Vad du kommer att göra

First off, you will get a history of traditional Samoan Fireknife dancing. Also show you the real knives that are used at shows and I currently use.
From there, will begin to learn and practice the basic moves of Fireknife. If you are confident enough at the end of practice, you will have the opportunity to showcase your newly acquired skills on fire and make a great video to take home for friends and family! Feel free to “go live” on any social platform during my performance or during the lesson. Once the evening has ended, i will light a fireknife up and explain how we work with the fire and understand it. Lastly I will give a demonstration with both single and double fireknives on fire!

Private or group bookings are available. Please inquire about unavailable days as bookings may be adjusted based need. Mahalo!
Other things to note
Practice fire knife sticks will be provided for the event only and will be available for purchase.

Aloha! My name is Pomaika'i and I was born and raised here on Kaua'i. I have been a full time Samoan Fireknife dancer for several years and have performed in luaus, weddings, private parties (including for celebrities) and even concerts with thousands of spectators. I have worked with and continue to work with many different entertainment groups ranging from aerialists, jugglers, poi spinners, musicians, drummers, and more! During the day when I am not performing, I am able to work with the local youth by providing lessons and featuring my students in local events. All the support helps me to continue to do what I love and spend my off time with my daughter that is almost 2. Building our future, all the generations between within our communities, and all people we come in contact with and inspire. Thank you for all your support!

Var ni kommer att vara

We can choose a favorite beach, park, or private setting. Near the ocean is usually best. Parks also work great. I have a main area called Lydgate which has a large pavilion for cover, a large kids playground, also is right next to the beach. Feel free for suggestions on location, even by where your staying currently.

Our experience was super entertaining and interactive. Getting hands on experience (with a training stick) make us appreciate the work, skill and presentation that goes into Pomaika'is performance. Seeing the amount of coordination and precision that's needed to make a performance happen makes you truly appreciate how difficult is. Pomaika'i was super engaging and enthusiastic about his craft. We would highly recommend checking it out.

We had a memorable evening at the fire knife experience with Jordan. We ended up choosing to meet at Lydgate park since we were staying near Kapaa. The pavilion there was the perfect spot. Outdoor but covered which kept us out of the on and off rain. The experience was just myself and my boyfriend. The first portion was a lesson where we learned three moves and pieced them together. The second portion was the professional demo. Jordan and his apprentice were impressive. In this intimate setting, we could feel the heat from the fireknife and hear the fuel burn hot. Much more intense than at a luau where you sit far from the stage. The close-up personal show was a once in a lifetime experience.

So excited to have found this class. Pomaika’i is amazing at his craft and adjusted to our skill level (of lack there of), to create an atmosphere where we were constantly involved and learning. The hands on experience with the practice tool was interesting, but having the opportunity to spin the real FireKnife was unexpected joy. With Pomaika’i close by, there is confidence in safety while trying out the FireKnife lit at both ends. Yes, we got to use the Double Flame tool! Just as amazing are the multiple performances he does during the class. His artistry with the single and dual FireKnifes is a true pleasure to see up close. Hearing and feeling the flames spinning just ten feet from you is so cool. He does not hold back and provides an electrifying show. If you’re thinking about signing up, just do it. Don’t overthink this; you will love it. Communication was perfect, before and during the activity. Extremely intimate, as our experience was just Pomaika’i, my mother and I. You will not feel bad for struggling. The class is completely tailored to you.

I enjoyed the historical presentation of the Samoan culture. It was intriguing g to learn how to perform some of the hand fire twirling moves. The final presentation was spectacular especially at the beach front with the ocean as the background.

DO THIS!! It’s a really unique experience, Pomaikai (Jordan) was fabulous. We met up at Lydgate Park, it’s a beautiful spot on Kauai, and were immediately immersed in Fireknife culture. We had been to a Luau many years before, so we knew what “fire dancers” were - but had no idea how intense a practice it is or how rare it is to be a fireknife expert. It takes a really special commitment, and Jordan has excelled. He shared his skill and love for the art with us. We learned the three basic moves - all of which are do-able (without fire) - and then got to watch Jordan perform those moves at high speed with fire. Super cool. You’ll never watch a Luau in the same way again! Oh, and we did get to play with fire...carefully :-).

I booked this experience for a group of coworkers I was planning a trip for and they had nothing but good things to say after the experience. Pomaika'i was also extremely quick to respond and offered up many ideas for where to meet (the group was looking for the best backdrop), what time to schedule the experience, etc. I wanted to make sure the group had a personalized and hands-on experience, as supposed to going to one of the larger luau/fire knife shows and it sounds like they would highly recommend it!
