just want to say thanks to Nigel for being the one who first introduced
me to poi many years ago.
I met Nigel whilst I was juggling
in the arts centre. He was a very nice and friendly person. He was one
of those people who could give you the energy and confidence to achieve
anything. I showed him some juggling and he showed me poi. This web site
certainly would not be here without his inspiration
Below is a picture of Nigel
in Japan teaching some people new poi moves. Thank you Mitsuaki for the
Sadly Nigels life was taken
in December of 1999. And I feel I have to say to him again
"Thanks Nigel for the gift you
passed onto me "
His life was so giving and special.
He is very much sadly missed both
here in New Zealand and Japan.
