Disclaimer:Oh man that was a long ramble…I apologize LOL
I can actually really relate to this post because I like comparing myself LOL just for developmental purposes.
I only started yo-yoing 3 weeks ago so this might be kinda rough
Third day into yo-yoing i thought I wouldn’t be able to do anything but throw the yoyo down and catch it after.
Fourth day I dedicated an hour to catching the trapeze which was really just making my throw straight . Days after that it just became super consistent.
One week in I had started trying to figure out getting into mounts in a less noobish fashion and I dedicated a few days to learning the flashy front mount and split bottom mount
2 or maybe 1 1/2 Weeks In
I got an unresponsive yoyo Magic yoyo n12(Binds were life) and I decided to skip over certain tricks like UFO/PopTheClutch/Boingy Bong ( I hate this trick with a passion)
UFO I tried many times but I kinda smacked myself.
Pop The Clutch was irrelevant I don’t even know
Certain tricks that were for responsive yoyo’s didn’t really interest me
At that point I was like forget side mount stuff so I learned everything I could from a front mount
Brain Twister, Barrel Rolls, Front Flips, Back Flips, Mach 5, Rip chord, any other front mounty stuff, Picture Tricks but I didn’t spend a lot of time on Boingy-Boing cause god knows that trick was made by Satan.
Then focused on decent side mount stuff and practicing catching the string
It’s my third week right about now and in the last few days or so
I got Matrix, Buddhas Revenge, McBridge Roller Coaster and Cold Fusion (In that order) down to a consistency.
I also try to skin the gerbil now and then but I’m limit myself and I don’t have enough skill to pull it off with my particular yoyo( Maybe it’s my string IDK)
How I motivate myself is getting through this ridiculous trick list LOL and rewarding myself with a yoyo at the end of every tier.
I’m a quick visual learner and I really need to analyze certain movements like finger positioning , otherwise I won’t get the trick at all. I don’t know but I like making my tricks smooth before I move on to the next one. it’s not like I’m rushing through the trick list but I find that having a trick to learn while trying to smooth out the previous ones make it more fun especially if you get frustrated.
Well we’re at the same time span so I hope to hear from you soon maybe this will motivate ya to try to beat me
