Posted:I learnt it by doing a BTB butterfly (to get used to both hands behind me) then a normal butterfly bring one hang above my shoulder, back to a butterfly, then the other hand untill I had my poi moving one in front one behind at all times.

Posted:It has the same sort off motions as a windmill or corkscrew, but the poi are spinning opposite ways, as if from butterfly. If you can alternatly take your hands over your head while doing butterfly, you should be able to do it by bringing the poi into the horizontal plane and keeping the switching, over the head motion continuous.

Hope that helps

Posted:It's not a weave or a wave (or a particle (aaarrggh! physics joke! gag, splutter, etc...))

Anyway; definitely not a weave.
