I think I like your shed.
I think your poi match your beanie.
I think it was cold when you filmed this.
I think....oh wait, you mean about your spinning? Oh right, well then I think it's AWSOME! biggrin

*cough* I also think I stopped making sense a long time ago....And yes, this is in the wrong forum..

Posted:Let's have some Critique, shall we? smile

For a first Vid. Very good. smile

A few tips:

Slow and steady wins the race. I like slow spinning. it looks much better.

Watch your planes. They make moves look a lot cleaner.

Timing went on a couple of moves... namely the Iso buzzsaw and flowers you were doing there. No worries, this takes practice.

Spin a bit closer to the camera. We want to see you!!

I don't think I saw a single stall in there. Learn them. IMO, they're much better than kicks and wraps for changing direction. They look much cleaner.

All in all, not a bad vid. smile Nice range of moves in there.


Empty your mind. Be formless, Shapeless, like Water.
Put Water into a cup, it becomes the cup, put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, put water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot.
Water can flow, or it can Crash.
Be Water My Friend.

Posted:mmm. 'tis a nice video biggrin i look forward to seeing what you got in a little while biggrin

it said

my fist video

which could be horribly misconstrued(if you had a dirty drain, which, of course, i don't)

dom kindly jumped in and expressly didn't add the letters 'ing' to the title, but changed it to 'first'

keep it up biggrin

Posted:Loving the video! This sort of thing is really useful for us beginners as you can actually see whats being done. Fire poi vids are pretty, but its difficult to see what the move is and therefore replicate it. More of the same please! And maybe some with flag poi or poi with tails?

ps - nice shed. Somehow I didn't think there would be sheds like that in America! (Unless constructed entirely out of white picket). peace

Posted:Your neighbours do have a nice house, no white picket fence though. (And no they're not just an Ameican cliche - I've been to Massachusetts and seen them!).

Can you explain to me what it is you're doing about 50 seconds into the video, the poi are spinning horizontal circles around your hand - not come across that yet. Very pretty.

Keep up the good work. rolleyes

Posted:Nice one (runs outside to try it). I spin with fabric and glow poi mostly so not done much buzzsaw stuff yet. I can see now its just a buzzsaw on its side (thats why I prefer daytime vids - you can see the hands, or fists in your case!) But I have just mastered the behind the back backwards weave so feeling rather pleased with myself!

Also on another subject - have just bought some flag poi. Does anyone know of any good videos??? thankx

No, I meant fists as in your earlier spelling mistake! (Don't worry - we all like a bit of fisting!!!?) Been doing that sideways buzzsaw thing and it looks really pretty with cobras. Too scared to do it with fire yet though! ubblol

Ps - ignore my english humour! And ta for the flag video offer - I look forward to seeing it! thankx
