Messing around with BTB stuff. I really feel like I need to learn btb weave and eventually wallplane/waistwrap weave. I've watched the tuts, it's just really hard for me. (probably the hardest thing I've tried to learn thus far)

Keep going for it, Just remember not to try catching the sticks. (I had a problem starting out with that due to my 'Chucking habits)

 

Anyways, Working on cleaning my BTB waistwrap Butterfly Weave, Incorperating body hitting with wraps, Wrap combos in general, String Manips. Etc,

 

Aslo working on Antispin... I cant antispin worth crap. >.<

After watching sparrow's tut once more and working on it for a bit, I've almost got it. The few times I did get it, it felt like a 2 beat and not a 3 beat. I need to get that extra beat in there.

 

Learned butterfly weave fountain.

 

Working on reverse 5 beat, I have to stick my arms straight out and slightly up to keep from hitting myself.

And sock poi airwraps

 

In the works:

BTB 5bt weave

5bt reverse weave (SO CLOSE!)

if you can do regular flowers, try learning flowers in every single combination.

 

This should be easy if you have proper plane control. Antispin may take a bit of work though.

 

Remember your directions.

 

Four petal flower/lockout types 12/3/6/9 o'clock flowers

arms: forward/poi: forwards = regular flower

arms: reverse/poi: reverse = reverse flower

arms: reverse/poi: forward = forward antispin flower

arms: forward/poi: reverse = reverse antispin flower

arms: butterfly/poi: butterfly = butterfly flower

arms: reverse butterfly/poi: reverse butterfly = reverse butterfly flower

arms: butterfly/poi: reverse butterfly = butterfly antispin flower

arms: reverse butterfly/poi: butterfly = butterfly antispin flower

arms: forward/poi: butterfly = goofy butterfly flower

arms: reverse/poi: butterfly = reverse goofy butterfly flower

arms: butterfly/poi: forward = goofy flower (what people on HoP call it)

arms: butterfly/poi:reverse = reverse goofy flower

arms: forward/poi: reverse butterfly = goofy reverse butterfly flower

arms: reverse/poi: reverse butterfly = reverse goofy reverse butterfly flower

arms: reverse butterfly/poi: forward = goofy flower with reverse butterfly arms

arms: reverse butterfly/poi: reverse = reverse goofy flower with reverse butterfly arms

 

The "names" that differentiate flowers get confusing and ridiculous (which is why i hate naming poi moves), add in extra petals and it's a fucking nightmare.

 

The names aren't important though, just learn the four directions you can spin your poi in: forward, reverse, butterfly, and reverse butterfly - match those with the four directions your arms can go: forward, reverse, butterfly, and reverse butterfly.

 

There's 16 combinations.

 

That's all you need to know.
