Tell us all about it! We love hearing about our fellow poiers/staffies/misc. toyers succeeding with new things biggrin

It's just hard to keep up with it all sometimes, so if we keep it together you'll be certain to get a little feedback.



here a pat on the back in advance from me

Posted:YAY YAY YAY!

The behind the back FORWARD weave...I can go from left to right to left to right and back again without messing up...but after about the 3rd cross over, BAM. I just need to tidy it up and Practice Practice Practice. You all have no idea how long it's taken me to get this one. I'm a slow learner.

OH...though I DID also get the hyperloop from the weave, on one side, into the buzzsaw, and out on the other side...it's not perfect, but I've got it.

AND...my isolations are much better....but still far from perfect.

*takes a deep breath* biggrin WAIT until MAND SEES!!!

Posted:wavehello Just started spinning a week and two days ago, never done juggling or staff or anything.

Can now do:
3bt
Reverse 3bt (better)
Corkscrew
Some kinda 4bt corkscrew weave
Continuous turning weave untill diizy and fallover ubbloco
Something based on that corkscrew weave but with vertical planes, one infront, one behind the head help
Last night started to get 5bt pretty smooth after trying for several days.

Was most pleased with the corkscrew weaves as I hadn't (and still havn't) seen these done anywhere, just thought they should be possible so tried them. ubbidea biggrin

Poi ROCKS! weavesmiley

Hmm... Didn't mean to sound so bigheaded ubblol
Oh well rolleyes

Posted:BTB weave. Not sure if its forward or reverse.... is it reverse if I'm reverse weaving and I step infront of the poi so they're behind me? Well I just nailed that one, and turning 180 so it goes from one to the other (still sketchy.)

Ok dunno the name for this one:

butterfly on left (1bt)
weave right hand across
weave left hand across
upsidedowny butterfly on right (1bt)
and back again

The guy who told me about it called it an "iffy" but what is the official HOP name?

OMG i need to try 5bt behind the back, thats blatantly well easy non? (Will report back with progress.)

Posted:O M G!

At last

It has arrived....shouts to Oli for making me realise my socks were way to light I have increased and can now isolate!! And not only that.....I've also managed to isolate hyperloops!! WHOOT WHOOOOOOOOOT bounce

You should have seen the smile on my face last night!! It was like this biggrin crossed with this ubbloco on acid. Oh no hang on that was Glasto wink
I also isolated butterfly in and out of time infront and BTB but not very well.

And I don't think I've posted this before so....normal weave then release left and in right for one handed butterfly (can also be thrown under the leg) And, one handed forwards butterfly, release the lowest in my hand, quickly wrap the other on my thigh and then catch the first back in the same hand to go into reverse one handed butterfly

Posted:glastonbury was definately a place for learning (ahem... and stealing) moves! thanks to oli for airwrap wristwraps among other ideas, mike for horizontal hyperloop ideas (i'm still working on the juggling stalls variations), a random guy for explaining 531 to me and at some point oli kev and i had fun playing with a mixed bag of under the leg wirst, arm and leg wraps. Garthy, i'm still trying to sort out my exits for the plane changing hyperloops though. wink

i've probably learn't some other stuff at since i last posted on this thread (like contact ball butterflies) but can't remember what... wink
