Blazing Team: Masters of Yo Kwon Do (Chinese: 火力少年王悠拳英雄; pinyin: Huǒlì Shàonián Wáng Yōu Quán Yīngxióng, literally: "Blazing Teens: Yo-Kwon-Do Heroes") is a Chinese-American animated series produced by Guangdong Alpha Animation & Culture and Hasbro Studios. The show is a re-imagining of Alpha's Blazing Teens yo-yo property aimed at western audiences.[1]

Originally commissioned for 52-episodes, the series aired over two seasons.[2] The first of which debuted in the United States on Discovery Family on November 13, 2015.[3] With an episode count reduced by 10, the second season premiered on July 22, 2017.[4] In China, the series debuted on iQiyi and other streaming platforms in August 2017.
