The Diabolo - Suicide.

Any trick that involves throwing the hand stick, instead of the diabolo is a suicide. There are countless variations, but here is a good one to start with.

  • Start with the diabolo spinning quickly. Make sure that it is level.
  • Flip the diabolo to the left Half Way Around, and catch it on the cross string.
  • Now, gently toss the right hand stick straight down, and it will swing in a large arc around the whole pattern.
  • Catch the right hand stick back in the right hand.
  • Brag that you can pull a suicide.
Another variation of a suicide is to begin doing an Around the Arm, and while you arm is still in the pattern, add a halfway around. Suicide, and you're out of both moves.
