To establish a new direction for yo-yo competitions and to expand the possibilities as a yo-yo cup, “AXEL YO-YO CUP (ex. JAPAN YO-YO CUP)“ held in Japan was established in 2020.
We will hold various events, Online / Real Cup, etc. where players from all over the world can participate. The intention to use the word, “Cup” is based on the idea of ​​creating a competition with a different taste from “Contest”.
At the moment, there are very few yo-yo competitions that have maintained the quality in Japan. Not only high quality, but also devising competition rules from various player’s perspectives providing excellent competitions, appointing music experts to judge music items, providing a place where you can experience the International Open Cup closer by using the online method. The winner of the online cup after the COVID-19 disaster will be a real cup either domestic or overseas. Incorporating seed rights and travel expenses (planned) as invited players. We aim to revitalize the yo-yo community and improve its image.
We have used the phrase “Cup” as an event name to improve recognition. Not only in “Cup”, but also in showcases, battles, live concerts by artists and DJs expanding the musical choices that are indispensable for yo-yo competitions and not only the contestants. We will incorporate content that can be enjoyed by viewers from multiple countries.
This cup is available in 1A (single hand string), 2A (double handle looping), 3A (double hand string), 4A (off string), 5A (counterweight). 5 divisions in 2 minutes freestyle format (1 minute online). We will hold an amateur section and an over 30 section in a one-minute freestyle format.
The judges are Japan’s excellent ones who have won the yo-yo world tournament.
A yo-yo player and a musician who knows yo-yo are appointed. We will conduct a strict examination based on three selections.
We will do our best to help this cup open up the great potential of the players who will be responsible for the yo-yo community in the future, and to make it an event that can raise the level of the community.

The first event was successfully held in 2020, and while updating the events title and improving problems, I would like to launch various projects and hold a continuously constant pace.
