Posted:Cant figure this one out. Regular butterfly waist wrap is no problem but having no luck getting it split time. Any advice?

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

Posted:lots of split time ttn practice?

never really had any trouble with this one, but it might be worth remebering that ttn transitions in split time take place at the bottom and top of the circle, rather than the sides in normal butterfly.

Posted:But with alternating split time butterfly moves such as the ST low wave, there are 3 beats instead of just two. Im not really sure how this fits into the waist wrap which is what screws me up. Normally, the hand in front of you does two beats while the one behind does one. Does this mean that at one point, your wrapped arm will also do 2 beats in front?

Posted:Eh? In the split-time butterfly low wave there are still only two beats - one in front, one behind. I guess you could add a third, but then you could add a fourth as well. Seeing as each arm stays on its side, it doesn't really matter.

And split-time butterfly waist wraps when I do them don't do any more beats than same-time ones.

Posted:No, if you take note of how many beats each hand does in split time low wave, you come up with 3. There are only 2 beats in the butterfly itself but each hand is doing 3 beats to accomplish that.

Posted:confused confused confused



errm, i dont get it, split time low wave, exactly the same as butterfly low wave but offset 90 degrees. each hand does a cirlce infront and a circle behind, the transitions still happen at the same point (top or bottom) but they just hapen consecutavly, as opposed to concurently in butterfly. confused



you get a four count, but thats because of the offest, in butterfly its 1 (..) 2 (..) and in splittime its 1 (2) 3 (4), if you get what i mean, the count is twice as fast. maybe your definition of a beat is diffrent.
