Drex's Tech Poi Blog #367: Superman barrel rolls

It's impossible to overstate how silly a move this is--performing barrel rolls with a 3-beat superman! Here's the basic idea: take one half of a normal barrel roll and one half of a 2-beat weave and you can get a bit of a barrel roll to work with the superman. It's not a full barrel roll, unfortunately (don't know if that's even possible with a superman), but it is entertaining to try ;) Beware tangles!

Drex's Tech Poi Blog #328: Thinking outside the box with plane bending

Trying to think about plane-bending in a different context than toroids and harmonics--like using them as a way to switch direction on a particular trick. The concept reminds me a bit of Nicky Evers' wavy weaves.

Drex's Tech Poi Blog #263: Inverting the introversion (for realsies!)

Yeah, so I totally missed a step with last week's video on inverting the introversion. There's a bit that feels quite a bit like a barrel roll that comes after performing the introverted weave that adds a whole other layer of complexity to the movement. Here is the full move demoed. Good luck to those of you who opt to take this one on--it's a bear :-P
