“Hocker” is the German word for stool, so the english translation is sport-stooling. The sport originates from Germany but the idea of doing tricks and moves with stools is as old as the stool itself. But normal stools are not made for tricks and moves so they break easily. This was the case up until 2006 when two German brothers majoring in product design created the sporthocker, specifically designed for sport.
