I know that some Maori people can do 4 poi at once (two in each hand). I tried doing 4 in one hand but have too much trouble spacing them out evenly 90 degress apart. I guess it might be like doing a cross in each hand. I have only seen Dangerboy using a cross and I am sure he would be able to do 2 crosses to some degree wink with some practice. Maybe once you can do two crosses you would beable to move onto 4 poi in each hand?The move I tried was the corkscrew action. But I think I will just try 2 in each hand for now. Malcolm

with the four poi.. try to rake your hand like a claw.. fingers apart.. whilst doing this the poi will separate if you want them to regroup then keep your hand like a fist... have fun..

I can do more hula hoops than you! No way! I can do four at once! I can do 6!girl 1 grabs six hoops and spins them round waist..almost falling over with the lack of symetry and flow..Once I was at a party, and a guy came round and asked to borrow everyones fire poi. ok we said...(being nice (but somewhat naieve ppl)) He then proceeded to wave 8 poi around...after a couple of minutes he got them all tangled into a flaming lump which he had to drop. of course all our handles got burned up. Yay for Moreisbetterman...what a hero.pity he couldnt even twirl 2 poi very well...More is not equal to better.Josh

nya nyanyanya nyaaa.I hereby sheepishly state that I do double crosses. My flow and symmetry are all in line, thanks for the concern josh winkHowever, I can't/won't/don't want to do 2 poi, let alone 8. methinks the moves be very different anyway.------------------"she dances in a ring of fire and throws off the challenge with a shrug"

well im reely good at useing 4 poi, 2 in each hand, i tryed 6 last night and couldent keep em seporated enough so i think that for now ill stick to 4. i can do the same moves with 2 poi as 4 poi as 6 poi, 4 just looks the best cos it spreads better.the only move i cant do with any more then 2 poi is the one handed bitterfly, but im working on it.and yes flash fire iz reely good with double crosses, i can bear whitness to that.anyway.keep up the flame grin and have a good spin------------------ladies and gentelmen take my advice, pull down your pants and slide on the ice...
