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.

if your not imressed enough



its not that.. I just thought turning and antispin flower was a prerequisite for liuke mastering flowers and perhaps a bit of a requisite for some antispin stuff? I mean obviously not I learned my AS flowers from my AS weave.. but stil I thought they kidna went hand and hand is all..

i got sync armrolls one starting palm, the other starting on the back.




nice.. I'm still triyng to mix a few things.. like I can roll a tangle around an arm... I can wrap a poi around an arm using a tangle.. and I can wrap my poi on an arm and have them exit as a tangle... but I havent gotten the wrap->tangle that rolls around the arm as it exits.. confused its one of those I got the shortcuts of multiplying.. but they don't work with division... scenarios..

Posted:i belive i saw that guy in the penguin video at bjc doing exactly that now i watch it. dosnt look as penguin like with poi. or not how i do it anyway.

and ive finally learnt that 2 bt inverted weave with ya arms crossed thingy that nx was showing me at bjc and has been confusing me since then. very odd little creature it is too...

also finally working out how to deal with the weird exits of what i believe are known as wobbles.

and some other stuff with tangles i havnt got time to explain now.

Posted:uh hum....



tripples flash. claw mills (lots), cherry picker both ways with the middle ball always clawed. the inception of a new contact move, more details when its more solid(in about 5 months time, sigh). wrist stalls, a lovely scicor to scisor (howeverthefuckyouspellit) throw.... oh and a two ball run sequence.... oh and straight armed cross-body turning wallplane..... chestrolls! ubbloco



oh poi! rightrightright..... howabout... Eternal Legwraps!!!!! hehehe thease little babies are a through wrap that never comes un wrapped, more to come kitlings (yes been reading vurt, no im not the cat.) Oh and had a go at that hybrid spinning from the other thread, believe me its harder than it sounds, not as bigger wrentch as learning anti spin but i can see a couple of months going past before its comfortable....

Posted:I just joined a juggling club!!!

Today I learned a three ball shower.

Consistantly that is.

I know this must seem stupidly simple but there is a certain pleasure to be had in learning to do something smoothly.

Feels just as good as my first Three Beat Weave or my first BTB Pass with my stick.

I promise to start writing incomprehensible things as soon as i being to learn siteswap :lol;

Posted:i can take one ball from outside elbow to back of hand whilst taking the other ball from back of hand to outside elbow.... hehehe

oli, thats pretty much the picture, tho its not a full nother wrap, wrap transitions (infact all transitions) happen every 180 degrees, so the wrap goes 360 before going through.

oh and a 2 ball train, and another 2 ball trick. and i won a 4 ball endurance the other day, my prize, 3 balls?!?

i dont play poi, sorry.

Posted:Greetings everyone and hope you are all living in peace wherever you may be.

I am experimenting with poi and dancing, due to my middle eastern background I am grateful to have 4 aunts who were/are traditional belly dancers and have good genes that make this sort of expressive dance easy for me to grasp..so when I do poi around, I tend to utitlize belly dancing techniques and I've also used that style with my whips and I just find it's really an awesome thing to be able to do and I thank you all who don't even know who the hell I am, yet have caused such an impact (positive) in how I am now able to express myself, when before I was always very .. rigid.

My question for anyone..is it called a reverse TNT move when you do the TNT move but with the poi moving outwards and your hands coming in towards your body instead of the usual way of them moving outwardly ./ and ..sorry have another question..is it possible to do the windmill over your head as in a helicopter fashion? Please say yesssssssssss cause OMG that's a very hmmm...sensual move ..thanx a bunch people..be well.

Posted:not really a newmove.. but one step closer to perfecting my 5bt anti-spin.. for anyone that saw the f'n weird clip, it looks as though I do a offset, because the same side poi spins a beat towards the middle for the opposite side hand leads across.. well I've been practicing keeping the same side poi same side(outside), whilst bringing the other around, whiuch by the way is a dandy way to help get better at bringing those beats around in the proper numbers rather 2up, like tends to happen.. *shrug*

oh yeah and that antispin business works much better wall planed then side.. am I theonly one noticing this? or am I behind the times as usual..

behind the times mr rev?





$1 short and a day late it seems...



nah I'm just having epiphanies here about things that would seem stupidly obvious.. like AS easier wallplaned.. and perfecting the 5bt.. (which I should have done way back when I first noticed how) I mean.. I did the 5bt the wrong way.. and thought well I need to stretch more.. or something.. then by working out a simple pattern for plane control, unlocked the secret to doing a 4 bt antispin cork, which then clued me in to what I was doing wrong with the 5bt, and thus got me antispinning again..



for the record, that neat plane control pattern.. hold your arms straight out in fron of you.. spin the left poi forward on the left side .. and the right reverse on the right side.. now as the right is in its up swing (and the left is in the down swing) have them cross to opposite sides, right over left.. now.. as the right is in its down swing, swing it under the left back to the right side (and the left will go back over to the left)... spin another half circle and unwind it back to the start.. and twist back up the other way.. and then once you got the hang of that do it in the corkscrew... because nothing works plane control like gravity wink..

Posted:I learned a cool wrapcombo, very easy but it's looking a bit kung-fu I think!

I do TTN, wrap first right poi around left wrist and then wrap left poi around around your right wrist. Now you are doing TTN backwards and can do same combo again to go forward.

Sweet!

something very silly involving a tangle, a wrap, a let go, a swing, a let go, (no hands), a catch and a pull.
