Just a fun thread. describe a move, being as descriptive or vague as you wish to be, and if applicable 'name the move' above your post.

I'm new as far as how many moves I know so I'll hope someone more skilled than me can get this going smile

Have fun!

MNS: True actually, on both counts.

So let us try going back on-topic:

Arms crossed, poi move in circles, wheel plane. Go.

'We're all mad here. I'm mad, you're mad." [said the Cat.]
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "Or you wouldn't have come here."

Just came up with a silly forward 1.5 variation where one hand is doing a 3 bt weave and the other is always just penduluming back and forth on alternating sides of the body. I opt for calling it "saving the cheerleader", but I welcome names that aren't stupid, too tongue2

Wouldn't cateye technically have 2 petals? Like how in other antispin flowers: 3 beats creates 4 petals, 2 beats creates 3 petals, etc... In cateye the petals aren't "loops" per say, but just fo consistancy's sake, I'd rather think of it as 2 petals instead of 0 tongue2

If that tickles your fancy.

But a "petal" is a visual term, rather than a technical term.

You can call it twelve tiny monkeys doing backflips on minibikes if you really like, doesn't bother me.


I understand saving the cheerleader, btw. And I like the name... its a stupid name, but its a stupid looking move, too, so it suits!

I don't know what move he's talking about. I personally like a lot of 1.5's. They're also a good transition and reverse pendulum weaves look awesome with fire grin

"saving the cheerleader" is so-called because it's usually followed by a move called "saving the world"... which I haven't invented yet.

You just reminded of me of one time my family was in a sports bar. And one of the waitresses looked exactly like the cheerleader. And my mom whispered "Save the cheerleader." I was holding in laughter and my dad was confused.

ok i have a move that i have no idea what the name of it is it is a 3 beat but on the last beat on each side on that side you bring that arm back and then back into 3 beat so when you do the third beat your arm is extended behind your right side when on the right and then when you goto the left side you bring your left arm back on the last beat it is similar to a lock out take out 3 beat weave

I think I know what you mean.

I do a move where as I'm doing a reverse 3-beat weave, on the beat where you bring your arm back across (either/both arms) you throw it over your shoulder so it comes up and over and goes back into a weave pattern.

Will have to do a video at some point so people get what I mean.

I'm guessing it's similar to what Zelenkia did in his video but instead of bringing that arm up behind the head you bring it straight back so that your arm is extended behind you.

Is that correct?

That's what I thought. I played with it a bit after that post, not entirely sure how it actually looks though as I don't really have a mirror large enough to watch myself spin.

My firend, I believe that would just be called a 3bt weave. You open up kind of like you're about to turn, but I'd just say a 3bt weave. It wouldn't really be a lockout unless you let them make a beat or more while taken apart because they are never taken out of their weaving pattern in that video.

Now my conclusion, 3bt weave. Maybe a kind of extended 3bt at most.

Yeah, I'd say linear extension 3bt. Not that it isn't actually kind of interesting.

What is it that you're calling a linear extention, Sister Eleven?

Same thing's called a linear extension in Encyclo-poi-dia 2 and most places I've seen the term: moving the hand in a straight line with the direction of the poi. The result is an elliptical shape two poi lengths wide.

i say just a 3bt weave doing an extension while it is on either side. When I was new to poi i would open up my poi on the side of my weave and make an extra beat.

Also Good definition of linear extension sisters eleven

He does not do a linear extension though. A linear extension s just moving your hand up and down with the poi, he's moving his hands in a circle.

That's why I say extension not linear extension.

I find linear extensions are hard to incorporate and only works well (with my experience) with wallplane flowers and some geometric patterns
