Throw Revolution, together with us, will be releasing a set of 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 second trick in the Trick Tutorials line-up, we have a classic string trick that every advanced Spinner must know, the Kwijibo! The Kwijibo was a trick that was created back in the late 1990s by players over in the USA. Back then, string tricks were still open to lots of creativity and one of the earliest string tricks was the Kwijibo. This trick got its name from an early Simpsons episode, when Homer made up this word during a Scrabble game and tried to convince everyone it was a real word.
The Kwijibo basically takes 3 different mounts and puts them all together. The Trapeze, the 1.5 sidestyle mount and the Double or Nothing. Hoping from one mount to the other makes up the Kwijibo trick.
Well, if you don't already know this trick, give it a try and add it into your arsenal of tricks! If you have any questions, you can 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 trick!
Have fun practicing, and keep spinning!
