Rock The Baby is tearing the yo-yo community apart

r/Throwers, the yo-yoing community on Reddit, was torn apart this weekend by a huge controversy. Is Rock the Baby performed with the palm up, or palm down?

The debate started shortly after yotricks posted this tutorial. A flame war quickly broke out on Reddit, with many people chiming in on the “correct” way to do this classic picture trick. All of which is ridiculous… it’s palm down obviously.



Here are some of my favorite threads in the conversation:

Adam, please explain your campaign of misinformation. #palmup from Throwers

A million people have been misled by their ways. #palmup #congratulations from Throwers

PSA: a message from #TeamPalmDown from Throwers

Who needs palms anyway? from Throwers

You’ve all had it wrong this whole time #footdown from Throwers

We here to change the game #palmsideway from Throwers

PSA: Sorry YoTricks, but you really are wrong. #palmup from Throwers

Here at the 3A school of throwing we like to think things differently… from Throwers
