Posted:HELLO!! I'd like to introduce myself to my newfound family. I admit that I have not read the message board much at all. Just wanted to get my first post out there, and express my newfound love of this art. I'm a poser to say the best. However, now that I seen how far I have come and how FAR I have to go. I'm very excited. This is what I've been looking for. I look forward to talking with you all and hope that someday I will have something to bring or offer. Thanks in advance for any help and advice. I'm off to read some more!!

Posted:To be honest I didn't even know what it(Poi) was called until two days ago. I've been "messing" around now for about a month. I had no way of knowing how fast or slow I was learnig because there isn't anyone around here to gauge from. Most of the skills are coming along well. I'm finding that my left hand is in it's own world. By far the weave has been my killer. Aside from the hole in my finger, the laceration on my head, and the blue shins, I'm LOVING every step of the way. However, to me, that seems like a right of passage

Posted:That sounds like a pretty impressive list of injuries, but persevere with moves like the weave.Its really fundamental but when it finally clicks, loads of things just fall into place. good luck,

Posted:WelcomeI havn't been on the message board long, But since I have been, I know how to do certain moves better, and it gets me visualizing what I can be doing. I've learned alot already from this board. And the weave was my worst too. I got it down pat now though. It took me about 2 weeks to learn it,Right after I did learn it,in only one week I learned 7 new moves and how to make them all combine together.Good Luck!P.S. Pele I thought the same thing

Posted:I am also new to this form, and though I found this site through various links (thanks to the originating website that actually gave credence to this art), this is by far the best place to roost. Through trial and error, I actually had learned some basic moves just because they 'felt' right. Now, I have tapped a fountain, and cannot wait to keep drinking! My calluses are forming, and boy! will my niece's eyes light up when I show here what I'm learning from all of you (thus maintaining my lead as THE Uncle). Thank you all
