Weaves, windmills, and corkscrews are all poi moves which are based on split-time ?same direction? spinning. These three moves are basically the same, except they are in different planes. If you imagine yourself in a box, there is a plane on your right side, one on your left side, one above you, one below you, one behind you, and one in front of you. Weaves are on the left and right planes while windmills are on the front and back planes. Corkscrew is above and below, but sometimes you will need to move your body to avoid the poi.
Split-time : having the poi at opposite sides at any given time. Generally used whenever the poi are following each other.
Corkscrews are closely related to windmills. When attempting corkscrews, make sure your strings are relatively short since you don?t want to be hit by the strings. You should end up doing a basic figure eight?s hand motion while keeping the poi on opposite ends of the circle. To begin, hold both poi in front of you. You should rotate your right wrist clockwise and have your right poi create a circle above your hands (and possibly forearms). When the right poi is facing you, start rotating your left wrist so that your left poi follows the right poi. When the right poi is facing away from you, move it so that it goes under your hands, and have your left poi follow this path. Shortly afterwards, you should see your poi close to the starting position.
