Posted:Tis not impossible. When there between your legs you gotta bend over a lot and use you're wrists to spin them for a rotation behind you, most people simply go through the legs and then out and thats where they mess up. Try to get your arms as high as possible when there between your legs, don't be shy

Posted:Nightshade: I really feel that you should strongly consider buying the COL 2 video. Alot of the quiestions you ask about moves might be answered on the video. I can think several people on the video doing between the leg moves. And other move quiestions you've posted in the past. It sounds like you know alot of moves already so I don't know how much the video, as a whole, is going to help. Plus then you can stop asking Malcom and others to post new video examples.

Posted:I don't have the means to put myself spinning on the net. Plus, i haven't really spun in a couple of months so i'm out of practice. I'm sure if you put some effort into it you could do it yourself. Visualize it. If you can do a btb butterfly you can do a btl butterfly. You're hands should roughly be in the same spot. Therefore, you can also turn a butterfly between yourlegs. Haven't actualy done it yet, but something i was working on before i stopped practicing.------------------[]Dhuong-Vu Truong==== []Dhunky ====

Posted:Why are you against shortening your strings? Do a butterfly, Wrap the strings around your hand, on the downswing guide your poi through your legs, which should be at least shoulder width apart. If the poi hit the floor, shorten them a bit more. If they hit you, change the angle, or bend into it more. Mine always seem to aim for my thigh. They will do a full rotation beetween the legs and then on the downswing in front, guide them back out again.I can honestly say I only remember Robert Michael doing much through the legs on COL2, and he also did it on COL1.If you don't have anything to watch then visualize it, and practice. If you practice everyday for the next two months you may find you don't *need* the video. ------------------Pele Higher, higher burning fire...making music like a choir...http://www.pyromorph.com

Posted:I don't shorten my strings when i do between the legs moves.A hint for the future,when you're doing btl moves, [YOU] move infront/behind of the poi and not the other way around.To understand it more you gotta figure out some poi theory on how the poi are spinning both forwards and backwards at the sametime, depending on which side of the poi you're on.------------------[]Dhuong-Vu Truong==== []Dhunky ====

Posted:Why don't you just start with one poi. Ok then i'll put this in easy terms. - Swing forward with your left hand. - Make the poi go through your legs- before it goes on the upswing and hits your back, turn 180. - Turning either way will work.------------------[]Dhuong-Vu Truong==== []Dhunky ====

(well with one had... gotta try with 2 now)Ok you mean this you pull yer poi BTL then Do a 180 turn to pull it out ?!?!?you dont have to swing them like thisIf it get between yer legs you dont have to swing them for example if it yer left leg and you swiming with yer ring hand you dont have to swing them to the right side of yer leg you just swing the poi to his left side BTL and then pull it out doing a 180 turn in the same side that is?!?!?!? :O im right?!?!?! phunky!?!?!If that is i guess the key was the turning i dont remenber you telling me that

Posted:I put it in easy terms, turning 180 was an easy way to explain it. You DON'T have to turn 180 at all but, all you need to do is a little shuffle of your feet. When you find out that little shuffle of your feet is exactly like a 180 you'll hit yourself in the head for not seeing it before. Anyways, i'll let you fool around with that for a while, hope it opens some doors for you.------------------[]Dhuong-Vu Truong==== []Dhunky ====

Posted:err, think about it for a second before i tell you. How are you going to aim the poi between you're legs when there going in reverse. you can't, but what you can do is quickly turn 180, put the poi between your legs from forward weave (or forward spinning), and then then do another 180 and you should be in reverse spinning, go to reverse weave. Actually, you can go between the legs from reverse weave but you have to enter the legs from behind not infront.Most of btl moves are just low turns that you step infront of so it looks like its harder than it is.It took me a couple of days to get btl moves concepts down, another couple of days of practice to get them at an efficient level. ------------------[]Dhuong-Vu Truong==== []Dhunky ====

You know i noticed yes you can do the reverse weave but thats pulling from the back the problem is that BOTH of hands gotta be on the same side pulling from the backi mean reverse spinning is way easier.. but going from a reverse weave pulling from with both hands ont he same side seems dunno really really really hard to me... you can do that reverse weave without doing that you said up?

Posted:Like i said before, from reverse spinning you can't go through you're legs infront because obviously they are spinning the wrong way. You can though to between your legs from behind and turn it so i comes to forward weave.------------------[]Dhuong-Vu Truong==== []Dhunky ====

Posted:I've seen people do moves between the legs with longer strings by incorporating a wrap where you wrap it around your leg and then don't use the conventional un-wrap method, but spin around and use the movement of your leg to unwrap it. This left enough room between, but unless you want to go to shorter strings their isn't a whole lot of options.Love always,Spanky[This message has been edited by Spanky (edited 23 March 2002).]
