Posted:Ok, i gather most people learn the forward 5-beat first. Next question, WHY did you decided to learn the forward first instead of the reverse?

Posted:reverse here..

why? because I was talking on the phone and pretending I had poi in my hands and realised hey its the backwards 5 beat and it was... therefore no real reason.

Posted:I think most people go for forward first because when you screw up, the poi are heading for your shins as opposed to your head.

Posted:Hmm. 5 beat forward always seems to be "heading for the balls" rather than shins. Then again, I bought a cup and learned the forward first anyways...

Posted:Yeah, im the same, kim!
i find the tutorials on the site a little confusing.. while trying to get the 5 beat forward. i managed to fluently get a 7 beat weave! although the chains do twist around your hands, and when theyre on fire, i guess it would burn hey?
but does anyone have a different version of a tutorial for the foreward one? An idiot proof one perhaps??
