Posted:Hi there HoPpers,

At work quite a while ago, one of my mates said that when i spin it kinda looks like Tai Chi and this i have applied to the name of my poi style, Poi Chi.

Other distinct styles that i have recently observed i would call Furious Fire and Pixie Poi.

My Question to all of you is what do you call your style and how would you decribe it, I've included a couple of examples just because.

Poi Chi: very slow spinning, slightly over exagerated moves, suited to moves that are moderate to high in technical difficulty.

Furious Fire: very fast spinning favoured by newbees.

Pixie Poi: varried tempo, quite happy and bouncy, suited to most moves especially chasing the sun and variations therof

Posted:I'd call mine Ataru (yes, stolen from Star Wars, and yes, I am a nerd) - I like to put in as much acrobatics and movement aside from the actual poi techniques as I can!

Would 'trying-to-avoid-another-groin-shot' be a more advanced 'trying-to-avoid-another-black-eye' style?
