Posted:56 wraps!I have attempted to compile everyone's wrap postings into a comprehensive document. this is by far the largest listing I have seen. If anyone has any to add, please post! (:Butterfly wraps:1) Double Leg Wrap - on the downswing of the BF stick a leg straight out and wrap both poi, then pull up on poi to unwrap. now into the rev bf.2) Wrist/Leg Wrap - on the downswing of the bf, wrap right poi on left wrist, and left poi on right leg, into the rev bf.3) Wrist->Wrist/Leg Wrap - on the downswing wrap the right poi on the left wrist, when it recoils, wrap that poi on the right leg and at the same time wrap the left poi on the right arm, that will put you into a weave by turning 90degrees to the left.4) Double Bicept Wrap - On the upswing of the poi, without moving your upper arm, bring both forearms back to wrap both poi on the biceps at the same time, then that will put you into a rev bf.(pretend you are fishing, and you are pulling back and forth on the fishing pole making th lure kind of surface and dive and that is the movement.)5) Hip Wrap - stand with your feet in a straight line(like you are walking a tightrop, with feet about a foot apart) now on the up swing you are going to do the motion of throwing the right poi to the opposite side(you will end up looking like you are just spinning 2 circles on opposite sides of the body going opposite directions) but instead of letting it go to the other side you will wrap the right poi on the right leg from the outside of the hip and the left poi on the left leg from the inside of the hip. then bring the left poi to the right side and you are again doing the normal BF.6) Double Circular Tricept Wraps - Start by doing a betterfly in front of you, wrap right poi on left tricept. Meanwhile left poi does circle in front while right poi unwraps. Immediately wrap left poi on right arm sticks out and does a circle in front while the left unwraps. Continue to repeat. It looks like two circles with spirals inside of them.7) Alternating Double Circular Tricept Wrap alternate (one wrap at a time) between a forward and reverse butterfly but without any extra rotations in between in the horizontal plane.8) BTB Shin Wrap - BTB buttterfly (coming in from the bottom direction) wrap the shin by sticking your lower leg out behind you, but keep your upper leg straight (bend your knee) on the downstroke. 9) BTB right arm/leg Wrap - on the upswing move your right arm to your right, like you are going to do a revolution behind the back, and when it comes to the top of its arc, wrap it on the right bicep, and at the same time bring the left poi to the right side as well and wrap on the downswing on the right ankle(kind of bring your leg up like you are trying to kick yourself in the butt, except not quite that high) that will take you into the rev butterfly. from the rev BF you can do the same thing on the left side to go back into the reg BF10) Combo - right poi left arm wrap, right poi BTB left arm wrap, right poileft leg wrap, right poi right leg wrap and left poi right arm wrap, to both poi double right arm wrap to both poi both leg wraps to the weave.One-handed butterfly wraps (assuming that you are right handed)1)on the up swing you stick your left arm straight out and wrap the poi around your arm, you can do this forever if you get it right, make sure that your right fist is pointing at the cieling when they wrap, this will give them room to move freely without touching. actually this works for every wrap, as long as you wrist is pointed at the point of the wrap.2)on the down swing wrap them both on the leg3)in between the up and down swing if you change your wrist movement from up and down to side to side real quick you can do a split time leg wrap on the left leg is easier.4) stick your left arm straight out behind you, and on the downswing of the poi bring them over your head to wrap on the left arm.5)on the up swing wrap the poi on the neck.6)at the height of the arc, bring your arm back like you are trying to touch your cheek and let them wrap on the downswing on the very same arm that you are holding them in.7)same as #1 except that you bring your arm in like you are going to punch yourself in the kidney and wrap it from underneath. 8)on the downswing stick it between the legs so the poi comes up at your back and stick out your left arm and wrap the poi on the upswing on that arm, and then when they get to the bottom of the arc bring them back in front of you.9)left arm wrap, right leg wrap, neck wrap, same arm (right)wrap on top, behind the head left arm wrap, same arm wrap from underneath, split time left leg wrapWindmill wraps:1)instead of bringing your right hand over your head again, wrap it on the left arm and that puts you into the rev BF.2)instead of throwing the right hand behind the head, bring both poi to swing at the same time and wrap on the right leg inside of the thigh, that will put you into rev windmill or you can turn either direction to do a weave.3)bring both poi to a same time swing again and wrap the right poi on the right arm and the left poi on the right leg.4)again bring the poi to a same time swing in front and wrap them both on the neck(wrapping from the right side of the head to the left.) Corkscrew wraps:1)when they get down by the leg either wrap them on one leg or one on each leg.2)when the right poi comes up, wrap that one around the neck and the left one either around the leg or do not wrap at all to go to a BF3)bring one down and wrap the lower leg (raise one leg as if to do your laces up on a chair or something) to switch to a mexi-wave. do the same thing from a mexi wave with the other poi and you got a cork screw reversal Weaves1)when your right poi gets to the right side it will wrap on the top of the left arm, do it twice once from above the arm and once from below and you will go back to the weave.2)when the right poi gets to the right side swing the left and right poi in sync and wrap both under the right arm at the same time.3)when right hand comes over to the right side, wrap under the left arm and the left poi will go to the left side and wrap under the left arm.4)doing the crossover, leave your arms crossed and keep spinning them on your sides, bring your right poi over to wrap on your left wrist and after that, just stick your right arm into the circle of the left arm and it will do a bicept wrap.5)when the right poi comes to the right side, wrap that one around your neck and bring the left poi to the left side at the same time and wrap that one around your left leg at the same time. that takes you into the rev weave. 