alot of ppl make tenis ball practise poi etc, ive found that a shot glass of perl barely in a loose fabic bag is good as it doesnt hurt so much when you do bash yourself in the face. ive found the free lessons here on hop are good (thats how i learnt most about poi)

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

Hello mate,

There is a "poi in the park" in huddersfield on (I believe) the 19th. Check out the thread in the events section.

Tempest, myself and I think NYC will be there, and we should be able to help you loads.

And we've got HUGE firetoys to play with

Jo.

PS. get in touch with Tempest for directions etc.

Educate yourself in the Hazards of Fire Breathing STAY SAFE!

You could also try the meet others section at the top as it also has a box to help you find people who are willing to teach in your area.

ok, this makes about 5 of us in the manchester area wanting to poi and practice so lets do it and learn off eachother.

i'm away for the next 6 weeks but well up to plan a poi in the park in manchester then... otherwise, put a thread on the events and i'm sure everyone in manchester / cheshire will see it.

Doesnt seem to be any lessons up here (too far north of watford y'know!) but I've heard via hop there is juggling club at manchester uni which i'll be going to in a few weeks.

There's is so enough of us to get soemthing happening. count me in
