Chinese Yo-Yo class is offered by Richard King.
Chinese Yo-Yo, also called a diabolo, is the Chinese equivalent to
the western yo-yo. This toy includes two sticks tied together with
a string and a spool. The point of the game is to keep the spool spinning
and prevent it from hitting the ground. When spun up, the spool will
create a mysterious whirling sound. Traditionally played by youngsters
as a form of entertainment; this ancient sport has a long history traced
even to the Ming dynasty. Presently, this device is generally performed
for major Chinese festivals or holidays such as the Chinese New Year.
