Posted:Throughout the world of poi there walk a breed aside from other moves. Many have claimed that they don’t exist, or that they did, but that they died out with some long lost tribe of poi masters, and now they are “just legends”. But, they exist, and not just in the fairy tales we tell young poisters and poiettes to make then scared of the bogie poi that live under their beds.

The Jedi set are the most technical of the most technical moves.
The Jedi set are the poi swinging moves which defy the known laws of the physical world.
For everyone of them, at the moment only a handful are known, is utterly a Jedi move.

Until recently the easiest known move in the the jedi set was a 5 beat weave to reverse 5 beat weave behind the back, preferably done in the wall plane. And yet some exciting new discoveries uncovered using the latest state of the are technology in archeopoilogy. New additions have been threatening to join the ranks of the Jedi set, The Eight Council of Poi demi-gods are currently in congress to determine the place if any of these exciting new finds which include 2 air wraps within the Jedi set.

Not everything is known of the origins of the Jedi set. But it is much hinted in pagan folklaw, that in days of old back in martober two mysterious men, possibly of a tribe of orangeness denoted by their attire met in a misty field in Clay-pham a small village near Londinium. And lo, One of them who may have been the legendary Jedi Tony Touch spaketh unto the other, (the ugly stupid one with poor personal hygiene) who is, it is rumoured to be a distant forefather of the author. (alas the lineage has never been proven).

“That move is utterly Jedi.”

And to the sounds of trumpets from between the legs of a chorus of angels, the Jedi set was gently placed by a large crane amongst the meeting of poiers.
And the quest began...

That was many moons ago, and little remains to document what happened in that original quest...

if you look at and understand one, you do, by default, understand the other (inversely..).

this is why i advocate everyone drill messing up as much as they drill getting it right... ubblol if you can pull the move off cleanly and/or release cleanly from any point so the poi go harmlessly to the ground, you're more than doubly safe. fire takes more brainpower b/c you have to worry about what movements to make if you get the move right OR if you get the move wrong.

embrace the darkside of poi. there is no space more "negative" than the set of moves you don't do. biggrin

Posted:I know it's been years since the jedi set was released and not in 100 years would I have the time to read every post in the thread. but I think I may have found something worthy of being in the jedi set. a hyperloop double wrist wrap... with fire. instead of crossing the poi across the body to untangle the air wrap, you stick your wrists in the way. reverse the direction of the hyperloop. this may be the hardest trick I know. a normal airwrap is a walk in the park in comparison.

I'll get there too late if I shorten my stride, I'll get there too soon if I find me a ride, I'll never move forward if I try to hide this path that I've troden one step at a time.

Posted:funny how that happens. I can only do the btb weave in one direction and I'm not sure which it is. the btb 5 beat still seems a little pointless to me, but then again there was a time when I thought the reverse 5 was pointless too....

Posted:Its possible burncat.....watching me practice it is what actually got fNi on about double neck wraps because I was doing them by accident trying to get the poi behind me........I've gotten it succesfully 5 times so far and thats from the front to behind and back to front clean......but I've failed way more than 5 times ubblol the key is to adjust your planes when its in front so that they are angled slightly so that the poi are closer to you at the bottom of the arc and farther from you at the top, if you hit your nose with your chains it will fail but if you miss your nose you've got the right plane going, then when your at the bottom of the arc you arch your body way back and flip them behind you for one rotation and then bring them back to the front......good luck with it!!!!