6)7-beat weave wrap. Just keep trying to do the 7-beat and you'll wrap it around your hand the first couple attempts see if you can bring your arm up further when it does that to wrap around your bicept as you turn out of it.BTB weave wraps (assuming that you always go into it from the rev)1)when the right hand does its second revolution and the left hand comes over to the left side, you can wrap the right poi on the left arm from underneath by the armpit. do it twice and you go into the BTB weave again.2)same as #1, except when you do the first wrap on the left arm, your left poi will wrap at the same time on the left leg, into the other weave.(the one that starts from the regular forward weave.)TTN wraps1) Bicept Wrap -wrap on bicept during the inside beat. 2) Single chain wraps - Hold one chain in a normal circle in front of you and bounce the other one around. (forearm outside ankle inside thigh. whatever you can think of. Make sure you learn how to hold the circle with both arms. )3) TTN wrap on your wrists - You gotta move your arms up and kinda catch the chains around them. Each chain only does one circle before wrapping again. Be careful with this one. When I first did it with fire I tranced out watching it and kept doing it way to many times. Ended up getting my first 3rd degree burn. It also converts well into waist and ankle wraps while in the horse stance. This move is prolly the most creative everytime I do it, it always has a different pattern. Wrap Turns1)While spinning forwards, wrap both poi on your upper arms, and as soon as they start to come up behind your back, rapidly twist at the waist, and let em unwind on the opposite side (and in the same direction). The poi head should never come into contact with your skin. The poi rotational velocity will *rapidly* increase, as they wrap, so you gotta go quick, or use LONG chains.Kick wrapsA. Front Kicks1)kick out and wrap(recoil) while doing a wind mill to reverse direction of wind mill2)kick out and wrap both on one leg (recoil) alternating legs randomlyB. Side Kicks3)from weave kick out with right leg and wrap both poi on this leg, one at knee and one on thigh.4)regular forward swing, kick out and wrap (recoil) both poi on one legC.Other Kick Wraps5)ever seen jumping jacks? spread your legs out fast while doing forward swing, wap right poi on right leg and left poi on leg leg at same time, then wrap from reverse spin, etc. (recoil)6)from a reverse butterfly raise lower leg behind you and wrap behind you on calf muscle to go into a forward butterfly. Arm wraps1) froward swing, wrap (recoil) off of opposite arm with poi immediately followed by a wrap (recoil) on the same arm with the other poi, then do same on opposite side of body. This is really cool looking from the side.2) during any butter fly or weave, wrap (recoil) on just one arm(or leg) at a time to move in between various butterflies and weavesduring weave (or whatever) wrap both on one arm, you can turn you body 180 during this to so as to keep doing the same weave.3) overhead (horizontal plane) butterfly- start doing a thread-the-needle. wrap (recoil) one of the poi on your arm and spin body 180 and wrap the same poi again an same arm to go back into the same butterfly, except your body will be facing 180 from start.4) arm wraps (recoils) from a forward swing wrap poi on upper arm (both on one arm or both on different arms) or just one at a time.5)when doing simple fwd side circles, cross your right poi on the downswing, and wrap the left bicep, turn left 90 degs into butterfly. 6)when doing simple side circles, as the right poi passes your leg cross BTB to wrap the left bicep. I guess you could pretty easily go into a BTB butterfly from there...hmm have to try that Various1)while doing alternating sider circles, go BTL with one of em and then up and wrap a bicep, on the reversal just take it out the way it went in, or move your leg around to get jiggy wid it 2)of course, dont forget the horse stance (traditional martial arts - wide stance, with bent knees square shoulders and hips) wraps, fwd rvs, and alternating is the best I think. you can either wrap the poi on the same side as the hand they are hanging from, or you can wrap the both on the same leg...the latter is harder, but I think more effective. You can also do it fwd lunge, wrap both, swap legs wrap both (from butterfly).3)Double inside thigh wraps - Throw em under your leg and do some manuvering to have them stay back there and wrap on the opposite leg before pulling them back out.Glowstick Meteor Slides/WrapsThese all keep the poi spinning the same direction, and if done fluidly the audience will not even be able to tell what you are doing...heh heh heh all they know is you poi keep changing color! They take lots of practice to perfect.1. from regular forward spin -upper leg wrap (upper leg) [you can do both at once, or even do it when you jump up high and bring your knees up and out] 2. From regular reverse spin -opposite arm wrap (upper arm) 3. from forward butterfly -wrap on fore arm. 4. Neck wrap from a overhead butterfly- (watch out for your eyes!) ------------------ [PLUR]-=Crazy Raver Dude=-

