Its a very sad thing, but for those who didn’t know, yama18yoyo’s youtube account, which has been the source for pretty much all world yoyo contest freestyles for many years, as well as all footage of the contest freestyles in Japan, has been closed due to copyright infringement.
I don’t know about all of you, but I had high appreciation and respect for that channel as well as Yama himself. Going around and letting your camera record every single freestyle isn’t easy, and Yama provided an amazing service for all of us who wanted to check out freestyles from Japan as well as freestyles from worlds.
Yama was not the only one who put up worlds freestyles, but he has been the only one putting up literally EVERY freestyle from year to year. And the loss of many of these fs’s is very sad.
Anyways, this is sad, but I felt people should know if you were going back to look for certain freestyles.
Best wishes to Yama and hopefully we can find those freestyles somewhere else in the future.
