Posted:yo been thinking about this, specific moves have specific thwacks, for example:

Forward 5 beat = Nad Thwack
Reverse 5 beat = Nose Thwack
Reverse btb = Ankle/Eye Thwack
Reverse Butterfly w/w = Back of the Head Thwack
Staff Shotgun = Knee Thwack

any more for any more?

Posted:Nix,

I'm not answering this cos you used that shoddy shotgun term. (Starting to lose faith in a once valuable naming moves thread)

No need, unless of course you own it

Posted:full isolated buzzsaw (with long poi that shouldn't go into a buzzsaw really) - chin thwack.

4bt windmill - temple thwack.

tangled buzzsaw with lots of beats inside and coming out in the same position as you went in but on the other side - inside of elbow thwack (a bit specific but i used to have a permanent bruise here from learning this move).

any contact juggling done by me - ankle thwack (not just limited to my own).

Posted:My inner cynic tells me that this is a thinly guised worst injuries thread. But everyone know's that Mr Nix? lacks the cunning and/or guile for a stunt like that. So, in the spirit of things:
*Don't recall what move it was but that split ring thing on the end of my electroglo poi - nipple ring removing thwack.

Is there a twang table too?

Posted:crossover tangle = double nad thwack.

I've only ever barfed once after being hit in the extraordinary gentlemen, and crossover, in my first month of poi, was why.

Oddly enough, I felt better.
