Richie Isaacs is here with a brand new tutorial and he’s going to be teaching all of us a little technique/move that he likes to call “Monkey Crosses The Bridge”. He says, “This simple yet fun technique is something I adapted from an old nunchuku move I used to do eons ago.” He’s right about it too, it’s not too difficult to learn regardless of your hooping level, and it is a lot of fun to play with as well. Go give it a spin for yourself! Richie lives in New Plymouth, New Zealand.
Valdemar Skov, otherwise known as Indy Woods, is here with his first tutorial and his first appearance on hooping.org. As he says, he’s going to be teaching us all “a few of the minor mysteries of vertical shoulder hooping explained through a cloud of blackflies. The hungry little buggers hadn’t quite reached life-threatening concentrations yet, and I survived to upload this video for you. Enjoy.” We’re grateful for his survival, and for this super helpful tutorial that’s perfect for those looking to do so some vertical spinning on the body. Indy lives in the great state of Maine, USA.
We haven’t seen Rico Titou of Hoopys on Hooping.org in quite awhile and we’ve really missed his own unique style of hoop dance a lot. Really cool skills, brilliant colors, gorgeous landscapes, his new demo takes us from the country to the stage, and from day to night with a little The video was filmed by Te Touze in Arambol, Goa, India. Rico is currently living in Vanosc, France, and the soundtrack that he’s hooping to is called “Funkin Lovely” by Love & Light and it’s available for you to download for your own hoopjam on iTunes.
If you don’t know Yuya Yamada, better known as Hoop Man in Japan and beyond, you need to give him your full attention because it’s not very often that we get to. His vertical head hooping alone is something we must insist you see for yourself. A street performer in Japan, here we find him bringing his hula hoop act to a sporting event where he wows his audience, just as he always does. At the end we also get to see him do what he holds the Guinness World Record for too, hooping with the world’s largest hoop – 4m 93cm or 16.17 feet in diameter. He lives in Tokyo, Japan.
Jerry Bones of Handmade Hula Hoops and Fire Hoops, otherwise known as Jerry Weingart, is back. Now everyone can see what he’s been up to since his debut on Hooping.org this past Fall. His at-home flow space may be simple, but his hoop skills certainly aren’t! We really like watching his smooth flow and original style of hooping. Jerry lives in Barnegat, New Jersey, USA, and the soundtrack that he’s hooping to is called “Wonderwall” by Oasis, which you can download for yourself on iTunes.
JJ Hula, aka James Frederickson, has been laying low for awhile, but he’s back with a new video highlighting his favorite hooping moments from the past 3 years. Included are clips from performances, practices, and unreleased projects that truly show off his passion for hoop dance. He says, “With this magical toy, I have felt true love. Before my first, freshly taped hula hoop rolled into my life, there had never been a physical activity that captivated me!” JJ is from Virginia, USA, and his soundtrack here is “Applause” by Lady Gaga. Its available on iTunes.
