About TakeshiFew players have contributed more to the yo-yo community and in so many ways as The Man, Takeshi Kamisato.
Born in Wahiawa, Hawaii (take the H2, Exit 8) he started throwing a yo-yo in early 2001 and over the years he has brought his unique genius to every facet of the yo-yo world.
His yo-yo modifications have sent yo-yo design in new directions. His tricks are some of the most unique and most difficult ever created.
Churning out fast-paced high-energy clip videos, his signature style of video making has raised the bar. His latest DVD production, A New Level, is an advanced yo-yo tutorial video that also captures the positive energy of the Duncan Crew.
Along with Takeshi's incredible yo-yo skills, he is also one of the worlds best spintop players. A juggernaut in the skill toy world, Takeshi has done demonstrations across the United States, Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, England, Germany, Czech Republic, Hungary, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines and Japan.
A skateboarder for more than 20 years, Takeshi uses his job as a demonstrator and filmmaker to travel the world and skate.
Often accused of being the nicest guy in the yo-yo community, his passion for life is infectious.
