Heya,

Does anyone know any decent hybrid moves at all?

I was introduced to hybrids at BJC 2008 and I'd love to learn some more, can't seem to find much info about them anywhere!

any ideas?

muchos love

I don't know any hybrids that aren't decent grin

The obvious would be to go through the 50 or so anti-spin iso hybrids.

Same time, split time, butterfly. Then Hands going butterfly but Poi going same time, then hands going split time Poi going butterfly etc. etc. etc.

Then you have all the cat eye hybrids, use the same formula (Same time, split time, butterfly, butt split time, then go into hand vs Poi hybrids)

basically every driving style vs driving style has its own set of hybrids. They are all pretty decent as far as it goes.

Basically once you get to hybrids, your brain takes off with so many patterns its hard for people to document them all. So just experiment with it.

A great one would be Iso weave / Regular Weave hybrid, split time. Then do it same time, its a great one to learn as well.

Alien jon goes into great deal about hybrids on his channel as well. https://www.youtube.com/user/AlienJon

All hybrids are really just combinations... so just start playing with them.

Cateye/3 petal antispin is fun.. you can do it with the hands in even time, split time whatever... though doesnt make a lot of visual difference since they are polyrhythmic anyway.

Or maybe it does, the tops meeting in even time hands would be a nice effect... I havent actually played with them with light, but I guess it would look nicer.
