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



::flash enthusiastically pats your back::

Posted:Nice job on the isolations, I'm still working on those. I did just get the reverse butterfly through my legs, one at a time and both together, and the fowards butterfly through the legs one at a time going through the front and back.

Don't mind me, just passing through.

Aim high and you'll know your limits, aim low and you'll never know how high you could have climbed.

Posted:WHoo! I can do a messy but passable isolated weave, inverted buzzsaw, huggies (which are still messy and I can't do anything with them as yet), some very silly airwrap to wristwrap things that look awesome, butterfly airwraps, and I pulled off a pendulum flower. It's really very silly.

Spin, bounce, be one with the world, because it is yours to enjoy...

Posted:Well, finally made it to Glebe for a Thursday night spin, and managed to pick up a few bits and pieces:



- finally learnt how to spin staff properly.



and Poi:



- 4bt TTN (messy, but at least I understand how it works now)



- some weird weave variation which really stretches the back (start a weave, begin to transition but keep your feet anchored, and just twist around your body as far as you can go. Is it a waistwrap or something, perhaps? I'll let you know)



- messy but doable reverse buzzsaw and reverse buzzsaw weave (I think . . . )



Also made myself a staff.



Have fun,



Jazz

Posted:my BTB weave double bicep wraps are 100% solid now that i learned where to stall my arms!

i just got both BTB anti-spins in the last couple of days. biggrin but i still can't do them in front tho in any sort of repeatable pattern. frown anyone else learn antispin this way, or am i nuts for not practicing it enough in front? haha. ubbloco

Just purely for geeky reasons...



Also been messing around with an isolated one handed butterfly. ( I felt like being silly, and it bore some weird results... Now I just need to learn to control it more...)

I can do 10 beat if you count going behind the head, over the opposite shoulder...



Not really a 'performing move' as such, more of a useful move in a 'display of Geekery' contest...

I should stop being such a poi geek...

Posted:I just got antispin butterfly flowers. A complete accident but they look so nice. I've been working on what I like to call a nose-dive, a downward release although its more of a stall where you drop and catch it under the other arm.

I thought exactly the same thing when I learnt them...

I think they should also be called: 'The move that makes you feel silly when you nail it.' ubblol

not trying to one-up really, but i've recently cleaned up my butterfly buzzsaw double airwrap and exit (the exit being the hard part :lol). and i learned to start a one handed split time butterfly from a dead stop.

wackiness. global consciousness. etc.

Posted:I just took the (short) time to make sure I had reverse 3bt basic inversions on both sides. I learnt forward a while ago, but never bothered with reverse until now...



Also got to grips with butterfly antispin flowers. I could already do forwards same direction antispin, but never bothered to learn it in butterfly... I can feel antispin turns coming on soon, too...
