Posted:err... before someone yells at you for not posting in a pre-existing thread instead of cluttering the search engine with more theads titles that keep you from quickly finding real info on stated move, I would like to point out that leaning a bit forward with knees bent is also a huge help. wink

actually, tis ok - had a hell of a time finding the threat I "knew" existed on BTB 5 beat weaves - never did actually. It is out there somewhere though!

maybe it was just a fragment of another thread.

Posted:i was taught the 5 beat weave last week and was given a really great tip to remember which way your hands are supposed to go....if you are moving from the left side of your body to the right with the poi, your right wrist should be underneath your left and pushing your left hand across your body, and visa versa for the other way. you then just need to figure out the way you need to roll your hands/wrists in a way that is comfortable for you......hope i explained it ok, it worked for me!!! good luck wave wave wave
