Hoop Tutorials I WANT to Learn: Circus Style Moves w/ Jon Coyne

This morning, Jon Coyne was the featured tutorial of the day on hooping.org. Usually, I placidly watch the featured tutorial while sipping my morning coffee and thinking "yep, that's cool...anyway, next link," but after watching these I honestly found myself wanting to get up and hoop! Then I checked out his YouTube channel and saw the treasure trove of crazy circus style moves he has listed. Win!

Pizza Toss + Sommersault Catch

In the past few weeks I have successfully done the pizza toss a few times, so it gives me hope for this move. (But, I love that he has links to the 'prerequisties' in the video. Total bonus points on that one, Jon.)

Foot Hooping in Lasso Above Back While Bent Over*
(* awesome move...but it needs a new name.  Lasso back? Lasso bridge? <--- Because your body looks like a bridge while on the ground?)

Anyone else as inspired as I am? Now to navigate the wet grass outside to get a few of these crazy moves going!

I was talking to someone the other day how they have difficulty with the pizza toss. I guess after watching that guys videos, I'm tossing it more out than above.

yeah it was really hard for me to not flail it halfway across the yard when I first started. I still don't have it 100%, but it's getting there...

It was really encouraging to hear because the girl I was talking to had been hooping for 4 years. I just don't like it (so far) compared to other tosses.
