My 10cents:

I personally hate seeing people spin fast. Male or Female, I think it just makes poi untidy. THe slower you can spin, the more control you have over them smile

*debates wether or not to talk about this fondness of tidy planes ubblove*

Your poi seem to stop moving at 16 seconds.
Was this intentional? wink

Your Llendei plant in the garden needs some serious attention. It looks to me like it might have ringworm. Best to have a look at it.

The idea of this set is spinning fast, it's a part of an XMA show.

The chinese, or Wushu, like to do things very very fast so you wont understand anything from what they are doing, and just say :O . This is the idea of this set.



please talk about the tidy planes, I have no idea what is that and it would be nice to learn something new.



What do you mean by 16 seconds? the length of the video is 31 seconds right?

Posted:Ok hummmmmm!!!!!!!

There is a big pause probably from when you encoded it. have you actually watched the uploaded version yourself cos the frame rate goes to pot so your poi just seem to jump about. confused

You obviously have some skill ubblove but I have to agree with john it all looks a bit sloppy if you slow down it would look much more smooth and flowing and you could demonstrate your full range of moves. you can then intersperse this with faster stuff which adds variety to your performance. hug

I think also because you are forcing the poi to go fast it ads a kind of jerkiness to you movement, the on the floor stuff is good but because it is a bit fast you seem totally unbalanced and a little awkward. redface

Sorry if this all seems a bit negative redface. But hay who am I to talk I dont even have a vid yet hug hug

Posted:hmmm.. I've seen this vid before... but here's my two cents.....
I do like the spinning on the ground and the btb weave while getting down there. You definately have some talent
However, I have to agree that your spinning in the planes (the vertical spaces to your sides in particular in this case) did seem a little bit off.
The way I would suggest to correct this is to practise your spinning at a slower speed, and to look for more aesthetic quality in what you are doing, work it out and then produce a routine that you can practise like a kung fu form.
In terms of producing moves for an xma show including acrobatics etc, i suggest you look at the Chimaera show video, the a couple of moves in roughkutz by TePooka and bender's Joy of Staff for inspiration. Also for more acrobatic stuff (which I think you quite enjoy) go and check out http://www.trickstutorials.com/
br> Also keep examining your spinning- look in a mirror, look at your shadow or watch vids of yourself, and look for what you want in your spinning.
I am hoping to put together a new video about christmas time (when I get a video camera) in which I am seeking to put together some kung fu footwork and style with contemporary spinning, in which I hope to demonstrate how the two disciplines may be brought together..(plug!plug!plug! wink) but still I have much technical skill in both areas to amalgamate.
hmmm... that was more like 5 cents.... wink
look forward to a longer vid showing us what you've put together!

I needed to shorten the poi in half so it wont hit the floor, that is also why I spin it so fast.
