    Before you attempt Diabolo Around The Arm Make sure to feel confidant with these tricks.

    The Diabolo - Around the Arm.

    Once you learn this one, you can also try around the leg.

    The Left hand is used to toss the diabolo up, while the Right hand accelerates the diabolo's spin each time the top passes under the elbow.
    • Start with the diabolo spinning quickly, and make sure that it is level. We've said it before, we'll say it again. The diabolo must always be level!
    • Place your Right elbow over the string. It helps to lower the Left hand as you do this.
    • Make a low throw using your Left Hand, which is directed towards the segment of string which runs from your Right hand stick to your Right forearm.
    • Allow the diabolo to roll along the string, and back to where you started from.
    • If you want to do this trick continually, you'll need to add spin to the diabolo by flicking the Right hand stick forwards as the diabolo passes under your elbow.

    Under the leg allows a few more variations of this trick. Start by just holding your Right leg over the string, and circling it with the diabolo. Continue throwing the diabolo around your leg, and set your foot down on the other side of the string, so you are straddling the string.

    From there you can even turn your body a quarter turn to the Right, and alternate tossing the diabolo over your left and right hips. When tossing over the Left hip, you will need to reach behind your back with the Right hand stick to make the throw.
