G is a world renowned poi master and poi teacher, and has worked a lot with Nick Woolsey from playpoi.com
He has studied Poi as a movement art since 2003, and possesses a unique ability to apply his knowledge and understanding of object manipulation to a variety of arts such as staff, contact juggling, whips and an array of juggling props, some not quite intended for this purpose.
G has traveled the globe since 2007 to take his knowledge to new communities and in addition learn and develop new techniques and concepts for spinning and teaching poi. His vast skill set and repitoire of mezmerizing performances have earned G his international acclaim.
G has been traveling around South Africa for the last couple of months, and has been doing workshops while doing the tourist thing. I attended 2 of his workshops in Cape Town, and will hopefully be attending another one when he returns to Cape Town in a couple of weeks.
