Was messinโ€™ around with some rejection whip concepts. Sad I couldnโ€™t land it the way I wanted it to. #trickcircle


Quick trick for the day! Do pop by at @spinworkxsg if you are interested to learn how to yo-yo! ๐Ÿ˜ #trickcircle #spinworkx #turningpoint #kittystring #saltbaethumbnail


Iโ€™m always keen to take on greater challenges in life. As much as I know I will go through failure occasionally, Iโ€™ll always get back and prove to myself that I have the potential to excel and strive in the things I do. Hereโ€™s to a new chapter here in this cafe ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Itโ€™s always a great feeling to hit the freestyle the way you want it to. This should be my favourite freestyle I have done as of now. Hereโ€™s to more epic freestyles ahead! ๐Ÿ˜ (full freestyle is in my bio!) #JOYC2017

The best part of yo-yoing is to have great conversations with players overseas. Whether you are Oldskool or Newskool. - @marcusk0h

I got 3rd place in the Japan Open Yo-yo Championship 2017 in the DS division.
I am so happy to be able to meet so many great Japanese players and to hang out with some of my favourite players (Dont worry, I still didnโ€™t forget the non-Japanese players and friends. You guys are awesome as well ๐Ÿ˜) I am also extremely happy with the outcome of my freestyle and I am glad that many enjoyed my freestyle as well. (Link in bio)
JOYC is definitely one of my favourite competitions to attend and I really hope more people worldwide attend future JOYCs. Thank you to all my Japanese friends who took care of me during the competition. I hope to see you all at AP/Shanghai 2018.
Just wanted to end this with something Iโ€™ve learnt throughout the 2 days. โ€˜No matter how talented we are in something, always remember that we are all still human.โ€™ Much love,
Thawhir Iqbal

I would like to thank @instagram for the opportunity to share my passion and story on the main page. I hope that more people worldwide get to know more about modern yo-yoing.
Much love,

It makes me happy when I see the amazement on their faces when I showcase to them what modern yo-yoing looks like.โ€
