Flourishing over 55

Unread postby scedcard2 » Sun Jan 31, 2016 3:34 pm  

Hi , Yes i am over 55, I have been flourishing for 3 years , Beats crossword puzzles !!! Granted I dont have the dexterity of a 25 year old , But , Flourishing cards is a great way to build strength in the hands , It is great fun when you get a flourish down with fluency , Syble is a good start , then move to more difficult flourishes , Do Revelusion cuts all day long , Thing is dont grasp the deck like a vise , Relax , Dan Madison and Tobias Levin are a good follow to heed !, Practice , Practice , practice But make it fun , Yes you will drop cards, so do the pro's , All and All the outcome is gratifing , Flourishing cards is the Bomb !!!!!

Hey ! Thanks ,, I believe that a good flourish is not done 100 miles an hour ,,, The best looking flourish is fluent , and being able to see all the moves as art ,, personabley fallow Dan Madison and Tobias Levin , Very different styles of flourishing , with intense challenges , as it is The sky is the limit !!!

Welcome scedcard2. I'm 57 myself and have been doing cardistry for a year. I'm a big fan of the Virts, both their cards and flourishes. A great group of guys with super attitudes. Yes, it gets frustrating but I find that I do get a little better each time I practice. I'm never going to perform for others so it's all about fun for me. And a good excuse to buy more cards! Great for hand strength and dexterity. Enjoy your time here on the forum. :D
