POI

Had my first poi class. I think that all the years growing up playing with nunchakus really helped with the poi. I will really need to practice. I would like to get to the point where I could be fire-poi. I am also hoping that this will help me sweat away some of this weight. I start at the post office one week form Monday. Poi classes are form 13:00 to 14:00 on Saturday afternoons, and I won't have to be to the post office until about 6:00 so that will make class quite do able. Shawna (poi teacher) handed me a set of her flags. I almost felt like should be out on the disco floor twirling flags to a high energy disco beat. At the end of class I was told that Shawna's hubby Berk (woof bear) will teach poi-staff. I am looking forward to that.

That is really cool. If you need to sweat off some weight, might I suggest a visit to Texas? Between the heat and MY BED I think we could give you a good work out!

That would really get me sweating. I would probably need more than one session for the practice.

It is really something to get used to. I am hoping that one day I am as impressive as the video....

kinda reminds me of clackers... but when I searched youtube for clackers, I found these little boys flapping their balls:

Yeah, I had a set of those. There were a lot of fun.
As for the kids in the videos, how fun will they be in another 10 years....
