The members of Unito have represented Finnish tricking all over the world in events and gatherings in Sweden, Norway, Germany, France, China, The United States and Canada.
Unito was born when 2 trickers from Tampere(Team Toku) and 2 trickers from Helsinki(Universal Tricksters) joined forces in Finland’s first official gathering in Helsinki 2004. With the merging of the names, UniTo was born. Unito has been the pioneer of Finnish tricking and they hold the annual Tampere Open Gathering, every year bigger and bigger.
