Step 1: Step 1
Once you are prepared start by either throwing the hacky sack into the air or by volleying the hacky sack with your foot.
Hint: You’ll want the hacky sack to be at chest to shoulder height allowing for ample time to set up.
Step 2: Step 2
After hitting or throwing the hacky sack into the air prepare for the clipper by sliding your dominant foot backwards about one and a half feet. Simultaneously you will want to bend the knee of you non-dominant leg allowing ample room for the next step.
Step 3: Step 3
As the hacky sack passes your midriff this is your cue to move your dominant leg behind and across your bent non-dominant leg.
Hint: Balance is very important because at this point you will be in a semi-seated position and will also be supported by only your non-dominant leg. The first couple times this motion will feel strange.
Step 4: Step 4
As the hacky sac falls to knee level slowly lift your foot and make contact with the hacky sack.
Hint: this is the hardest step to execute. Don’t get discouraged.
Step 5: Step 5
After hitting the hacky sac return you your dominant foot to it original position and
Unbend your non-dominant knee.
Step 6: Congratulations
You have now completed the clipper! have a hacktastic day!
