I'd also like some comment on the experience of the Mad Robin - all the
callers I know really emphasize the "look at your partner while you do this"
but, like the gypsy hey, I find it a bit, um, rude, to ignore the woman I'm
passing in a Mad Robin while I stare at my partner (whom I may not feel like
staring at in the first place, much as I may enjoy his friendship).
I prefer to catch the eye of the other lady in a "girl-power, isn't this
fun" way, since we usually start the move by passing by each other, then
quickly shift to my partner and smile - so much more community-friendly,
even flirtatious, IMHO, than the "I can't take my eyes off you" stare with
person who is, after all, usually not someone I...can't take my eyes off.
What do the rest of you think?

That would be an interesting discussion topic. Has anyone encountered a
mad robin that is reversed?
I can't recall one. I know sometimes it's the gents passing in front and
sometimes it's the ladies, but that just depends on where you start from. I
think a mad robin always follows the dosido path, just depends on if you
start from the gent below, or gent above.

If you teach it that way, make sure that it is actually the path of a Do
