~FROM JAPAN YO-YO CUP~
JAPAN YOYO CUP (JYYCIO) was established in 2020 as a yoyo cup to be held in Japan. JYYCIO will propse new directions for yoyo competitions to expand their possibilities. We will hold various events, such as online cup, traditional cup, and more. Players from all over the world can participate in these events. The reason for using the name of cup is because of the idea of creating a competition in a different direction from the contest currently being held in Japan. Currently, there are very few competitions in Japan that maintain good quality.
To provide a better competition, We will consider the rules based on the player’s point on view, appoint a music expert to act as music judge and provide a place where you can experience the International Open Cup closely by adopting the online method.
The winner will be given a seed and travel expenses as an invite player to the Real Cup not only domestic but also international players and aiming to revitalize and enhance yoyo community’s image.
In addition, JYYCIO will widen and reimagine the usage of music in the yoyo competition scene. Live performances by artists and DJs to expand the musical options that are indispensable for yoyo competitions and we will incorporate not only participants but also viewers can enjoy, such as special demonstrations by overseas players unique to the online cup.
JAPAN YOYO CUP -INTERNATIONAL ONLINE- is to be held in May 2021, with 1A (single hand string) 2A(double hand looping) 3A(double hand string) 4A(offstring) and 5A(counterweight) divisions in a 2 minute freestyle format. There will also be an Amateur division and over 30 division, with a 1 minute freestyle format. We have appointed excellent Japanese yoyo players and musicians who understand yoyoing as judges.
We will carry out a strict examination based on three items.
We will do our best to help the players unleash their great potential and make it an event that can step up the community.

Nice to meet you. I will be the representative of JYYCIO. I placed 3rd in the 1A division of the 2019 and 2018 World Yoyo Contest. I would like to use of my experience of participating in various competitions, mainly in Japan and the United States, as a player to create an excellent new competition from the player’s point of view. We will take on new challenges, such as prize money for the top players, which is not common in Japanese competitions. I will work without being bound by common Japanese tendencies. it’s an international open cup, we hope it will be a event that attracts attention not only from Japan but also from overseas. We will also promote more actively outside of Japan. The 1st JYYCIO held last year was a success. There were many points of improvement, but there were some bigger response than that. Many players from outside of Japan participated, and as an international open cup and it was able to attract attention from yoyo players around the world. It’s difficult to hold a World YoYo Contest right now. JYYCIO will grow as an event that players from all over the world can easily participate in by using online events. I will do my best with Yuuki, who has comprehensive experience as an event organizer. We will appreciate your cooperation.

Nice to meet you. I will be the representative of JYYCIO. I am a yoyo player, musician, DJ, and an event organizer, under the name of Yackle. I met Hyper YoYo when I was 10 years old and then started competing in competitions. The source of motivation for yoyo was heavily involved in competitions and events, so Since the year before last, I have been hosting events that incorporate yoyo as well as music. We plan an event “JYYCIO” with a new format / content, have more players from amateurs to professionals enjoy it, and build a new monetization method with yoyo. Incorporating a system that can be gave back to players as well as brands. We hope to make the yoyo community even more exciting. In addition, music is indispensable for freestyle competitions and since yoyo is the catalyst for my current musical activities. We have also set up a new rules to make music stand out to score it. And because it’s an international open tournament so I want to make the wonderfulness of being able to communicate more familiar, regardless of nationality with players from other countries through yoyo. The first event was successfully held in 2020, and we will continue to hold this event at a constant pace while improving the problems, and we will do our best to establish it as a stable yoyo event. We will be grateful for your help.