Posted:Ok, my head started spinning about halfway through this thread, but here is my submition, hope it hasn't been covered.

Do a double handcuff wrap, from a weave....

do the same on a leg (side kick), so the poi heads hit at different times, as you pull the handles towads you and push your leg out. it makes a nice spiral and unwinds perfectly.

do a forward btb weave, stay on the left till the right poi wraps, then bring the right poi around your body to do a forward butterfly.

do a weave (or butterfly) and bring the hand close to the wrist when you wrap, so that one poi keeps going like normal, but the wraping poi goes around both wrists...

Posted:I just posted this in the "jedi set" thread. further explanation as to the terms "airwrap" "Hyperloop" and "inside" and "buzzsaw" are found there.

yet another variation of the inside hyperloop, at least I think it is inside....

when doing the forward hyperloop, bring it inside, but right as you do....stick your leg in the way to catch one poi head, and let your upper arm catch the other poi head so they both recoil at the same time, and it goes into a reverse hyperloop, and you come out of it on the same side that your went into it on.

So, the trick to it is....you need to put your foot out just after a poi goes by, so that one will wrap on your arm and the other will wrap on your leg. it is a matter of timing...and being quick with the leg.

I just started using slightly longer chains, so in order to airwrap inside I HAVE to hyperloop it, but the longer chains make it easier to hyperloop.

Posted:More hyperloop variations, this time from THE Wrap Master Funk....

Got three more wraps from a hyperloop, some inside, some outside, some not sure....maybe 1/2?

anyways,

#1 I discovered that I can do the double handcuff wrap (weave style) from a hyperloop. do a forward hyperloop, then as they do the second rotation, punch both hands out into the center of the hyperloop, so that one poi wraps on each wrist, the poi will recoil and you will come out of the hyperloop on the same side, but going the opposite direction (reverse). It works from reverse too. (hint, keep your hands apart by slightly less than half the length of your poi)

#2 do a reverse butterfly, bring it inside and hyperloop the chains while they are on the inside.(yes this can be done) as this happens move your elbow out so that the hyperloop butterfly wraps on your bicep. belive it or not this move it possible and do-able...you will come out of it on the inside and move into a forward butterfly.

#3 this last one gets funky, I only pulled it off three times last night, and I know the theory behind it, but not the exact mechanism. do a forward butterfly, then bring it inside on the right and hyperloop it. Then (quickly) bring it around to right untill it is inside again (180 degrees from where you went inside with it) the chains will unwrap (if you did everything correctly). and you will be in a inside butterfly (burn the nose butterfly, AKA buzzsaw butterfly) Videos will be up on our web site eventually. till then I will continue to email high quality videos (mpeg) to whoever wants them. I can only fit about 15 seconds in a yahoo email, barely enough to show one move. And I don't have video of the four hyperloop wraps yet, but I will soon.

