Posted:yeh fuck someone help us with btb weave.
i have started to do yoga and i think it's helping me in the way that i am more comfortable with my hands behind my back. so maybe streching is the key or maybe not cause i still can't do it yet. aaaarrrrgggggghhhhhhh

peace

Posted:go for the two beat first. And watch somebody do it in real life (not just on tv) practice with just one poi. one hand must go behind your back slightly befor the other. start from an alternate swing. try reverse and forward, one might be easier for you.

we eat and we drink and we smoke and we try!

Posted:Okay i learned it two weeks ago, so i will try to help.
First of all my way is a little bit confusing but i will try to describe.
If you look at the way the poi are going in front of you when doing the weave it looks like an eight, just in split time right? So if you let them tangle (still in front of you) you describe an eight in front of you (hands are together).
What i did was putting my hands behind my back, the poi was tangled and then describing an eight behind my back (hands still together). If you can manage doing that without hitting yourself on either side you just start doing it in split time. I hope this will help you as i know i'm not that good in describing all that stuff in english. I learned it that way hopefully it will help.

Posted:The way I learned (slightly unorthodox) was to do the reverse weave and then

start flailing my hands wildly behind by back. Believe it or not it

finally clicked after a couple of times doing it and then it was just

a case of making it fluid.

This method works alot better than it sounds believe me.

Posted:I agree with garbo.. I first learnt reverse BTB when I was actually trying to learn between the leg moves! As long as you're comfortable with the weave infront of you your hands know what they have to do, its just a case of finding a way into it.. I found doing the weave infront and then chucking my right arm behind and across my back and then continuing behind worked.. oh that and using soft practice poi!

Posted:Im so sick of btb. ... I have this massive mental block thing with the btb at the moment...
I have tried and tried and tried...
Its driving me crazy because I can do most other tricks but this thing is giving me the shits...
I have watched people, I have had my arms manilupited (sp) to the point of breaking, I have tried just two beat... sob... is this the end of my learning curve?

Posted:I found it helped to concentrate on each arm movement at a time, know where each one is going before you try to put them together. However you learned the normal weave might be the best way to practice in reverse... that's what I did anyhow although still having stamina difficulties! But can I do a btb butterfly? Not on your life. Sh*t is so backwards on my planet *sighs*

Good luck with it - never give up!!! NeVER
