Riiight.. been on a mission not to get left behind byt everyone who got to denmark to swap skills.... try this, the reson i got cole inna title is hes the oly person i recon gonna understand the following description

okokok, wall plane weave, for this example we are going forwards at the left hand side.

as both Poi come to the front (parralel with the body) the left had goes in a big circle whilst the right hand stays at the hip. both Poi are in line and make two circles, a small one inside a big one.

As the left hand comes down the right hand becomes the big circle and the left stays at the hip.

pretty good so far? good, now the same manouver but behind the back and waist wrapped so that first:

right hand is reaching round the back to left hip and left hand is going high infront then

left hand goes small and carries btb to round the front at the right hip and the right hand goes high infront.

got that, good

Now, ther is the small matter of a further transition from the front version to the ww version..

so it goes...
both infront left hand high,
both infront right hand high,
both behind right hand high (with the left hand comming round the front of the waist at the right hip),
right hand ww left hand high (the right carries),
left hand ww right hand high (the left carries),
both behind left hand high (but with the right hand carrying round the front of the waist to left hip)
and back to both infront, left hand high.

PHEW!!!!!

*sits back and waits for flood of expressions*

it is a lovely little combo i assure you, gotta see it on fire, you can also turn out of it and stuff, one high and one small in parralel (by "high" i mean giant, or longarm, not just held high, but following the circle in a big arc) is just a lovely thing to play around with anyway.

Love,

T

Umm, I'm confused Tom. Is this a ww with extra beat both sides with extensions?

Not in Denmark either

lol, yo ross (not ian), nice ta hear from ya.

i dunno really, as im not shure about the technical definition of a waistwrap but basically its the standard extensions at the fron, but the right hand one goes round the back and leads into the left hand ww extension, the straight to right hand wwextension and the left hand extension behind leading round infront to left hand extesion in front.

Im shure that dosnt help

Hmm... I already do the first bit in your post, and I'm almost 100% sure that moohaahaa does lots of the other stuff you mentioned like the BTB WW versions.

Looks wicked, but I need to be able to get those pesky BTB WWs in first!

I think Cassandra does it one of the Paris videos and straight after watching it I was out in the garden practicing it - it's a lovely move.

Yea man, someone should patent/ copyright this variation. I got afew simila but nothing this complex, really cool stuff. Just changing planes. My new fav is continious 1 handed btb ww (alternating from btb to in front) and then pulling every other combo with the free hand then back into btb weave's and doing it all again other side.
You gotta it no matter how difficult.

Its all just smoke and mirrors

Could you clarify that please Taniwha, sounds interesting but you've lost me.

dss - that sounds a bit like the ww combo pk spins on 'how to'?

example: left hand in btb ww position with right hand doing extra wrist circles all over the place. start right hand at left hip (crossed in front), then circle over left shoulder, across to circle over right shoulder and drop down and into btb waistwrap with the left Poi.
when you get to the other side you can take out the left hand and do the mirror of all these circles.

is that the sort of thing taniwha?


nix? - moohaahaa showed me the transition from from front to back and vice versa last week (the leave one arm high to do an extra wrist circle thing) and it does look gorgeous i haven't tried it yet though but will surely blag the full version off ya when you get down here.
see ya soon man
