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.

Hoop Tricks; Playing with open space.
Once you can hoop comfortably and can keep the hoop going, now it is time to play with all that open space in the hoop. Take your hands and look for gabs between the hoop and your body, when you see one, stick your hand in it and pull it back out before the hoop runs into your arm. This is using the “open space” in the hoop and between your body.
You can also do this while turning to slow down the motion and give you a chance to sweep your arm for longer periods of time.
