We are learning diabolo tricks. Before you come to this segment, I want you to look at the segments over the arm and over the other arm because both of those skills are required for over the forearms. Over the arm we start by turning our right arm inside. We take our sticks which are parallel; we turn the right one inside so that our arm is next to the string. Over the other arm we take our sticks that are parallel, we turn the left stick around so that our left arm is inside the string. Now, to do over both arms or over forearms we are going to take both sticks and spin them like that. Again let’s use the diabolo as weight. We take both sticks and we turn them both inside so that the handles are facing outwards, both the arms will be inside the string for one on the right and one on the left and as usual the left hand will make the trick happen. Are you ready? Here we go. You get the diabolo spinning fast. Make sure it is centered. Make sure we are centered behind it. Turn the right arm first and then the left. The left arm is popping the diabolo over both arms. The way I do it is I step into it. First I turn my right arm and I do over the arm and then immediately turn the left hand. See look at that. Over the arm, then turn left and go right into over the forearms. And again the right hand is driving it. The right hand is pushing it in an orbit over both arms so even as it is going to the trick it is still picking up a little speed. One more time. Here we go. Let’s make the words match the motion. Turn the right arm, over the arm; turn the left arm, over the forearms and popping it up with the left hand. For those who did not get it look at my left hand motion, I am popping it up like this with my left hand because of the diabolo speed and momentum that is enough to pop it up in an orbit and that is over the forearms.
