Hooping Tricks List and Videos


There are a stunning number of hoop tricks and many wonderful video demonstrations and tutorials on how to do them. The same trick can have many names and lots of minor variations, so it gets confusing. As Deanne explained to me, "The hoop trick names appear to be like some kind of slang depending on where you hoop, where you learned, what style you prefer, who invented them." The names of tricks are a crazy-mixed up world!

Seems impossible to get everything organised into a cohesive directory, but I've made a start by categorising the moves by where they are done on the body, their orientation (most tricks are either horizontal or vertical), and what sort of video it is - detailed tutorial, demo of a specific move, or inspiring full performance.

Woohoo, i just figured out half a trick. My leg is still killing me, so i cant hoop as such, but im dying to get out in the park again and start practicing, so i figured i can still do hand tricks, ne! And tonight i figured out the highway ramp part of this pop up trick. A good start I think!

I think my leg pain might be the result of driving - perhaps the clutch is killing me!

Er, when i say "this trick" what i meant was this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJHKZJxvawc
