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:Right I think this is my first time on this thread so here goes....
I started trying to learn more than butterfly and 3 beat weave this week and I managed on thursday & saturday to learn competently:

5 beat weave
Butterfly weave
gyroscope
hip reels
shoulder reels
waist wraps (very scrappy )
Butterfly flowers
normal flowers (and almost anti-spin flowers... that will take until falmouth I recon)
erm.. I think there were 2 others but I can't remember it was a busy few hours....

Thank you for your time biggrin I'll go back to staff now


A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.

Posted:mad2 damn you mynci

he learns things too quickly i showed him 5 beat and in 5 mins he was doing it

anyone who thinks its not true try and teach him something at falmouth and see just how quick he picks it up its very frustrating. mad2

still i recently learnt how to do butterfly and normal flowers both directions recently and am now working on antispin

Posted:okay, for lack of a better word....

zero point airwraps

basically, one of the poi is stationary, ie in the middle of a stall (i've found horizontal stalls the easiest) and the other poi powers through the airwrap

so, zero point, because one poi is not moving, at least initially

Posted:Im practising continual throwing switches,

ok two others I got



1)



Wall plane, left wrap right and catch poi head,

and you get the loop out of hand and play with

axis in the middle.



2)



With horizontal buzzsaw hyperloop you can

free the lower loop for a while and re-

catch it again without Poi twistin.

Posted:sounds interesting richee!

i've been playing around with lots of insides, head catches, throws and getting lost in knots lately which has resulted in:

-being able to 'infinite' air wrap at last.. through an eventual understanding of 'isolated cone theory' (it's only taken two years) rolleyes
-sometimes being able get turning hyperloops
-changing directions of loops with hand stalls
-being able to go from hyperloops/airwarps into barrel rolls and vice versa
-getting into tangles from other kinds of insides (see above)
-getting a glimpse at what might be possible with turning continual butterfly loops...
-nice throw ideas although still mostly sketchy...
-turning from huggies into and out of inside/crosser moves
-lots of fun with btb reel turns

still need a few weeks to consolidate it all but it's getting there! smile

Posted:I came home early from college & managed to learn 4 bt TTN (inwards & outwards), split time TTN (inc tranisitions into & out of both), reverse 5 beat weave (gave up on that a couple months ago, took me about 10 minutes today), and BTB rev weave

these have been on my to learn list for ages, but I only attempted em today, I'm quite miffed cause now I'm gonna have to learn flowers or something & I don't like practicing new stuff.

Posted:Bloody brilliant, I've just cracked first degree inversions! Well... I've got inverted 3 beat, and I think I've got inversions in a 5 beat, but I may be wrong.

They feel so good!

Posted:1)



Well, start BW butterfly, than trow one Poi underneath to horizontal still and recatch it over the wrist. The other Poi does 1 beat front and than repat the same pattern. You should end with forward butterfly.



2)



I've found again, spiral wrap that I after 2 loop transit to other side where is recoiled.



bonus - Pendulum BTL BTB(thanks Dratek)

Posted:Sure I suck at poi.
This week I got them out again after too long.

I finally managed Thread the Needle (FINALLY!), butterfly behind my back, over head butterfly and a very scrapy mexican wave.
Plus I cleaned up my 3 beat weaves in both directions and turning between them.

So it's been a very good weekend, but now I'm covered in soot so off to hit the shower!

Posted:6B TTN crosser



Basic move is split time 6B Thread the needle in the front. The diffrence is that the "side" parts are wheel plane cross-overs, with one hand BTB and one front with hands crossed. Other difference is that its not so static so I move my shoulders and hips, where the legs stay same position.



(Bluecat is doing this on spinnach, it looks fore a while like when both hand are BTB, ie crosser.)



I can send the timing of spinnach if somebody want.

hook it up. i loves some spinach. biggrin

spinning last night --
i finally got the "longarm" crap down where you put one low WW and one high BTH and make flower turns. biggrin i tried it weave and butterfly and liked it better butterfly by far. then i wanted to try tangling them, which i got eventually going along the plane of the shoulders on both sides (bth/btb bfly tangle turns?? HOTT). then i wanted to bicep wrap them, which worked to a degree. then i wanted to tangle/wrap them, which didn't work well at all, so i started learning to tangle/wrap BTB instead. ;D

then i got distracted by girls. stupid Spring!

Posted:I had developed this combination a bit ago, then forgot how to do it, then re-figured it out yesterday smile

Starts with a forward butterfly to a stally catch on the opposite wrists so the chains overlap, then twists off into a horizontal tangle, then untangles into a corkscrew.

Name of the combination: wristburner eek

Don't quote me on that, I don't name moves.. rolleyes

I don't name moves.. rolleyes





but you do name combos it seems - how bizarre wink





redface i learnt some things i should already know how to do redface



- turning with same direction hip/shoulder reels

- improved my timing on same direction hip reels (but it is *far* from fixed)

- played with mixing up hip and shoulder reels but got confused by stretched out circles so instead...

- i ended up learning a lovely clean backwards maxi plus original flavour hyperloop - right to left that is biggrin



i also learnt that my antispin weave (reverse poi) seems to want to work better if i point my hands upwards - the timing of the top crossovers make loads more sense in that arm position smile
