They look great with solid day hoops, but I feel like using an LED takes the illusion away from them. I really like off body and isolation style tricks, but I feel like I can't use them with my glow hoops because they don't look clean. Does anyone else feel this way, or is it just me?

I used to feel this way... Honestly the only way to feel more confident with isos is to keep practicing them. Lighter hoops like poylpro can help make them a little more smooth looking. But the upside to messy isos with an LED is you get to see the tracer more :]

I think isos look even cooler with LED hoops. If you can make it look clean it looks like the lights are chasing themselves in a perfect circle. And then when you do the iso-pop it's even more awesome because all of a sudden the trails appear and you can see where the hoop used to be in one place.

I really like practicing isolations with my LED while looking in a mirror or a big window at night. It really shows what is going on helped me get the movements down.

Would you mind sharing which tricks look nice at dusk? (:

If the LED hoops wobble at all, the illustion is destroyed, so you need to focus on precision with your off-body moves. The only way to get better is to practice. If you have access to a large mirror or reflective glass surface, that will give you instant visual feedback. Otherwise, video and review.

Practice stopping the tricks mid-flow without wobbling. This requires wrist strength & stability.

Practice keeping your planes perfectly straight. Try doing your tricks right up against a wall.

Practice keeping your isolations still. This requires strength in your shoulders and focus.

Practice the rhythm of bounces. Steady rhythm helps to keep the illusion alive.


Where can I access my classes?

Unfortunately, I am going to have to MANUALLY transfer over 1700 students to the new site. When it is ready I'll be posting EVERYWHERE with instructions on how to log into your account. I'll do whatever it takes to make this work so you don't lose your access.

Predicted launch date: January 23rd, 2016

Thank you for your patience and support!

Much love,
