We’ve got another recap video from the 2016 European YoYo Championship, with a totally different look and feel and it’s fantastic to get a truly first-hand look at how different the contest looks to different people. Stay up all night, pound a few beverages, watch them both back-to-back, and then maybe you’ll have a 20% idea of what it was like to be there.
The 2016 Canadian Nationals was held March 26th in Toronto, and it was a great showing of talent from all over Canada.

Multi time world champion Hiroyuki Suzuki and YoYoRecreation owner Kengo Kido have announced their new international contest in Japan, the 2016 Japan Open YoYo Championship. The announcement also included their desire for the 2018 World YoYo Contest to be held in Japan again. Be sure to like the Facebook page and keep an eye out on their website for updates.
We are proud to announce the “Japan Open YoYo Championship”, a new championship brought to you by Hiroyuki Suzuki and Kengo Kido in collaboration.
The Japan Open YoYo Championship is an international open YoYo championship, set up with the aim to stimulate the long-term development of the Japanese YoYo community.
The Tokyo 2015 World YoYo Contest, was a special contest for many Japanese players who for the first time shared experiences and made new bonds with players from overseas, giving them a taste of how great an international community is developing, far away from Japanese shores.
To give the positive effects of worlds long lasting momentum, we felt the need to create an event in Japan where players can gather from across the world annually, build on friendships, and continue the rivalries sparked in 2015.
In the same way that Europe is known for EYYC, and Singapore is known for AP, we will build a contest that the Japanese community can be proud of.
We also firmly believe that because of the size and the passion toward YoYo our community has, along with our depth of experience with running competitions, that the 2018 World Yo-yo Contest should again be held in Japan.
The success of the Japan Open YoYo Championship will further cement the already strong foundations we have in Japan – that is our experience of running contest and our fantastic scene – and give our committee of organisers further experience in order to make a successful bid for the 2018 World Yo-Yo Contest, and run an amazing event.
Mark your calendars, the dates and venue for EYYC 2016 have been announced! The website will be up soon, but join the Facebook event for updates!
The organisers of the original EYYC 2010, 2011 and 2012 – Czech YoYo Association, Jan “Korda” Kordovský & Ondra Šedivý officially announce that the 2016 European YoYo Championship will take place in Prague’s theatre Archa on the 19th and 20th of March!
The website will be ready soon with all the necessary info. You can except the usual list of categories & standard IYYF rules. Our aim is to make this contest more accessible to more players so start practicing NOW!
