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::

Jump on the tutorial section of this site https://www.homeofpoi.com/lessons_all/teach/Library-POI-3_0_0
, chief, use www.poipoi.info/tuition as a supplement, but I honestly don't fancy much else, but their tutorials are nicely made, if a little mislabeled (In terms of beginner, intermediate advanced) . When you've powered through that, go on https://www.playpoi.com/poi-lessons
for his tutorials. Nathaniel Everest had a massive burst of activity a while back and created a heap of decent beginner/intermediate tutorials, you should be able to find those on youtube reasonably easily. https://www.youtube.com/user/NathanielEverist

Or if you're up to this stage just watch lots of videos... anything you like, try to replicate it... remember NOTHING is too hard to learn, you just need the practice... the only vague exception is that some movements are built on from other movements and so you'll need the earlier ones.

Good luck, pilch.

Yay, I've just learnt a reverse 3bt weave! I think looking at my shadow has helped a bit ... fortunately weather turned sunny and I didn't have to practice inside my room crashing furniture.
Suma sumarum it's a constant pain in my right thigh and a bruise on my head. But hell, I've nailed the bugger! Mwahaha, can't wait to move on (:

Hmm. Lets see, finally got TTN, and I'm working on the buzzsaw isolation. It looks pretty I think.

I've been trying to throw an isolation into my weave now and again for a kick... lol....

I was contemplating a 1 poi move, but I don't think it'd be too productive while performing, aside from the "photo-op".
I haven't seen it before, and when your doing it it really doesn't look too pretty, At least, watching me try to do it doesn't look pretty.

A figure 8 or an infinity sign using stalls and a little bit of an isolation. Making an "X" patter with a little momentum to carry across the middle of the X shape and then stall and get momentum going the other way...

*shrug* Could be nothing, but I'm trying it regardless.

Sounds like it could be interesting.

Not sure that I entirely understand though....

Take a look at your HoP Icon.
Starting on the right you spin up and stall the poi to the top left side of the symbol, then spin the other direction and stall through to the top of the other side, rinse, and repeat. *shrug*

Like I said, I'm not sure if it's plausible, but I'm going to play with it for a bit, see if I can get it prettier.
Feel free to do the same, heh.

*click* Got it, I think. At any rate, I get a cross out of the pattern I am thinking of.

Will play with that as well then. smile

A few days ago I pulled my poi out from a small period of not spinning, only to pull off a couple flowers right from the start! I was so giddy, I've been randomly pulling out my poi and spinning flowers for days.

Congrats, if you're moving on to the three beat I suggest you get the two beat down on both sides, it will make the three beat much easier; unless you know the two beat then never mind o.O

No, I don't know the two beat, but I have taken a look/tried it, it seems to just be a matter of timing. My left side is a bit slow, so I have to compensate and concentrate on it, but it's coming along smile

I learned the 3beat weave and alsost did a 5 beat weave. Also thought of a cool combination for a dance.

I am somewhat new to Poi but I love it!

i've started dancing around with my poi a bit more, and I've stumbled on a move and I have no idea what it's called, so I need your help guys.

It's a figure 8 formation, I typically start with both poi on my left side, swing up to my right, down then back to the left. On about the second to third rotation I separate the poi and they do this individually (the 8s). I love the move, just want to know the name lol

No name for it really, its just figure 8s with the poi in even time which you then seperate out into a 2 beat weave(a split time movement)...

That is if I'm understanding you correctly, of course. smile
