Clear Hip Circle

 

This skill is a modified version of the Back Hip Circle, and can be performed to its highest level, a Clear Hip Handstand.  It begins with a Cast, and forcefully holds a Hollow position while circling around the bar, with the hands (and bar) held at about the mid-thigh.  As the circle nears completion, the athlete forces the body away from the bar, ending in a support position, with the hips “clear” of the bar.  This skill is often called a Free Hip Circle.
