Posted:Ok, I have been trying to find an easier way to go into the btb weave and the only one I really have is like half of a low turn into a btb weave. it looks good when i can get it, but I only get it like 30% of the time. The btb weave is no problem, its just the transition into it that kills me. Anyone know an easier way to go into it??? PLEASE tell me, im getting so annoyed!!!! Thanks!!!-Eman

Posted:I don't know about any turns or anything, I just start with a side-circle, reach one hand behind and across, and I'm into a btb weave. You can start from a weave (fwd or rvs), separate your hands, and throw in a side-circle to get you to the same starting point.The more you work on it, the more your body will just know what to do. I was doing the btb weave for about 3 months before I could really do it fluidly and integrate it well. With poi, I keep discovering new transitions, etc, and it's almost as if my body figures these things out without any help from my brain.

Posted:adamrice,i heard thats easier, and i have tried it. i figured that there can only be a few ways to go into it, so i guess ill work on that way, it seems easier. i have gotten the btb weave for like a month now, and i guess it just takes time to get to be able to integrate it. well thanks, i appreciate it!!!-Eman

Posted:Now, just in case anyone wants a *more difficult* way to get into a btb weave, it is technically possible to get into it from a btb butterfly. I've only managed it a few times myself, but it's conceptually the same as going from a regular butterfly into a regular weave.

Posted:Another way to start it (for the reverse btb) is to swing the poi (half revolutions) in front of you - same direction - same speed - work them so the swing behind you, then as you bring them onto your left side flcik your left wrist and flow in to the weave. just be careful of the left poi when it comes on to the right side for the first swing as it will be off line.Thanx go to 'Orange' to showing me this last weekend!!Hope that works for yaPeaceM:-)~

Posted:1:Great flowing way of going into BTB weave is following a low turn. View the Home of Poi vids for an idea before you hit the garden. At the end of the low turn as the poi are behind you, cross hands behind your back entering BTB weave. 2:Another way is to go in following a backwards weave. As right arm is on underside coming back over to right side of body swing it down behind back. At same time bring left hand poi behind back and enter BTB weave.Hope this gives you some ideas.

Posted:the easiest way i find if you can do the btb reverse weave is:when your poi are on the second spin on the left side of you body during a reverse weave and your about to cross over to the right hand side keep your left poi for a single spin and instead of letting ur right poi spin on your right side, imediatly follow it round behind your back to the left side and you should automatically be doing a btb reverse weave with a bit of practice you will get it! or you can try one rotation with your poi on each side the go in to it with your right poi first. keep doing that and then maybe try going straight in to it it took me a few days to figure it out. then figure out how to get back out!hope you like the pain

Posted:Hi, I found that the easyest way to go into a btb reverse weave is form spinning the poi parallel reverse. When the poi is swinging up, swing one poi faster and the other behind you to the side of the faster poi. Now you are in the btb reverse weave.I hope you understand what I mean.------------------Blackfire

Posted:best way I found was to start by just doing a 2 beat BTB crossover, then do it's opposite, then put em together to get a 3 beat. watching someone else do it in person helps a lot too.

we eat and we drink and we smoke and we try!

Posted:This might be obvious to some, but no-ones posted it so I thought I would throw it in:From the windmill, when your right hand is behind your head, turn 90 degrees to your right and bring your left hand behind your back. Your poi should already moving in split time, so should go quite easily into the btb weave.Hope it helps

If you're not confused, you're not thinking about things hard enough.

Posted:when i was learning it i found that just spinning the poi at the side of your body (backwards) and then going into it from there helped, but not very pretty or fluid move, for fwrd i found that going into it from fwrd weave was easiest but i still hit myself and my shoulders are bruised to hell, i just cant turn them anyone know how?

when i am rich you will be my drug monkey

Posted:I always thought the easiest way was to go into BTB weaves directly from the corresponding regular one...

is that just me?

I guess that is pretty much what pk... described, so maybe not.
