No, I know that one-- I'm talking about jumping into the hoop while you're doing the horizontal lasso, or "stirring" move. SaFire does it in her famous white-dress video, but I've never found a tute & just can't seem to grasp the timing without one.
Thank you so much for that link, but alas, these aren't quite the one I'm looking for! I can jump in from passing or whipping down from an overhead lasso, as Spiral demonstrates here, but I just can't seem to find the timing for jumping into a continuous forward lasso or "stir". Then again I haven't tried in a long time! Maybe I'll give it another go tomorrow & see if the magic works-- thanks for the reminder! :)
It's all about the timing and maintaining the stirring action after the jump. For left hoopers - 'stirring' your right arm counterclockwise, you need to jump just as your hand is passing in front of your body from left to right when your palm is facing your thighs. As you jump in, maintain contact with your palm against the inside of the hoop so your palm is now facing out to the right, fingers down, thumb pointed behind you, slightly lifting your hand as it continues to move counterclockwise around your body. Don't release the hoop onto your waist until your arm is extended almost fully in front of you with your palm facing away, fingers pointed down. Hope this explanation helps :)
Still not quite getting it but I can tell I'm much closer... it's definitely the hand motion after jumping in that is wonky. Your explanation is very clear... I can visualize what I need to do... I just need my muscles to catch on!
