Sorry if I mention a competing store. But they don’t sell anything online.
Learning Express in Roseville hosted 2A National Champion Joseph Harris for 2A lessons. I paid for lessons for myself and my son. $10, each. Cheap. Totally worth it. Small group too, just myself, my son and 3 other kids. Excellent ratio.
I bought some Unleashed yoyos, which through my limited experience with 2A, are my favorites, but these were for my son. I bought a single green one for myself. I already have a red, blue, light blue and white one(all paper caps), and I recently had to go elsewhere to mail order a second white one with paper caps, so that’s on the way. My son chose to go with 2 orange ones with the plastic graphic caps.
We didn’t go over a whole lot. Forward pass for a foundation for basic inside loops. Hop the fence, which I’m having difficulties with, but that’s OK, I got what I need to work on it. Cross-over, outside loops were covered too as well a around the world, which is the basis for cross-over.
2A is so radically different than 1A style. The videos here are good, but honestly, if you can get help from someone in person on this style, I strongly recommend it. Get your foundation solid and set up properly so you can avoid bad habits that can be difficult to break. Then, use the videos to re-inforce and then expand upon what you’ve learned.
I’m feeling good now. I can do 1A. I can do a little 4A and 5A. 2A, I’m feeling good about now, but this one is going to take some serious time and effort, which I’m willing to put in. 3A, I think I’m gonna be on my own for that, but that’s OK. My objective to have some competency in the 5 major styles took a major leap forward today. I can work on 1A, 4A and 5A on my own for a while. Now with a kick-start on 2A, that’s just more to add into my practice sessions.
Sorry, no “blog” entry. Been busy. If it’s “wanted”, or “Desired”, PM me to motivate me.
