Class Experience

Students will learn to spin poi proficiently without hurting themselves and how to enjoy a new activity that is artistic and creative. 
Jonathan has been a martial arts expert since the age of 9. From the age of 16 he worked with various circus teams where he learned many skills. He has travelled the world performing for audiences including Formula 1 events, royalty and international superstars. He is a fully insured fire performer with many skills including bubbleology, staff spinning, juggling and stilt walking, to name but a few. 

As a serial entrepreneur who founded three successful companies before the age of 30, my drive to succeed in life began in my teens when I realised the power of positive motivation. I was lucky enough to have a good mentor who guided me through the intricacies of financial management which helped me to understand the value of money, how to identify and seize opportunities to make money and how to manage an investment portfolio. 

He holds a Bachelors degree and also teaches conversational English to children and adults across the world.
To practice the material learned in class 1 to be ready for class 2. 
We will make our first practice poi, and you will need the following: 1 pair of long (colorful) cotton socks - they need to be the kind that you can pull up to your knee and without any holes. 2 x tennis balls Students will need a set of poi for the class and to practice with. If you have never bought poi before and are unclear which is right for you, please contact me and I will advise. The poi you buy or make will depend on your height and the types of tricks you are looking to learn. This will be explained in more detail during the class. It might also be good to have a few different types of poi to play with to help you decide which you prefer, but these are optional.
1 hour 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
The student will need space to spin. If you are taking this class inside please make sure the ceiling is high enough for you not to hit it, I recommend a minimum ceiling height of 9 foot or more. 

The same goes for the space around you. Please make sure you have enough space to move around and spin your poi without hitting anything. This space should be approximately 8x8 feet. 

If you can I would suggest taking this class in as spacious an area as possible; gardens and garages are great.

If you have limited space, not to worry, I will teach students much smaller tricks that don't need so much space. These are core skills and can be scaled up, so they're good to practice later in a more spacious area.  

Please note there are risks involved with this activity, including injury if the student hits themselves with the equipment while practicing. To limit this risk, the equipment/poi we use initially to practice are made out of tennis balls and socks so the student can learn without any real injury. (They may hit themselves in the head a few times with the tennis balls while learning, as everyone does.) I, the teacher, will not be responsible for any damage or personal injury caused by the student during or after this class.  

Just so it is very clear, I will not be including the use of fire in this class. I will not be teaching any tricks with fire in this class. Working with fire is very dangerous. I will cover this and explain why they must become master spinners before they can ever think about working with fire.
