Don’t worry about that, we believe you can become one of the best yoyoer in the world in the future, you just need to keep practicing. Until then, you’ll need to know some basics.

Q: What Are 1A Yoyo Tricks l (Aka String Tricks)?
1A yoyo trick, also known as a String Trick, is a trick in which one yoyo lands on the string. Yoyos intended for 1A are wide and sleep for a long time, making certain maneuvers easier. While advanced 1A yoyos are also made to play unresponsively, learning the fundamentals of 1A on a conventional responsive yoyo is preferable.

Q:What Does It Mean For A Yoyo To Play Unresponsive?
It will not return to your hand if you pull up on an unresponsive yoyo. Many 1A yoyos arrive unresponsive to allow for more difficult tricks. You’ll need to learn how to rebind an unresponsive yoyo before you can play with it. Otherwise, the yoyo will not return.

Q:What Are 2A Two-Handed Yoyo Tricks?
Two-Handed Yoyoing is the polar opposite of 1A style yoyoing. 2A yoyo tricks, unlike 1A string tricks, never land on the string. Instead, they frequently entail looping or other repeating actions. While this method will eventually require two yoyos at once, it is best to practice these looping stunts one hand at a time.

Q:How Can I Learn To Yoyo With Two Hands?
Learning a trick with one hand after mastering it with the other is like learning it from scratch. Some people believe that their opposite hand is incapable of learning tricks. This is not true, but it does take longer. Finally, doing tricks with both hands will feel like you’re beginning over, but anyone can learn two-handed tricks with enough time and perseverance.

Q:What Are 3A Yoyo Tricks?
3A yoyoing is essentially 1A (String Tricks) with two yoyos in each hand. While 3A yoyo tricks may appear intimidating at first, learning them becomes progressively addictive and fascinating once you’ve mastered a few.

Q:What Are 4A Offstring Yoyo Tricks?
4A yoyo tricks, commonly known as Offstring Yoyo Tricks, are yoyo tricks in which the yoyo is detached from the string. 4A is a fun style to learn and perform in. Offstring techniques are among of the simplest to learn if you have the correct yoyo.

Q:What Are 5A Free hand Yoyo Tricks?
The yoyo string is not attached to your finger in 5A, or Freehand yoyoing. Instead, the string is connected to a counterweight, such as a dice or a bouncy ball, which allows the yoyo and counterweight to move freely at the same time.

Q:What Are Picture Tricks?
Any yoyo tricks in which the string is utilized to form a picture is known as a Picture Trick. The two easy yoyo tricks that we all know well - Rock the Baby and the Eiffel Tower are very good examples of picture tricks. Picture tricks are fantastic for beginners to use to perfect their skills because they need a long slumber.
