“Harmony…or else” was the slogan of my old Aikido dojo. It’s actually emblazoned on a sweatshirt we did (with a graphic of me getting SLAMMED). I liked it for the name of this trick (which is a series of “fake regens” into trapeze stall), because pretty much any hiccup will cause the yoyo to flip and the spin direction to go all crazy.” – Ed
Yoyo used is a No Jive.
Song is “Say The Word” by Echo Chamber Rope Trick.
“This came RIGHT out of Drew’s trick, Shuvit Suicide, in which he used a twisted up Trapeze to swing a Suicide loop around laterally. I’ve never seen anyone do something like that, so I tried to apply it to a Kickflip and change the catching hand at the same time. On a good day, you can really get the yo-yo spinning with that diagonal tre-flip kind of motion, but it’s not easy. Regardless, it’s neat to go from a Trapeze Stall to a Man-Bro Stall through a suicide.” – Ed
Yoyo used is the No Jive 3-in-1.
Song is “Coffin Nails” by Waylon Thornton.
“Who doesn’t love planet hops? But why do they involve so few hands, right? If you’re tired of sticking one in a pocket or gripping a pen Bob Dole-style, this is a pretty solid way to engage that useful free hand.” – Ed
Yoyo used is the No Jive by Tom Kuhn.
