MoonageMin's Trick-a-Week 2021 [Week #47 - Dr Strange]

TaW #9 Cross Capture

Its Friday. Time to learn a new element to add in our combos.
I stumbled across this a few weeks ago And thought it was very cool.
The basic idea is to pop the yoyo up into the string and cross your hands under it as it comes down. FrontStyle and SideStyle!
This week’s challenge if you don’t know this learn it. If you can pop it up and catch the yoyo let’s see a repeater combo.

Well done, i like the trapeze…i noticed that too. I’ve started to land these regularly now… but I’m not sure what to do with them in a combo. I think using the pop into the trapeze is going to be in my next combo.

So here is my repeater in FS. I love the pop up. Once i can control hitting or missing… or even getting into the trapeze vs landing the capture, then i think I’ll be able to use this in combos

I like your idea…i ran with it. If you do the pop and then treat it like a eli hop once it passes the string… pop up with your nth middle, then use the index or thumb to control the eli hop…i can land in a front mount every time. Very cool :sunglasses:

Having said that this isn’t cross capture, i think that’s just a entrance into trapeze or front mount.

I call this “El Capitán, a repeater”… let’s face it he’s kind of a repeater :wink: love you moons.

Dude, love the repeater, what a name!

So recently I started liking #thingsthatrepeat if it, after repeating a few times, ends in a very similar element but slightly different so that it flows into it but ends with a twist.

A little suggestion I had in mind.

L :heart: v e you too man

My point exactly… holy cow dude! That’s genius!
I love it. I will work on The pop, front mount flip onto a SBM…
Edit… so instead of a repeater with the pops. On the second pop instead of poping i went right into SBM and it’s very cool… very speedy looking. I’ll try to get a video tonight.

Santa Mucca (Holy Cow) @MoonageMin @AKYOYOMIKE I’ve watched all your videos and man, what a great discussion you’ve had, starting from an “little” trick you guys came up with great combos! These last 15ish posts are the exact essence of what TaW is about. Congrats.

I’m not done yet… I’ll soon rise again and (try) beat this challenge!!
I keep seeing the development of all of you. Terrific!

Trying to get a better way to record, I was using a pile of paper and some trinkets to balance the phone, and one day my phone fell so I stopped with this super home made record. Hahahhah…

So i finally hit the cross capture for a repeater in the FS opposite direction. Very challenging cause it basically wants to bind unlesss your clean.

I’ve wanted to learn these vertical type pops for a while. This is really a cool element that can fit anywhere into a combo.

Hope you’re feeling limber this week!

A nice, flashy weave trick with some quirky cross-armed moves! For a challenge this week, try to link 3 reps into a smooth repeater

Hmmmmmm. I don’t understand 100%, but if you ask to be “friend?” maybe that would work?
