How To Do The Kwijibo Yo-Yo Trick

Next trick we are going to teach you today has a cool name. It's called Kwijibo and the trick itself is one of my favorite tricks. It's really cool looking. It's really stylish. If done well it's really smooth. It's definitely worth practicing. Let me show you what it looks like. Kwijibo, it actually starts with the 1 and a half mount, which we touched on in McBride Rollercoaster first and we also discussed in Buddha's Revenge. I really recommend learning those two tricks first they kind of build up to Kwijibo, especially Buddha's Revenge. Buddha's Revenge is kind of like, has quite a few of the moves and the feel in it. It's going to really help you when you start this trick. Kwijibo looks like this. Starts out like this, oh actually, starts out with a Trapeez (that's the middle of the trick). Starts on the Trapeez, you shoot up, you cross your hands, you shoot down, and you shoot into Trapeez. It's a cool looking trick. Let me do that again. It's like that if done really fast and smooth, definitely looks neat and fast. What you want to do. Starts with a Trapeez, to do the first part is a little tricky, this takes practice. What you do is you pop the Yo-Yo in the air like so, pops it straight up and you bring your throw hand straight across into it. So, watch what happens when I do this. I pop it up and I shoot my finger across and the Yo-Yo should land on the string. So, I'm actually going to do it now so you can see. Shoots across like so. My arms are crossed because I took my right hand and I brought it over. You'll notice this is actually a White Buddha Mount if I bring it back the other way. So, you can even practice getting into it if you want. From White Buddha, go over and then cross your hands. But the trick itself is done by popping it up and then bring your hand over and crossing your arms.

Part 2:
So get to this point first. Practice that once you get there it's kind of a similar motion to Buddha's Revenge you actually roll it you are going to roll the yo yo over your fingers but as you do so you uncross and recross your hands in one motion so it looks like this. I roll and I cross and uncross and recross again. So, let me show you again. So, its pop you roll and cross your hands like that. So, now your arms are crossed. You've got yo yo on a string here. This is the hardest part of the trick. You have to actually pop the yo yo into the air. And it's a similar motion to what you did when you first started it. You pop it up like that and bring your this time its your non throw hand pointer finger across and underneath the yo yo that lands it right into a double nothing. That's close to the end. So, we will start from the beginning again. Bring it across and do your roll so it's uncrossing and recrossing your hands and then I pop it up and bring your left non throw hand pointer finger directly underneath the yo yo just like so it should land in a double nothing. So, let me show you again it looks like this. Pop, cross, uncross,cross and shoot right underneath the yo yo. The last step is once you have the first two steps it makes this part easier you actually just pop it up again and land it into a trapeze. From there you dismount and catch the whole trick itself. I'll try and get it again for you. Slow down the video and watch it a couple times. Practice those moves it's going to really help you when you are practicing this trick. It is really important that you give this trick the time. It takes a while to learn but it is worth it.
