Posted:You can do a 5 beat BTB weave ("normal" being 3 beat) - It's a bit twisty and awkward, but it is do-able

Slightly nicer are seperations/flowers and extensions where you make one arm do a larger circle, then throw in an extra spin whilst they are seperated....

Posted:I recently got the hang of btb 3 beat weave, having spent weeks unable to walk due to mass bruising after trying it with my beaming poi.

Anyway, the thing I found that made it easier to learn is to push ur hands right out to the side instead of keeping them still, then move your ass out the other way. Once you have it going it looks like a funky little dance, but you're doing the btb weave, so who cares. Then is just a matter of doing that loads, while moving a little less each time.

Son you'll be doing btb hyperloops! but Until then, stick with the shinpads and ski-goggles. biggrin

Posted:smile) u children with your interent sex talk
btb moves are key cus then u bring them back to the front but umm:)) lets say u doinga rev butterfly, try briging it back in front of u buty while keeping your hands together and tossing it under either one of your shulders and across your waist:)) brings it to the front but can be tricky cus if youra man it tends to hit in the wrong spot.
makes a sick butterfly that seems to pop up from every angle of your body= insane fx
ket me know if ur confused

Posted:I hate this move i have worked on it so much and yet i still cant get it

side note
i made my own practise poi from material and stuffed it with heavey jean materieal still heavey enough to swing well but light enough so it dont hurt!!!!!!

i tried leaning forward and i tried doing alot of things, i can get one half of the loop as i bring it behind my back, its just doing the twist and bringing it back round i [censored] up on.

Posted:i always found when i was learning btb stuff that my hands tend to wander towards my bum! concentrate on making sure you're doing most of the movement on your lower back - the higher the better. it makes it much easier to reach round yourself.

I had a dream that my friend had a
strong-bad pop up book,
it was the book of my dreams.
