Really nice! Love the speed, slow and smooth and still fast enough to not look like you didn't practice. Good stuff!

it looks so... under-practiced, yet i know how much work was needed to reach that level, don't get me wrong, it's nice, and i know they are all very very very hard to do, but it just looks a bit weird...

"under practised" is not how I would describe this style at all. He clearly has practised. But I think I know what you are getting at la0o9; the style is rough around the edges.. "street"!.. not perfect, or polished, but definitely "real". I really like the vid

I never polish a move until it's perfect looking, even though I can I like to keep things more real and natural, this was inspired by Tobias Levin. But nonetheless thanks a lot guys, I needed to have some feedback Also, if you could, please comment, rate and subscribe on YouTube, it means a lot to me (I want my channel to be discovered a bit more). Thanks in advance.

under-practiced for me means "not yet reach perfection", so i think i described it very accurately.

Nice man - from a non-flourisher . Although you could experiment more with the editing and camera positions, for example, cut down on the amount of quick flashes because it distracts the viewer from what you are doing. I also noticed that some of your skill was captured slightly out of the frame.

Ah I see la0o9, now I see what you mean. It's just that to me "under-practised" means "not ready for performance yet". But I believe this to be a pretty good performance so I would not say any of the moves are "under practised" at all, in fact they are quite well practised, just not performed in the style that some flourishers might like.

Peace
