i went away and tried that out!! and wow, i can now remember why i had bruises, it hurts like hell.. i couldnt do the reverse (for Me) corkscrew, for about an hour, and then it clicked.. so thankyou all, without this thread i would never have realised that i couldnt do it....

so i am now going out there to learn all my moves again, but backwards!!

does anyone have any padding that i can borrow, cause i sence this is going to hurt, and take a long time!!

a 4bt is when you do the 5bt motion on one side and then the 3bt on the other - so if you can do a 4bt both ways round then in theory you can do both the 3bt (weavesmiley) and 5bt as well.

I know this sounds like jibberish but i don't know how else to explain it. Do a search tongue

Posted:Yes. thats right.

Although it feels like the extra bit is only on one side in 4 beat, its actually on both.

cos it extra-twists on one side, and extra-untwists the other

whereas the 5 beat extra-twists and extra-untwists on both sides.

That confused me for a very long time...

Like most theoretical knowledge, that's totally irrelevant to actually learning the move, and will probably just make it harder to learn. So i probably should have kept my mouth shut ubbangel

good plan, you've probably all experienced this, but cos i tought myself and didn't know any poi people at all for like the first 2 years i didn't realise you shouild learn everything backwards. rolleyes

i then had to spend about 6 months re-learning every trick i could already do. Very frustrating!! mad

Posted:Doing the three beat is easy when u know the motion:

1. From doing a normal weave on the right hand side take a look at which poi goes over to the left first.

2.Now keep that one on the right for an extra spin and bring up the left hand

3. Repeat on the right



I have no idea how you can do the four beat but not the 3

Almost as insane as bein abl to do the 7 but not the five

Posted:5 beat you mean? Erm, yeah, but unfortunately, once you've learned something, it pretty much always seems like a really easy concept. In the learning process, you need to break your muscle memory from more simple moves, which is tough.
