What is your goal for 2013 and why is it important? (Doesn't have to be hoop related.)
I picked up a hoop a week ago and have not been able to stop. I hope that in 2011 I will be able to incorporate the moves i have learned so far into a routine and make everything smoother and prettier. And always keep learning.

I have a Leg Hooping Tutorial on my website. The key to leg hooping is to remember that it is not hooping on your knees. It is hooping on your legs. When you feel the hoop is starting to fall to your knees, then take your left leg (if you hoop to the left) and start bumping the hoop with that leg only. You will feel the hoop start to move up. Keep bumping with that leg to keep the hoop above your knees. Your legs will not be doing the same move while leg hooping. Each leg will be moving differently from the other one. If you do the same movement with both legs the hoop will keep falling to your knee caps. Watch my tutorial. It has a lot of details and tips. It is part of a series on leg hooping that I have done. I will be loading the last two tutorials for this series this week.
Above all else, have patience with yourself. Leg hooping takes lots of practice. It took me a long time to learn it.
Let me know how you're doing with it. It also helps to make a video of yourself doing it and then you can see what you're doing wrong. If you want me to help you troubleshoot, send me your video. You can also post it on my website. I'd be happy to help you.
