Posted:Start doing the corkscrew and go to the weave, but then after you've done one beat on the left go up into the windmill!

[Basically corkscrew to weave to windmill and out]

It's a major sweet ass combo (especially if you jumpkick when you go into the windmill)

Posted:I think you answered your own question. It's a combination. I would refrain from naming that combo, or any combo period unless you want to unleash the wrath of the poi gods.

Posted:lol, poi dragon, meet bender.

if you need reassurance at this point ask Kinudin. bender is mostly harmless, just full of entertainment.

and that's a fairly simple combo, not to be rude but i gathered at some point we try to avoid naming combos and stuff cause people get upset or egotistical about it. not to be mean, just to say that's how things seem to go.

Posted:I think what everyone is trying to get at is that you are welcome to name any moves, combo's etc you like, as well as to shout out whenyou get something (We all know hat it's like to finally get that combo down pat).

However, for the purposes of the text-based Bulletin Board here, trying to stick to describing the compenents of the moves is a lot easier for others to understand.

Things get a little confusing just with the current names of serperate moves for a numebr of visitors, newbies and even those who've been off the site for a few months, so all the extra terms ends upmaking things too complicated.

But feel free to name it for off board stuff, or, when you mention it's name, follow the combo description behind it in brackets (!).

How does that sound?

how untrue! bender is one of the biggest bearers of unadulterated truth on this board! harmless he is not! i need not mention hurty, sharpy, etc..

why does everyone have such a problem with MikeGinny, wanting to put him in cages and what not? my only problem is that i get him confused.. MikeG.. MarkP.. Mad Scientist/Mad Chemist..

so i usually just skip over those posts.

Posted:Oh my (Poi) God, the guy just ask a simple question and all of you turn into an episode of "Whose line is it anyway".
Naming a combo is like naming a wrap. All it is, is going from one move to another. However, if you think even deeper, everything we do, is a combo somehow... Why does everything have to be so difficult
