If you’ve been enjoying the top-notch vlogs from Ann Connolly and Ben Conde, we’ve got another one you’ll dig. Igor Galiev from YoYoFactory Russia is two episodes in and we’re already looking forward to more in the series. If the whole series ends up being Igor flying around and eating ramen, we are 100% on board for that. Check out the first two episodes below, and we’ll post more as they’re uploaded!
Fist Salud presents a pile of awesome tricks from Eric Koloski and Tal Mordoch, filmed at the 2016 Czech National YoYo Contest in Prague. Shot and cut by Igor Galiev.
YoYoFactory really knows how to pick a destination. Check out this video from their recent YoYoFactory Adventure trip to Jordan to explore more beautiful scenery and check out another international yoyo scene. Featuring Ann Connolly, Gentry Stein, Eric Koloski, Igor Galiev, Ben McPhee, and Vashek Kroutil.
In 2016 YoYoFactory went on a mission exploring Lost Civilizations and discovering YoYo Culture all around the world. The lure of Petra, the beauty of the desert and the wonder of the Dead Sea paled in comparison to the hospitality of a dedicated crew of YoYo players we met there. Video by SLUSNY.
The YoYoFactory gang made their trip to EYYC as memorable as possible, starting with a side trip to Jordan before the contest. I’m sure we’ll get an official video from YoYoFactory soon, but for now we get to enjoy a look at the trip through Ann Connolly’s eyes. The most important part of the trip to any yoyo contest isn’t actually the yoyoing…it’s the adventures with your friends. And Ben. If you can bring Ben along for anything, it will be at least 35% better, I promise.
Featuring Ben McPhee, Gentry Stein, Eric Koloski, Ann Connolly, Vashek Kroutil, and Igor Galiev.
Igor Galiev is one of my favorite yoyo players in the world. His tricks are consistently great, with construction that is always uniquely his own and concepts that are so crazy subtle that only long-time yoyo players can appreciate them. Seriously, his tricks are just so densely layered with multiple levels of complexity that it’s a wonder he has time for anything else in his life.
And then, on top of that, he brings in a slew of talent from YoYoFactory Russia to show off too? DAMN. I’m spending the rest of my day watching this and working on elements.
Yoyo used is the YoYoFactory Dogma.
Check out the latest video in the POV series from Russia, this one featuring Igor Galiev. Igor is such a tremendously talented and creative yoyo player. He’s your favorite, and if he isn’t then he should be!

YoYoFactory’s Igor Galiev just dropped a super awesome new video, with a great twist. It starts off as a typical “day in the life” video, but the viewer gets to choose what he does next…leading eventually to a new tutorial or videos featuring his recently released signature yoyo, the YoYoFactory Dogma.
This is a really neat concept, executed well, and the results are a ton of fun. Plus, anything that gets us more video from Igor Galiev is pretty good, right?
Some notes from Igor:
This is a YouTube video game life simulator with ability to affect life choices of Russian yoyo master Igor Galiev during his day off. Be careful your choices will affect his life! But do not worry, because we have a “replay” button.
For best experience we recommend you to play video on your computer browser at 1080p 60fps and use good sound system or headphones. However, you can play on your mobile device, but it will simplify your gaming experience. While use your mobile device on iOS or Android you must run video in Youtube app. (not mobile browser!)

There’s some pretty amazing yoyo play in Russia, and apparently there’s also some really good tea. Like….really good tea.
Our friends at Perfect Elements have finally released their 45-minute film, “Perfect Elements: The Movie”.

Welcome to the world of yoyo.
Yoyo is not just a game. It’s something bigger. You can see all this huge world with a place for everyone, here in this movie. It’s not only an hours of practice and learning tricks, but travels, adventures, parties… Tricks that was just a fantasy yesterday, today became a reality. It’s not an easy way, because without work and patience you can’t make even a first step, but that’s what makes it precious. Every new trick brings the joy of creation. It’s when sensation is what important, not the result, when you come on stage not attending to win, but to show your skills. It’s when you come back home all full of impressions and inspiration. It’s the awaiting of that very moment, when it appears in your head, perfect element!
Here’s a quick little burst of goodness you might have missed on Instagram! Remember to post your videos with the hashtag #trickcircle so we can find them!
JonRob reminding everyone why he’s the GOAT. Check out that moment where the counterweight lays over his forearm and he slides it down to his wrist…that is ^&*$%&^ golden.
Big, flowy slack moves and string rejections never get old. Thanks to Igor Galiev for bringing us this one from Victor Gravitsky.
…and as usual, Riccardo Fraolini wins everything. Damn, dude.
