Posted:Hi all



I'm on a big french juggling forum and we have a big debat about spinning or swinging ?



for some people, spinning is for balle or plate rotation (on finger or stick) but not allow for using poi



spinning is used more and more by poi user instead of swinging which was more used before



I'd like to know what is your opinion about this :



shall we use spinning for poi juggler ?



thanks in advance



Yoann



edit : I'd like to but a poll, but forgot it so if a modo or and admin read this and could add it to this post thx smile

Jugglers, like programmers, handle objects which, at first sight, seem complex and difficult to control. Some of them, with time and patience, manage to control one or the other or both at the same time, and thus become aware of what they are doing.

Swinging involves a pendulam motion. Like a swing in a park. It goes forward up to a point then goes backward to a point.

Spinning involves rotations i.e full circles. Thus when I play with a staff or poi they are going in full circles (mostly) so I'm spinning.



I agree with this. I suspect that the 'original' types of motion that were used in what used to be called Indian Club Swinging were far more 'back and forward'.
These days the kinds of styles (have a look at Josh(Pyrolific's) video "Under the Bridge") is more 'spinning'. So you could say "I am spinning my clubs a lot in my new routine" to describe that this is the type of movement you are using.
You could also say "I am swinging my poi rather than spinning them"

I would say I was 'swinging' my poi rather than 'spinning' them if I was
