Posted:Hello wave

Multi beat airwraps...

It is said they are known to certain persons on this board umm
but they choose to remain silent about their forbidden knowledge, so as to avoid The Tanglish Inquisition!

so this is my attempt to lure them into the cold light of day, whereupon we shall tortur... uh... ask them nicely to impart their knowledge ubbangel

OK, you know airwraps, yeah?

(or static airwraps, as some would have it wink )

they generally tangle on the outside then switch to the inside and untangle

(or go from inside to outside, but lets ignore them for now)

Now to increase the number of beats you can keep switching from inside to outside before the poi reach the point of untangling.

It is hard frown but possible smile and you'll probably do lots of them by accident while you're trying to learn how to airwrap...

i've found that i can get a 4 beat airwrap happening most easily by doing the following:
(description assumes anticlockwise spinning. Transpose lefts for rights and vice versa for clockwise spinning smile )

The poi meet at an outward angle so that the 'tangle' is nearer the head of the left hand poi, and nearer the handle of the right hand poi.

The poi spin 180 on the outside as normal for your basic airwrap, and both come to the inside.

As the poi are just coming round to untangle, move your hands slightly back towards your body, so that the poi go into the outside position again.

Try to 'hook' the left poi with the right poi head that is rising up inside your arms and moving away from you.

The poi should re-tangle in the middle of both poi at the exact point in time that the old tangle comes apart, and we're back at the beginning of an airwrap tangle.

Complete normally and untangle for a 4 beat (?) airwrap

Or try for another other couple of beats ad infinitum biggrin

i find that these look really lovely when done slow and clean, and the tangle slowly moves down the length of the poi from right to left (getting harder and harder to retangle as it goes).

This is far more noticable with thick, non-stretchy socks. With thinner or stretchier material, theres a tendency for the knot to stay much more in one place. i don't know why...

Now come on, you hardcore tanglehedz, throw the monkey a banana and tell me some moooooore...

cos i'm really rubbish at working out what knots should do. i seem to recall that the last time i tried to discuss tangles properly with Coleman we ended up moving socks around on a concrete floor for ten minutes before finally deciding that the move we'd just been playing with was, in fact, impossible...
confused

yeah, sorry about that.
it normally makes sense when i show it like that but i messed it right up didn't i ubblol

that was the night i stumbled into bf hyperloops i believe so not all was lost wink

i read about arashi's 10bt airwraps earlier this week and it made me wonder what type of poi he uses for this.
as far as i can see, wicks with ballchain is the only setup with enough momentum and little enough friction to allow this.

with *all* the poi i use i reckon i'd run out of momentum before i got over 6-8 beats, unless i start bouncing them (yuk! umm) or do the thing where you start the airwrap high up the strings and pull out gradually to increase momentum in the tangle...

Posted:Hmm... I always assumed what you described at the end there Tani as a regular old Buzzsaw hyperloop? I'm just getting in to hyperloops but my "standard" one that I usually do is doing a forwards weave in wall plane, tangling and turning 90 degrees in to a buzzsaw. I "hold" it there for a few rotations, sometimes up to 7 or 8, and then turn another 90 degrees and untangle, putting me in to reverse weave.

an easy way is to cross your arms and go in to an airwrap once they tangle uncross your arms that ends up in 2 beats, or do an airwrap and just b4 they untangle catch the poi again spin them in the direction they just came from so they re-wrap as many times as you want. catch them and then spin em back out, hey presto multi beat airwrap.



sorry bout the poo explination it's too early in the morning to think properly

Posted:hmm much random rambling about to come... sorry

i'm a little confused why Taniwha and Arashi don't dig the outside inside outside style... frown

erm so it seeems theres talk of about airwraps that have multiple inside beats (buzzsaw style inside both arms)
and probably the using of odd numbers of inside beats to keep the poi tangled?

smile for SilverShadow giving some other multibeat airwraps interpretations. Wasn't thinking about them in terms of adding direction switches, but thats actually erally cool. Played with a little crossed arm static airwrap stuff yesterday. Felt like a bit of a wigga tho ubbloco

and possibly some mention of airwraps that have multiple outside beats (outside both arms, wallplane-ish) then multiple inside beats (inside both arms, wallplane-ish)

Taniwha: i disagree that the "outside inside outside" airwraps are 'smoke & mirrors'. There's no point at which the poi are totally 'untangled'. i thiiiiiink...
and even if there was, who cares? It's not like you can 'cheat' with poi, cos there aren't any rules. You're doing something tricky that looks wierd. Full stop.

a beat is 180degrees of rotation, right? right??? ah, i try to avoid using conventions that just confuse people. Just use a few different ways of describing what your talking about and the message should stick...

plus seems to me that multi beats much more interesting if they're moving about, rather than sitting wiggling your nose as you pull of a 144 beat inner hyperloop tongue wink i'm more interested in trying to keep a series of 2 beat movements going at the moment.

