Hey all! So, many of you are well aware that everyone has different methods for practicing tricks, and especially practicing freestyles.
There are quite a few different ways to go about it and different methods work for different humans.
One interesting method that I have seen for a little while now is “shadow yo-yoing”.
I first saw this at worlds 2011 when I noticed some Japanese players practicing outside the contest area, with music in their ears, and doing obvious yoyo motions, but with no yoyo or string. I later saw this same method during live streams of some Japanese regional contest, where players would use the stage, and basically do their entire freestyles during the free stage practice time, with no yoyo or string.
Curiously, I notice that I have never seen this being done by anyone other than numerous Japanese competitors.
So I’m curious, have any of you tried this “shadow yo-yoing” before? And also I ask, why might you think it is that Japanese players use this method, but from what I can see, no other countries players do this?
Interesting is it not?
