It is a hard one to learn! But you have it now. Try to turn into it by weaving forward, turnning left swing your right hand behind your back, followed by your left, and WAL-LA! You are spinning frward weave behind your back! After that try spinning out of it.I know this is a lot, but its something to strive for. something you can put in a show!Good luck,Ski

Posted:That sounds like a good next goal for me ski, i just got my btb weave reasonably clean, and i can go into it from a backwards weave, so turning into it shouldn't be too far off. I can forsee some pretty awesome combos with that.

Posted:Well, I have the btb weave down for the most part. I can do it like 90% of the time pretty good. Sometimes the get going haywire and never fail to hit me square in the face. It actually pissing me off pretty good. (Thoughts of burning my poi in a slow painful death). Anyone have any suggestions on what I can do? I twist my torso with the weave, and that has cut down a lot on hitting myself, but not enough. Is it just a practice thing? This is my third day of being able to do it... Im going to go try what you said Ski now ski...------------------~I dont care if they eat me alive, Ive got better things to do than survive. ~Ani[This message has been edited by Shibaki (edited 17 May 2001).]
