Posted:Hello everyone - New to the forums, and also new(ish) to poi. Although I've owned a set of poi for about a year, I've only just begun spinning on a regular basis in the past couple months, using the Poi Spinning Basics With Pele's Element and Art of Poi DVDs. I'm getting to the point where I can do just about all the moves from these DVDs, and I'm wondering what would be a good choice or choices for more DVDs to continue with my learning. Encyclo-poi-dia 1/2? Poi Technique? Scales of Poi? Adventures in moves? Or something else?
Basically, I can do most of the basics - 3 bt weave, tunrs, butterflies, waves, etc - more or less everything from the DVDs I have. Any suggestions on a "next step" DVD would be greatly appreciated.
BTW, I do own the poi spinning book, but find that I prefer to learn from DVDs.

Posted:a friend of mine let me borrow "encycol-poi-dia volume 2" which has been really helpful. honestly though, if you're cheep and live somewhere you can access youtube, that'll be a near comprehensive source if you're willing to look.

Posted:Would suggest not bothering with DVDs, and just going on youtube or the FB tech poi group.
Playpoi.com - pretty neat site, nice place to start out with and very good tutorials.
Drexfactor - literally hundreds of videos on poi, concepts and tutorials.
