Posted:like everyone else i woulod advise you to just concentrate on getting the butterfly and 3 beat weave cos at least you can just do those n still look pretty good, but dont rush yourself ng et stressed if a move doesnt come, one of the things about poi is some moves literally cant be done until you have more flexibility in arms and wrist (which is gained from just practising again n again) such as the *grumble* behind the back weave which is soa noying me *grumble* so if u can't get a move dont worry, put your poi down n try in an hour or something smile

another thing on top of what these guys have said is you should learn just about spinning in the planes, thats the side planes so poi are either side of you straight and the wall planes where they spin in front of your face, because you need to train your arms into holding them properly so they dont clonk your face, then do same thing but in split time, I would VERY strongly advise you to get Michal Kahn's book on poi spinning, its my little bible, if your interested the ISBN to order it is 1898591199, its well worth the investment smile and any probs you have with moves just asj us we'll be happy to help

sorry about my lil essay, im not mad smile

Why don't you take a wander over to introductions and tell us a bit about yourself.

Oh, and good luck with the spinning. biggrin
