Posted:hi all!
I have this one big problem, I just started Poi a week ago, and following the Free Poi Lessons of the site. So far I can get everything except for the Weave. I really cannot get this move. I can do it with one Poi, with each hand, but then I don't how to start the move and how to coordinate both my arms... ubbloco
If anyone one could help me with that, I would be really grateful.
It's really not easy trying to learn Poi by oneself sometimes....
I tried to use sticks in order to figure the movement of each Poi, but it didn't work either, ubbidea I just can't figure this move out, and it makes me mad because it seems to be a basic move....
Thank you all.
Zavie. ubbrollsmile

Posted:ok..is it normal to look like a constipated old man when you do btb moves? Half bent over with your eyes scrunched up and your tongue poking out. I ask because thats what I was told by my neighbours kid I looked like when I was trying the btb 2beat weave.

I totally agree. Until my friends had learnt the weave and I could watch them do it I didn't even get close to doing it myself, no matter how much over under out I was doing!

I tried the sticks thing too, and it didn't help me at all.

I'm afraid I have no real advice except persistance. Some people can just pick up the weave in no time at all, others (like me) have to spend ages and ages messing around with it.

But once you get it once, you'll be so close! Just keep at it.

Rock and roll!
