44FESTA vol.14 was held on September 20th, and it was also a seeding event for the upcoming 44FESTIVAL, which will take place on October 31st, in Kanagawa.
But first, a forward-pass-water-bottle-shoot-out. This edition’s mini-contest required players from each of the three teams to hit water bottles with forward passes. It looks like we’ve finally found something Hajime Miura is not invincible at!
It’s much harder to defeat him at the freestyle contest, however, and Hajime Miura secured a seed to 44FESTIVAL by taking first place, ahead of Shu Takada and Toru Miyazaki.
Watch all of the freestyles here.
44FESTA takes a break for a month in October as 44FESTIVAL takes place, and will be back in November.
Meanwhile, keep an eye on 44FESTIVAL EAST, which will gather the best from the Japanese yo-yo clubs and meetings at a freestyle contest!
