Posted:As advised by the good man, Shawn Fumo (_very_ nice guy by the way), I've decided to take up poi (also contact juggling, but that's a whole other board). ^_~ though I've never seen anyone poi in person (sorry Shawn, furgot to ask. :P ), I'm sure I can learn with everyone's help!

Posted:Greetings to you good person. Well like you i just started poi, so here goes. Concentrate on your weakest hand a lot, use that first when trying new tricks, a mirror can't go wrong you see a lot that you're doing wrong and it's easier to correct it. When stressed out walk away, look at the poi lessons on this web site, fantastic! and listen to these guys they've been a great help. tHanks everyone.take it easy.
