Posted:I'm finding myself kind of directionless on what to learn next, so I figure hey, I'll ask for opinions.

I'm a noob and I have to take this slow because I'm not exactly the most coordinated person on the planet. The few moves I know: Butterfly, Corkscrew, Crossover, Two Beat Weave, Three Beat Weave.

And looking at that list, wow. I feel kind of bad.

Posted:Archer weave, mexican weave, over the head butterfly, 5 beat weave (it's not as scary as it sounds), 4 beat corkscrew and windmill (followed by matrix move... variation of 4 beat corkscrew), hip reels, shoulder reels... turning with those. And if you can do it same-time, try split-time.

Posted:Spiral wraps were really fun to learn grin hyperloops and orbitals were fun to learn. Flowers, learn them, they are awesome. There is so much more you can do than them than you would believe. Crosser extention, butterfly crosser. Meltdown, wallplane meltdown, btb weave. 2bt waistwrap in front of you, butterfly weave, Pacman Twist smile

Stalls, carryover, buzzsaw, butterfly buzzsaw split and same, and it may sound silly, but same time same direction buzzsaw looks really cool with fire in a same time buzzsaw fountain wink

Extentions, whirling in place, whirling in a circle, over the head spiral wraps

And that should cover you for a long time grin


The only luck is bad luck.

Shut up before I stall my poi up your ass grin

Posted:Butterfly side to side. AKA pacman twist. Kind of a move at first but more of something that helps you learn to move in opposites

Posted:Flowers, stalls/pendulums, being able to turn solidly in various positions, thread the needle and variations, five beat weaves and archer's variations on all your weaves. I think these are hugely powerful things to learn for mobility and transitions.

Posted:everything in reverse, then transitioning between moves - crossover > weave > backwards weave > stall one > butterly...

maybe try thread the needle, behind back, extensions, flowers, isolations, hybrids

Posted:This is something I see a lot with fire: wallplane box opposite "flowers," if you will, they appear to go into a stall on one side, jerk the poi behind them into a split time, (opposite as before) direction boxed flower. I've tried this, haven't perfected it.
