Learn how to do the Around the World yo-yo trick from 4-time US National Yo-Yo champion and 2006 World Yo-Yo champion Paul Yath in this Howcast video.


The trick I'm showing you today is called Around the World. With the yo-yo in your palm, you want to turn your wrist over. You want to toss the yo-yo in front of you, and when it hits the end of the string you want the yo-yo to carry, and the momentum to carry it around your body. like so, this direction.

To get the yo-yo back to your hand, you want to turn your wrist and have it come back to your palm, like so. And with this trick you can do different variations, the right side, left side, turn your body.

You can set goals for yourself too such as doing maybe multiple Around the Worlds, do like ten in a row to challenge yourself. I'll show you ten in a row right now. Two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, and one more, just for you. That's called Around the World.