and whats your point about saying airwraps are too complicated to talk about? i'm just wanting a little discussion here, not a grand unified theory or nuttin...

um, and i never said tangle near the heads. Although thats not a myth if you have to untangle inside both arms in wallplane, thats just physics. In the case of this one, i say near the head of one, near the handle of the other. Has noone else noticed\liked the way that outside inside outside tangles make the knot move closer to the handle of one poi, and closer to the head of the other? Not sure if turning it round would make the tangle travel the other way. My clockwise airwraps suck big time. You probably need fairly thick material socks to notice the travelling knot. Ballchain and thin socks and stretchy socks all tend to have very tight tangles, whereas thicker material forms much larger more visible 'nexuseseses'

but most of the btb ones i first posted in the ninja'z thread are multi beat, 4-8... bepending on how long it takes you to get round.

and i agree with t07 ont he two different techniques(the gentle isolation, and the damn fast entry wink), but disagree that one is better than the other. i use both cause they're different goddamit one is not better than the other....

black and blue part two has a few bits of hyperloopage but its oooold now so i doubt it would be teaching any of you hp-demons anything new, but it'll be up sooner rather than later( ubbangel, been saying that for a while...)

yeah, i was talking about static airwraps, not hyperloops

so i meant 'inside' in a different way to 'inside' in a hyperloop

means both poi are inbetween your hands and your body, in wallplane

and it never switches to the other side of my body (behind me, as i'm in wallplane)

dammit, must work now, not post about tangly things... spank

Posted:ok.. apologizing now for my ignorance of not reading all this before responding..



extended airwraps can go on for as many beats as you keep momentum... because the airwrap operates like the tanlged buzzsaw.. you know how the tanlged buzzsaw goes on forever(momentum pending) well so can airwraps.. see the misconception lies in the idea that an airwrap fuinction liek a hyperloop.. it doesn't it operates like your tanlges buzzaw.. basically it mioves towards the invetered plane does the quick circle and exits.. unlike the hyperlop which moves about the inner and outer planes.. see the inverted plane is what allows the momentum to keep going in the perpetual motion... which is why when you take an extended airwap and move it around you move it around like you would a buzzsaw fountain... because they airwrap is a tangled buzzsaw sideways so that its flat in the wall plane if that makes since..



as long as you can maintain control of the airwrap you can pull and have them spin a stupid amount of rotations... pulling them helps to extend them by shringking the diameter of the circles made by the poi, thus increasing momentum as well as making it easier to control..



anyone follow me on this? or is this another one of those "what the hell is rev talking about?" things





edit: I thought I should clarify



outer plane.. like the outer side plane outer wallplane.. that which is outside of us..



innerplane.. between the arms and the body NOT BETWEEN THE ARMS... do a butterfly in front and bounce it so that it comes up under your arms but in front of your body.. ta da inner plane...



inverted plane.. between the amrs.. i.e where the airwraps ends/or begins dependiong on direction...the airwrap works in the iverted wall plane, while buzzsaws are inverted side planes...





think of it like this.. you can take a weave in the wallplane and go from outer to inner plane and hyperloop it from outewr to inner plane which is different from taking and airwraping which goes from outer to inverted or inverted to outer..





I'll be in hop chat around 8pm est if anyone would like to come and discuss things in realtime.. hehe...

i don't think simone needs vouching for he is a suitably vouchsafed monkey anyway ubblol

ok.
replies first then back to my original intent...

i get you rev.
but cant think of a better way to describe, so am just going to go off on my own tangent ubblol
t07 i think you're being a bit unneccessarily unspecific, esp as airwap definitions are getting pretty solid now, but....*shrug*
simian did you ever look here at the 4bt airwrap discussion? that was my first and most successful way of solidifying something which had previously been an accident: the 4bt wall plane in front of you '3' and '9' common or garden airwrap.

most of my multi beat stuff is moving(dull to stick in the one position, unless it just goes on and onandonandonandonandonandon like 50 beats just because you can...

and heres a few examples:

buzzsaw hyperloop fountains: where you come up and over(carry) in a reverse buzzsaw(approx 6 beats, depending on speed) OR down and carry from a forwards buzzsaw(again about 6 beats)
add the two together... much easier to do in the order shown above, unless you start isolating to keep momentum(on my nonstretchy socks anyway), because gravity kicks in on the way back up again....

when you get half way through your fountain you can choose a direction to go in(body turns) so in theory you could do a 360 turn in 12 beats of this(i thnink the minimum is 8, but thats damn fast...) but my front wall plane ones are sketchy enough that i've not played around with more.

