quick armwrap explanation - spin forward, then when the poi comes to the top of the circle, stick your hand near your shoulder and poke your elbow out to the side.

the poi should wrap round your outstretched elbow until it hits, then bounce it back out and unwrap the other way, so you end up spinning backwards.



Links:

This is good but complicated

this is also good

good simple advice and stuff

manifesting stuff at different times...ubblol



ANYONE who talks about how people should 'please do searches' should TRY searching for a useful thread that tells you how to arm-wrap if you know this site so bloody well and care so much about threads not being duplicated umm



(edit - this isn't aimed at Durbs who is generally lovely smile he's just following a bad method of redirection that's been established and maintained on this site by the moderators)



no doubt this will be met with another reply from a moderator about how they don't have time to do that. thats what happens every time i say this.



but if you can't find it easily then how the hell are people new to the site expected to? umm

unfortunately like on pitp this version was not spaced and clored lovely like on spherc, nor complete with vid links either..

Posted:in my opinion the most simple arm wrap is where you wrap the poi that is in youre right hand around the bit of youre arm between youre hand and youre elbow, on youre left arm.

practise doing it with one poi.

its easyest to not let much of the length of the poi wrap around, just let the very end (near the head) wrap. and the head will bounce off nicely

they are used to change the direction that the poi is spinning, and to look pretty smile

the wrap i described above can be used to transition from weave to butterfly smoothly. or visa versa..

go play weavesmiley

hope ive helped peace

Posted:One thing i have seen that looks rather cool, and isnt really that hard, so long as you have heavy heads, is 4 wraps, one after another, in butterfly.

Start with fwd butterfly
wrap on right arm
wrap on left arm (now in reverse butterfly)
wrap on right
wrap on left (back to fwd)

The trick is doing it one straight after the other, so that..well, its really hard to explain. but there are no 'slack' beats between wraps. kinda like the alternate butterfly is to the mexican wave. I'll wirte more detailed later, if needed. just pm me if thats not clear.

Or another one, that i think looks cool, is a leg wrap, from forward to backward butterfly. As they cross at the top of the circle, lift one leg straight out - either one, dont matter which - and wrap both poi around the outstretched leg. This is a pretty cool looking changeover, i think, anyway. One thing, though, is to make sure that one hand is pretty far in front of the other, or they tangle.
