Posted:I don't think you should think of poi as a bunch of combos. I could list you an infinite number of combos but in the end you'll come to one conclusion. 1) Every move is linkable to any other moveGranted, some moves do flow better together.Maybe to make it easier groups these types of moves that flow well together (i like to call them series)Weave/windmill series - Moves that fall under this categories are weaves, btb weaves, windmills, split-time figure 8's, split-time shooting the moon. Chasing the sun series - moves where the poi spin together, chasing the sun, shooting the moon, tri-weave (don't know any other name for it), similar to the weave/windmill series.Butterfly series - Low waves, high waves, X'ing, Butterflies, btb butterfly, split-time butterfly, thread the needle etc. Basically moves that have the illusion of light bounching off each other to the spectatorThen you have your showy moves like wraps, Giants and jumps, between the legs moves etcThat is the great thing about poi are all the options that you can do. This is a small guideline, maybe it will help you maybe it won't. But remember every move can be linked to any other move, this is just something to maybe help you out. So i dunno, do your weave and windmills. wrap it on your arm to change the direction of one of them so it goes to the butterfly series fool around there, repeat.------------------[]Dhuong-Vu Truong==== []Dhunky ====[This message has been edited by phunky (edited 01 September 2001).][This message has been edited by phunky (edited 01 September 2001).]

Posted:Shooting the moon is the term me and my friends use for a low chasing the sun. It's a common move used by a lot of people, just that no one has really named it. X'ing is like a split-time butterfly just that the plains are crossing each other so it makes an X, some people say it looks like an atom. Oh ya, split-time in general is notmoving your hands together but alternating. To do x'ing you move your hands as if you were playing on the drums. Hope that helps a bit.------------------[]Dhuong-Vu Truong==== []Dhunky ====

Posted:shooting the moon - one hand does the forward low wave, the other hand does the reverse low wave.well if you think about it, a 3-point ttn is basically turning a ttn on your left and right side with out turning your body. There's a bunch of variations for moves where all you have to do is either move your body before the move or delay it. Remember when you learned the weave you were facing forward with the weave in front of you? Well i rarely ever do that anymore. All of my weaves i tuck under my arm or over my shoulder so my body is facing the side. Why do i do this? because extra body motions give a move a better look and to maintain "the circle" (go to http://www.homeofpoi.com/ubb/Forum3/HTML/000256.html
if you wanna know what im talking about)------------------[]Dhuong-Vu Truong==== []Dhunky ====
