Posted:ok im just hoping that by doing this im not explaining a move that EVERYone knows or sum1 else has already described,resulting in much laughing and pointing in my general direction..

so here goes, its a variation on the weave to backward weave..

however in doing this move you should always face the one direction (never move ya feet)

start doing teh normal 3 beat in front..then keep them in the same position

but turn 90 degres to you right, so instead of the poi crossin in front they are now swing in front and behind..crossing to your left..gottit?

k no just do the normal twirl into the bacward weave by bringing the poi past your waist and so they nw swing in front and behind but on your right hand side.

take it back and forth,from the front it looks very nice.

i have terrible sunburn,feel sorry for me redface

yeh if this is to hard to follow,do say an ile try again as i am notoriosly bad at explaining things ubbrollsmile

one last thing,when you get comfortable doing the 'niagra' (sorry) swing behind your back,so conventionaly your doing the forward to reverse weave all the way around...

...without..moving..your..feet. wink

..take care an all that XxxxX


never ever EVER, poke me with that thing.

just my little joke. As always.

Posted:Yep, thats a fountain. Dont worry much about trying to invent a new move cuz chances are its not going to happen. Pretty much everything has been done by this point. Its really just a matter of putting all the knowlege into an intriguing collage of flowing movement.



I suggest taking a look at some current work being discussed in other threads and perhaps trying to expand and build onto them instead of going "Hey, this is a neat move I just figured out, I wonder if Im the first one"

Sorry, but rubbish smile

There's always more stuff out there waiting to be discovered/invented (Now there's an old arguement) - you just don't know what it is until it's been discovered/invented smile

Posted:Even once you discover/invent something, how do you know it hasnt been done before?

Of course Im sure there are things that havent been done, hence the "pretty much" in that statement but my point was really just to not worry about it cuz theres more to it than just finding new tricks..

Posted:If you do this back and forth on both sides, so you're doing weave, then backward weave to the left, then forward weave where you started, then backward weave to the right, we call that a mandala. And, of course, you can do it opposite, start backward in the middle (then you can do whips on the sides for a variation). And it's easier if you pivot a bit, don't plant your feet. ubbrollsmile

Posted:Simpsons did it!

But never stop experimenting. It matters less if something is truly new and more about finding your own creativity. Some people just learn new tricks like a grocery list, and while that is ok up to a point, you never know what'll happen when you just mess around. Even if you don't find something new, you'll probably come up with your own style.

Plus, remember back when the juggers complained that poi was just club swinging without the grips? That was somewhat justified at first because of the tricks being done. But now there are many tricks specific to poi/glowsticks out there. If people didn't keep messing around, we wouldn't have all of those tricks.

So don't be discouraged.. smile

Posted:I believe in a philosophy a beautiful HOPper once told me:



If you think of it yourself, without any outside influence, YOU invented it.



smile



It doesnt matter if anyone has done it before, if you thought of it, then you invented it.



Alternativly, you can simply start using new names for movements EVERYONE makes that dont have names. smile
