It’s that time again, boys and girls – time for a 5A BATTLE TO THE DEATH!
This time, we have World Champ, National Master, and overall 5A legend Rafael Matsunaga squaring off against his teammate… Drew Tetz! (no titles, just tricks.)
This one’s a scorcher. Watch both videos, vote for your favorite, and tell your friends!

a master footbag stitcher made this tiny 36 panel counterweight footbag. have to use tweezers to jam the string through the middle.
i did this interview with jon over facebook chat. apparently facebook chat can’t remember the entire conversation, so here’s about half of my interview with jon. won’t let that happen again.
yys: how’d you meet the severe brothers?
j: back in the day at Mitchell’s Toys Trains and Hobbies yoyo club.
yys: you guys just both showed up at club one night?
j: they were hella young and good as fuck.
yys: was everyone else lame
j: back then I was still kind of new… Tyler was all about 4A and Danny was just there…. There were more than a few dudes better than us that use to go to club back then. Tyler and I just connected… and started going HARD. I use to smile more…
yys: haha danny hasnt changed much i guess. i don’t think he threw a yoyo once at MAR last year.
j: Now he is too cool for that shit.
yys: have you chilled with danny lately?
j: naw dude moved out to bum fuck Maryland… living with his mom/grandam. and didn’t have a car for a minute… plus I’ve been trying to take care of my wife cause I got the seed coming soon.
yys: he have a crib now or still at home?
living with his mom/grandam.
yeah over the border….. shit is just hella far to go pick his ass up and go chill…. I heard he has a car now though….
yys: well thats kinda beat. i get my car in 4 days and was tryin to chill but you probably gotta be a dad this summer right?
j: yeah I’m on that grown man shit now a days… tha’st why I can’t fuck wit Danny anymore. I’m ready though
yys: girl or boy?
j: Its a girl… we are going to name her Miki.
yys: that’s what’s up man. you got the bedroom and shit goin? some fresh kicks. tiny jordans?
j: lol… I still need to set up the crib… no baby J’s yet… but her fits will be on point. Polo head to toe.
yys: we have here a question from seth peterson of savedeth.com. Seth asks “what does your family think of you bein a grown ass yoyoer?”
j: they don’t really think shit… yoyo is just some shit I do. I’m a husband first, I just happen to yoyo and look fly while I do it.
yys: any sponsor deals lately?
j: naw no sponsors…
yys: what was up with the pure? didn’t seem like you were all about it.
j: It was ok at first. But it held a brotha back. SPYY was good to me. I just wasn’t feeling the look and YYF’s yoyos were way better IMO.
yys: did you make any cash?
j: I made some G’s…. but it wasnt worth it to me. I’d rather be my own man and use what the fuck I want and wear what the fuck I want. That little bit of money don’t add up to me. I’ve got a full time job that pays the bills…. that little yoyo money ain’t shit. I’d be down with another yoyo sponsor… but it would have to a company that I fuck with on ALL levels.
yys: yeah I hear that. But that is sick you made over 2 grand?
j: yeah I guess…. Part of the deal was that some of the money was to go to travel expenses… So I had to buy my plane tickets to the big competitions… so after buying plane tickets and some high end denim,
I probably put about a G in my savings…. that ain’t shit. It was some mom and pop type shit… I ain’t mad at em…. it was what is was. So I peaced out.
