Hi there!
While trying to learn a 5beat weave I stumbeled on sumthing tottaly different (lol) but I dont have a clue what im doingso I thought here would be the best place to ask!
Basically (well this will prbs make no sence tho!) I start off doing a 3 beat reverse weave, then bring it to a forwards weave to one side without moving my feet (just my tourso) then back to a reverse weave, do a beat in front of me in butterfly plan then do the same on my otherside (lost yet?). after doing this for a while I managed to squeeze in extra beast on either side.
A friend veideoed me doing this and in slow mo we counted 5 beats with my left and 6 with my leftwhat am I doing????

Another thing to add i geuss is that im doing this without any wraps at all. dunno if that helps tho!

thanks alot

Sounds similer to part of a 'full fountain', which would be 12 beats while in wall plane, with the back of your wrist facing forwards for the low BTB circles.

I live in a world of infinite possibilities.

12 beat weave with no wraps is impossible I believe... most I've seen without wraps is 7, and even that is ugly.

i think you are just doing a 5 bt weave in a wall plane with some wonkey ass shit on the side, lets have that vid, if you please.

The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earth worms dizzy.
It will however make cats dizzy and cats throw up twice their bodyweight when dizzy.

Another little confirmation:

What you were doing is called a ____ POINT weave instead of a ____ BEAT weave (replace ___ with however many beats you do). The regular 3 beat weave has 2 points, one on your left and one on your right. While doing spinning moves, changing planes from wheel to wall and back again, it's hard to count points, let alone beats, but basically all the moves where you twist your upper body is changing points, changing hand position and still gaining beats is usually gaining beats.

What is a point (as opposed to a beat)?

E pluribus unum, baby.

Beats move within points... a fountain is basically a 4 point weave.
