Posted:I have posted a couple of poi vids in my member gallery:
http://www.homeofpoi.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=500&ppuser=7009
br>The are both from the same run, but I had to split them in half in order to upload them onto the site. Part 1 is the starting video.
Sorry, they are a bit repetitive (must learn to be more concise) and the amount of compression has effected the quality quite a bit. (They are in DIV X compression). I've missed off quite a few moves, but will endeavour to shoot another vid in a couple of weeks and get them all on.


Geez, I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.

Posted:I see you like taking your bf stuff utl...

I have two patterns that will help youmove as you please with the bf stuff down there..

1- spin the left poi clockwise up front and the right poi clockwise in back (essentially the same as left poi forward on the left and right rev on the right, but I do all this wapll planed) now bring the right to the front between the legs and the left to the back btl.. like an alternating bf.. then bounce them back to their original positions. switch the left to the rear plane and the right to the front plane. and then send them btl and back..
I think I remmeber seeing a little something like that.. or close to it in your clip..

2- once you have that down bring them through and around the side before going back.. for instance.. if the left is up front and the right is in back.. put them btl.. and then take the right poi and go either to the rear right or left from btl.. and take the left should go to the opposite side front.. (easiest being left to the right front and the right to the rear left, but its good to learn both if you can)

after that anything bf utl you want to do will just happen wink

cheers on the clip.. nice one..

Posted:I'm a big fan of ult stuff (as you may have noticed) As i've already stated, I missed a few moves on the vid. Particularly ult weaving and turning variations. Will shoot another vid in a couple of weeks and import it into the gallery section.
I'll give that move you suggested a go. I'm not good with following written descriptions, but I will work through it.
I managed to do a nice butterfly weave ult yesterday. Came close to a 4 beat bf weave ult as well.

Posted:I love utl as well..

the move I mentioned is like an alternating butterfly, with a few added kicks..
its alternating to where one is always in front and one is always in back..
its kind of a combination between the altenrating bf between front and back using the side planes.. and the alt. bf overhead..

use the sides to get one front and one back, use utl to bring them to the other side (back, alternate, and repeat).
the 2nd one just has them do the side alternation again after going utl.. (go over thigh with the utl from the back one, and use the knee socket for the one btl from the front when doing tha 2nd side alternation..

anyway.. Like all alternating stuff, its a fun reel pattern...

good luck on the 4bt bf weave.. that pattern above, should help stretch you out (aa you go back over leg) to give you the reach to do it comfortably.. opracticing the bf corkscrew, and watermill in front will helkp as well..

Posted:I managed 2 complete repetitions of the 4beat ult bf weave today. I got it on video but i'm not posting it until its clean.
I can only do it under one leg, I dont think it's possible to ultilize both legs for the one continuous sequence unless you bail out to the starting point and start again on the other leg. It is rather contortionist poi and is not the prettiest feeling and looking move however.
