Okay, next trick we are going to teach you is called atomic bomb. If you didn't learn split the atom, you need to learn it for atomic bomb. The first part of atomic bomb is the split bottom mount. Let me show you what this looks like again. Just like so. If you didn't learn this yet, go back and learn split the atom and you can take you through atomic bomb with it. Atomic bomb looks like this. It comes up and you go forward. Sometimes this trick is also referred to barrel rolls. A lot of people will tell you the trick is actually called barrel rolls. You can call it either way. I grew up with it as atomic bomb. I think originally it was called barrel rolls, so either way it goes. What you want to do is you come down, you make a split bottom mount, and just like split the atom, non-throw hand comes forward like so. Then instead of shooting over like this, it's kind of a tricky part. You take your throw hand you kind of make a motion forward and it kind of lands the yo-yo string up here like so. Let me show you again from the side what this looks like. I start with split bottom mount, then come forward, and I shoot my hand forward and catch the yo-yo string over there. Then you're right back where you started with split bottom mount. Go forward again, you come down, forward, come down. Let me show you again. One of the other things you'll notice is as you're doing this move, you come forward, you come forward. I have an extra string wrapped around my hand. Every time you do this you're going to keep getting string wraps. Eventually the string gets really small. It's going to make it a little bit harder to get into it. Just come off, pull it off your hand. You'll be all set to keep going. One more time. Split bottom mount. You bring your hand underneath and you swing your throw hand forward catching the other string in that top string. Forward, forward, forward, forward. I believe in competition it's 3 of these. Let's try that again. 1, 2, 3, and catch. That is atomic bomb.
