One of the popular sports in China is playing with the Chinese yo-yo. The basic yo-yo is shaped like two disks connected by an axle and is spun by a string wound around its center. An alternating lifting and dropping motion using two sticks, each held in one hand, keeps the yo-yo spinning on a string tied between the sticks.
Chinese YoYo can be used by people of any age for play or moderate exercise. There are many wonderful tricks that can be performed by using your hands, fingers, legs, neck and even the waist. Individuals who use the Chinese YoYo for fifteen minutes a day improve their coordination, flexibility, stamina and strength, resulting in a nimble body and a sharp mind. For many families, exercising with the Chinese YoYo is an opportunity for everyone to share time together in an enjoyable and healthy activity.
Mr. Jeffery Lin is a parent of MingDe. He is very passionate about Chinese yo-yo and would like to share his talent with any students and parents who are interested in playing Chinese yoyo.
