This move requires two things, the ability to perform the behind the back butterfly, and short chains (or ones that have been choked up on). Begin this move with a reverse butterfly. Entering this move is similar to the way you enter the behind the back butterfly, except that at the point immediately before the poi meet up at the bottom of the swing (towards the ground) begin to bring the poi between your legs while leaning forward and drawing your arms through your legs and horizontal. Once the poi are behind your back simply raise your right hand higher than your left as you would with the behind the back butterfly. When the top of the swing begins to fall to the side you may need to let your right hand slightly cross over the left hand in order to smoothly keep the swing continuing. Just as we entered into the behind the back we will use this same action when exiting. As the poi begin to join at the bottom of the swing bring you hands side by side and draw them back through your legs and towards the front of your body. Re-enter the reverse butterfly and continue on with the rest of your routine.
