Basic techniques used in Led poi performance
The performer should master the string that he has to spin. The performer must master the string so that after releasing the string in the air, it should land perfectly in his hands. Another way to hold a string is to maintain a strap or a handle.
To master the spinning process, start with your dominant hand and begin to swing either forward or backwards; this is the basis of all poi techniques.
If you are throwing the ball forward, your palm should face downward and if you are facing up.
Once you are in motion, make sure that your swing is vertical, and the next step from here is to start spinning the other end of the Poi without making any contact with the ground or simply saying then without dropping the Poi.
