Posted:Yeah. There's no real Anti-Spin Hybrid, it's a series of ideas to explore more than it is a physical trick to execute. So your "Isolation Vs Antispin Flower Antibrid" is technically just another Hybrid variant if you think about it.

Posted:True, I guess the word antibrid is a way for me to relate to a hybrid with poi in opposite. I think I picked it up on a youtube video and it stuck sense.

Posted:woohoo! I learned whirling in an octagon shape and the 5bt btb wheelplane weave turn grin Now, once I get the octogon shape down to 2nd nature, time to move up to a 16-gon shape grin oh also, learn to do it just moving myself in a straight line.
And for the most advanced move there is, I'm finally just learning to get better and just plain old dancing to the music with the moves I already know, that I believe is the most advanced "move" in the book.

I just got my first set of sock poi, I learnt myself how to do air wraps last night and learned hyperloops just now. next - isolations, I kinda got them but I think I still make them look sucky.

Isolations take a while to get solid, even after you can do them.

Posted:It's a whirling pattern used by Nick Woolsey in his video on whirling. You basically pivot in alternation on each of the eight points of a regular octagon so you whirl around a small circle.

Posted:Btb 5bt weave, Wheelplane btb 5bt weave turn grin Finally, my stalls are cleaning up and my isolations are getting better. Whirling without getting dizzy grin Reverse UTA crosser, Butterfly wheelplane meltdown, isolation-cateye hybrid, footwork is improving, Archer weave fountain, cleaned up btb 3bt weaves so I consistently don't hit myself, and had my first burn. That is everything I have accomplished this week ^_^ I basically just got everything I was just working on a tidbit before and came back later and knocked em off in minutes at a time. Also, I can do this thing where its like the start of an air wrap, they wrap once, I grab them so they are hooked around eachother and I throw them and they spin a few times and then it goes into a weave. grin I am very happy with everything I accomplished so quickly. Also I forgot about split-time same direction stalling with my arms extended out, then take the one facing up and bring it to the one facing down and carry it over. There, NOW I think it's a summary of my week.

Posted:WOOHOO, after all this practice with btb and crosser stuff, my arms are flexible enough that I can do a 9bt weave. And to make it better, it looks really smooth grin It makes me feel really good that I am now a group of a relatively small amount of people that can do it grin

The only problem I'm having right now is that I can't get the reverse 7bt on my left side. And thank you grin I seem to be knocking down everything thrown at me at around the same speed as I did thread the needle. With a few exceptions, such as the isolated buzzsaw took me a couple months, and my stalls took a while and still working on them. Anything having to do with isolations seems to be taking me a while except for the cateye, which was near immediately. But after that video of Alien Jon explaining the horizontal cateye was posted earlier today, I tried it, after trying it like 10 times, taking a break, and repeating a few times, I can almost do it. I can do it for a few beats and it falls apart.

Posted:You can add horizontal cateye to my list now, atleast for my right arm, almost with my left. I was talking to my cousin on Facebook, she went away for about a minute or so, so I picked up my poi, and I could do it after a few more tries. This is basically how I've been learning it. I've done it about 5 times and I can do it now. Now to do it with my other arm and ow my right shoulder, those do hurt.
Edit: Put my left arm on there now. They don't look too pretty, but I can do them.

Posted:Let's see... Figured out turns in hip reels & windmills (both chase and butterfly), butterfly crossers, wheel- and wallplane meltdowns, and antispin flowers. Figured out forward antispin flowers themselves, got how to change the point directions in a triquetra, as well as how to reverse the direction of a triquetra smoothly. Have two-handed stall transitions between split-time butterfly and chase patterns down, as well as a few stall plane transitions. Got my first few vertical orbitals, and am starting to get reverse hyperloops consistently. Just about have solid buzzsaw fountains.

That's right. I've secretly been pretty busy lately.

I don't even know how to do 4bt thread the needle, no matter how many videos I look up, they just don't tell what you do, it's just, "Hey look at me from the front and for 2 second on the side, and no I will not explain it get out of my face..." If I can get the concept of it, I'm sure I could do it pretty easily. If I am going to get something, I have to know and understand the concept or it doesn't click, once I understand it, I can do something with a very small amount of practice. And Alien Jon's video sure saved me a lot of, umm let's just replace practice with pain, on the horizontal cateye smile Thank you if you happen to see this. I got it in about 1 hour total of practice grin That video just made something click in my head, and I was like, "Oh, of course!" And I got up and after a few tries I got it for like 5 beats and I just extended that.

As for the windmill, I'll give it a try when the weather gets warmer and I can practice outside, but I'd say my favorite it just the 2bt because it just looks so eye-catching.

Posted:I found Derek's 4bt ttn tutorial pretty clear. In a normal TTN your right hand is behind your left on one beat and in front of it on the next. When your right hand is behind your left, it's also on the bottom, and the motion between its "behind" beat and its "forward" beat is spent bringing it up behind the left poi and letting it swing down in front of it.

The four beat one works roughly the same, but from its "behind" beat it swings up behind the left poi, down behind the left poi (by twisting the hand under your arm), up behind the left poi, and down in front of it. Obviously this is all symmetrical, and hopefully it made some sense.
