Posted: Sure, I can't do a 4 beat windmill to well, but I can do a six beat realy good. all you have to do is wrap a poi around your arm in front, then bring it back behind your head, then it unwraps, and you wrap it again and bring it forward, unwrap, and repeat...
we eat and we drink and we smoke and we try!

Posted: This is a joke, right? You can do a 6-beat but not a 4-beat?
Posted: I'm not joking, Adamrice, I have done the 4 beat a few times, but I suck at it. Wreaping is just so much easier. And I don't see how a person could do a 6 beat without wraping. I have heard refference to an infinite windmill BTB by turning 360, I'm sure it would probably work.
Posted: ....A six beat windmill is the same as a 6 beat weave. It is non-existant. Yes, yes, myself and I am sure plenty of others that are flexible can get 6-7 beats into a weave but that's not the point, trying to see how big of a number you can get. When you can do a 5 beat weave or a five beat windmill you are saying that you have learned the transition of fluidly moving between forward and backwards. Just because you managed to get another turn in their doesn't mean you learned anything new, it just means you turned a little bit farther or threw a wrap in.
Also my point of view on a five beat windmill is that if you can't currently do one don't worry about it. The only people who can notice are adept twirlers it doesn't really add to the effect of spinning at all. It looks alright with a slow corkscrew, though.
Posted: Sure it's pointless, but wouldn't it be boring sticking to the same old routine all the time. Challenge is one of the thing that makes learning something new fun. Satisfaction in learning new ways to contort you hands so that the poi don't hit you. Knowledge in learning new ways the body works. But hey, what do i know. I stopped spinning last year.
