The Fire: Episode 1 - Really Basic Fire Spinning(staff)

I HAVE to upgrade to HD uploads, it looks so ...non contrasty.

anyway, Here's the first in another series of videos, going through from the basics of firespinning (both staff and poi), and onto some more tricky/impressive moves , also there'll be some fire vids up once I brave the cold and get out there.

I don't do akido or use a bo-staff btw, I do it for fun and shiny things.

cheers for taking the time :)

Looks great. You should try to do it blindfolded too.

Post scriptum: I like your beard.

That was interesting. Looking forward to the next video.

Looks pretty cool. I think I'm inspired to give myself a good whack in the head with a stick now, thanks!

@fritzdude, @huntad , @still_i_cry, cheers fellas, and yes it hurts when you whack yourself in the particulars/head. After 5years of doing firespinning i've never been burnt though, singed yes... start with something light by all means, but for the contact stuff you need something grippier and heavier.

This isn't graphix!! I didn't sign up for this.

I kid, pretty cool stuff! Maybe I'll learn one for parties/intimidation before engaging in Michael Jackson-esque street brawls.

Coming soon - How to get drunk and play super meat boy: Episode one!

I'm not even kidding. I just watched those videos again and they are still fucking hilarious.

You should get the part of Shaky Jake in the way of the warrior remake.
