The Forward Over is an Intermediate/advanced level trick. It is a two part trick that involves first, mounting the top of the bar at the back of the swing (an 'uprise') followed by a front flip to the catcher at the top of the swing. I came to Japan with a Forward Over that was decent, safe to the net and that I had caught a few times. In terms of performance this translates as "Yeah, that's great. Let's keep working on that and see how it goes". Not ...
And so, my second city is drawing to a close. I've enjoyed Ota most for the time I've had to explore the area via bicycle. Once we got through the first 10 days, our schedule became quite easy, with one show and practice on weekdays, and three shows each weekend day. This left me with plenty of time to explore.

Everything in the city is laid out and presented in a nice way. Some of the ...
... available are the folding bicycles. These are compact and fold up for easy storage. They also have a heavy frame and are utilitarian in nature. The remaining bicycles choices are children's bicycles and maybe one or two choices of hybrids (mountain bike frame, road bike tires). Performance bikes do exist but they are scarce and (naturally) quite expensive. At the circus I had been offered a couple of bikes for free. One, well used 'granny' bike that ...
