Jan Kordovský

Jan Kordovský is better known as “Korda” in the yoyo community. He started throwing in 2003 and soon discovered the tiny local yoyo community which met up every Thursday in one of many Prague parks.  He went there and he’s throwing ever since. Korda is the owner of the YOYO STORE and he’s in charge of everything (so if there’s a mess up – shout at him). He builds and updates the website, replies to emails, make phone calls, sorts out disasters, ships stuff from time to time, he’s in charge of the social networks, paperwork and basically everything surrounding this “project”. Korda is also quite active in the community work. He’s one of the founding members of the IYYF and the Czech YoYo Association. He’s behind many Czech Nationals, few European YoYo Contests and one World YoYo Contest (which he takes as his biggest accomplishment yet). He’s also the Czech national master in 5A and he’s a co-founder of the first Czech metal yoyo – Hugo z Hor.
