Hello all. I was wondering... has anyone actually spun 4 poi at one time before? I am working on this and wanted to know if there is anyone out there in the poi universe that could offer any handy advise.

I am close and a video will be posted when I have accomplished this act.

Thank you all in advance!
peace. biggrin biggrin ubblove

There is actually a video of someone doing six poi at once, while lying on a skateboard, and going downhill. Quite the show, I must say. I forget who it is, and where it could be found.. But my mind says its something to do with this "Effortless" competition.

Regardless, I have tried it, but I don't care too much for it. I find two to be much more graceful.

6 poi, on a skateboard going downhill

4 poi isnt that hard at all. Do a search for "double meteor" and see what comes up. Im sure you will be suprised at what can be done. biggrin

I suppose that 4 poi, is just like double staff at the end of the day smile

welcome to HOP by the way!

The Maori have several moves with 2 poi per hand, so 4 at once is considered "easy"!

I have several large jars of the stuff. I actually like it... a little. And don't tell anyone I admitted to it.

I have been spinning 4 poi for some years now. i do them i two onehanded butterflys. its not easy but not impossible either.

u just have to learn how to start them, and if u say u almost have accomplised it i guessu are past that point already.

once u have got them started u can start ticking smile
i think over the head is the easiest one. offcourse u should do that one buttrefly at a time.

the throw is best learned with only one butterfly. spin two poi in your rigth hand, let go of one poi. i like to throw the lower one, i find it easyer to get back into the pattern. then u let it fal back to its place....hmm

this wasnt so easy to describe. prehaps i should make a video...
