2017 Japan National will have “International Open Freestyle”

JYYF (Japan Yo-Yo Federation) just announced they will have a new division, “International Open Freestyle” at 2017 Japan National Yo-Yo Contest (JN).

 

The 2017 Japan National Yo-Yo Contest will be held from June 17th to 18th at Sakura Hall in Shibuya, Tokyo.

This year marks the 19th annual Japan national yo-yo contest. During that time it has evolved from a small contest in a local community center with around 50 in attendance, to its current size of 600-800 in professional convention halls and auditoriums throughout Japan in recent years. JN is arguably one of the most competitive yo-yo contests in the world, which makes it an incredibly exciting event to attend in-person. Among those fighting for this year’s five national titles are many former and current national and world champions. See your heroes up close and personal and cheer them on for the win!

This year, in addition to the 1-5A Championship Divisions, Women’s, Over 40, Team, and Compulsory Trick divisions, we are happy to announce a brand new International Open Freestyle (IOF) division! This division is open only to players who are not Japanese citizens, nor residents of Japan, so if you’re visiting for JN this is your chance to share the stage with top Japanese players and perform in front of one of the best yo-yo audiences in the world.

Whether you’re ready to get in on the action, or just want to cheer on and interact with your favorite players, we warmly invite you to attend the 2017 Japan National Yo-Yo Contest. See you in Tokyo!

Cerevo 7-Magic Preorder

At long last, the light-up yo-yo that you didn’t know was possible will soon be released!

Make way for Cerevo’s 7-Magic!

The 7-Magic is a super bright light-up yo-yo with programmable LED with C3yoyodesign’s Initiator as its base.

It is equipped with 21 super bright LED lights on each side, which you can program for timing, color, and patterns, through your bluetooth-enabled computer.

It comes with two sets of spacers, a set for looping (same as the regular Initiator) and a set for sleeping (setting for regular play).

This is a sample performance of all the things the 7-Magic can do.

BLACK, one of the world’s most well-known yo-yo performers, helped with the development of the 7-Magic. In the video above, he used the 7-Magic in his brand-new show.

After performing in KURIOS, a Cirque du Soleil show, BLACK set his sights on expanding the possibilities of yo-yo. This project became possible through Black’s collaboration with the CEO of Cerevo, and after months of development it’s now on its way to becoming one of the most innovative yo-yos in the scene.

You can preorder Cerevo’s 7-Magic now!

We are now taking preorders. Once we receive the yo-yos from the maker we will ship them out. We expect to be able to ship within the month of November. If you order any other items with this yo-yo, everything in your order will be shipped together after we receive the 7-Magic. We recommend ordering the 7-Magic separately from other items if you need them sooner.

Note: The yo-yo is designed to be used within Japan. Any use of this yo-yo outside of Japan will be out of maker’s customer support/warranty. Please use the yo-yo at your own risk.
