This move is a variation on the Butterfly.
So to start begin doing the butterfly.
Slide one hand down the other arm as the Poi reach their peak, ie. begin sliding one as they pass above your head.
Alternate between sliding your left and right hands.

This is a neat move when practicing but when performing to an audience sometimes this move just looks like a sloppy butterfuly in the dark.

Finally Got it just now XD. thanx for the video, it helped alot. Ive noticed that the reverse seems to be more useful though in the vids that ive watched, so now im gonna go watch that. shouldnt be too hard now that i have a general feel for the push/pull motions XD.

I can't figure out the timing of this for the life of me. I can get one hand out, but then not the other.

the one tutorial i have already seen on this taught me to think of this move as "pulling down ur shirt sleeves. its good to think theres something in the crease of your elbow that you are pushing away from your body, alternating arms in front on whichever swing you happen to be on. dono if that makes sense but helps me to grasp it.

I think I got them, although not the most visually impressive move it really is good for improving coordination

Been trying to figure this out for months. After this vid, it clicked -- I think I am over-exaggerating swinging the upward-moving hand towards the outside, but at least Im not crashing the Poi into each other every time. So thanks!
