I'm working on a rather complicated way to get into it from an upside down move on the pole directly into it. Doing this causes a tremendous pull on the right hand and often my grip just isn't enough to hold me as I flip and twist from being upside down on the pole to being in this superman flying position. So about 1/3 of the time I attempt the trick I actually lose my grip and fall off the pole to the ground. So at this point I'm only attempting this trick about 2 feet off the ground (so I don't have far to fall).
The only way I can think of to get over this falling thing is to do the trick over and over again as often as possible until I eventually can get it right every time. This might explain the bruises on my legs.
