Learning transitions is almost like learning poi all over again.
We all know that feeling when you've spent hours trying to learn a trick and the moment of victory when you can do it reliably.
Then you realize you have no idea how to connect it to your other tricks...
Many of us when we first start out simply do a trick for a few repetitions, stop spinning, do our next trick for a few reps, and stop again.
It can be an agonizing way to start out--especially if you're spinning fire!
