hey so i really want to make tricks now because i have a mass amount of tricks i already know. i need help on how i can construct a good trick. im not talking competition wise, but something that plays good. i want that a-rt flow and i want some advice for that too. thanks!
Learning the wrist mount and the double or nothing can lead to trick innovation. I’ve experimented with those mounts and I’ve came up with a few new tricks. Chopsticks can also lead to some nice tricks.
yea i know those and quite a few mounts already. i just want advice on where to maneuver the yoyo, what to do with the strings, should i roll or pop out of this string?, etc. thanks though!
Question: Have you tried stringing tricks that you know together to make combos?
I suggest both. Popping the you and catching it with slack is a good one.
yea usually when i throw i just mash all the tricks i know in one throw.
Another question: How long have you been pursuing this as a serious hobby?
i usually just throw in my free time. i have school n all but its w/e. been throwing for almost a year now
Nice. I think learning some easy combos would be helpful to learning harder combos.
yea right now i just want my style to be simple and clean
Okay, first understand that Chuck and Jens have been doing this for several years. They are on a completely different level.
Another question: do you understand elements? Like, can you dissect tricks that you know to make or embellish other tricks?
yea i understand that the guys at a-rt have decades of experience altogether, and i completely respect that, but yea i can take some elements and sorta dissect them i guess. i dont really want anything that techy though
I get it now. You want to learn simple tech tricks. I think I know a few.
yea i just want some fun and somewhat intermediate tricks. not looking for those hard competition bangers though.
The Wasabi GT is a good one. You can find it on Yotricks. https://youtu.be/5JLBTS0B3Lw
That’s fine. You do you.
Pro tip: Practice repeaters. You can even make up your own. Back to this in a second though.
When you’re learning a trick, you usually have to break it up into steps. The key to making your style smooth, is learn a trick, and then learn how to smooth out those transitions between each broken down step of the trick. The key is repetition, practice practice practice. That is why I suggest learning some repeaters, or make your own! Anything that you can do over and over and over during one throw will help you develop flow.
been following yotricks since i started. learning a few of their combos. thanks btw.
I would say pick up a responsive yo-yo. Those really do help with the flow.
thanks for all the advice! im not really looking into competition as of now, but i just really want to treat throwing as more of a pleasure.
