One-Handed Bind

[vc_row type=”in_container” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ width=”1/1″][vc_video link=”https://youtu.be/72jC6J3mR-Q” align=”center”][vc_column_text]In this video I show you how to do the one-handed bind. It’s fairly similar to the laceration bind but instead of whipping the string into the gap of the yo-yo, you yank on the string, which caused the yo-yo to fly into the string, binding it. It’s a pretty fun and solid way to end your tricks.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner top_padding=”20″][vc_column_inner column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ width=”1/2″][vc_column_text][button color=”extra-color-1″ hover_text_color_override=”#fff” size=”large” url=”http://mikemonty.com/learn/yo-yo-crash-course/yo-yo-crash-course-advance-yo-yo-tricks/the-hidemasa-hook/” text=”<<PREVIOUS” color_override=””][/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

Showing off the better put together set

I spent some time on Sunday organizing my garage and moved the set from the corner to a different wall. Mostly so I could use the corner bench for working on stuff and get my tools organized. Also wanted to get the set put together since I’m filming so much. Now it just needs some polishing. Maybe some fan art? 😉
