Throw Revolution X Spinworkx Trick Tutorials #20 - Yuuki Transition



Throw Revolution, together with us, will be releasing a set of 20 Trick Tutorials to get players, new or old, honed in for freestyles. This set of tricks to come include various modern elements that is worth a learn to rack up points during contests.

The trick-set for these trick tutorials was thought up by 2011 World Yo-Yo Champion, Marcus Koh, and the elements in these short tricks are still used by Marcus in his contest freestyles.

For the Twentieth (and final) trick (for now) in the Trick Tutorials line-up, we have an entry-level 'Tech' trick that every yo-yo player should learn. This trick will definitely add something to your combo or when you are creating tricks, and if you can develop your own variation from this move, even better! Presenting the Yuuki Transition.

Yuuki Spencer needs no introduction. Anyone who has been playing with yo-yos for awhile must know him. Yuuki has developed and pushed technical 1A tricks back in the early 2000s, and up till today, comes up with fresh and exciting new concepts every now and then. Yuuki is a 2x World 1A Champion, and definitely belongs in anyone's list of favorite players.

In the trick tutorial video, Marcus did a great job in breaking down each step of this trick, so we won't try to describe it with words. It may look a bit complex when done quickly, but break it down step by step and you'll be able to get it. Technical 1A play is really cool to watch as it is just amazing how these players can think of such tricks. When Yuuki did this trick back in the day, it astounded everyone. Now, years later, people have finally caught on to this trick and can finally do it with more ease.

Definitely learn this trick to add to your combos or to amaze fellow yo-yo players! Do remember that if you have any questions, you can always hit us up on Facebook, Instagram, drop us an email, or come down and ask us (or the Throw Revolution team) on how to perfect this (or any other) trick!

Thanks for following us throughout all these 20 tricks that we have done together with Throw Revolution. As always, remember to have fun practicing, and keep spinning!

Throw Revolution X Spinworkx Trick Tutorials #19 - Horizontal Braintwister



Throw Revolution, together with us, will be releasing a set of 20 Trick Tutorials to get players, new or old, honed in for freestyles. This set of tricks to come include various modern elements that is worth a learn to rack up points during contests.

The trick-set for these trick tutorials was thought up by 2011 World Yo-Yo Champion, Marcus Koh, and the elements in these short tricks are still used by Marcus in his contest freestyles.

For the Nineteenth trick in the Trick Tutorials line-up, we have a Horizontal-style trick that was made popular in the late 2000s. Almost every contest player in the late 2000s had to/tried to include a Horizontal style trick in their freestyles to rack up the points, and one of those tricks was the Horizontal Braintwister as seen here.

Horizontal style tricks were made popular by 4x 1A World Champion, Hiroyuki Suzuki, and can been seen in practically every freestyle these days.

There issn't much to say or describe about the Horizontal Braintwister. One of the main tips that you must know before attempting this trick is that before doing it horizontally, you must be able to do this entire trick from a regular Trapeze before even considering going horizontal. Practice makes perfect, so keep going at it. When you are ready to take it horizontal, try the trick at progressive angles before getting it completely flat and horizontal.
 
The Horizontal Braintwister is a really cool trick that can be done not only in contest freestyles, but during public performances as well. It is a very impressive looking trick that is bound to amaze spectators seeing modern yo-yoing as compared to yo-yoing from the past.

To end this Trick Tutorial off, do remember that if you have any questions, you can always hit us up on Facebook, Instagram, drop us an email, or come down and ask us (or the Throw Revolution team) on how to perfect this (or any other) trick!

With that, have fun practicing, and keep spinning!
