This is one of the tutorials on my DVD. So it's a bit of a conflict for me to put a really good tutorial on this website and then there is no reason for my DVD to exist, savvy? So you'll find a collection of other people's tutorials, my old tutorials, move variations and move discussion, but a modern tutorial, that you probably won't find, sorry. I'm hoping to get them online soon, but until then, check below.

You can go check them out here: DVDs or go directly to the Staff Manipulation DVD Website:


Fishtails are one beat figures of eight on the back of the hand. Lots of tutorials have been written about them. But what I would suggest, as in the video, is to practise them one half at a time, a lot, then link them up.

Forwards is harder than reverse, no matter what people say. (They learned forwards first) Typically for the forwards fishtail there is one transition that is super hard and makes your hand curl around. Practise more. And make it look nicer than I do. (Right click, save target as... )
