Posted:To turn one handed butterflies there are a few methods. I will describe two of them.

1. Single time butterflies transfer above your head, so as you bring the poi above your head turn and continue the butterfly on the other side.

2. Split time butterflies you turn when the poi are heading towards the side you want to turn. i.e. if they are moving to the left turn to the left.

Posted:A tip: Learn to keep your plains straight first. Look up and see how close the poi are to each others paths (regular time) or to the side (split time). Then follow Jez's advice. You may find yourself hitting yourself. Again, look UP, and it takes away half of your blindness in this move, soyou can better track the plains and learn to not cross them.

I was just outside trying to learn this and this helped me anyway... Cheers!

Posted:Theres a video, I think Messy, that shows someone doing a butterfly with their teeth. Ive also seen someone do that at a club with glowstrings. Ive even done it myself once or twice with a practice set.

Let's turn those old bridges we crossed into ashes.
We'll blaze a new trail,
and torch the rough patches.
