Hello everybody.As most of you have probably noticed i'm new to the board, so here's the traditional boring biography: I'm 19 and a second year college student who has been twirling for about 2 weeks now. I don't consider myself much of a poier yet but i'm working on it (i just got the behind the back weave tonight, woohoo!!). But anyway, i just wanted to say hi to everyone and introduce myself.

Oops, ok, small mistake, i was informed today that what i was doing was actually a reverse behind the back weave, i can't do a normal behind the back weave yet. I don't know if there is a difference in difficulty or not, but just to be accurate thats what i was doing. But anyway, i was at the RIT juggle-in and i saw someone do the Reverse BTB Weave and i picked up a set of clubs and copied the pattern then switched to a set of poi, it took about an hour. I don't have it down perfect yet, i hit myself in the legs sometimes (suggestions to fix this?) but i'm practicing.And to answer Pele, i go to RIT, i swing clubs, glowsticks and comet poi, but i plan to start with fire at some point smile.
