With shortened Poi, spin the Poi between your arms in split time.

To get your poi shorter, try wrapping them once around your hand.

Additional notes: Can be done in reverse, on its side, and butterfly. The excessive arm motion is done on purpose to demonstrate how to keep it going.

Didn't help? Try these!

How do you transition into the buzzsaw? I've seen people do this with fire at gatherings and they seem to do it no problem, it looks so dangerous wink.

Do a simple 3bt weave, then just take the Poi into the middle. smile

I've heard that Poi are supposed to be as long as your arms, and mine are, but when they're that long they would smack me in the head if i tried this move. Should my Poi be shorter or do you have different lengths for different moves?

To make longer Poi suitable for buzzsaw wrap some of the cord around your hand first. That way you can still do lovely big Poi Moves too smile

I don't really see how you can say this is the easiest Poi move... I can do the 3 beat weaves front and back, the 5 beat weave, the fountain and a few other beginner things, but I still can't do this buzzsaw! I think being a tall lanky dude makes it much easier than being a petite girl, because even with my Poi wrapped around my hands, I have to stretch my arms straight out in front of me, which is SO uncomfortable and even then, the Poi just take turns whacking my tits lol!

I feel like my arms are too short unless I make the Poi ridiculously small
