I’ve been yoyoing for basically 9 years now. I realized recently that I have down the yoyo “Fundementals”. I’ve got a good throw. I’ve got good control over the yoyo and string. I land my tricks most of the time.
I’m strong on my fundamental skills.
However, I’ve realized that the reason I’m not really getting better is that my trick knowledge is stuck back in 2004 when I started. I see better yoyoers do cool tricks and I realize now that I can do them, I just need to take the time to learn.
I’m weak on skills knowledge.
As a result, I’ve recently refocused my yoyo training towards learning and developing new tricks, instead of fine tuning what I already know. And its been fantastic. I think I’ve improved more in the last 2 months then in the last 2 years.
So, a question to think about. Where are you? Do you have more Fundamental skill? or more skill knowledge?