my intent with these is to be able to do with a tangle what a diabolist does with his toy.... whcih means inoutinoutinininoutoutinoutsuicideoutsuicideinout in whatever combination i feel like... give me a year or two ubbangel

what you(siman) are calling outsideinsideoutside i think you mean the common or garden but for an extra two beats yes? if so then there are variations ad nauseam on this one.

first is to change the pposition of your 'inside' bit(beats 2 and 3..?) so instead of it being in the middle of the square created by your two hands and your two nipples, try putting one hand to the opposite shoulder(works either side) and making the inside happen in and around your arm.(cole might be able to explain this to you in rl, hopefully in less than 10 mins and with more success than the last time he tried sth like this ubblol)

or make your inside btl(risky eek. i've managed this with aerotechs and blind faith, but not with socls and reason!), or bth(ouch)(this one i was going to describe in the ninjaz and btb hyps thread but never got round to, so if any of ytou remember this:

Quote:
round the head airwraps

again you need to isolate a little here.
two different variations, so i'll put them in personal chronological order

as if you were coming into a reverse tangle buzzsaw on the right..
come into the buzzsaw, then rotate your rightarm round the left side of your head, followed (very) swiftly by the left arm.. so the tangle goes all the way round and comes back out on your right side, then can be carried on (if you've still enough momentum...) or exited as you would a normal tangle buzzsaw.

second one is a bit more tricky.... so i'm going to go away and practise it for an hour or so so i understand it a bit better, and then i'll come back and post it here.



then hopefully now i've fulfiled my promise ubblol


second; theres shitloads more turning IOIOIO variations that transfer from an 3and9 to a 6and12 and back that i'll hopefully remember to ppost about in a while, but my fingers are falling off in this cold office and i want to post sth else about bfhyps so i'm off.

hugs all round

edit before posting: just read simians reply, and feel you should be asking about both, cause they are soooo interlinked(see my last paragraph) that if you do one and not the other then you's missing out on some the beautiful things that come out of extreme nerdity( ubbangelthat ones for you mr Batchelor hug)

I really loved your description of sustaining orbital (buzzsaw, but orbital is a better word because it removes the idea of it happening in classic 'buzzsaw' position.) airwrap, and revs comments are tying the diffrent ideas toghether. I havent read blue yet.



Hyperloops gennerally just piss me off, and ill freely admit happy learner status, but hints are somewhat frustrating.

Posted:perhaps I missed something mister monkey. (perhaps yor post wasnt' directed at me) BUT

I was telling you exactly what you wanted to know.. and that is multi-beat airwraps... because your basica airwrap is as I described.. and when you understand that then you know that a multi beat airwraps is the same as a normal airwrap.. only its not moved through.. whcihc inevitably leads back to the airwrap discussion.. ebcause if you understand that the airwrap acts like a tanlged buzzsaw, then you realize that by holding the airwrap and then moving it you cn get as many beats(and get them reliably) as you want.. thus getting 6,10,20+ beat airwraps...

by getting the poi to spin a proper airwrap (extended airwrap) as opposed to just spinning throught the tangle (i.e. from outside to inverted or from inverted to outside) like a 'static airwrap' ; you can move any where that you can move a buzzsaw.. because when you extend an airwrap you need one hand futher forward however slight.. this helps accent ithe sideways tanlged buzzsaw commonly called airwrap..

I mean I don' tknow what more you want.. that's how you do everything from a 2 circle to 20+ circle airwrap.. and it can be moved accordingly..

i think the reason the poi seem to climb over each other in airwrap orbital is cos of the angle of the strings, and pulling evens this out.

Posted:grrrr...jesus you guys. i'm gonna bitch now but don't take it too seriously but dammit listen [puts on a french maid outfit to clean all this shite up]. first of all i thiiiiink you need to understand the outside, inverted, and inside definitions, i made those clarifications for a reason, to differentiate btwn all these things. the point being which direction each plane is originating from.at the fingertips

seems like some confusion is still happening not because of calling airwraps in the wall and inside (i guess static) different than the weave(outside to outside) or maxi plus (outside inverted outside) or maxi plus variations (inverted outside) which is all fine, and correct, just renaming stuff and that makes problems for me cause nobody's ever bothered translating what a friggin hyperloop or airwrap is in my terminology and i stilll don't understand and why should i even give a frick cause my definition seems more mathematical and understandable and nobody seems to care that i don't know you just keep eating it up and then renaming it and cutting me out of the loop and prancing about like you own it and your poop just fell right out of the sky and i'm just confused cause now i don't know what you're talking about but i'll stop bitchin? but you gotta come correct on naming beats and i really think you might want to try going back to my definition which goes by number if times heads cross the side of the circle opposite the Crossover Point, in most airwraps this is also the tangle [but on outside inside (static?) it's a little fuzzy cause the crossovers are facing each toher). ask glass what i mean by CP if it isn't obvious.

