Yoyo Presentation For School

52

In my Language Arts class during the 7th grade, we received an assignment to do a presentaion about something we are passionate about.  We are to research the origin, history and find someone who is our role model sharing the same passion.  I chose to do my assignment on Yoyos.

I showed a picture of myself to the class and talked about how I got started.  Cudos to my friend Gabe and Michael who inspired me to pick up the hobby.  They were the ones that showed me tricks and impressed me with thier yoyo skills.

In the presentation I also explained the origin of the yoyo.  Did you know the earliest version of the yoyo went as far back as 1000BC?   Find out more about my presentation by watching the video below.

Cold Fusion Yoyo Trick Tutorial

52

This is my first tutorial video, the Cold Fusion Yoyo Trick tutorial.  To make is easier to learn, the steps are broken down by moves.  In the video I used a yoyo by Magic Yoyo named N6.

To execute the trick follow the steps below:

Step#1:  Go into a “Double or Nothing” and put both your thumbs inside the inner string so the yoyo will thread through the strings easier.

Step#2: Thread the yoyo into the first outside string above it.

Step#3:  Thread the yoyo into the next outside string again, but this time pull you non-yoyo hand index finger out of the string, This will lead you to a 1 1/2 mount.

Step#4:  Throw the yoyo over to your non yoyo hand, bring it back, then do another rotation to your right.

Final Step:  Do two rotations to your left, land in a “Trapeze,” and end the trick with your favorite bind.

Watch the video for the complete trick and yoyo movements.

BAC Yoyo Competion 2015

Lorenzyo Cubing feeling out the stage by doing some tricks at the BAC 2015 yoyo competition.

This was the first ever yoyo competition I witnessed, the Bay Area Classic 2015 (BAC 2015).  Prior to coming to this event, I did not even know we were coming here.  All I knew was we were driving to San Francisco and my parents told me to bring my yoyo and my Gopro.  What a nice surprise!

Once at the event, I started to see all the cool people doing tricks.  We met JD from YoyoBestBuy.com who so happen to my neighbor.  Well we live in a neighboring city.  So it is close enough for me 🙂

To top off the whole experience, I got to meet Brandon Vu in person.  That was such a great time and Brandon is a very cool and approachable person.
