You cant go straight into forward BTB from forward normal. You would have to stop, wrap, or turn because forward BTB is the reverse of forward normal.

By Royal.

Well, if u use logic u would assume this is correct. But actually its not. Most people go from rev weave into rev btb weave. (Its just the way it works) Ask anyone... its eaiser than going from for weave into for btb weave(well for normal people anyways).

But to get real confusing i like going from for weave into rev weave btb. Which can be alot harder than it sounds. Give it a shot.

Its all just smoke and mirrors

I like to use the BTB waistwrap to get in and out of it because it feels real tight...

i would disagree there but that may just confuse matters more.

i found that turning and the use of carry's help lots for smooth transitions into btb resulting in few if any 'separated' beats (beats out of the weave at either side of your body).

I've foudn the simpel solution to all of this lies within the giant weave... I use the giant weave to transition in and out of my BTB weave.. but then agian I'm jsut as liekly to keep beats outside the weave as I do plenty of moves with them seperated too.. depends on what I'm doing or about to do when going in or out..

YEA BOYYYYY.... those giants are the coolest feeling moves. 1 of my all time favorites. But i think to be able to to good giants, u need to be able to do good normal btb rev and for weaves first. Once u get them, GIANTS ON!!!

Its all just smoke and mirrors
