We are back with another exciting entry to the Flow Arts Institute’s Tutsday archives!
This week, we have a clip from Kinetic Fire, featuring the talented Yo-Yoer, Aaron Simpson, aka Weebit, with a cool Yo-Yo trick called “The Bind”.
This trick can start a few different ways, but Weebit says the best way to enter is with a forward throw down to your side.
The second step is to curl the string around your finger, letting the Yo-Yo balance itself on the string, in a position known as the “Trapeze”.
Next, while letting the Yo-Yo roll up the string toward your stationary hand, throw the loop into the gap between the Yo-Yo and your hand to make it return to the your hand.
For the “Breakaway” version, which is with a side throw, you will want to land in a “Trapeze” and use a toss to an “Under Mount”, before proceeding with the trick, to avoid getting tangled in the string.