4 beat airwraps i mean do four circles before moving to another side, no more. not with techniques, that would make a 2 beat, inside for 2, back out. you can't just add the total circles together and call it a 4 or text will dissolve. then there's about 500 addative ways to do a 4. i mean purist 4 beats, one way as i said long ago is to pull the knot away from the knot and plane like i think rev is describing. one way. another as i also said a while ago is to isolate in a minimal back and forth motion to keep the circles going. but i found another way the other night. i'm not going to keep typing right now cause i sort of frustrated with i'm not sure what except you guys need to chill out and stop renaming everything or at least list everybody's definitions esp. the guys' who are trying to help you i'm coming out of end of isolated five beat (because the poi are moving in conical spirals rather than crisp lines), stop your isolated hand motions, airwrap, and cross over the spiral for the basic ouside to outside and yes i was right it is invertable last night i got four on one side and 6 on the other by doing the cross arm airwrap and uncrossing on the other side like silver shadow said THANKS SILVER FOR ACTUALLY FIGURING SOMETHING OUT BY YOURSELF AND NOT JUST RETYPING WHAT OTHER PEOPLE HAVE SAID LIKE YOU KNOW EVERYTHING AND SAVING ME SOME FRIGGIN TIME AND GETTING SOME RESPECT FROM ME i hope nobody missed that. whichever. you guys have confused me too much now and i've had too much coffee and i don't even know what to say. plus there's a prrrretty girl with gorgeous lips waiting for me and i have rehearsal in two hours what the hell am i doing here



i think that glass' new "families" thread is the best thing to happen to hop since computers go practice that stuff and stop obsessing about airwraps

Posted:ok,



today.



multi beat airwrap/hyperloop/nexus (dammit am i begging to like that term?) 4 beats on the outside.



for a normal thingy, the poi tangle conical and the lateral force created pulls them to the other side. therefore to get more than one beat (or whatever, i call it a beat because its a rytum thing, you can feel poi pulse with the earth (gravity for non hippies) airwrap beats may well be semi quavers but whatever) as i was saying



to get more than one beat you have to damp the latteral force, then re-inject it.



in practice this means tweaking the hyp ever so slitghty, in forwards right hand on top i use the top hand to move toward the tangle, which takes out the latteral force.



then the tricky bit, in doing this you some how manage to make the leading poi miss the inside. the easy bit is the 4th beat cos that will follow the leader, maybe thingys work a bit like metiors....



the bit thats really ticking me off is reingecting the lateral force without going super wonky, any help out there?



T wave



p.s. and i may edit this, I got poi commin out of my ass at the moment, i fully dig the whole deal, but I dont understand errm.. thingys, thats why im participating in this conversation. (language is defined by the peaple who use it.) hug for arashi, drink less coffie wink

Posted:okay sorry i feel better now. all this renaming crap and not quite redundant enough to be logical explantions is just getting to me, my time is tight right now people ask me to help them and then i have to first spend an hour trying to understand what everybody means when there's already threads on this stuff and people just keep redoing what's been done and adding a new twist or term and starting a whole new thread, which is silly cause you _learned_ it somewhere and why rehash it just keep the energy going where it is. just look at how smart coleman is he just puts a link to the original thread. ask the question there if it isn't clear enough in it's original explanation, that way it doesn't become compounded by people reading different threads and having different ideas without even reading the original. and really part of me wants to read ego into it. this is just an example not of ego but of ridiculous confusion but like as far as i can quickly scan good ole rev trying to help just tried to teach glass what a hyperloop is and for fugs sake glass made up the term and could school all of us on how to be a clean whistlin mother and sexy nerd to boot! and i now here we are barfing out the same 4 beat explanations that have been typed no i mean pecked out cause i can't type well already and all because i just said somewhere wow i have another cool 4 beat btb move i found. these things aren't that hard and you are making things so much harder by renaming them nexus or static or whatever and we have to spend time cleaning up rather than helping to teach the fundamentals and angles. i've had my names for this stuff for years glass has had his names for years. you can name them again if you want cause we don't own the move but don't bring it here unless you didn't learn them here ie. taught yourself and you think explaining your language would help the discussion. Simian, this may help but it took so long to read all these posts that i can't be sure this was one of your your problems... with the same basic entrance (alas the entrance matters), there's no mathematical difference between a1 beat outside/inside airwrap and a 1 beat outside/outside airwrap, just the position to the body. outside/inverted(maxi plus variations, O/I, O/I/O, I/O, I/O/I) and outside/outside are different enough to call them something else which is i guess where the londoners have airwraps and hyperloops. and dammit i still don't know which a friggin hyperloop is. and friggin glass sat there and showed me but i forgot cause we were stoned in spaz out theory barf mode. can somebody please tell me in arashi terms?
sigh i need 2 car bombs and a shot of tequila
