White Buddha Part 1:

Yo-Yo Trick

White Buddha Part 1:

Okay, next trick we're going to show is called White Buddha. I've actually broken this one into three steps. It's another pretty long trick. Just bear with me, break down the steps, watch each part and you'll get. The whole trick looks like this. Like that, that's White Buddha. Let me show you the first step. The first step, you actually might have already learned And Whut. The yo-yo comes up and under. And it's as if you're going to go onto 1 1/2 mount, but instead you kinda bail out the last second. You hit the top string and because you hit that top string, it bounces down to the bottom one. So just one more time it comes up and around. You hit that top string and it bounces up and down onto it. So from this move, you want to take this and go to your right and to a 1 1/2 mount. So one more time, it's from here to 1 1/2 mount. Just like Buddha's Revenge, you actually swing the yo-yo up and around like so and let me change angles real quick so you can see what's going on from this view point. So as it hits, you swing it over. Swing it all the way to the left or your non-throw hand side, open up this loop. The two strings coming over here. You're going to open this up. Just stick your thumb and pointer finger in there, open that up. You're going to pop the yo-yo up through this part just like so. From here you pop it back in and swing it back to 1 1/2 mount. Let me show you from the front what this looks like real quick. You land, 1 1/2 mount, come over, open up, pop out, pop back in. I'll try that again just to show you guys. Pop over and out. So over, out, back in and back into 1 1/2 mount. That's part one of White Buddha.

White Buddha Part 2:

Okay, this is part two of White Buddha. Go watch part one, you'll see the whole trick. Right now, we're back to 1 1/2 mount where we left off. What we did was we popped up, we popped out, we popped back in and back over. So right now you should be here. For part two, you'll actually swing the yo-yo back over and you're going to reopen that triangle just like part one and pop it out except this time as you do that, you're going to take this extra loop here and you're going to pull it in towards yourself and then push your finger back out. And you'll notice that you got rid of that wrap when you did that. Let me show you what that looks like again. So as it comes out, you twist in and push out. Yo-yo's hanging there. You swing it back over to your right and onto your throw hand pointer finger just like so. You then drop the first string on your non-throw hand just like this, you drop it and you swing the yo-yo up and over your non-throw hand pointer finger. Let me show you what this looks like. I'm going to swing it and it comes up and over. And because of that, you actually have to twist your finger inside like that. Let me show you what this looks like again. So it comes out, twist in, out, see that your pointer finger's in there, come land the yo-yo up over here. You drop that and swing up and over and notice my non-throw hand pointer finger is going to have to twist in to hold on to that string. From here, you actually pop up and land into 1 1/2 mount and you're actually ready for part three. Let me show you one more time what this looks like. So the whole trick you start from here, you pop out, over. Part two you twist in, comes over and lands here, you drop that and swing over, back to 1 1/2. And you're ready for part three of White Buddha.

White Buddha Part 3:

This is part three of White Buddha. This is the last step. Right now, we're this far. We've gone up through the beginning, shot in and out. Let me show you that one more time. So we shot out, back in, we came over, we came back out, we'll end it all the way around and we're back at a 1 1/2 mount. The last step, you actually swing it back over, but instead of opening it and shooting it out, you're actually going to land the yo-yo up into these two strings here and what this is actually going to cause the yo-yo to do is bind. So watch me here as I swing it up into these two and then you drop that and the yo-yo is actually going to grab that string. You might have to play around with your gap a little bit. Sometimes if its a really wide gap, it might just fall out. You might have to pull a little bit differently. You'll see, I pulled just right there so it's hanging and then as I pull, it comes out, and that's what you want. You want a really tight bind that as you pull it will come out of that. Let me break it down real quick one more time. What happens there, as it comes in, the string with your pointer finger actually is normally underneath, you just pull it off that and pull it forward and you release the throw hand pointer finger string into the gap and that's what causes it to bind. One more time, I'm going to show you what this looks like. So it swings over, you push in, you pull your non-throw hand pointer forward, drop the string on your throw hand and let it sit there like that. That will cause the bind. It looks like this in real motion. Sometimes the bind will be too tight like that, so you're going to have to play around through your gap--the bind. Let me show you what the whole trick looks like now, comes in, out, and you end with that. And that's White Buddha.
