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:yay meeeee!!!!!

i made up a movve!!!(whith tech advice from fwirl(lydia)).

i calll it the arse rap (please tell me if this is not a new move!!)

wel when doing forwards keep the poi swinging in the same direction, thenturn your body slightly to the side, stick your arse out ,rap the poi under your behind, (the poi should hit you on the opposite hip....this may hurt with beamers) unrap, straiten up, and heypresto!!!

this move does look fairly effective

and again please tell me if this move is already in use

Posted:I didn't read all of this topic yet, but I also got a new move yesterday and if it's already in here please forgive me.

I think I don't need to explain a lot, it's just a forward weave but instead of going side to side, spread your legs and when your weave is on the right side just change the angle of the chains a bit and pull it through your legs and you'll come out in a reverse weave on the opposite side. I personally think it looks pretty good, but takes a bit of practise though to get the right feeling for it.

Thanks for listening (reading) and give it a shot!

Posted:i've never posted here before but i need to shout to someone and no one's on IM!

so here goes!

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

i suddenly cracked turning a butterfly weave, or at least it's two beat counterpart (bouncing butterfly) it needs smoothing but it's soooo feckin easy lol (easy in split time. the issues in same time are just my issues with the move itself. liek how i refused to learn same time butterflies good for like...well...months relly.)

and i just did a six beat corckscrew! woot! god it wasn't even that hard. i'm sure it looks crap but still, it's doable! eeeeeeeeeee!

god i've barely touched my poi lately cause of staff and three section, but i need to go back and work with them more! wheeee!

Posted:Here's one i thought of and have been practicing a bit over the past week..
I dunno if i invented it, but i have never seen anyone else do it.
it's pretty easy, and just a little fun.

basically you do the fwd 3beat weave, and on the last beat on each side, lift your leg up (to the front) and kinda stuff your hand under it so the poi goes on the outside of your leg. then bring it back in quick-like.
I hope that made sense..
If not, i'll try to do a better explanation

Hi fellow people

Im new to poi and by the reading your all true experts, how on earth will I catch up!!

Any advise? visited geocities.com/firepoi some good guides!! so thanks for that site!! The only problem is I printed them off took them home and they didn't make much sense so any suggestions on how to get better let me know.. I have managed to do the basic moves and also chase / weave.
or I guess they are just basic compaired to some of your emails. Im realy good at the fire wheel though.

Posted:curious and curiouser!

i just got the behind the back mexican wave....

weird, i know, havent tried it with fire yet, but thinking it will be efective if start of with normal mexican, then leave hands behind back and swing them out in front one at a time. yes, will have to try this with fire soon..

why do yall love btb weave? even the best at it look unco after a couple of rotations, i just dont think its worth it.... says me who can only do it for a little bit, then whamo..

Posted:This afternoon cass showed me how to do a BTB weave...then the waist-wrap. When I got comfortable with the waist-wrap I stopped working on the BTB weave!

This evening I did it with fire, which was awesome!

Today is 4 weeks to the day since I started poi.

I'm hooked!

Posted:Pinched this off a friend of mine, it's pretty simple and probably not that new but looks dead good. Neat way of turning out of weaves by splitting them. Do forward weave but instead of sending the right poi over to the left side let it go behind the back, then turn around 180 into a backwards weave. Looks like f weave, low wave and turn, b weave.

sorry about sketchy description, tricks are so hard to describe.

Posted:Finally nailed the reverse five-beat weave yesterday after not being able to get my head round it for ages, so I'm pretty pleased about that. Also worked on doing forward-to-back turns using five beat, but it seems that to do it you have to turn the second cycle (the middle one when turning in three-beat) straight into the reverse five-beat rather than turning again to enter it as with three-beat. Or maybe I just need to play around some more

Reverse btb three-beat is almost there, just need to remember to keep my arms a little further away from my body than they'd like to be

Posted:sorry sam. you didn't make up a new wrap. My friend Brian came up with it about 3 mths. ago. Except we call it the ass stall, and when in reverse, it beocmes the nut stall which really hurts when not done properly for obvious reasons

You. Its whats for dinner!

Posted:Woo, I feel alive. New moves are flowing. Behind the back 3 beat weave (is the direction the same as in front or reversed? ie does a reverse 3 beat weave BTB spin in the same direction as reverse in front?), although a bit wobbly and lasts for probably 6 turns before going out of control or hitting the back of my legs.

Sorry need a break. Didn't just learn it but haven't had the opportunity to be here for a while. Picked up a butterfly turn, a butterfly fountain and the three beat btb weave... very excited. Just wish I wasn't sick... that would make me even happier than I already am.

Posted:I thought of something that I think works pretty well. It involves getting a BTN going in front of you, then as it goes around, wrap it up on a single finger every few revolutions. You end up with a pretty cool effect.

I also found out that to undo it, you can unwrap a forwards gripped wrap with a forwards weave.

Posted:This weekend I got the one handed butterfly fairly consistently, and I also got the behind the back crossover from a reverse rotation fairly consistent. ( I'll be working on the behind the back weave next)

This is my first post to HOP I've been spinning since January, and this site has been great inspiration. I am also teaching myself the staff from the staff lessons, and I later want to learn the meteor.

Thanks for all of the inspiration
