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::

Richee, isn't that just 2 Poi in 1 hand, not spinning?

ubblol Edited for wrongness: OH gilligan is 1 Poi still, other Poi spinning, both in 1 hand. Cheers Richee for clarification!



Got 4 beat and 6 beat buzzsaw hyperloops right to left, under-arm airwraps (cheers to Durbs for showing me those), and managed to turn antispin flowers (reverse to forward turning left, can't turn back or turn right yet). Sketchy, but doable. And that weird wallplane antispin flower with an isolated crossover to get back to the first position that Yakumo does in his recent video.



Damn those butterfly waistwraps though, I just can't seem to make them work. rolleyes

Hmm.. stumbled upon a fun move yesterday while playing with crossers and tangles.. put them together smile.

Start with wall plane tangle (airwrap),
turn and bring to buzzsaw plane (infinite tangle),
then bring your arms into a wheel plane crosser to untangle the poi

then uncross the arms and tangle the Poi again and untangle back in the wall plane (release airwrap).

or turn your body so that your wheel crosser turns into a reel crosser (traditional crosser)

You can also turn all the way around so that you are doing a reverse wheel plane crosser, then uncross to a reverse infinite tangle..

blah blah etc...

fun stuffs.. dunno if that made any sense tho.

Peace,

I just found the perfect way to fold the handles* of my Poi, so they fit perfectly around my fingers. I can finally spin with my palms wide open biggrin I'm sooo happy! (I've been looking a way to do this for a long time)

*they are double finger loop handles

Aww, everybody does all these cool stuffs. I've decided to only play with crossers for a while.

I've noticed how i completely ignored to learn teh Antispin crosser. So that's on it's way

Btw White RaveN, I think I worked some on the thing your explaining here, it would be sweet to see somebody do it really smooth. My movements feel very rough when I try it, course alot of practice will do.

Anyhow, my next ventures concerning Crossers ( hugs ) will be if you can do them horisontally. Should be possible somehow. haha.

Oh, and I'm also quite dedicated right now to exploring the horisontal plane. There are things to be discovered there I think =)

:P I didn't go this week, I was there last week though. I'll make it easy for people. I've got a dog collar, big baggy jeans and I'll be bouncing around. probably picking fights with hippies with staffs. Then running away and trying to learn something contacty.

Here, let me describe myself: 6', short dark hair, beard, dog collar, thin, bouncy and I'll be doing just about anything I can get my hands on. Not necessarily well, but still... See you on Monday!

I generally use Sock Poi and chains with fire (currently ball chain), Sock Poi are by far the easiest to do tangles with. You can probably get away with doing isolations with nylon cord, but I hate string cords with a passion so I couldn't say how easy it would be. I replace any strings with ball chains right off. My tail Poi (zuni style) uses ball chains and it works great. Isolations are beautiful with tail Poi.

*Polyrythmic 2:1 Crosser ( only one side )

*Transition to one hand front, one hand BTB crosser

*Cross-stall both in front

*Cross-stall one btb one in front

*Cleaned up my Horisontal Buzzaw thingy



Btw, when you do a Buzzaw and you stand in the Wallplane and turn it from one side to the other (Going in a circle with your arms ). What do people refferr to this as? I heard people caling them Buzzaw-flowers ?
