Posted:Heya all,I picked up Poi for the first time in march, so since then I've learnt up to 22 on the poi lessons with a couple of little moves added in. I can almost switch between all of those moves, almost

I got down the full circle weave (forwards, turn, backwards, turn, etc...), as well as a move I enjoy doing which involves 1/2 backwards, a circle and 1/2 forwards. At the moment I'm kinda stuck for moves..Behind the back anything and I kinda windup with bruises and nothing closer. I was brave and learnt butterfly (I'm a guy, and all guys will know what I'm talking about

), and so now I can do all the genre of butterfly moves.....But I'm stuck for ideas. I'm kinda plateauing at the moment and I don't like it... so guys and girls.....help

Posted:Dude check here.. most of the wraps listed so far deal with the Butterflyhttp://www.homeofpoi.com/ubb/Forum3/HTML/000364.htmlOh and when your trying to learn the 5 beat, it seems to be easier if you alternate between trying to get the quad corkscrew and 5 beat weave. Also it helps if you really exagerate the twisting of the Wrists/arms until you get used to it.

Posted:Yeah,Wraps are when the cable/chain/cord briefly wraps around a part of your body near the tip of the poi, and then immediately unwraps spinning the poi in the opposite direction. I believe there is even a thread in this discussion group of a listing of wraps. Check it out. :PI know of the 1/2 left - circle - 1/2 right move..try instead of just doing a circle in the middle, do a quad-windmill(or just windmill) back to a circle in front, then the 1/2 right. ------------------ [PLUR]-=Crazy Raver Dude=-
