Posted:I've been working on a lot of contact poi, foot poi, and even some foot contact poi recently. This includes the halo (with one poi), reverse fishtails, inverted fishtails, poi kickups, foot fishtails and kickups into hand fishtails.. all with poi..

Playing with some new catches and throws has been good fun. Got btb-throw to bth-catch down quite well.. playing with some other plane-change throws as well as just trying to get the hang of throwing different types of throw with each hand, simultaneously.

using airwraps to change plane is a pretty crazy field, but its good fun.

and forever expanding my knowledge of plane-changey-ness.. thats awesome..


I'm feeling somewhat inclined to stick up a foot poi demonstration video. not quite a how-to video, but something that'll help. I've finally got my video camera back, so time to start filming tongue2

Posted:I got some really nice transitions. After opening up utl movement for myself I just gained a whole new level of flow grin

I also figured out that I can do an orbital from a meltdown by in the middle of it, the one that's behind me goes under my legs (oh yeah) and tangles with the one in front and I pull. And BAM! instant crowd pleaser. Told my girlfriend about it, using explanations of the orbital because she doesn't know the names, and she told me never to do that with fire, she needs my junk lol2

Also a combo combining utl with the uta crosser where the hand at the bottom goes utl from the front, cross to the back from the side, and back utl from the back that time.

I've recently found a new level of flow for me around the time I got my girlfriend, I have a theory that she cleared my mind making me better. (possibly good thread topic) Also I've been using a lot more stalls, crossers, turns, and utl things than before.

Posted:In artspeak, negative space with respect to a figure or figures is the space around those figures, all the area on the canvas they do not occupy (often with the emphasis being the part of it immediately surrounding the figure). I imagine it would apply to utl/inverted/under arm stuff, though I suppose only Leo can clarify for sure what he means by it.

Posted:In poi and juggling in general negative space refers to making a hole using your body and/or props and then manipulating that hole or sticking something through the hole.

For example extend one arm forwards and stall the other poi head on that arm and then you just have made a hole with your poi and arm, you can then pass the other poi through that hole or stick your leg or other body part through the hole or whatever you can imagine. Holes can be created with the whole body (arms, foot, legs, shoulder, neck, etc.) and even the poi by themselves can be headlocked to create a hole.

Posted:After watching Poiboys tech blogs, I got inspired to learn split time isolation/antispin hybrid. It's aweseome.

Same as isolation/extention hybrid but in butterfly. So Isolating one poi, and then other hand following the head of the other poi to make the antispin... It's teh fun.

Posted:Originally Posted By: SpinnerofDetroitOr do you mean like a trifoil-isolations hybrid with hands in same time?

No idea what that is tongue2

Basicly, if you think of standard isolation/extention hybrid where the extention hand follows the head of the isolated poi which is split time same direction. It's basicly that, but poi in opposites. So hands are moving same direction, well the 1 that would be doing extention, with poi in opposites.

I suppose the easiest way of describing it is if you think of doing a triuetra, the hand that would be doing the extention is isolated, and instead of 3 petals, you do 4, well, you could do 3 if you wanted.

So left hand isolated, right hand following the head of left hand with the poi spinning opposite for the antispin.... If that makes sense.

Posted:I'm being thick (looked at the video yesterday and posted last night when at work where youtube and everything else is blocked (hence all the stupid paint pictures).

I don't have that one down yet.

This is what I have recently learned




I guess that's an easier way to talk about it without all the mumbojumbo from before tongue2

Oh and if your looking for new poi, I highly recomend these, they are what I first bought and still use them every day nearly. They are sterdy material with no stretch, but soft on the skin, and for stuff like orbitals and that, when they have been worn in, they can spin for ages (not quite as long as swivels, but more than most socks i have played with). Plus if you have glow balls or something you can put them in and they will shine through.

So left hand isolate, right hand antispin, right hand following left poi head, yea?

Posted:Oooh, Nevisoul Prayer Hand thingy, by far my favourite name for it ever in the history of ever. I learned to go everywhere with it, I love that move. I also learned to go everywhere with the huggie isolation over the head thing. Except it's not always over the head anymore for me tongue2 I also learned to add extra beats to it like a 4bt windmill, but it gets rid of a lot of the beauty I think.

Also, try butterfly beatswitches, they look really cool smile

Posted:Already tried the butterfly beatswitches, split- and together-time. They are creamy.

Can you break down the antispin 4x4 in description? I was honestly racking my brain over this one for the longest time, and I never could get a version below five beats and figured fewer couldn't really be done. (Actually, I forget how I managed to make it five beats. Kind of a weird number in retrospect.)

Posted:I haven't really dwelved into the antispin 4x4 fountain whole-heartedly, but from what I've played around with the idea, I'm beginning to think it would be a lot like two antispin weaves stuck together. You know, like how the original 4x4 is just two 2-beat weaves stuck together with one of the transitions being behind the head. I don't even know if it's fully possible, but if it is, it might be a lot like that except with anti-spin weaves.

The way is came up to this conclusion was through buzzsaw fountains. It's easy to do a antispin buzzsaw fountain where both poi do four beats. The only difference between a buzzsaw fountain and a regular one (aside from the poi being inside your arms) is that in a regular one the hands go through a weaving motion. Winding on one side, opening to neutral in the middle, winding the other hand on top the on the other side, and the opening to neutral again in the middle. there is ofcourse the factor of them going behind your head, but I think that can come later once it's been figured out how to do it in general.

And because the poi are going split-time while the hands are going same-time, it automatically follows that one poi has the downbeats when the arm is on a horizontal or vertical wallplane-axis (down, left, up and right), while the other poi has the beats in between those on the diagonal lines on the wallplane. Or you could think of it as the placing of the petals in the fountain pattern. One poi is doing a 5-petal flower pointing down, the other is doing the same pointing up, mounting up to a symmetrical 10-petal flower.

So, going from those ideas and trying t figure how it would work out, I'm finding that the way one hand has to dodge the other poi in certain places feels a lot like the antispin weave, with which I'm totally not comfortable yet.

But all this is mostly me just brainstorming, and I could be horribly wrong on all of this (If I find out that's the case, I'll correct myself.. And anyone else is free to do so aswell.). I too would like to hear if you managed to get the 4x4 antispin fountain in a much simpler form than what I've been runnning into, SoD. It would be very much releaving if you did, lol..
