Posted:I was just about to post my videos of the double staff weaves and stuff...and then I recieved my copy of COL 5....and the dude spinning double staff poi style does what I was talking about in my previous posts so well...anyway...check out the last clip on COL 5...cool stuff...if you use shorter doubles and grip the doubles closer to wick and spin the doubles as if they were poi...most of the poi moves translate really well to double staff...check out the behind the back weave I thought that looked great with doubles...it is hard to use the "poi style" grip on fire....easy to burn hands....any suggestions???

Posted:Most of the poi stuff can be done with a centre grip and a bit of contortion, I think, with a bit of practise. The end grip is good for getting the feel of moves, but then you can *mostly* move back to centre grip. There's a few moves (e.g. 3 beat weave) where to do it you have to either open your hands so the back ends of the staffs can pass between them or do half of the move with one hand locked behind the other staff, so it's a translation rather than an exact copy of the move, but hey, it's a different toy...

If you're going to hold the ends you might as well do clubswinging or something silly biggrin biggrin biggrin

Posted:Can you explain more clearly what the poi stuff with staff was? That was my video you're talking about, or rather, I was in it and know all the other spinners in it. Dave was the staff spinner in the video, what poi stuff was he doing? I'll ask him about it.

O-well just like poi, many more moves will come of this. I remember when a lot of pro fire dancers looked down upon HOP when it first was set up, but a lot of new moves, styles and Safety have come up because of it. So I guess with a little info, a lot can come back. wink
