Posted:i used to play hacky sack alot, for those who dont know it, small bean bag u keep in the air using anything but ur hands. so ive encoperated that into my tricks, like rolling down one arm behind my head to the other, using my feet and knees etc in some tricks, something i cant do in poi, but theres a hell of a lot u can do in poi that u cant do with a stick, so either way theresa a benifit, its whats suits the individual basicaly
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.
