How do you do these? There is a video of simian doing them in Vanize's gallery.



Also, what is he doing at the end of the vid?

This is one of my favourite move.. yoinked from simian.



OK.



Go in from a waistwrap, but keep the opposite hand where it is.

So keep your right hand on the left side and move your left hand over to the right hand side of your body..



or...



keep your left hand on your right hand side and then bring the right hand over to the left.



Or..



holding your poi, get into the position, spin the poi... then come out...



smile



and at the end... its an anti spin weave.

Which I cant do.

i figured out how to cross them by mistake.. i was doing an underhanded butterfly (opposite direction than this https://69.94.66.234/display.php?image=butterfly.gif)
if you hold them inbetween rather than crossing all the way over it kind of looks like an atom

Crossers (if that's what you mean) are basically a reel done with the arms crossed over i.e. right hand on left side, left hand on right side.
