History of the Poi
originates from the indigenous Maori people of New Zealand and simply means "ball". For over a thousand years Maori women have
danced with Poi Balls to keep their hands flexible and to provide entertainment.
Maori men used Poi Balls to increase flexibility and strength in their hands and arms, to improve
balance and co-ordination required during battle.
