Posted:Please do a search. It has been discussed on here many times.

AND, do you want the history of staves? Poi? Clubs?
Which part of fire twirling?
As a ritual?
As entertainment?
There is alot to it and none of it is really very general.

Posted:There is a website for an israeli firespinner which claims that israeli's are the ones that developed and popularised the fire poi that we know today.

Personally i think the site is talking out of its ass

it shines at night but fades too soon

Posted:i'm often suprised at this board, it took 18420 members before somebody took the name "pyromania", i'd have guessed it'd be in the first three thousand. sorry for being offtopic, but since this thread's probably going to be locked anyway, what's the harm?
