Poi Flashcards


Having trouble remembering all the wonderful new tricks you learned? Looking for learning tools you can travel with to help remind you of the moves your working with currently?

Try the new Temple of Poi Flashcards!

Now available:

These 8x5" heavy card stock cards are divided into thematic decks. Each card is double sided and has large print Temple of Poi abbreviation notation of the pattern being studied. The large size makes the cards easy to read from a distance which means students can rest cards on the floor and out of the way while still being able to read the information.

Below the abbreviation is a short translation of the abbreviations.* The cards are color coded by category of information (move, transition, combination, action, etc.) and each deck includes an information card with a full list of abbreviations and color coding notation.

These flashcards provide several benefits:

  • offering a simple, straightforward way to study "poi vocabulary"
  • use them as visual cues to remind yourself of the next move by laying them out on the ground around you
  • increase your ability to translate moves from words to action more rapidly
  • enhance your comprehension of combinations of movements by randomly connecting cards (and later, cards from multiple decks) to both augment combination repertoire and refine your ability to construct flow between moves.
  • since the cards include moves in the direction and its opposite, these decks will help insure balance in learning as students use all the cards and therefore a greater range of possibilities
  • provides a consolidated list of patterns which acts as a poi dictionary
  • offers a common notation set useful for notating combinations and choreography to share with others
  • augments learning tool set which creates variation in ones practice, thereby reducing boredom

* Decks are created as supporting material for specific classes and assume students have some familiarity with the concepts represented in the cards. Students familiar with Temple of Poi learning structures will easily comprehend the card meanings. For those not as familiar with our methods, an information card is included to assist, though the card translates the abbreviations, not the meaning of the abbreviations.
