I'm really excited to write here for the first time, since I've been watching this forums for quite a while! I'm one of these guys who read the forums everyday, do the free lessons, taking the monthly $100 competition, but never really get the nerve to post anything
Anyhow! For quite a while now, I have been really trying to figure out the 5 beat. I've been doing the weave for a few years all nice and easy, but something just doesn't feel right when I add those extra 2 beats! Since I got no one around here who's swinging besides me(I live in Greece, not so exciting place when it comes to juggling if you ask me...), would you be so kind and take a look at this cool little video I just made? It's me "trying" 5 beat, but I'm sure I got it all wrong. Help? Pretty pretty please with sugar on top and chocolate chips and a cherry?
Greetings to everyone!! Although I don't talk too much, I feel like I know you and I love you all!

ok first problem is you're not weaving. You spinning them in the same timing but they need to be split time to be a weave. Practice that lots first as 3 bt weave and then you can move onto five. Problem is if you dont nail the basics good it's really hard to progress to trickier tricks.
also, you might like to try HERE for some really good video lessons

Posted:Yea i think that is in same time. To get it clean, with 1 poi up and 1 down, pratice or imagine your using a broomstick. That is where your poi would normally be, once you can understand that then u can concentrate and mix what your doing in your vid into your weave set and you get OFFSET WEAVES!! whoohoo only halfway there dude, keep praticing 4bt and ull have it tomorrow
