Posted:Hello everyone.

As unspectacular as this might seem to the pros, I have discovered the extreme satsifaction of being able to perform the backwards weave and the windmill... and then combining them into the fountain during the backward weave turn. It took me 5 arduous hours of repeated blows to the head, shoulders, back, and *bleep* in order to get it right. Now I find myself preferring the feel of the backwards weave instead of the forwards one.

I expect this bliss to last for a couple of days, afterwhich it will wear off and I'll feel the need to learn a couple of new moves.

Posted:A fountain is a wall plane weave to reverse weave and back again, with the first transition low and the second high as I'm told. There isn't actually a windmill in it at all.

that's it that is. nice one mr x.

its the big circle thing that jillings goes on about that makes it the fountain.
and like diana said in her post ages ago, the splitting of the move into 6 groups of two circles is how you really see where the move comes into its own apart from rev 3bt to fwd 3bt weave in the wall plane.

Posted:A fountain is where you light strips of steel wool on fire and spin them instead of kevlar. Sparks fly all about. Henseforth the term 'fountain'.
