Posted:ok...i learned how to do the forward weave and i do it really well, but now that i am trying to learn how to do the backwards weave, i cant do it. what should i do to bea able to do the backwards weave????????

I recomend doing that sixties dance move where you draw your hands over and away from your face, from ear to ear whilst exposing the eyes. The man travolta styly dance technique (I hope that made sense). The reason is with that swishing movement away from your body it enable you to flip the poi in a straighter circular motion. I wish I could show what I mean!!!
