Another fantastic Japanese contest clip from Dee of Fist Salud. As we’ve come to expect from Dee’s videos, there’s a good mix of legends (Chris Makita, Kengo Kido, Pon, Rei Iwakura) and new school talent (check out Daiki’s whip thing at :37!)… and also some gleefully uncensored old school hip-hop, so maybe keep those speakers down at work. What we didn’t expect was the enormous red-eyed dragon throwing product into the crowd and playing with devil sticks, but as Maya Nakamura likes to put it, THIS IS JAPAN!

365yoyotricks.com – Weekly Roundup
It’s that time again….whereupon my friends and I do a little dance and pull some more tricks out of our butts!
I’ve always been a lousy 2A player, but I make up for it by co-opting 2A elements as 1A tricks.
Spencer Berry and Walter show off one of the classic foundational tricks that led us to where modern yoyoing is today….Rancid Milk.
There is nothing graceful about this weird trick.
I actually decided to sample the forbidden fruit a little this week and work on some counterweight.
Good luck with this bit of fixed axle nastiness from Ed Haponik. It’s ridiculously hard.
Start doing something you know, and then do it wrong and see what happens.
And Rafael Matsunaga gives us one of his favorite default tricks and it’s super pretty!
See you next week!
