I got NO clue what you're talking about, Richee... any pictures or videos available?
Reminds me of my first approach to Tai Chi:
(...) caress and separate, turn to the left, sit back monkey, push forwards, turn to the right, hands back to back, float down to the centre, lift hands, cheese squeeze (...)

Posted: He's just stringing together a series of individual moves together in a particular path. It makes for a rather complex combination exercise.
Take the part I pointed out above. Spin a forward weave and bring it into wallplane. I dont think the extension is necessary here, but it probably does look pretty. Do a horizontal stall with one poi and have it fall into the path of the other so that you immediately transition into an infinite hyperloop. Next, twist the hyperloop and insert your hands into the path of the poi so that they wrap and reverse. As they unwind the hyperloop, you've just done a move Rovo calls the Wind-Up. (very fun move). The next step is to immediately try and get the reverse weaving poi to catch on your elbow or knee and then kind of slip past. It causes the the poi to shoot forward (aka Shot).
Its about there that I lose the train of thought. But that's only because Im not versed enough in the 5 moves that follow the Shot.
The last section "Bidirectional", Richee is just stating to do the same starting from the opposite direction/side.
and yes, you did say that! Course, I have no idea if you were sober at the time. ;P
