Learn how to start doing a knee stall or reversal. Start hooping in “orbit” around the body. Lift your knee up to your waist and as your hoop comes around to your front hook your knee on hoop and force hoop in opposite direction. Use your left hand and your right knee. The momentum from your knees forces it back into the opposite direction for you to be able to go left to right continuously. To go in the other direction, start with your right hand and your left knee.
