Posted:It's possible that your planes are not clean, which will cause you problems with various moves as you try and progress into them (such as reverse weave). Idealing, if you look at a mirror while doing the weave, you should see that the main circles are straight lines, with the crossover being the only deviance. What you might be seeing is that your weaves are curving inside or outside. Clean this up and you should be good.

Of course, it could be something else entirely as well :P. And "seriously fast" does nothing to help you with proper form.
