Posted:Does learning under the legs butterfly help with learning btb butterfly? And is it better to go from a btb butterfly in to a btb weave? And can anyone give any adive on the btb waeve, dont you have to turn you shoulders alot as your hands come to your sides?

It could be worse - we could all have normal jobs.

If nobodies perfect, then I'm nobody.
