Steve bags has assembled together a great compilation of videos from the last century of vintage hoop rolling, juggling and spinning. All these clips have been assembled from Juggling.tv and juggler.com.
Bags has launched a new blog, The Hoop Hub with online hoop tutorials, hoop articles and performance videos.
Big ring, big muscles, big skills.

This video begins by showing a kendama battle; a group of kendama enthusiasts throwing a series of increasingly complex tricks in a backyard competition. The small crowd explodes with excitement when the winner throws his final move, they celebrate together as if this was THE main event of the year. As a viewer, it is a unique glimpse into a very small world.
This is a collection of those awesome moments that happen when you are in the company of amazing people (and the camera just happens to be pointing in the right direction at the right time) Kyle Johnson makes the best videos, and I think he understands what this ‘ministry’ thing is all about better than we do.
Also, Canada boxes 🙂
If you’re in UK or Europe and into hooping there’s an event next weekend in Bristol, UK, the South West Hoop Conference, which is well worth checking out.
MoM dropped into part one today, and here’s our mini review. It was fab.
- Atmosphere – Really friendly and a lot of fun.
- Teaching – Super good, top quality international teachers.
- Food – Mmmmmm and lots of it included in the ticket price.
- Tea – Free and brewed properly (This get’s our vote).
We found out that there are some tickets still available for the second weekend, If you’re into hoop, it’s highly recommended, not cheap, but the money goes towards paying for excellent hoop teachers, which is always worth it in the long run.
Plus Ed is teaching a Waving (Wiggly Ed Dance) workshop next weekend and Mrs MoM is teaching a solo Charleston workshop next Sunday.
Edit, now with video.
Some new ideas with eightrings by Moon. Hope you like it..! thanks for watching!
In August 2011, Ryan Mellors, Pich, Pilolip and Okotanpe met together at the ‘Maison Des Jonglages” in Paris to try and solve a problem: contact juggling and manipulation performances often have a small visual effect, ideal for video but very difficult to play to a large stage or stadium venue. We wanted to create material which communicated large graphical effects to a distant crowd, and we developed 3 short ‘graphic manipulation’ choreographies which we are excited to be sharing with you now.
We feel this is a good first step in our ongoing collaboration.
