Anybody knows the name of this trick?

(The video quality isn't great so hopefully you can see it.)
I'm trying to learn it, so if you know any tutorials similar to that could you also direct me to them? Thanks guys!
I don't know if there's a name..but she's literally just spinning a hoop in either hand as well as one on either arm. Looks like it would be good to practice timing to get them to all rotate at different times.
What Allyssa said. The only thing helpful I can add is in poi when you are spinning at different intervals it is called split time. That might help in looking for multi hooping tutorials.
Safire does that a lot with two hoops horizontally above her head. I actually find that is more challenging to keep the one going on the forearm because you are fighting gravity, however, it might be a good idea to start with that to practice. I think it would really give you the feel for the muscle movement needed when you put them vertically on the sides of you. You'd be a lot more precise with it then.
Oh man, I don't know that it has a name but I learned the basics of this from Unity (Valentina) at Hoop Convergence this spring. It's HARD. I'm still working on it. I learned the best way to start the move is to bounce. Bouncing while spinning the two hoops on each arm will help you get them going and keep the momentum until you get it down better.
this trick is actually quite different to the helicopter trick that safire teaches in one of her classes.
The big difference is that on hoop is on the upper arm and one hoop is on the hand.
The best things that you can practice to learn this trick are
1. start a hoop spinning on your arm and then by drawing circles with your hand move it up to your upper arm. Then move it back down by doing circles with your shoulders and keeping your hands still. Then practice keeping it in the middle of your upper arm by making a small circle movement with your whole arm. Make sure to keep your arms parralell to the ground.
Once you can do that then try the trick with two hoops in all the different locations. For Example, start one on your upper arm using your hand then start the second hoop on that hand. Also practice one on each hand and then one on each upper arm.
After a bit of drilling you should be able to get all four going.
This is not really the kind of trick that needs a video tutorial as most of it is fairly self explanatory it is just one of those tricks that takes a long time to learn and really requires drilling.
