Posted:This space is for all those funksters busy improving their technique by learning new moves - made-up or traditional.



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:I figured out how to tangle on the right outside my arms then bring the tangle into buzzsaw and then throw the poi outside my arms on the left and it always comes seamlessly undone. I can do just a buzzsaw tangle, however this version <always> comes undone. And I figured out hyperloop butterflys, the trick is to go forwards butterfly and buzzsaw them for half a beat till the strings tangle then stand behind it again, they untangle everytime. I linked both of these tangles togeather with a bounce wrap on one arm yesterday.

dont make peoples heads turn, give them whiplash.

Posted:i just got hyperloops too!! but i can only do them with socks at the moment, that still counts though, doesn't it?

also have unlocked the uh 5bt weave, clockwise 4 bt corkscrew (so much harder than counterclockwise for me for some reason), and "the matrix move," for which i clearly have to build up lower back and abdominal strength to do repeatedly. can only do that one counterclockwise so far. also, antispin flowers. ubblove

been a productive month.


taken out of context i must seem so strange

*Not looked at a map yet*

I just learned to take my 3btweave under my right leg , round the back, and back from under my left leg... I have to make a mighty hop/leap halfway through though, think I need to shorten my strings for that one! smile

A hyperloop if you're turning. If you're doing it in front of you there's no need to turn, get keep your hands still once they've tangled and they should pop undone on their own - that's an airwrap.


i cant do airwraps, they just wont work. the poi just tangle up. ill ahve to look at more vids of one ... anyone got a good one that shows the process of doing an airwrap?

Posted:I'm happy I just learned the normal "hyperloop buzzsaw" (tangler in yo-yo terms) with two dead yo-yos. I had trouble learning it with my sock poi, but I suppose that's because they are normal socks that have some thickness to them. Using string seemed easier since you could get 4 or 5 complete revolutions just from having your hands pefectly still (the socks would die out way quicker because of how the trick twists things up).

But now I finally figured out how to keep the thing going using hand motions (left hand keeps the left poi going, right keeps the right one going), so that is really fun. I've kept it going maybe 10-15 revolutions now before exiting.

And that illustration I posted earlier is what I learned the basic air wrap from. Keep in mind that they should both be slightly off angle from the wall plane and that they should start to wrap above your hands. Then when gravity pulls it downward, it'll start to unwrap when it is below your hands (that change of axis is what makes the trick work).

Now I gotta try doing hyperloop buzzsaw in the other direction (forward) and the harder variations. Fun stuff!

Posted:HIya all, this is the first time I've posted on the poi section of HOP, I have been a staff / dual staff / fans twirler for ages and only dared to pick up poi in January! anyways, I've spent a heap of time practicing these last few weeks...and yay, I'm a poi addict too now biggrin
Latest learnings: have figured out the 7 beat weave, its a little uneven, so need to practice it more, but I don't tangle like I did to begin with... ooh, and now am trying to learn the standard weave btb. Weeeeeee! ubbrollsmile


What if I should fall right through the centre of the Earth and come out the other side where people walk upside-down?!

Well my first HOP post, and my new move is...*drumroll*

The Behind The Back 5 Beat Forward Weave. *ta-da*

I've been working on cleaning up my BTB5BtRevWeave, and today I cracked the Forward, and it's clean enough I'm turning between the two. So thought I'd post...

Posted:it's not really new...



i'm starting to focus on kicks and slaps (i think sum1 reffered to it as bodypopping - correct me if i'm wrong - okay i'm wrong!)



i've got dead stalls and wraps tapped nicely... but have never really worked with kicks, slaps and bounces.



It's quite a bit of fun!
