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:Ive got a new move that looks rlealy good in fire but not sure what its called or even if it has a name.
Im trying to get it with two poi but only managed to get it with one. not sure how with two.
Spin one poi in a single handed weave then with the other hand cut off the cord about half way and use your hand as the centre of spin. The weave is then continued but half the size. Again looks realy good in fire.
anyone know what its kewl. also can some people try it out and give verdicts on how to do it with two?

Posted:I found out, much to my surprise, that I couldn't actually do backwards antispin flowers. So I learnt them, and all thus all the butterfly variations that involved my stupid right hand spinning backwards. Yay for that!

I've spent most of my time learning everything again with aerotechs this week - they're right weird they are. Sadly I'm going to have to put them away to charge in preparation for play now...

Hmmm... Maybe whilst doing some same direction reels, you could shorten one poi, Or would it be possible to do something with a long arm weave?

Posted:Play taught me:

Opposite direction poi, opposite direction arms flowers
Some kind of anti-spin buzzsaw thing
Whip catches (Fanks Beth smile)
Oli loops
Reverse hyperloops

Hooray for silly technical things. I got to spin to some very nice drumming on the Saturday night, too, so thankyou to those people who were at it - it may have been my drunken state but you sounded ace to me smile

Posted:Keep it up JerryD, the 5bt is a big step in tech spinning! The reverse 5bt is nasty compared to the forward. Your wrists don't want to twist that way naturally. I find the reverse 5bt easier when my wrists wrap at about eye level.

Once you get the 5bt smooth, try doing the same wrist motion in a windmill.
