What is your style, and who is the most influential thrower to you at the moment


(WildCat23) #1

So, basically as the thread title states, what is your style like (Whips, slacks, tech, crazy fast?) and who is the most influential person/people to it at the present time?

My style includes a lot of slacks and suicides, as well as grinding, smooth transitions from mount to mount, and occasionally speed. I also like chopsticks.

I’d say the most influential people for me, right now are Johnnie DelVallie and Janos.

Tech/fast occasional flow. You might say that i have an Americanized version of the standard japanese style. Id saw its more creative that say, hiroyuki, even if i dont have half the skill he does.

I make up super fast combos that have little slacks throws in. Some whips, but mostly tech. I too, do a bit of chopsticks.

Influences: Hiroyuki Suzuki, Harrison Lee, Zach Gormely, Anthony Rojas, Charles Haycock

Overall favorite: Harrison Lee

My style is constantly evolving. I’d say it includes a little bit of everything; I have some speed tricks, some slack tricks, some whips. I do use a lot of hops though. In my opinion, my tricks are sort of the yoyo equivalent of doodles on paper, I just kind of do what I feel like doing at the time, trying to see what I can come up with.
As for influences… I can’t really name any specific influences.

I spend so much time with Odon Alberto jr that our styles are quite similar (1A)


#5

Lately I think I’ve been most influenced by Seth Peterson, both in terms of trick elements and trying to emulate the overall flow of his tricks. I don’t know how well it comes across in what I actually do, but that’s where I’ve been getting inspiration.

Mine is 1a, Jensen Kimmits my influence…

I want to be good at 2a and 4a.

For those Shu Takada and Ben Conde are my influences…
