Confined-Space Footbagging

After you have developed your solo footbag skills in an open space, one of the most stimulating environments in which to footbag can be the confined space. Find a room around 15'x15', and start hacking.

The famous cellist Yo-Yo Ma enjoyed the creative challenge faced on occassions when one of the strings would break during a live performance. This is the sort of creativity that the confined space can offer you -- you don't have much room in which to manoeuver, so you must creatively make the best of what you have.

You will discover that the walls, far from being your enemies, become your friends. You will find that the experience is like having four people to footbag with -- those stray kicks will be intercepted by the wall and volleyed back to you. Makes for an excellent practice environment.
