Dick Stohr: Hi! I'm Dick Stohr. I'm that yo-yo guy. We've been talking about the basics of yo-yo and how to get started safely, so you can do the very basic stuff correctly and build on it to do advanced tricks. What I want to show you now is a series that starts with a trick called Breakaway. Remember, when I showed you the Power Throw, you cock your wrist, you raise your elbow and you throw by snapping this way? Now what we're going to do is turn the elbow out, and we're going to throw it out to the side, bring it around in front and when it gets about, waist high on the other side, give it a tug and it comes back, so this is called Breakaway. And when you can do the breakaway consistently, I'm going to put my finger out there as a mark. You see when the string gets to just about that place is when I give it a tug back. Now this time, since I am consistently doing the Breakaway, I'm going to push my finger into the string path and it comes over the finger and lands on the string that's called the Man on the Flying Trapeze. Watch. Man on the flying trapeze. Notice that I catch the yo-yo just a few inches away from my finger, not in the middle of the string because it's a whole lot easier to catch it and close to my finger than it is over here. That's easier to miss, if I have got lot of string between my finger and the yo-yo. So, what I try and do is move my throw hand -- not this hand, but the throw hand, so that the yo-yo is just a couple of inches away from my finger and that's how I get it to land on the string consistently. So, now we've got Breakaway, we've got man on the flying trapeze. How about man on the flying trapeze with a somersault? So, I mounted on the string, I pushed my finger into the string this way and I do a somersault with the yo-yo. Push it right into the middle of the string and it comes right over the top just like so. Now, the other thing you can do from this position in the Breakaway throw is the Around the World. Remember, the Around the World where I did the forward pass around? Now, you are going to do the power throw and have the yo-yo sleep all the way around the circle and so you can do a front mount around the world from a forward pass. So, you can do the side mount around the world by starting with the breakaway. We've covered several yo-yo tricks here, but they all build on the beginning, which is the Breakaway. And next, we'll go into some other tricks, which will get you along the path to doing more of the basic stuff, so that you can build it into combinations and have more fun playing with a yo-yo.
