Tricks Andre invented


#1

Not sure if i posted this in the right section, but i just wanted to know what tricks, if any, that Andre teaches in his videos that he invented himself. I read that he invented hour glass and ladder escape, i wanted to know if thats true, and if he invented any others.


#2

Hour Glass and ladder escape are true.

He also invented And Whut if I’m not mistaken.


(Halbach) #3

I believe Gyroscopic Flop is his as well.


#4

Thumb grind and variation of it.


(Q) #5

Nope. Doctor Popular. The one and only.


#6

That was Jason Lee


#7

Not contradicting anyone here, but if he invented “hour glass” why does he say in the video I think it is called hour glass because of the shape here?

It seems like he would say, I named it hour glass because…

Pretty sure he invented double suicide and grind trough green triangle.


#9

I wondered that same thing


#10

And whuit is jason Lee, Hour Glass is some other guys.

Plan D, and Ladder Escape I believe.


#12

Plan D for sure, though I question ladder escape.


(M²) #13

He invented ladder escape. He said it himself.


#14

We need andre, the yoyoexpert himself to reply on this thread.

It is always hard to say you ‘invented’ a trick as odds are someone else did something similar messing around at some point, etc.

With that said though I did ‘invent’ and name the following tricks on the site:
Ladder Escape
Hour Glass
Plan D

I was one of the first to be able to pull off more then 10 Gyroscopic Flops in a row but didn’t invent the trick itself - that was Doc Pop.

I popularized thumb grinds but again wasn’t necessarily the ‘first’ person to ever do them on earth. :wink:
