Posted:been playing around with throwing the poi in the air .i read athread here about bringing the poi under the legs from behind,letting go of the handles and then catching it again from the front .it got me thinking ,you start with the poi doin regular circles on the 2 sides of your body left poi goes under left leg ,you let go of the handle and catch it again infront ,and at the same time right hand goes behind the back on your left side and you let go of the handle so the poi comes back to the front right side and catch it again .yikes ! i think i messed up the description again .enjoy ...waiting for your comments .

Posted:There are so many possibilities with throws they would be way too many for me to explain. But if you could "juggle" the poi, throw it and catch it anywhere anytime that would open up a lot of doors. I've made tennis ball handles just so i could practice throws... theres a bunch of stuff you can do. Behind the back release under opposite armpit, 810 spin, catch it. From behind the back weave, release and try to catch it back into a behind the back butterfly. etc etc. I think throws are a lot like wraps because theres a lot of potential yet no one really practices them.------------------[]Dhuong-Vu Truong==== []Dhunky ====[This message has been edited by phunky (edited 20 October 2001).]

Posted:I used to practice juggling 3 poi. I can do it, but it doesn't seem to look very interesting imo. There are a lot of cool releases that can be done with 2 poi though. Hopefully my video that I sent in will be in the compilation video. I you watch that I have a few very cool releases on that video.
