IJA Tricks of the Month June 2016 USA by: Chris Kelly

Hello! My name is Chris. I am 21 years old, and currently reside in Eugene, Oregon in the United States. I was introduced to poi spinning almost 5 years ago, and learned to juggle poi just over 3 years ago. I am the sole proprietor of Techris Things On Strings www.etsy.com/shop/techristhings. I also produce “The Prop Gathering” which takes place June 30th-July 3rd in Blue River, Oregon.

The focus for this video was to demonstrate my favorite patterns and ideas from the past year of research. I am very drawn to poi juggling because of how unexplored it is. Unlike clubs, balls, and rings, there are very few people juggling poi which makes it very easy for me to think of new ideas that I have never seen or done before. Although I do a bit of ball and club juggling, I always end up with the poi back in my hands.

This video consists primarily of 3-poi, with a little bit of 1, 2, and 4 poi.
