Posted: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?

Posted: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

Posted:I've searched my local libraries and they have a poi DVD!!

motsplace.com is pretty cool. He's got lots of stuff on there.

domorepoi.com -->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.

Posted:lol i dont think the guy at domorepoi.com actually knows what a "waistwrap" is.

It isn't really a wrap.

Someone ought to tell him.
