Posted:The book "Welcome to the World of Poi" By Klaus Scheuermann
and the book "Poi Spinning" by Michal Kahn both have diagrams and are very portable wink Great for learning in the park wink

However, keep in mind when using books, or any form of reference material to learn from that move names vary alot from place to place, person to person.

I believe both of these books are available through the shop here on Home of Poi.

Hope that helps! wink

this is for outwards butterfly, cos im a spoon and drew the tails on the wrong way. but it works exactly the same for inwards butterfly, just opposite direction
