Posted:to me a person should be able to spin beaming poi without a problem before switching to fire. the weight difference between glowsticks and fire is alot unless you use about 5-6 glowsticks on each chain. also you can make some chains and spin weighted tennis balls for a while. basically when you dont hit yourself is when you can start fire.

you can't have a war against terrorism because war IS terrorism.it's not about worshipping fire. its about making the fire want to worship you.

Posted:Get a pair of fire poi and DON'T light them. Just twirl them until you feel very comfortable with them. THEN light them.

Though finding a veteran is always better.

Sometimes people forget that you can twirl kevlar without lighting it.


Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Posted:You are the only one who can tell when you are ready to spin fire. "Search your heart, and you will find the answer".

Remember that the wicks get heavier, when you soak them in fuel...
That is a question I ponder on.

Shall I just dip the wicks, or really soak them all the way through?
