Throw Revolution X Spinworkx Trick Tutorials #4 - Kamikaze Whip

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 forth trick in the Trick Tutorials line-up, we have a classic string trick element that every advanced Spinner must know. The sidestyle Mach 5 mount, or better known as the Kamikaze Mount, was made famous by tricks like Kamikaze. So back in the early 2000s, a quicker way to get into the Kamikaze Mount was thought up, and the Kamikaze Whip was featured in tricks like Kamikaze 2: Yellow Airplanes and other advanced tricks from that era.

The Kamikaze Whip is getting into a regular Trapeze, then wrapping the string around your throw-hand index to 'whip' the string loop around the yo-yo (on the Trapeze), getting into the Kamikaze Mount. This trick looks really cool, and is very fun to do. Practice it, and you'll get it in no time!

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!
