hey all
just posting to see if i can get any help/advice. I'm working on the corkscrew and within 20 minutes i pretty much got the movement worked out. My only problem is that i keep hitting myself in the stomach with the ball/tail when im bringing them in front of me after going over my head.
Any tips? or am i just doing it completely wrong? confused

(4t beat corkscrew and 5bt weave = same (ISH) hand movements but different names)




Yes that makes sense to me, doing a 6 bt corkscrew fell just like a 7 bt weave. Where do you think that extra beat goes missing?

it doesnt go missing.. its the angle.. when you do crosshanded moves, even beat moves fall lopsided.. but when you do even beat moves, odd beats fall lopsided.. a 4 bt corkscrew is the exact same as a 4bt weave, but because of the angle, you dont get the unevenness to it.. so it feels like a 5bt weave.. hence the same ISH movements when they really arent the same.. its just the symmetry you feel not the actual motions..

i dunno what im doing but it looks different to a normal corkscrew and it feels like im doing a five beat on the bottom but not on the top, cos im just untangling on the top....so i think i might only be doing a 3bt corkscrew (if that makes any sense)
