35. find a yo-yo that you can’t play well at all. play it exclusively for a month.
This thread is for people who want to try going a month playing a yoyo they don’t play well at all. The idea was inspired by rule #35 in Ed Haponik’s rules for yoyoers. http://kinopah.blogspot.com/2009/11/yo-yo-70-throw-today-throw-forever.html
The first thread about it on YYE is here: http://yoyoexpert.com/forums/index.php/topic,9395.0.html
There’s already some who have answered the call. Come along for the ride, if you like.
A few clarifications:
Doesn’t matter what yoyo you use, just so long as you can learn something and have a meaningful experience with it.
You don’t have to start on any particular day. Start your month whenever.
Don’t be afraid to share your thoughts, feelings, fears, triumphs, pics, vids, etc. I don’t know about anyone else, but I wanna hear and see it all. One of things I love about yoyoing is the people and how they relate to our strange little habit.
If you’re Ed Haponik, you’re welcome to participate. But you will probably have to tie some twine to a rock and throw with that for a month to see any real benefits.
The only thing exclusive about this exercise is the yoyo. So, anyone and everyone can participate.
If you get a new yoyo for Christmas, take a break and throw it. I mean, it’s Christmas. And it’s not like you get new yoyos every day.
