Posted:Take one poi in one arm, spin the poi in forward rotations and then rotate your arm in forward rotations. This will create a regular flower. Arm and poi are rotating same direction.

Now, spin the poi forward as before, but rotate your arm backwards (swimming backstroke). This is antispin, poi rotating one direction, arms rotating the other. Now apply to both arms and then spin it altogether.

good luck.


Definition of poi- A Hawaiian food made from the tuber of the taro that is cooked, pounded to a paste, and fermented.

Ahnold discussing poi - "It is naht a toober!"

Posted:Which explanations have you already seen?

We might just start repeating things you've already read and not found helpful.


But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Posted:Joe, the basic concept of flowers isn't complicated, but the plane control is...

One thing to keep in mind is to keep your arms as straight as possible, try to make the biggest flower you can.

You're going to find that control is more difficult in some areas, mainly when your arm is straight out behind you and I find it helps to just stop your flower when your arms are horizontal, and try to note what's happening behind you. Is your poi going off on some funny angle?

Don't forget to practice in both directions too,,eventually you're going to want to explore turning these things

Posted:It is to a noobster like me =^_^=

I know and it makes my arms ache a little too, I found that if I look down and learn farward a little I can do a full circle, that swing when my arms behind my back is a whore! lol

Posted:Well you seem to have gotten the basic premise of flowers form just a few sentences posted above. I just said the idea wasn't complicated..but the practice is a whole different story.

Working these planes with just one poi helps, both directions, regular and antispin, this allows you to concentrate more on control of the poi, especially in those problem areas. The one poi method also eases experimenting with turns. Just don't forget to use the other hand, you may want to consider devoting a little extra attention to your weaker hand too.

Well, I think Suibom's explanation was pretty simple and clear, and I dunno how else to rephrase it than how he has said. Garthy has done a couple of animations to try and show you how it works. Dunno if they will help, but with Suiboms explanation and the pics, things may become clearer.

Hope that helps a bit more. And, very ungrateful btw spank

Posted:I thought Bradhorn was being a **** when I read the reply first.

Then I re-read "i saw a few explanations but nothing helped " and read "everything ive read was really wordy and not to the point"

I think he/ she/ it was reffering to the other threads being unhelpful, and that this thread was helpful.
