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:I've been messing around with various hyperloop things! I tangle them on my right/left then bring them over to my left/right before they untangle. It's fun! I got 7 beats of buzzsaw in the middle a bit earlier... I wanna see if I can do it ad infinitum!

And a stoopidly-many beat fountain. And lockout fountains. I wanna lockout above my head. And i wanna isolate a lockout.

Posted:Ive only just started using my sock poi and have fallen in love with wraps, this is my newest and by far the funnest. Weave into single handed wrist wrap then over, unwrap into a hyperloop then switch back out into reverse weave.

Posted:Thanks to Oli for showing me a new style of playing at the Infected Mushroom gig in Bristol last weekend! It was breathtaking and inspirational!

I think i've finally got the hang of those inversals (is that right?) he was showing me, however, i am stronger playing backwards than forwards, which suprised me. I also find it hard to uncross on the other side, but i can do it sometimes. I been practising every day tho, so i find it all a lot more fluid now!

anyway, hello to everyone here, im new, feel free to flame or praise or ignore!

Posted:my new move would be a horizontal-hyperloop-pirouette-thing. from a corkscrew i go into a hyperloop, throw it up into the air, i spin 360, then catch the two poi. note: the two poi stay joined the whole time, and only sepparate when i pull them apart, as i catch them.

cheers, pete

Hello! smile

I think you meant inversions... and I learnt them backwards first, they're one of those odd moves where backwards is often easier!

Posted:I learned full weave BTB the one where you turn and the poi are actually in front of your body then turn and they are behind you, very very reachy. If you keep turning they will go back up in front of you. Like the BTB weave video except poi goi FWds and Reverse in front of my body depending on orientation. BTB weave on all four planes depending on body position. I also learned turning waist wrapped reels, Clock wise, the opposite direction wants to 5 bt weave because of how I start the pattern. long arm counter clockwise, w/poi butterfly time, flower, and long arm butterfly time arms with rvs spinning poi flowers. BTB wall plane airwraps. I can do a version of the upside down BTTfly Hyperloop poi come out in same direction. I also did a split time butterfly hyperloop on accident.

dont make peoples heads turn, give them whiplash.

Posted:OKey, took me three days to get around to the most bareboned basics of Isolations. My hand would'nt understand them at all gah.

And now on the last of the three days, I got Isolations winded up in two moves. Weave Isolations, very simple when you know the two types of moves imo. Don't know if it's two or five beats... Here's guessing it's 5. But I wonder with those turns with the hand how many it really is. And amusingly enough I hav'nt gotten corcsqrew yet, however, the amusing this is I think I sucseeded with an Corksqrew isolation today aswell. I sure did a weavy move, and it was isolated and it was turned 90 degrees like a corcsqrew...

Nothing compared to most of you guys, just fun to update my progress somewhere.
