Learn how to do Regenerations to add spin to your yoyo.

This trick is called Regeneration and it looks like this.

If you look at the trick you might notice that the Regeneration is really just a flip, except it is a flip used to add spin to the yoyo. So, as you are working on this trick you really want to make sure that you have your flips down because this trick is completely dependent on that skill.

The only difference between the Flip and the Regeneration is that instead of bringing the yoyo back immediately, maybe to do another flip, you are going to bring it back a little bit larger, you are going to make the motion larger so that it will sleep. Again, a flip you are just going to go straight out, but for a Regeneration you are going to kind of make the motion bigger. It is going to come around so that it will go down and sleep at the bottom.

What is great about Regenerations is that if you are doing looping tricks, or Around the Worlds or anything like that they can be thrown in anywhere to just keep the motion going so that you do not have to stop your routine. Like I already showed you, if you want to start with a forward toss you can do a Regeneration right into the forward mount. Maybe you want to do a forward toss off to the side you can do your Regeneration right into your side mount. You can even do it from your loops. You can just do a Regeneration right in the middle and just get right into your tricks. You can group several string tricks together and then use a Regeneration to keep the motion going to add trick to trick to trick. It is just a really great trick.

Again, learn your Flips; bring them into Regenerations as a transition. That’s the Regeneration.
