Drex's Tech Poi Blog #351: Thumb led meteor and 3 poi weaves

When I did my tutorial on 3 poi weaves a couple weeks ago, I thought the waistwrap would be switching between thumb led and poi led, but at Wildfire I was shown it's much easier to keep the move in thumb led when making this turn. It feels a little awkward to me, but makes up for it in making the move smoother overall and this effect really comes across in the 360 degree turns you do with it.

Drex's Tech Poi Blog #350: 3 and 4 beat Superman weaves

Last weekend at Wildfire I taught at 3-poi class that essentially turned into a skill share and one of the cooler things I saw during said skill share was Noel showing us how to do a 3-beat weave with a superman. It's not hard to get there and it sets up both the possibility of doing the weave as an atomic as well as a 4-beat variant. I don't know if a 5-beat is possible, but it would sure be a challenge!

Drex's Tech Poi Blog #348: 3-poi spiral wraps

Following up from my video last week, taking that meteor spiral wrap and applying it to a three-poi environment. Ironically, I find this easier to do than the meteor version, but it does require a lot of work to understand the ins and outs of the 2-beats that lead up to it. Here are a few tips for getting there.

Drex's Tech Poi Blog #343: 3 poi triquetra vs pendulum

One of the most frustrating moves I've ever attempted: performing triquetra vs pendulum with both a handle to handle and handle to poi relationship by performing it as a three poi move. I'm straight up not gonna lie: this one is not very clean right now but it's the first thing I've found with 3 poi that I've really dug the idea of. See if this kindles any ideas in your own heads!
