Some of the Spindox club went to Cirque du Soleil's mind blowing Kurios show last night. We were lucky enough to see and then meet the phenomenal BLACK (Tomonari Ishiguro) - Super Star Yo-ist. He graciously agreed to meet us afterwards. I was very humbled by his recognizing me and saying that my ball bearing yo-yo got him started when he was a kid. Here he checks out the

So, I'm pretty good at yo-yoing. Honestly, in a man of advancing years, it's downright alarming to some people. Parents at the bus stop or shoppers at Target will ask me (to my wife's chagrin) how I ever became so adept, particularly at such a STRANGE thing to be adept at... It's kind of a backhanded complement, I guess, but I'll take it. My answer is pretty simple, and generally seems

TOM KUHN SILVER BULLET SERIES CONTINUES . . . AND A JOURNEY OF PASSIONOver thirty years after the world’s first take-a-part modular yo-yo was introduced by Dr. Tom Kuhn, the San Francisco dentist and team are at it again. The quest for perfection takes us on many journeys, exploring the world for inspiration. It has continued with our insistence on using American craftsmen to produce the
