Yo_shi started yoyoing May '07.


I've yo-yoed for nearly a year now. I have entered the US Massachusetts State Contest of 2008 and I entered the Trick Ladder in my age division (11-15) and I won 4th place out of 4 people. I recently competed at the 2008 Z-Games/Northeast Regionals. Again I competed in the Trick Ladder/Pick-Your-Trick. This time I won first place in my age division (16-29)! I'm pushing myself to get ready a 1A, 4A, and possibly a 5A freestyle for MAStates 2009. I going to do the best I can.

I've started a Yo-Yo School/Club at my local library. The library's has purchased ProJams, and we're having a blast! We're meeting every Tuesday and I'm teaching tricks. I'm running it similar to the A2Z Science and Learning Store in Northampton, MA.

I may also be known about these. WaspNest Counterweights I enjoyed making them and handing them out at NER 2008.

What do I do at the YoYoWiki?

  • Fix Typos
  • Upload Pictures of Yo-Yos and tricks
  • Add tricks to the Trick section
  • Made a template, Template:Infobox Tricks, thanks to the help of Madyoer. This should be handy for posting a picture of a trick and the info about it in a sidebox.

Current Favorite Yo-Yos

My first metal is a YoYoFactory F.A.S.T. 401SD. I won it at US Northeast Regional Contest in a raffle. I still amazed by it.

My favorite yo-yos include a YoYoJam K-OS, a YoYoFactory F.A.S.T. 401SD, and a hubstacked Duncan Freehand Zero.

For 5A or Freehand I prefer a siliconed recessed Duncan Freehand Zero with a "fng" finish.

Then for 2A or two-handed yo-yoing, I use two YoYoJam Sunset Trajectory NXGs (2 yo-yos, one half blue, one half green each)

For 4A or Offstring I like to use a YoYoJam Big Yo2.
