We are living in unprecedented times. Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, yoyo contests have been postponed, beaches have closed, concerts have been canceled, and health experts have suggested that even those that show no symptoms of illness stay home. Although staying indoors is a good way to protect yourself and others from the spread of COVID-19, it may lead to a less severe sickness: cabin fever. Knowing this, it feels like it’s time to dust off these tutorials we have been sitting on for nearly two years.
Filmed in Richmond during the Virginia State Yoyo Contest in 2018, the Mic Check tutorial series was born and subsequently forgotten once we made it home after a long bus ride. Now in this time of uncertainty, publishing these tutorials seems like the least we can do for all those stuck at home. For the next few weeks, we will drop a new (old) Mic Check tutorial every Monday.
Enjoy! (and stay socially distant)
