Posted:this isnt really a new move as such, but it is an interesting observation i made earlier on today that some of you guys may find useful/ be able to comment on.
two one handed split time butterflies (4 poi) can be moved in basically the same way as the alternate butterfly combo in the moves section of this page
cool aye! it's taken me a while to get the hang of doing it, and i cant move my feet much while im doing it, but at least its a start and i have some sort of basis to be going on with.
also, i was wondering if anyone has any tips on doing butterflies with the top of the hand (rather than the palm) leading?. there seems to be a way of doing something that is kind of a weave, in as much as the poi change position in relation to your body (one goes closer, the other further - vice versa) while your body and feet remain still and your hand contorts to all sorts of funny angles
woefully inadequate description i know perhaps ole phunky can phrase it better?
and bender, youll understand what i mean by top of the palm leading, think of pulling rather than pushing and ducking under/jumping over staffs ect with the poi going
