The 'Center of Rotation' (CoR) of one of the poi stays in time with the head of the other poi. This means that one poi is effectively orbiting the other like a satellite. This example has 3-petal antispin orbiting a standard spin.

Using poi no longer than hand-to-shoulder length, you can execute it in front wall plane. For the standard spin hand, find a sweet-spot somewhere between the solar plexus and chest, placed on your body's center line. You may even need to move it off center towards the opposite shoulder a bit. The anti-spine poi plane should be a little farther forward. This allows your standard spin poi to pass in between your opposite poi and the arm spinning it. This is the same type of spacing Nick Woolsey describes for an antispin-weave in his video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k85esu...

If Your poi are less than half the length of your arm, then you can turn from the above mentioned wall plane method, into a wheel plane version where the standard spin is done in a buzzsaw (inverted) plane.
