Tutorials
Taming Fire is proud to provide you with a full set of what we consider intermediate to advanced poi tutorials. We will soon be releasing another two installments of tutorials based for flag performance and clubs, so keep on the watch as we hope they will become available soon. Also don't forget that we have also indexed all of the quality online tutorial resources we are aware of for poi, staff, equipment development, and photography. Know of another web resource for tutorials? Make a note of them in our Web Site Link Submission Section of the Forum.

Taming Fire's - Intermediate to Advanced Poi Tutorials
Categories:

Concept


Weave


Windmill

Butterfly

Pinwheel

Corkscrew
These tutorials are an attempt to guide you to the next initial direction once one has successfully completed all of the begriming poi tutorials found at Home of Poi. These are not a begriming series or introduction to poi in any form, for an introduction to poi and how to use it please head to Home of Poi, the international resource for online poi spinners. These moves are provided in an sequential order which progresses on moves and concepts based from previous tutorials in the series. Jumping around to different tutorials without first covering the prior tutorials is ill advised. Although TamingFire.Com is fire oriented, these moves are provided as reference material only, for non-fire based training. Perform at your own risk, as TamingFire.Com is not responsible for your actions or decisions in any way.
