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...

like i said earlier in this thread, i thought this may happen but i couldn't sustain them long enough to test it until now - anyone else managed to do them without getting hot mitts?

Posted:well, PK, GOOD CALL! I actually have already tryed to do a three beat weave with one hand. to be honest, a two beat is very easy. And the only way I could reliably do a weave with more beats was to let one poi start to wrap around my hand then move them both over to the other side. It is possible to keep them in split time when doing this, but difficult. It flowed so much better than trying to do a three beat, that I just learned the wrap version. And I actually submited this for COL2, but malcolm didn't put it on there, not that I could blame him, it was kind of sloppy at the time. But I haven't really broke down what I'm doing with it. I think it may be a four (or maybe five beat), but I'm not sure. All I know it I don't think it is exactly a three beat. but I could be wrong. I can also turn with it, do 360's and stuff. I'll bet dangerboy would know....somebody should email him...Anybody got his e-mail adress on them? don't post it, but email him and find out for us, OK?

(edit: I should metion that I was just using regular poi (arm length), with just holding them in one hand. And yes, I have done it with fire....it's the only way to fly.)

Posted:I can vaugly do a three beat weave one handed with meteors... I start by doing a one handed four beat, letting it wrap about halfway around my wrist for the extra beats on each side, then, when you want to drop into a three, instead of trying to pass the meteors across my body, I leap sideways and kind of twist my wrist so the chains unwrap from my wrist and almost wrap each other, and my hand passes across my body palm up. looks hideous and not in the least bit smooth...
I keep thinking that letting go of the chain for half a rotation on each side, and rotating my wrist in the opposite direction, so i grab it with my hand the other way up would mean that it wont wrap my wrist, but I can't do it quick enough... Did mean i learnt a no handed four though, by wrapping my wrist into the chain for the cross beats, and letting it spin freely around my wrist for the side beats...

Ben

[edit: I should note that my meteors are about 7'6" and made of heavy chain... They are quite slow, but fairly unstoppable, and there is quite a lot of 'hang time', where you can let them spin freely in the air without touching them. means you can do a two handed three beat weave, and then add in an extra beat by letting go, turning your wrists over and grabbing the chain as it goes past...]

Posted:An eclipse of the sun is when all the glory and love in the world is blotted out by a small spot of darkness. But it's only temporary and the light again shines on us as the moon/star Destroyer moves on. We are left to contemplate that all that is nice about the world was all still there the whole time, even when it was dark.

There was an eclipse of the thread just now, but all it's Jedi goodness was also still there the whole time!
Now to build a bigger, more powerful death star!!!

"airstall" maybe?

If this works I'll post a little video.

And not long now I expect Dr Benderstein to leap into this thread shouting "
MOOOHAHAHAHAA My Monster is alive"

oh and one last thing.
I bet that I forgot to mention it before. The eighteenth council of poi elders declared that the hardest known member of the jedi set is ....

The 2 beat weave.

I'm not joking, ok then....
Go on. Spin a perfect 2 beat weave.
I can't.
