Posted:I am able to do the basic moves on the site, as well as chasing the sun, forward and backward weave, low and high turn and I was just wondering if anyone could tell me how to go from one move to another, eg from the butterfly to the weave, etc. Or is it possible?Later laterRnan------------------Don't bolt your door with a boiled carrot...

Posted:I normally combine moves by taking doing one move then quickly bringing it back to the standard forward backward spin for a few rotations then go into something else. I also throw in a few high/low turns where necessary. As i get better at bringing moves into and out of the standard swings I find that I can move between moves easily without the need for as many standard swings between them.

Simply an excuse to play with fire.

Posted:Kolong, No it is not nessecary to go back to a standard swing(weave) in order to transition between moves...ie.(forward weave to butterfly, on the first downswing of your left poi coming back to your left side of your body swing your arm out and force the poi into butterfly, its all about controling the poi(which subsequently can only come with practice) And as for Butterfly to weave, when doing the forward butterfly, when both poi heads(glowsticks, or whatever) reach the bottom of the swing, simply force them down to one side of your body and throw into a reverse weave, or carry that force into a 360 turn and throw into forward weave. However even easier transitions lie in the world of wraps. You can(or at least i can) transist from nearly any move whether in be forward, reverse, or behind the back, into any other move using a wrap or two. Which also adds to your performance so why not? My advice, learn wraps early on, you will be amazing. Check out my thread Signature moves for some ideas on transitions from wraps. Hope I've helped.PLUHRDOC------------------Let us Light up the Night[This message has been edited by DocLiquid (edited 29 January 2002).]

Posted:you can also change from BF to weave by using the alt. BF. When you bring your right hand side behind you, turn to the right and bring your left hand across into a forward weave. practice and you'll actually be able to do it without moving your feet. (BTW if you turn to your left, with left behind on alt BF you can go into a reverse weave.)

Posted:i know that process well!! I have found the best recipe for learning transitions is just practice. Learn a move, then learn it backwards and you'll get several more combos. Also pay close attention when you do something stupid and NOT hit yourself

These tips are good, thanks, I too need work on transitions. DocLiquid - I havn't seen much of the H in PLUR, nice addition, I'm assuming it's for happiness. I've seen people add another R at the end to, but for the moment their reasoning escapes me.------------------Ambiguous
