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:bahaha. i was playing the other day and found the funniest looking move i've ever done. i'd call it an "under the leg airwrap double table top". right hand (for example) goes UTL from the front, left goes UTL from behind, they airwrap and go to "double bicep wrap" around the same-side thigh, but as they're unwrapping, you close your thighs together so they both bounce again off the opposite-side thigh. then you can keep going back and forth - which i'd call a tabletop if it were on my biceps instead of my thighs - bouncing off each thigh, before pulling it back out of the airwrap/wrap either regular or inverse depending on which way they heads bounced last and whether you want to follow the front or btb head out. ubblove that airwrap combo.

I've been working on this goofy 180 buzzsaw hyperloop to turning windmill to turning crosser isolation thingy. It's all basically a weave but the direction keeps changing as you turn.

i'm vid deficient, but i know you'd like it. it's the airwrap+double bicep wrap thingy that i came up with in your presence, only with legs instead of arms and a front/rear entry instead of from the same side (pretty sure that wouldn't work well anyways). i already had all the arm/leg variations and even the arm/neck ones down, so i thought, "why not do it all UTL." wink i guess BTB is next? oh snap.

Posted:yeah yeah, no biggy to the rest of you, but in my search for flowers expertise and tips, I came across the butterfly weave... I kept on being unable to get out of a 4-beat rhythm, until I clicked that as long as I got the TTN part right, and then moved out of the TTN with my left hand first, I would get the 3-beat right.

... as with most poi moves, it just friggin happened!

www.domorepoi.com also helped quite a bit....

that's what i was doing when i met rob for the first time - he came over and said "i've been playing with that too".

in some ways, that first conversation has never actually ended... wink


i learnt more bits of antispin - i can now do the weave crossover from right to left (poi spinning backwards) - which means i'm nearly at the point where i can spin in antispin for a while with turns and all that like what that monkey and rev can do smile
