The second most common direction of trick is ‘front style,’ when you throw the yoyo out in front of you. Brain Twister should be your first introduction into front style string tricks. It is the foundation for many more advanced tricks later on. Make sure you know it well.
Throw the yoyo out in front of you. Take your non throw hand and push the string forward. With your throw hand bring the string down, mounting the yoyo about halfway up the string. Wrap the string around the gap of the yoyo. Your throw hand should be about half way up the string again. Take the whole formation and swing all forward. That is one repetition of Brain Twister. You can continue doing as many as you would like.
