Lauryn Yovino of Snowflake Hoops Inc. makes her hooping.org debut with this fun tutorial. She’s here to teach all of us a move that she is calling the “Knee Hook Jump Through”. Lauryn shows us two different variations on it too, one that is more basic that is good for even those just starting out, and the other is more advanced so you’re sure to spin up something fun with this trick at any level. Maybe you can come up with a few variations of your own as well. Lauryn lives in Brooklyn, New York, USA.
Earlier this week we shared an an advanced tutorial on this, but here is a really great no frills tutorial on the basics behind paddles and breaks for those who are just starting out or having trouble with them. Cindy, aka Shucks Ducks, is here to tell us all about it and she does a great job of describing the basic motions of paddles and breaks. As she puts it, “Your breaks just change the direction your hoop is going and your paddles help the break move along.” She even includes a few helpful tips like absorbing the shock from the hoop when you do a break and moving in the direction your hoop is going. She lives in Macomb, Michigan, USA.
So you want to learn how to do the roll back? Well today Stepfhanie Connell of Boomtown Hoops has put together a fabulous tutorial demonstrating the roll back with several variations that are also lots of fun. She explains, “I call this move a roll back, you are rolling the hoop over the shoulder from collar bone to upper back and catching it behind. I showed some variations of this move also. If you would like further explanation just leave a comment (on the youtube video) and I would be happy to help. Much smiles and love”. Stepfhanie and Boomtown Hoops are both from West Virginia, USA.
Hooping.org Assistant Editor Natasha “Hoopsie Daisy” Young of HoopsieDaisy.com is here with a new tutorial on how to do the “Brass Monkey” – or you can call it a leg hooping step out if you’d rather. Where did she get the name “Brass Monkey” from? The Beastie Boys song by the same name of course (on iTunes), and just as the song itself says, “You put your left leg down and your right leg up.” If you hoop in the opposite direction from Natasha you’ll need to switch that up though. Her kickin’ tutorial also includes some kick ass variations at the end as well. She lives in Berkeley, California, USA.
