Posted:hey guys, how's everything happening! yeah, i've been watching this video relentlessly and i've come across just a couple moves i can't understand much. if you could give me some advice and all... i'd give you my children.
( i found this video here, i don't know who he is, but he's fantabuloustic )
if you fastforward to about 1 min 40 seconds, he does this weird thing and then he spins around with the poi. i can sort of figure out out, like you bring the right poi to your left and your left poi to your right, and you spin and it brings it around. what's this move called? and how else can i use it?
i can sorta get it but the end is kinda iffy still. his arms are jutting out so much i can't quite get it.
Posted:I don't know if it has a name, I just call it the whirlwind. It starts with a crossed reel and ends with a crossed reel on the other side, then you can link them together. There are a few variations of this move as well. You can extend your arms to make a giant version, you can add extra beats or you can combine giants and extra beats to make flower whirlwind patterns.
Another similar move is done with the poi held near the neck, then you spin like crazy . Rovo has a couple vids showing off this move.
BTW, Zan (The guy in the video) will be releasing a tech poi DVD soon which should be pretty sweet.
