THE BAD NEWS: I can only do it naked.

This news is especially bad for my roommate.

Posted:HAHA!! Whats even stranger is that I'm the same way!!

Well.. I haven't gotten it perfectly but i'm almost there... I find that if i'm wearing clothes.. no matter how baggy or not, the poi ALWAYS hit then and mess up my efforts. The other day I could only do it in my underwear and beleive me... Crotch shots hurt A LOT more when you're not wearing pants.


I dreamt that I ate a 10 pound marshmellow and then when I woke up, my pillow was gone!

Posted:hehe, oh my

I'm close to getting it, I've been just breaking stuff down and practicing with each hand seperatly, now I have to try to bring them together. But it should happen sometime soon. And yeah, with my left hand, no matter what I do, it always catches on my pants. My right side is fine, never gets caught, but my left always done. I should give this naked practicing some thought, hehe.

Posted:Definitely do the nude, dude.

By next week I hope to have a btb weave that won't get me arrested when I practice in the park.

Posted:I am so amused. if i mess up it's (ok, when i mess up, which is constantly)usually a pretty solid hit in some part of my body. often my left hand into my right calf, on teh second circle on that side. in fact, that's what i do just about as soon as i start it, almost every time. i wonder if practicing naked would help... nope, i almost always practice in public, that would be bad. have fun guys

Posted:yeah, most of my attempts end in solid hit too...but one day I realized (for this move at least) that the solid hits are always after the poi brush some loose clothes and go off path. so I lost the clothes and it went like clokwerk.

give it a shot Kyrian! I'm sure you'd get an audience, whether it helps with the move or not.
