Overhead Hand Pass
Taken from Chapter 4 of
An Instructional DVD by Peachysteve
We previously looked at the vertical hand pass.
We can also pass from hand to hand horizontally, above the head.
This move is slightly different to the vertical version.
I'll show this starting from hand two, which for me is the left hand as the hoop is circling in a clockwise direction.
You can see the same position from the front and above.
|I'm waiting for the space to come to the front.
|As the space comes forward I bring hand one upward.
Palms are facing each other.
|I make a prayer shape.
The hoop passes across the base of my hands.
|The hoop is now on hand one.
I drop hand two out of the hoop.
I can keep hooping on this hand or prepare to pass again.
|I'm now waiting for the space to come overhead.
|I put hand two up into the space.
Both palms are facing forward.
|Hand two takes over from hand one.
I'm back where I started.
|Here you can see each exchange position.
Note that my elbows remain relaxed throughout.
|Here you can see the move run from both angles.
