Posted:Hi all,

Good to be on here - have lurked for a while and figured I should start posting.

Have been doing staff work in martial arts for a few years and am just transferring to fire work now. Am based in the Newcastle area.

Am beginner/intermediate - have all the rotors and figure 8 stuff, having a little trouble with the fountain but sure I'll get there!

Posted:Richii: A clue may be the name of the forum. wink

Would actually be interested in seeing weaponised staffwork though. Someone was talking about it, but never followed up with videos.

Posted:If I can dig out my old vids I'll put them up. It's weird using my performance staff now. Despite being 6ft, it's fibreglass and weighs almost nothing!

Obviously using as a weapon is a lot sharper, more static, and a lot closer to the body as you don't want to be disarmed. It's more different than I would have thought trying it again.
