with a Clipper Delay. Bring the bag up into the air and then switch support legs. The leg you were holding the delay with is now holding your body and the leg that was holding your body is now going to move really fast. Bring the original support leg behind, around to the outside and back to the front of the bag. Then switch support legs again. The original support leg lands to support again, and the original delay leg comes back to catch the bag in another Clipper Delay. In the finish, your support leg has circled the bag from back to front.
The Osis takes a lot of time to learn well, and I consider it the entrance into very difficult moves in footbag. It is confusing to see and to read. To start, set the bag with a toe delay. Then pass the bag to one side of your body. Then turn 180 degrees in the other direction of where you passed the bag. (i.e. if you passed to the right, turn left. Pass left, turn right.) The bag should pass behind your back. Then (bear with me here, the words are hard) catch the bag in a clipper delay using the foot that is on the same side of where you passed the bag.
Trick: When you catch the bag at the end of the trick, don't actually stop the bag on your foot. You can slowly roll the bag on your foot. Also, don't kick the bag, it just counts as a Clipper.Osis Pictures
Like an Osis. This trick is really a Wrap with a spin half-way through it. To start, set the bag with a toe delay. Then bring the bag back up and start to do an inside delay. Here's where you go- Huh? With the bag coming into an inside delay, start to spin towards the support leg side of the body on your support leg while carrying the bag on an inside delay under the turning support leg. You end in a Cross-body position 180 degrees turned from where you started. Don't stop your motion, release the bag as you would a Wrap.
This move is almost all muscle speed. The idea is to circle the footbag twice and catch it in a toe delay. You really have to have fast muscles for this move. One trick you can do is do the first circle pretty high up, and then the second circle lower, like a normal Around the World Delay. Practice, as in any move, is the key here.
The Double Leg Over takes a bit of practice. To start, set the bag with a right toe delay. Then, do the motion of the Mirage, but don't finish it with a toe delay. After your left leg has gone around the bag [inside to out(mirage motion)], bring your right leg over the top of the bag and down to catch the bag in another right toe delay. One thing, when your left leg is close do done with it's motion, bring the right leg up to get an early start on it's motion. Yes, this means that both legs are in the air at the same time. It is necessary though. If you wait until you left leg can support your right, you can't finish the move.
This is a skill and height move. The idea of the eclipse is to catch the bag in the air on an inside delay while your other leg is jumping over the catching leg. Start like this. Be able to get your inside delay foot out in front of you so the other leg can hop over it. The trick is to catch the bag on your foot when the other leg is above it. Set the bag out in front of you. Have your delay foot in the air when you start the move. Then initiate the delay. At the same time, jump with your support leg over the delay foot. Catch the bag in mid-air and bring it slowly down. Then plant your support foot, the trick is not to jostle the bag, and end the move in a Clipper Delay (Cross-Body Inside Delay).
The Symposium Mirage Delay is just a Mirage , but off of the ground. You set with a toe delay. Then bring the bag into the air. When you bring the bag into the air, your setting leg follows. Then circle the bag with the other leg with both legs in the air. The key is to get high enough so that when your leg is circling the bag, it has enough time to land and support the delay on the other foot. See the Mirage for more information.
NOTE: "Symposium" means that when you have a dexterity move, the catching leg does not hit the ground while you do the move.
The Paradox Mirage is not much more difficult than the Mirage. The difference between the Mirage and the Paradox Mirage is 7 letters. Just kidding. The difference is that you circle the bag from outside-in, not inside-out. This means that you go to the outside, up, over and down around the bag, not like the Mirage where you go to the inside, up over and down to the outside to do the Dexterity.Paradox Mirage Pictures
The drifter is a mirage that you don't catch in a toe delay, but in a Clipper Delay. You set the bag with a toe delay. Bring the bag back into the air in front of you. Switch support legs and go around the bag with the original support leg from under to inside, up, over and to the outside. Here's the difference between this and the Mirage. Instead of switching support legs again, stay on the set leg as a support leg. "Drift" a little bit so that the dexterity leg can come into a Cross-Body position and catch the bag.