Posted:Drunken Leg Wraps:

With these you step your foot in front and across from your opposite standing leg and wrap and let go before your stepping leg hits the ground, feels drunken so I called it the "Drunken Leg Wrap"

Posted:Ooh yeah, and this one too,

Phuhzzzie Wuhzzzie Patend Super Psycho Behind the Back Bicep/ Shoulder Wrap:

This one I learnt in one of my many attempts to learn B.T.B weave. Anyway, here's how it goes, you flick one arm behind your back as you swing and stick the other arm out to the side. Before you know it you'll have a poi comming from behind your back over your bicep
With a little bit oftweaking the poi will hit you in the head and hurt like a bitch. With a little less tweaking you should have a poi spin behind your back and over your shoulder. Using this knowledge, a little bit of skill and some luck you can train this wrap to land anywhere from just on your shoulder (like a parrot) to accross your chest
This one will singe your hair, unless you are bald, or wearing a hat, or have wet hair, or have fire proof hair, or you have steel hair, I could go on for ever...

Posted:you can also cross that drunken leg behind you

I like this one though, Nasu showed it to me.

do a windmill and then cross your arms infront of you (almost), and let the right poi wrap on left bicep and vise versa, at the same time, and they unwrap into the opposite windmill

Posted:Yeah that's right I feel drunk when I do this wrap because your body is a little off balance, it also reminds me of dunken boxing I also do this one on a back step which is a lot more stable.

Posted:Well, I figuer it was about time that somebody opened the vault on this now ancient script, blew the dust off of it and added something new, and who better than somebody else! Unfortuneatly that didn't happen so I had to do it. Anyway here are two new wraps I've found.

1. Boris Karloff Mummy Wrap: Right poi comes across the chest, under the left armpit, up along the back and up over the right shoulder. I've named this one the Mummy Wrap because it encompasses a lot of the body like a mummy's shroud, I make refrence to Boris Karloff because he is a legend and can do a better job than a computer could ever do.

2. Dr. Hannibal Lecter Wrap: Right poi goes behind the head, under the left armpit, up along the chest and over the right shoulder, keep your head out of the way with this one. I pay homage to Dr. Lecter because not only is this a psychopathic kind of wrap, but if you mess it up you're likely to be doing one of two things. Eating the head of your poi, or wishing you are wearing a face muzzle (as pictured right ) to take the blow.

Posted:over wrapped 7+ bt rvs . wrap on the right side of your body normally and then on the left side of your body the left poi gets thrown under your right arm wraps all the way around untill it is on the left side of your body swinging downward, quickly move the right arm far right 90* and the poi will un wrap with an extra revolution around your right arm.
Its a really weird wrap I have never seen done. I need to take video of some of these tricks.

Posted:... There is NO definitive listing of wraps. While I applaud the effort isn't it just better to realize that you can wrap off any limb or part of body at a 90 degree angle from any direction and timed together or split timed...

I mean god forbid poists use their imaginations to come up with wraps wink

Posted:No wait Kael... the phrase "Definitive List" came from the fact that there were many different wrap threads floating all about, some useful, some useless...

So CRD took the time to compile all of what had been compiled into a single "definitive list" and save us all from a flurry of partial to sucky lists.

It was in no way meant to be all encompassing. Obviously there are infinite wraps. biggrin

Posted:Inspired by a session at the Spitz last night and by our wonderful friends over at GSC here's a couple of wrap combos that are probably only suited to people with sock poi or a helmet wink

The palindromic negative space combo: Start with a forward BF on your right side, stall the left poi onto your right shoulder and leave it there, bring the right poi over your left arm, up underneath, bounce it off your chin, back around off the top of your bed, back up inside into a duowrap off your right hand (you can keep the head-duowrap thing up for as long as you want if you're that way inclined wink), unwrap and then bounce off head, back the other way, wrap off chin and then flick the left poi off your shoulder to go into reverse butterfly.

The turtlehead. Wall plane weave, go into an airwrap, stick your head out (hence the turtle bit) and wrap the ends off your chin and top of head to bounce back out the opposite direction.

Posted:I discovered another overwrapped wrap, this one starts with the rvs. 7 bt weave with wrist wraps. on left hand wrap over the wrist with right hand untill 1.5 revolutions you then turn left. Do people take into account the fact that you can do half bicept wrap and turn your body and it will unwrap just off teh inside of your arm. YOu can aslo wrap one full time around your arm and keep turning, the hardest are moves that wrap once and a half times so you have to turn opposite of normal to unwrap them and it gives another beat to teh whole mess. THese wraps are essentially I think 8-9 bt wraps because compared to a 7 beat wrap these unwrap off your arm for an extra count. Will take video once I can do this and many others slightly cleaner.
