Posted:Can anyone explain EXACTLY what a wrap is...I read and read and read the lists of amazing sounding wraps, but *cough cough* I just dont get it.Is the chain of the poi actually "winding" around your wrist, for example.???Or is a wrap just a way of explaining how your arms/hands/wrists are moving in relationship to each other??? Because if this is so, then I think I am actually doing some of these moves already, ie, going from forward to reverse weave in a 180 degree turn.I would REALLY love to learn how to go from left to right to left doing a butterfly, say.

Posted:hey there,a wrap is, and i think it is in the glossary of terms, when the chain wraps around a body part and the poi hits the body and then the poi reverses direction. there are also non-reversing wraps where the chain wraps and unwraps without changing its direction. hope that helped...

anyone got a light?

Posted:quote:I guess then, wraps are out of the question for fire pois?!~ nah, you just have to be a bit braver and more confident when doing wraps with fire. Other than that all wraps you can do with glowsticks you can do with fire.

If you use steelwool for fire you're probably making sparkly poi. Look up sparkle poi in the archives and you'll find many many threads on how to make them and experiences using them.

Posted:you CAN do body wraps with fire
just gotta be careful

i wear tough jeans (denim) and quickly wrap the fire poi around my leg to change directions

its easier for me to do butterfly from swinging both poi forward, then wrapping ONE on my leg, so they are both diff directions

then i throw one over my head on the upper beat, and i face left 90 degrees and i'm in the butterfly

i can do it pretty good, and it never lights me on fire, can't even feel the heat.

just gotta get brave, practice wraps a LOT before you even try them lit!
