Empty your mind. Be formless, Shapeless, like Water.

Posted:Best way to learn something new, is to use poi that has very heavy or spiky head in it. More it hurts, faster you learn.

I do hope you're not taking the piss out of fluffiness. I've been to MA and I'll come back and kick your arse! (we don't say 'ass' in England).

PS - nice sun poi pic. Is it you??

i broke it down here. works the same way forward and backward for me --

my "trick" for BTB5s is usually "dipping at the knee for reverse, hop on tiptoes for forward". all of this probably makes little sense as to where, when, and how to apply that tho unless you already have gotten it once or twice by accident. good luck!
