Learn About Yo-Yo’s
Hey there, welcome to what is essentially the “all about yo-yos” section of my website. If you don’t know me, my name is Michael Montgomery, I go by MikeMonty online. I have been yo-yoing since I was thirteen years old in 2003. In that time I have written many articles on yo-yoing, recorded video and written tutorials, and have learned quite a lot more about this little handheld toy than I even thought was available to be learned.
Recently I began organizing that content into this Learn about yo-yos section of the website. This is an ongoing process, sometime old links slip in during the process of importing and updating old articles to fit the new site design or to reflect modern views on various aspects of yo-yoing.
If you’re brand new to the idea of yo-yoing, I welcome you to a really fun hobby. It means a lot of different things to many different people. Some see it as a way to express there competitiveness, others use it as an avenue for entrepreneurship, some entertain. Many learn to challenge themselves, some just pick it up because it’s unique and helps them in turn feel unique. Whatever your reason for being here, welcome! If you are so new that you need to learn about the correct way to put a yo-yo on your hand (there is a correct way) then check out the yo-yo basics section below.
