Tomonari Ishiguro Artistic Performance 1st WYYC 2007


Tomonari Ishiguro (also known as Black) was the 2001 Single A World Yo-Yo champion. He has invented countless tricks. His most well known trick is most likely the 'Black Hops', which is nowadays used in compulsory 1A category at the World Yo-Yo Contest as well as many other contests throughout the yo-yo world. His tricks have a very noticeable and unique feel to them, with great flow and rhythm but still incorporating subtle and difficult moves. But Black has not just pushed his yo-yo technique, his performance style and ideas continue to push the boundaries in yo-yo competition.

He has had two signature yo-yos produced by YoYoJam, the Black Nova and the Clessiah, however they are no longer available. He had also overseen the development of the Oxygene Obsidian yo-yo, as well as collaborating with Cerevo to develop the 7-Magic yo-yo.

He is the founding member of Guys of Liberty, and a former signature performer for Cirque du Soleil's Kurios show
