In this tutorial I teach the Hidemasa Hook (often simply referred to at “Hook”) yo-yo trick. A very flashy and satisfying to land laceration style trick.
Throw a breakaway.
Practice popping the yo-yo into the air.
Continue practicing popping the yo-yo into the air while whipping the string around it.
When you’re able to hop the yo-yo up and whip the string around the yo-yo without the yo-yo going anywhere but up or down, you are ready to start putting your freehand index finger into the loop you are whipping around.
Bind and catch.
