Posted:Hey all !

Just got back from the First Annual Fireknife Competition in Anaheim, Calif.
It was great - the best fireknife dancers in the world were there....some amazing performances. David Galeai took first place in the senior division.
My oldest son Malakai came in second in the Junior Division and my youngest son came in first in the Tamaititi Division biggrin.

Well done to your sons! I didn't know what a fire knife was either. Maybe you could video them and post it up in the video forum for us to see. Its always good to see something new.

Posted:Awsome man! I love ur site also. I think alot of westerners would be eek if you tell them you start your kids fire dancing at 6-7-8 yrs of age, alot of other threads come off bad as most people expect that chlidren dont have the skill or understanding untill they are over 12-15.

Having been there and lived it, i have seen the potential and culture of it in the islands, and also that by the time your 15 in the islands its almost to late to become a champ seeing as most of the 15yr olds are masters. I love the way it is bred in to the culture and is just part of everyday life and "what you do".

Just seeing your site made me want to go back...i still have 1 of the two blades i brought home biggrin My son is nearly 4, what do you think wink ubblol

Thats it! im saving now, hopefull we can catch up at Aggies one day, otherwise ill take a detour to Pago.

Posted:Your son is 4 ?
I saw two four year olds at PCC last year who floored me !
They weren't competing - they were just showcasing - but the little man did doubles !

Just do what I did with my kids - start them off with really small wicks - as they get comfortable, you increase the size.

It's also nice that we don't have to worry about codes and stuff - we just light up whenever and wherever we please.
I'd love to post video - but I'm on a slow dial up. I'll be happy to send a CD with some DIVX clips to anyone who can post them.
