Someone in the "I just learned a new advanced move/combo" mentioned barrel rolls.

What are they?

I found a thread on a butterfly version, but I can not actually follow what the basic move is. Search seems to be unhelpful also, at least, a thread explicitly about them does not show up on the first three pages of a search.

So ya, anyone able to answer or have I opened a can of worms?

I'm not entirely sure, but I believe barrel roll is an inverted weave, try searching for inversions & you may have more luck.

A barrel roll is inverted, but it's not an inverted weave...

It's basically an isolated buzzsaw with your arms crossed.

Take an isolated buzzsaw and cross your arms so your forearms are almost pushing the opposite poi around. That's a barrel roll, it's usually used as an inversion for example in an inverted weave or just doing interesting things with...

Thanks for the answers.

Time to go back to isos I guess. Because this sounds cool....
