Throw Revolution X Spinworkx Trick Tutorials #3 - Suicide

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 third trick in the Trick Tutorials line-up, we have yet another classic string trick that every advanced Spinner must know, the Suicide! Suicides are not something new in the skill toy world. Suicides have been done in things like Diabolo and even kendama, and was translated into a yo-yo trick way back around the 1999-2001 era. Players in the USA were messing around with tricks and Paul Escolar, trick innovator, realised that instead of always holding onto the yo-yo string, you could actually release it and that was how the yo-yo Suicide was born!

The Suicide is essentially just getting the yo-yo onto the string into a Trapeze and swinging it over your throw-hand and catching the loop back again. Sounds and seems easy, but alot of practice is needed to perfect the Suicide trick.

Well, if you don't already know this trick, give it a try and add it into your freestyle (if you dare)! 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!
