The Around the Corner yo-yo trick is also known as Orbit Launch. If you can travel Around the World, you're ready for a shorter trip that's just Around the Corner!
Step 1: Begin by throwing a hard Sleeper.
Step 2: Swing the string around and behind the upper part of your yo-yo arm, so that the yo-yo hangs behind you, draped over the upper part of your yo-yo arm just above the elbow.
Step 3: Reach down with your yo-yo hand and grab the string just above the spinning yo-yo with your thumb and index finger.
Step 4: Now quickly jerk the yo-yo up. It will jump over the top of your arm as it winds up. Let it continue down toward the floor, then retrieve it as if you were doing a Gravity Pull.
Be sure the yo-yo is spinning swiftly when you tug the string to call it home.
