Posted:you know ...its really amazes me sometimes when you leave the place you've always been andg o somewhere new, not forgetting your poi or fire of course!, and interacting with others who've been doing things longer or better than you, and through some reason reason, maybe the change of place maybe the new friends you met, your own skill improves dramatically and you find yourself doing tricks that you never even though possible for you.Its exillarating in the least and highly recommended!

Posted:The experience of twirling with new people, combined with the excitement and openness of a new place is sure to imbue your spinning with renewed vigour and creativity.Translation : Indeed!I've popped up to Leeds a couple of times recently and met a couple of excellent poi people who helped me heap loads!

Posted:i know that i have learned a ton of new poi moves since i moved from seattle to hilo. i think a major part of it though is that hilo is pretty boring and i got in the habit of twirling to amuse myself and pass the time.

Posted:I learnt some wicked new double staff moves in the front room of someones house on Saturday afternoon. I think I was more confident because, despite the fact that i was only practising, I was getting lots of encouragement from various people gathered there. Encouragement I dont usually get as at home I practise on my own.
