View Full Version : speed change

At 7 seconds how do I achieve this illusion? is it pretty much a dimestop followed by a slow movement? thats how I been practicing this so far but im not sure if thats the correct way to practice this. I also notice some people moving at a fast pace and then out of no where they transition into a slow motion state. Any advice or tips on how to practice this?Thanks in advance.

that is a really great technique to use on songs that go from like fast to slow
as in the video..

im pretty sure that it is called matrix
you just do any fast motions and transition it into slow movement
but you have to make it seem like the move you were doing slowed down

example.. walking normally and then going slow-mo walking

something like that...

Not too sure, but how I do it is just a hard dimestop followed by moving at a much slower pace.

its all about timing more than how fast or how slow u go.

dimestop to speed control + perfect timing = success

Abstract, also check the speed changes in the U-Min video and the ching a ling one.

try not to practice super fast into super slo at first...ur gnna b sloppier for a longer period of time...
first get the mechanics of like a normal speed to a slowER speed...like ur about to reach for something in a desk drawer that u kno is there and when u look u slow down ur hand cuz its not there and now ur searching for it...

then when u have control over that kick up the speed differences....

Like the name suggests "Speed change".

How can there be change if there is nothing to change from?

the way i see it there are 4 steps in warping, speed changes, speed shifts and speed control

normal speed - the speed shift - the crisp stop or dimestop - be in a different motion from the normal speed

Icon can you go into more detail with the 4 steps? I dont understand sorry. your tutts are hella sick by the way.

08-12-2008, 10:21 AM
in my opinion those are the steps you want to work on

step one - find a comfortable motion you want to be in

step 2 is working on the quick shift

step 3 is the the clean stop to transition which is

step 4 into a slower motion than the normal motion or you can do it faster motion if you feel like.

thanks by the way.

in that 2nd video at 2:49 to 2:55 that controlled fall to the floor
how do you do it

That move is deceptively simple. All you are doing is going from a standing up position to a kneeling on the floor position. By bending back you balance your weight more on your feet than if you just went "thud" on your knees. If your going all the way down to the floor, think of spreading your weight between your knees, feet, and head (or hands, or whatever top part of you actually gets to the floor). A few things to prep for this position:

- stretch your quads.
- STRETCH YOUR HIP FLEXORS (if you don't, you will hyperextend your lower back and compress your lumbar vertebrae)
- sit in the final position on the floor to make sure it is comfortable before trying to drop into it.
- DO NOT turn your feet out so that your weight is on the inside of the foot. This will fuck up your knees royally. You want to land on the top of your foot, so your feet are pointing the same way as your knees (feet pointing to right angle of knee =BAD)
- use knee pads
- practice on a futon, or with a few pillows behind you until your confident.

ABSOLUTELY DO NOT DO THIS IF YOU HAVE BAD KNEES OR A BAD BACK. If you want to continue having good knees and back, warm up and stretch thoroughly, no matter how young you are.

Caveat: I've only done this in bare feet, not in shoes. But from the video, it seems to work the same way.

the popper up top ,mike song im pretty sure, the way he does it in real life most of the time ive seen is basically just be moving toward a direction at a higher speed and then change quickly to a slow speed on a emphasized beat, and the trick is to keep speeds very different and at the same time keep them consistent whether u r currently slow or fast if that makes sense =\
