what you said is correct, though it is usually curled under at the end of the forearm - the 'wrist'.

here, have a link:

doing everything forward/reverse equals being able to turn. you don't 'have' to learn the reverse ones... you're likely only ever going to have an audience on one side of you anyways, right? haha. can you turn a 3 beat forward into a 3 beat reverse and back in both directions (left leading and right leading)? other than that, i'm just going to keep suggesting everyone who has trouble with extra beats to try the thru-wrap version first until your comfortable getting the movement down at the right time.

learn the base form -then-> thru wrap version -> +2 beat version -> tangle. works for weaves and butterflies in all planes essentially. biggrin

yea i agree sinner it dont matter how fast or slow i do it i can get the last beat in but when they're ment to cross to go the other side they catch on eachother, i can do it so easily forwards but having probs with this 1, i was thinking maybe am spinning 1 faster than the other so its catching up n hitting the opposite poi.

hmm. i saw a girl try to learn the 3 beat reverse recently who always got tangled b/c she tried to pull the poi across her centerline at the same time, instead of staggering them so that one leads by a half beat. if they're not off time that way, and you can do a solid 4, you'll just have to work on not making it a 5 on one side and 6 on the other. hehe.

but yeah, you don't have to turn 5-beat into 5-beat only. just like you can do 5/3 on opposite sides of a weave to get a '4 beat', you can do a full 5 reverse and full 3 forward across a turn or vice versa. it's fun.
