This move was just something to do after you iguana lifted and held pencil for a while. Okay before I get down I'll hook my foot into this split thingy.
Then there was this shot.
With this one shot this move became a favorite.
Angles are everything and I'm not sure I like it as much on the other side so there may not be a place in every performance for it. Due to the angle factor I have found that I like the result the most when I lift up into pencil from the floor like in the first part of the video. I do show how to do it from the air because every move has at least 2 ways to get into it and I try to show as many ways as I can.
Violator. This move is also called the violator. I could not remember that in the video and actually only came across someone's posting with that name of it in the last 2 weeks hence the timing for the last 2 tutorials. They kind of go together because they are similar but like all moves that are alike, just because you can do one doesn't mean you'll have an easy time doing the other.
Even though I say in the video that the pole is where you think it is you still want to try to be off to one side or the other and make sure to put the pole on the fattest part of your butt that you can.
This move is a staple for stage performance. It is more about sitting on your arm/wrist than smashing your leg against the pole, however if anything is to be pushed into the pole make sure it is your leg.
The top hand is the most important, be sure to grip well. Before you try to pull your bottom hand off the pole it is helpful to pull your body back in towards the pole with your top hand to alleviate some of the pressure on the bottom hand. This will make it much easier to get the hand out of the way.
