LORQ:TECH #47: ~Tether and Throws Flow~

10 Apr

This is the best 2 poi I’ve caught on film so far.
Music: “Oakland Rope” by Claude VonStroke ft. Fox & Py

In addition to lots of gunsling wrist-wraps, continuous arm rolls, throws,
and all that stuff combined, you get:

0:00- Tether manip on top petal of 2-Petal Vertical Prospin (Underhand)
0:23- Tether manip on top petal of 2-Petal Vertical Prospin (Overhand)
0:46- Gunsling wrist-wraps to Together-time Same-direction 1-Petal Inspin (Petal pointing left)
1:06- Gunsling wrist-wrap vs. continuous contact roll
2:55- 4-Petal Diamond Antispin throw (over top, extension at bottom) vs. 2-Petal Horizontal Prospin.
3:01- 4-Petal Diamond Antispin vs. no-beat toss
4:48- gunsling wrist-wrap (2 versions) vs. 2-beat reels (underneath shoulder and above shoulder).

Did I mention Slow-Motion!

Woot!

TUTORIAL: ~Gunsling Wrist-Wraps~

6 Apr

Due to Popular Request: a Tutorial on the tether manipulations found in my last video “Gunsling Wrist-Wraps.”

“Slide up the tether, wrap, move to the other side of the body, and unwrap.”

Music: “Nude” (Justin Martin Remix).

LORQ:TECH #46: ~Gunsling Wrist-Wraps~

25 Mar

2 Poi Dopeness. Illusional tether manipulations that pinch like a gunslinger, then do an extra wrap (twist) around the wrist before changing sides of the arm and unwrapping. It took a while to get them clean, but they look really good when done well.

LORQ:TECH #45: ~Isolation vs. Vertical Cateye (2 Hoops 1 Hand)~

25 Mar

Found this manip that’s a lot like one Kyle Johnson posted. Liz Knights had a go at it (and got it!) and here it is after a bit of practice. Check it out!

 

LORQ:TECH #44: ~Arm Circle Throws~

25 Mar

Illusional throws using an arm circle between throw and catch (Keith-y Throws remixed), plus a horizontal throw in the middle of a plane-bendy antibend pattern.

Curt Carlyle wants to call them “Faith Throws.” What do you think?

 

LORQ:TECH #43: ~Paid To Practice (POI)~

6 Mar

Tosses, Contact, and Tether Manipulations

In Oregon you can’t pump your own gasoline! I get to! It’s my job! Inbetween cars I’m permitted to dance and juggle. I play my music and worship the speakers. I get paid to practice and I pay rent. Poi… Dance… Juggle… Practice… at work. The job isn’t always pleasant. There are quite rude people in the world (turns out I’m a person). So there you have it. Practicing and committing to pumping the positive out to the people, one fill-up and dance at a time.

LORQ:TECH #42: ~Tether Contact Rolls (One-Poi-Two-Hands)~

18 Feb

Only having one long poi sure has encouraged me to practice all those string tricks I’ve been loving…

 

LORQ:FLOW #9: ~Glow Trails Flow Jam~

20 Jan

After my last video Luke Carroll requested some trails-y footage of a flow jam.  So I did.

Lots of sweet patterns, all with ‘trails’ or ‘tracers’

LORQ:TECH #41 ~9 Flower Families! (with Trails)~

18 Jan

One hybrid is used to show 9 different planar relationships of the poi to the hands (With Glow Trails! Check it out!)

My favorites (in order) are @2:03, 1:25… okay the toroid at 0:50 looks sweet with the trails too.
