Hello all, I've seen the tutorials on teh webby but was wondering if there's a good dvd or video out there that can help me. I know nothing beats learning from someone else but I don't think there are many if any clubs around where I live.

I am planning on learning from teh web tutorials, but would ideally like an instructional dvd or even book?

Any ideas?

This book is great, it covers the basics up to semi-advanced, a much wider range than any other book or DVD. It's known as the bible of poi spinning and explains everything in a very straight forward way, with diagrams. you can buy it here

Well I took your word for it and have ordered a Pair of 2 inch Weka fire poi and the book you listed above.

I already have some homemade poi kinda things, which I use for my martial arts, so can do some basic tricks already smile

Just gotta read up on how to light these bad boys!!!

I've searched my local libraries and they have a poi DVD!! is pretty cool. He's got lots of stuff on there. -->kinda like a babyHoP It's taking off right now and they're adding lessons weekly right now.

There's another one but I can't find the address, if I find it I'll edit it in.

lol i dont think the guy at actually knows what a "waistwrap" is.

It isn't really a wrap.

Someone ought to tell him.
