A few questions for you!
1.) Something I see discussed often is tricks that click (meta tricks) vs. tricks that innovate, and how the competitive sphere has influenced the kinds of routines that players perform. As both a competitor and a judge, do you feel that the scoring system as it currently exists stands to hinder the long term development of yoyoing as it penalizes players for taking creative risks (and instead rewards them for established tricks that are known to click)? Why or why not in your experience?
2.) I personally have always believed that practice doesn’t make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect. From this perspective, how you practice is just as important as the fact that you do, and it’s something I’ve tried to implement into much of my life. As an experienced player, what is an element of “perfect practice” that you feel many players overlook or don’t pay enough mind to?
3.) In your opinion what is the quintessential trick to represent modern yoyoing (if you had to choose one to describe the sport as a whole, in its current form).
Thanks for reading! Looking forward to your responses.
