The Yo-yo Master

Japanese Yo-Yo Master Black, born in Tokyo, started with his first Yo-yo at 14; just four years and 10,000 hours of practice later he won the title of world champion Yo-yo master of 2001. After six more years of sprucing up his act and venturing into more complex Yo-yo techniques, Black won the 2007 World Yo-yo championship again. He later auditioned for Cirque du Soleil and is now a performer with them. Here's his website for info and (more) videos.

Black's Nunchaku reminiscent drills are not only impressive but mesmerizing to watch.

A Six min performance of his Yo-yo techniques (stick around til the end, the second half is incredible):

And a very short video compilation showing some of his cleverly executed tricks (such as flicking a coin off a volunteer's ear with his Yo-yo):
