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::

Yey for Brizzol JC...now I am armed with new poi-ness with the following bullets.......



Butterfly buzzsaw and extnded into fountain. Also isolated but not in fountain. (thanks me ubblove)



One-handed butterfly hyperloops, then extended into over the head passes and UTL passes. (thanks me and rossco bossco)



Full matrix and now my tummy muscles hurt lots and lots but that won't put me off (thanks Rob)



Contact pass over the shoulder into wrist propellor (me again)



BTB throw into one handed butterfly catch. (more me)



[edited for stonerforgetfulitus] Totally forgot the pick up whip catch/toss (in one action) from the floor which works surprisingly well and is surprisingly easy, and double weave arm wraps from Gary the tea man too weavesmiley Yey for new tricks bounce





Yey me, yey Rob, yey Ross, yey for everyone at Brizzol this weekend including Gary the free tea man! There was tons of other moves I learnt but now my memory has faded somewhat but I've now learnt that learning new stuff at 6am after partying for 15 hours may be a good way to nail something but it isn't a good way to remember the tricks post waking up time 5 hours later.

Thanks to all the wonderful people at the BJC this weekend i now have -

The poi matrix - tummy muscles are very painful but worth it! Thankyou Rob! hug

A few new butterfly hyperloops - thanks to me and bug and rossco.

Flowers - they're so pretty!

Some other, more basic stuff that looks good.

And now i'm gonna learn butterfly waistwraps, mainly because of people bugging me about not being able to do them yet biggrin

well, i got some odd wristwrapping weave action happening, and the fountain like thing is a lot smoother now. and a really cool reverse parallel spin-catch-butterfly wrap/grab move, that even works with fire. trying to work on going from fwd something, but the legwrap throws the poi at too much of an angle, and they hit me in the butt.



oh, and i can sometimes get hyperloops working for more than once in a row

backwards 7 under the arm method, and finally, fountain with a 360 degree spin when the poi get behind you. and forward 7bt over the arm to ugly weave in one easy duck and swivel. and some btb butterfly weavey waistwrapy type things depending on how you look at them and whether i get them right.
And someone at a party complementing my spinning when i was dancing about not doing anything complicated and just trying not to hit people. which was best of all...

im playing around with a legwrappy hyperloopy airwrappy thingy. i can get into it no probs, but leaving is another matter, i still need to work out where my hands need to go to get the head to not attack my wrist. umm, sooo close to a 7 bt its not funny, and i figured out a way to do a 5 beat without crossing wrists smile

btl weaves from btb... (btb watermills?)



under the leg weaves from a given side (+ some) basically just a wallplane weave, taken from the rear plane, under the leg to the front (both poi) and then that sides poi back over said leg to the back..



splitthreading motions about other axi, like the corkscrew for instance..



a lot better at the threading motions needed for crossed inverted bf weaves (though not really much better at the crossed inverted bf weaves lol..)



maintaining a tangle (or orbital for all intents and purposes) between the wrists like such:

Code:


R--(arm)--

\ l

\|

*

|\

r \

---(arm)---L




so as to roll the arms around it using isolated inverted weave motions or one step further and holding the arm still while rolling the tangle around it.. (not really that impressive but the variations create lots of ways to further move tangles and what not)



wallplane utl alternating butterfly thing.. forward bf, take right over the left and btl to the rear plane.. now bring the right around the left leg to the front plane, while the left poi goes btl to the rear plane, then bring the left around the right leg to the front plane, while the right comes back to the rear plane.. bring the right btl to the front as the left comes back to the rear, bring the left up.. lather, rinse, enjoy tingly sensation..



other stuff heere and there.. nothing I think worth noting.. (or at least springing to mind.. )

got some additions:



old and busted: doing alternating butterfly patterns with one poi btl from the front and one from the back

new hotness: expanding those to from btl further to back around the leg



fountains with one leg btl from the back.. (the over the shoulder version not the pointy version I normally do... oh and not really clean yet)



more variations on double crossers ?!? stuff like utl from each side and back over said leg.. and turn and what not..



basic tangle stuff I've over looked.. like doing a wall plane weave (reverse right side) and starting a tanlge in the back and then rolling it behind the head to the other side.. makes your shoulders like the horizon as the it rises from one shoulder arcs up to the head and then arcs back down to set on the other shoulder.. and doing antics with other rear plane initiated tangles.. (some of them have to be rolled around the arm first.. see my post above...



and my favorite.. pin catches.. I was never really good at toss/release and catch but for some reason, my elbows catch just fine.. now to work on my knees..

no bit is too small.. there's soo much stuff I do that is just slightyl differnt.. hand turned a different way.. or arm in the wrong place.. every little bit matters.. because in the end its all the same.. and its only the little bits that make it different..

richee, you can keep that wrapping stally thing going for as long (fd-bd-fd-bd) as you want - my longest was three or four direction changes, i think, but it gets boring after a while.

to turn the flower properly is well hard, and besides i aint worked on anything new in poi for 5 months.... (not that i havent been practicing, but i been smoothing off everything instead of learning new stuff.)

got turning same plane anti-spin as well if your not imressed enough... although thats easier.

and if you still arnt impressed i got sync armrolls one starting palm, the other starting on the back. see, i had better things to do, hehehe.

teehee - as soon as juggling is banned from this thread, the advantages of having a multi-toy thread are realised...

this video is a video of normal mills mess followed by mills mess with all penguin catches.

and with that, the juggler was gone...
