Posted:yay woot for all you peoples who are incorporating other art into firetwirling! bellydancing or kendo-headwacking, you peepulz keep it fresh! they are a good bet when you grow weary of staff/poi or have too many intact bones.

that said, there's been many a way-sick firetwirler from these boards who have reached the edge, taken a crap on it, then moved on.
do yas wanna make fire nunchaku with one fire end or two? perhaps you can benefit from M@tt's foray into the world of firey chuks

I am not held responsible for saying "I am not held responsible for" cos it's not really my responsibility to respond so.
CAUTION: don't taboggan with shorts on.

Posted:I did do some work on combat staff moves.

Combat staff is sharp quick movements unlike the flowing movements of juggling staff. Best done with a partner I recon but nobody wanted to play with me (scared).

I put down a few combat staff moves then I learnt this one handed cartwheel move where you use the end of the staff instead of the hand. It looked good but when I was showing everyone, I got a little over enthusiastic and the staff bent and I hit the floor. Life sux.

i wanna do combat staff cause I wanna be darth maul. I wanna a light sabre.

Posted:you know we already did a posting on fire nunchucks...one moment, search for you I will. Only a true jedi can weild the power of the search engine... http://www.homeofpoi.com/ubbcgi/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=7;t=000529

So anyways, I guess nobody said how to make them. just take a pair on nunchucks and attach a wick on tghe ends of them. I drill a couple holes through the end (on four inches and on one inch from the end, then wrap a peice of cotton towel around it, then put solid wire through the holes and twist it up, and you have a wick, I use one on each end, but make sure oyu have a long enough chuck, I make my own chucks too, so I can control the dimensions.
