Posted:Very easy. Just shorten your chains (wrap around your hand once or so) and spin them between your arms like a wheel.

Let's turn those old bridges we crossed into ashes.
We'll blaze a new trail,
and torch the rough patches.

Posted:standard buzzsaw is in follow time (like weave) with you hands level...butterfly is a variation of it.......try isolating it & doing it horizontal, there's many variations to play with.

It took a while, but once their numbers dropped from 50 down to 8, the other dwarves started to suspect Hungry.

Posted:TO clear up confusion- the buzzsaw.

It is like spinning cicles by your side, only you do it in between your arms with a shortened string. You spin the circles in split time., they do not cross each other or anything, they simply spin next to each other, sandwiched by your arms.


Live like there is no tomorrow,
dance like nobody is watching
and hula hoop like wiggling will save the world.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
