Kwyjibo


#1

I’ve been trying for a while now to do kwyjibo. I can’t get the transition between one and a half mount and double or nothing. When I do it the yoyo goes on the two strings of the double or nothing without passing a second time over my none-throwing hand first finger.
Thanks

It shouldn’t pass around. And there’s no actual 1.5 mount. :wink: Something is going amiss! Don’t suppose you can film yourself messing it up, eh? I know most people don’t like to share their mistakes, but that’s backwards if you ask me! Show the mistakes, says I!

I found that one the second hop it helps me to only use my throw hand and put out the side to get the yoyo to hop up. Then just uncross and keep you eye on the string. Also best advice and one c an give or get is just practice practice and practice. Keep ur head up you will get the hang of it.

I think there’s something more fundamental that’s going wrong; but assuming you’re doing the moves correctly, the biggest thing for the first pop is instead of thinking “land on a string after the pop”, think “chop the string underneath the yoyo”. For the second one, think “spread hands apart to pull the string taut; the yoyo will have no choice but to land on the string”.

You never actually “aim” for the string that the yoyos are landing on; assuming no strings are too close to one-another, physics will force the yoyo to land if you apply tension.

I figured my problem but I have another one. To land on the right string on the double or nothing.

Sorry, technical problem

Two things:

  1. You need to get the other string segment(s) as far away from the target one as possible. It’s quite difficult to get the knack of, so practice is the only solution! Most people get it back right to the base of the forefinger. I got in the habit of putting it right over the back of my hand! Not considered canon, but it works for me!
  1. When you spread your hands apart and make the string segments taut, you will force the yoyo down onto the correct string. As long as no other strings are in the way, this technique will ensure the landing  “just works”.

I have that same problem too. What I do sometimes is: I make sure I spread the strings a little be farther apart before I make the second hop. Then you hit the string with the tip of your finger when you uncross your hands. This may help. Just know that it doesn’t always work.
