Hey there! The best way that I've found to nail moves is to try and learn it one hand at a time, then go back to try it with both. And if you stil can't get it and it's frustrating you try doing something else and then come back to it!

Hope that helps.

try doing it with the poi moving at the same time and your planes parralel once this becomes comfortable just try doing it with the poi moving in split time once this is comfortable put the poi on the same plane.

pinwheel?

edit: i like being frustrated when trying to learn-sometimes it makes me more determined to do what i need to do to learn a move

I'm with faith on the 'what's a pinwheel' front, but as a general don't get frustrated thing - I find that if i have a really chilled place to spin (like the lake at my uni) I don't get quite so 'Im gonna go hit a stranger' angry when I can't do it.

keep your arms extended straight in front of you, if you notice your plane is off (I'm assume that's what you mean is the problem) alter the way to move your wrist ever so slight to correct it. It's also helpful to just work on one side, so since your left hand is the problem, try it with just your left hand.
