How to Do Nunchuck Counterweight

Yo-Yo Trick

So, the next trick is called nunchuck. It's kind of a cool looking trick. You want to have already learned the brain twister where you release and catch the string like that 'cause the next part is actually releasing that dice and allowing it to travel up and around your arm. It looks like this. I release the dice. It shoots up and over like so. You grab this dice once it comes over and swing the yoyo back over like that and then catch. So, the trick itself looks like this. Catch, release, pull over like so. That's called nunchuck. One more time, we'll break it down for you. You start with the brain twister mount again just like we did before. You release but this time you release with a little more speed which allows the dice to come up over your arm. Get your other hand ready there as it comes over so that you can grab it right away and then swing it back over your shoulder like that. One of the other keys to this trick, if you don't have your hand up there right away, you notice what can happen as it comes over, it will get caught around the string here. And then it's a little tricky sometimes if you have to go and try to unravel it. You might end up getting a knot around your arm if you're not careful. So, it's really important that you have your hand up there ready to catch as you're going to do this. So, I swing, I already got my hand ready to grab it. Pull it right over and then catch. That's called the nunchuck.
