Posted:Can anyone explain, or point out a video that explains the concept of the 8-Step CAPs, I'm not really sure what's going on. I saw a sweet video of a bunch of variations and I think there's a basic easy to understand concept there, but I don't know what it is. Thanks. EDITED_BY: Lye (1315797824)

Posted:Well, that's the weird thing about the pattern--technically they move at different speeds--both radial and linear velocity--but they have the same angular momentum. Incidentally, the move is much harder, and less smooth for the transitions he suggests, if you don't have your poi reeled in to the proportions Charlie suggests at the beginning of his 9 square series (1/2 arm length).
You do a cap at each of the four directions going in a circle. A cap to the left, a cap down a cap right and then a cap up. The transitions are in order to perform the caps. I just did not understand how to understand them until i was riding home on my bike one day and it clicked. Now all the variations...
