Posted:I know the Subject sounds oxymoronic but I was wondering if anyone else has ever played around with this. I started by doing a one-handed butterfly and choking up the chain one hand at a time until it got smaller and smaller. Then I realized you could grab one poi with your free hand and make a smaller circle with one poi let go and then continue spinning one-handed. I started grabbing one and wrapping the other then going into a weird one poi short one long weave, also hitting one poi so it spins twice as fast as the other creating a 2:1 timed one-handed weave, you can change from same time one handed bf to split-time onehanded bf easily in this way, and many others I was just playing around with. I am not good at any other one handed moves other then same and split-time one handed butterfly's but I imagine other one-handed moves could also be manipulated in this way.

Posted:Yeah if you catch one head and wrap the other then throw the held head in the other direction it looks awesome. These are also great for transitions.
