I see a lot of people chest hooping or waist hooping and the practically just tap the hoop and it reverses directions. I'm not sure what you would call this but i would love some pointers on how to do it, or maybe some tutorials. If you guys have any advice or even know the name of this trick please let me know.
Love to the community <3
Ok. so now you know that this moves are called breakes. Im obsessed with them. There are a whole bunch of different ways you can break and reverse the hoop. You dont need to know how to hoop in reverse current to break the hoop, you can just double break it and keep hooping on your dominant current.
Remember that breaks can be done from chest, neck, waist, leg, foot, hand and off body hooping...
Here is a good tutorial on chest breaks from Gary:
And here is another for continuous chest breaks from Amanda:
Good luck!! I just want you to know that I didnt know how to hoop in the opposite direction when I started to break. I just tapped the hoop with my right hand and immeadiatly with my left hand so the hoop just changed direction for a micro second. Then I started little by little hooping half a spin more in my opposite direction.
If you need more help just let me know!
Doing two quick breaks in a row looks cool and doesn't require being able to hoop in the opposite direction. I've just started working with the arm breaks on the outside of the hoop, and I'll often do a pair of breaks in a row, like at 1:06 in the last video I uploaded:
When I first started doing breaks, I used my hands to stop and reverse the hoop. I find it easier to control the hoop with hands than with arms or other body parts. Also, you can get a bunch of breaks in that way, and it's really good for beat punctuation.
Have fun with it!
