This paddle and break move is one of the most requested tutorials I have had recently.
I have to say that I have not been to a class with Baxter, whom I believe to be the pioneer of the paddling technique, this is a rhythm that I came to understand in my own body.
I had even thought of clearing my schedule and flying all the way to North Carolina to the Hoop Path Retreat just to get a glimpse of Baxter doing his thing in real time. Sadly that wasn’t possible so I had to figure it out myself. This is a variation of paddling that is a left and right rotation with breaks. This is just one form of paddling with breaks and will likely open up new patterns and rhythm in your hooping.
For more inspiration check out some of the videos I watched to help me understand and teach the basic symmetrical paddle and break move.
