I haven't heard specifically of the Florida weave method. However, the "stake and weave" is one method of trellising a row of tomatoes. First you drive a stake between every other plant. Then, you weave twine between and around the stakes 4-6 times, so the tomatoes are supported by twine on either side. Then, all suckers but one below the first fruit cluster are removed. No other suckers are removed above the first cluster.

Here are some articles on other methods of training tomatoes.
