Posted: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

Posted:balls.

tried learning that 423 with shoulder throws with clubs but its quite a different throw compared to shoulder throws with balls.

backcrosses are like that too.

whats a tortoisey thing (other than a turtle)?

Posted:Think this may be something old hat for most people, but here goes...

Was playing around with some leg wraps for the first time when I did this: simple forward swing, but open legs and let poi go between them, til they are behind you and you're doubled over like a cowboy with trapped wind. ubblol


The second they stop, whip them back out into reverse swing. So it has the effect of a wrap, but theres no body contact at all. The effect is, the poi are pulling your arms through your legs, stopping mid air with string horizontal, then get whipped back out.

Is this revolutionary or am just I kidding myself? hmm...

umm

Posted:This weekend I perfectly mastered how to lose both my sets of sock poi, one pair were my prized practice poi and one newly made pair, fresh as a daisy, lush custom glow socks without even touching them. Magic! I'm having a little difficulty nailing the move again tho since they have not returned and I was 120 miles from home frown I hope I manage to learn the finding poi move sometime soon

Funny you should mention that, me and Rossco can now do the fwd 5bt weave together, we've hit a couple of two-man hyperloops and are currently trying to turn into the rv 5bt. If only we had more time to practice together! Damn those 120 miles between us! rolleyes

Posted:ditto for me and bloo custom except its more like 300 miles and for some reason it tends to only happen when we're too inebriated to do poi solo umm ubblol

your move repertoire is pretty much identical to ours - hyperloops and airwraps work fine but anything buzzsawed is a huge no-no.

i'm thinking of a renegade act for slovenia involving a *huge* pair of trousers and a massive jumper...
