Posted:Not at all - the more the merrier! If there's one thing I have noticed about poi and fire arts it's the total lack of ageism.I only wish I had discovered fire poi at a younger age------------------"The tincture of night began to suffuse the soup of the afternoon. He considered the sentence, and found it good. He liked 'tincture' particularly. Tincture. Tincture. It was a distinguished word, and pleasantly countered by the flatness of 'soup'. The soup of the afternoon. Yes. In which may be found the croutons of teatime."

---------------------With a bit of luck, his life was ruined; always thinking that just behind some narrow door, in his favourite bars, men in red woolen suits are getting incredible kicks from things he'll never know.

Posted:We were all 12 once, then grow up, go to college, get jobs, and then wish life was as simple now as when we were 12...Being young means more time to practice poi. Bonus!Dom,Only slightly jealous of those with time on their hands!Oh, and there's a thread here with loads of people showing off how young they are.

Posted:Hey, Actually, there are quite a few of us young spinners
Non-Https Image Link
. I'm fifteen and have been spinning for a few months, there are some that are younger than me but I think you are the youngest on the board! Anyways, there are some young spinners, but we're rare so that makes it even more special! I posted something about this before search for "high school spinning" if you wanna see it.Good luck and welcome!Chris

Posted:Like everyone else, it's nice to know there's someone else that's young. For me and some others, it's nice know that we're not the only people who are under17 yrs old.To someone who said that it's easier and more flexibility at 12/13? Not too true for me...I'm 13 and I am horrible...except for the parts of breakdancing which are involved.

Posted:I think it's gr8 that people start so early. Im only 15, but i still wish i had started poi earlier(ive been doing it for a few months) Just think how kool it is to be twelve and spinning: your friends will b so totally impressed (my friends dont know i spin), and you'll be a total babe/ guy magnet when you're older!! Besides that, its an awesom thing to do, no matter what age!!Peace out------------------Coles
