This space is for all those funksters busy improving their technique by learning new moves - made-up or traditional.



Tell us all about it! We love hearing about our fellow poiers/staffies/misc. toyers succeeding with new things biggrin

It's just hard to keep up with it all sometimes, so if we keep it together you'll be certain to get a little feedback.



here a pat on the back in advance from me



::flash enthusiastically pats your back::

the real kick with that combo is to do the transitions while tangled ubbloco i.e butterfly tangle hit one poi off the arm into weave tangle. and back the other way.





must gently disagree. as able to do both and this one(not tangled) is not only more confusing, but beautifuller too.

anyway.

i've been slack. and not learnt anything new for ages.

WOOHOO!

Finally got the reverse 3bt weave! =]

i'm extatic. didn't think i'd ever be able to make it work. I look like a monkey that got ahold of some crack and tennis balls, but i got it to work! yay me =]

now, just to figure out how to actually do butterflys, and i'll be set =]

Weird hyperloop thing I don't know the name of. Start in wall plane and start your tangle, do a full 360 (including buzzsaws at 90 and 270 degrees) and then untangle. I guess it would be a 360 buzzsaw hyperloop?

yep smile
often compared with 3 in one hand and 5 cascade for 'difficulty'.

sorted a nice multiplex entrance into async 4 shower from normal fountain.
now i just need a way to stop the shower!

3 ball pirouettes were *really* close too.
i think i might have them next time i try on even ground biggrin

p.s. i possibly had a little assistance wink

Off the top of my head



Loads of cocktail barman tricks.



1 beat same time parallels with doubles high and low with 1 beat 360 s ubblove



Loads of 3 ball stuff, I don't know names for.



1 beat club/poi windmill piroette.



Some diabolo moves I don't know names for.



A nifty club swinging move I'll go post in the correct thread.

Hip snakes.



Devilstick propellor.

I live in a world of infinite possibilities.

After a year of weaves and simple butterflys - in the last two weeks:

weave to windmill to reverse weave (fountain?)
giant windmill
5-beat weave
Thread the needle
and a few fancy flourishes inside the weave, butterfly and reverse weave.

I know this stuff is like kindergarten for most of you - but I felt like I earned the right to publish my accomplishments. Of course - I can do all this with my sock poi. Once I lit my firechains, I kind of lost most of it. Practice practice practice .... weavesmiley

Thank you. I feel like my practice is paying off - the weather has changed and I'm excited about spinning again. Plus, I found myself a gifted teacher. biggrin

Sorry haven't been here for a couple of days - have to agree with Rob that the wraps combo I discribed previously is actually prettier coming out of the tangles. Getting into the butterfly tangle straight out can be a bitch if your planes are all screwy

Later

PS you coming to BJC mr Nx?

not sure what that move is kit but i can tell you the btb nosebleed weave was backwards cos smit can't do btb forwards himself!! (or maybe he can now but i haven't seen it yet)

we're quite competative us, which is good cos it pushes you forward... i think he's been gettin good at double staff behind my back now though... umm looks like i'm just gonna have to try an step up the poi skills! weavesmiley

anyhoo...
i learnt eatin apples and reachovers this morning and had a pretty good left handed shower at lunch. need to practice juggling more often too! 441 next... biggrin

Is that (as with standard airwraps) keeping them tangled for what you may call 2 beats of the butterfly? I like them they are quite fun and a really good "I meant to do that" move if the butterfly airwrap doesn't come out first time round!

nice one coleman! impressed by 40 with 5...beerchug
when you say 3 up pirouttes is that a 3 ball flash with a turn? or does it have to be under the arm like dave (can't remember his second name) does in his video? (no.3)

got 441 last night, made my box look a bit neater
...and poiwise can do a btbww the otherway (anticlockwise) but haven't converted it into a full one yet! ubbrollsmile

incidentaly do you thing we should start an 'i've just learnt a new juggling move' thread in the other toys section or just carry on as usual? umm
