Love your comment
I’m not even comfortable considering myself “in the community” really. I tried making a video a couple of weeks ago for a friend and it took me about 2 hours to capture two tricks clean enough to share at all. More fun to just play that worry about that stuff.
How long have u been throwing?
I’m terrible for how long I’ve been throwing! I’ve committed to seeing how good I can get though. Learning new tricks every week
If you spend two hours just to get a clean clip done then you absolutely are part of the community!
That’s what most of us think but we are all 100% better than when we were learning a sleeper.
this is very, very true!
I can do a bind. That’s better than most of the gen pop
Since like 98 and the yoyo boom got me hooked yes long time now. And urself
That’s a start
Only a year
Wow that’s good. its amazing that yoyo is the oldest toy in the world so much history from weapons to skill toy
Not quite the oldest toy - the doll, for example, predates it by a solid stretch.
And the “weapon” origin is actually just a debunked marketing myth proliferated by Duncan as yo-yoing spread through the US.
But none of that makes yo-yoing’s history any less incredible or awesome.
To everyone saying “stick with it!”…I think that’s the key, and probably my biggest downfall with any skill based pursuit I get into.
It becomes incredibly difficult for me to stick with things once my motivation levels start to dip. I’m sure pretty much everyone is like this.
Yeah it’s really hard sometimes but you have to find something to spark that interest again. For me about the 6 month mark I started to get away from yoyoing and into cubing. Then I did lesson with Gentry and my motivation sparked again and has not stopped since!
I like your screenaname lol just saying!
Is that right. I was told that they were weapons from back then Filipino warriors used em. yes dolls are old as well
Anyone with children in there lives can tell you - dolls can be warrior weapons too
