Posted:Or, if you're talking about Chain Whip, I also do that
Was thinking about doing it with fire, it would like pretty cool - BUT my form involves several stances where the chain is resting for a while on your arm, so fire down the entire length wouldn't really be possible.
I was thinking of having some sort of one-handled skipping rope (or just long fire rope poi - same thing) and doing some chain whip form, but realised I wouldn't leave with much in the way of an arm
I do a bit of chain whip in my rope dart, but I think all the body wraps get hidden in the darkness if it's just the end on fire.
But skipping on your arse is definitely the way forward

Posted:i love the way the chain moves, and can stay seperated real easy. Everything about it is awsome, most of all the way moves cross over from staff and poi. U can do almost all moves form both styles, depending on the weight, thickness and type of links you use. Though swining a huge thick piece of long chain can be dangerous.
Id recomend rope with weights to beginners. Its not the same thing though.
Throws and 1 handed stuff are also in the mix, but i have no idea about contact moves. Durbs what length,links, and weight do u prefer. And do u cross over alot of contact stuff? Or does that require a heavy chain thats not effective enough?
