Posted:Though this is a small achievement to many of Hop members,I did my first fire poi last night.(after 5 days of doing poi,was with a good teacher though) Absolutley shit myself, but it doesn't hurt, even when they entangled aroud my arm.

Though through panic and the burning sensation I expected but did not recieve, I chucked the poi on the floor, at which point I most probably looked like a fool.

Anyway this have given me even more enthusiasm for the art of poi, something I wasn't short of anyway. Heres to learning more tricks.

Posted:Congrats on your first burn!
Glad you weren't burnt too badly when the poi got tangled on your arm.
Here's to many more burns!
