Knowing I'm not the best hula hooper in the world can suck. On the contrary, each time I gain progress it feels amazing. Practicing, pondering, and finally accomplishing a trick is like no other feeling. Knee hooping came natural to my sister. She also was hooping on her hips while I was hooping on my waist when we first started. We grasp complete opposite tricks before one another, which makes it convenient when learning something new.
Within a year my posture has progressed significantly while pulling one leg out and keeping the hoop rotating on the other. I wish I could say I could pull it out and do the scorpion post like my sister, but for now I'm content with my progress.
I'd love to perform contortion in the circus. Doing a forearm stand is harder than it seems, but I was pleased with how flexible I already am and my strength. I'd love to get those legs all the way down! An example of a trick I grasped before my sister is foot hooping. I love doing a shoulder stand while foot hooping, I think it looks amazing.
