It doesnt matter how fast you are learning just as long as you are enjoying it.
If you enjoy it, you will progress much quicker than if you dont.

Still can't get 5 beat myself. Finally managed to get 3 beat reverse weave so now i can move between the forward and reverse using windmills to so i can do fountains.

Lots of fun. As long as you get a kick out of it i think thats important.

i dunno what it is but i know a few people who have started very recently and there at a stage it took me ages to get to within a few weeks. its all very cooolio, just shows that i am teaching well ubbloco but like UCOF said, just enjoy and you will become lots better and more comfortable with the poi. just relax and things will become sooo much fun.

I went from zero to 5-beat in about a week and a half, although the 5-beat still slips occasionally. But then, I had nothing to do all day, so I spent around 3 hours a day doing it biggrin

Five beats took me almost a year to learn, there was also a time in there that I stopped spinning for a few months, so that set me back, but getting the five beat that fast is impressive.

Odd though how you're just now learning chasing the sun after the five beat. Nice job though.

Don't mind me, just passing through.

hehe smile thanx to all... i learned and created few tricks myself.. and when i came back home i saw they are in the free lessons page of this page.. so my arms in full of pain.. i guess i m not goin to flip poi about few days.. but i saw 5 beat forwards is too difficult for everyone but i can to it.. smile itss all about motivation and believe yourself.. and hey dont be afraid from the pain.. i havent got any hits from 12 (origin of male pain) so just try it slowly
