I missed the first kendama world cup and I’m still pretty bitter about it! Next year I will be there no matter what. When I first saw the ladder videos I said Bonz is going to win or Bosch and they placed 1 and 2, so just sayin’. I called that shit. Looked like an amazing event and I can’t wait for next year. Go check out this guys youtube channel because he uploaded a bunch of peoples runs, some freestyles and even the award ceremony.
These are the 5 winning routines from the Japanese YoYo Championship held yesterday. If you don’t know anything about yoyo there are 5 different disciplines and if you watch all 5 it’s pretty easy to figure out what they are. Seriously insane yoyoing thats for sure, 3a was definitely my favorite. Ambidextrous as fuck!
I just got the Ozoras in stock. So you can pick one up on the store link on the sidebar. In my opinion the Ozora is the best $25 kendama ever made. Every player should have one and if they don’t have one now they are basically fucking up. Free bike delivery in SF and if you are in the bay area email me for local meet ups. email@example.com
I have decided that Deal With it will now be carrying kendamas along with the other Deal with it products. I will be be stocking TK16s and Ozoras for now because these are two brands that I think every kendama player should own. Also if you live in San Francisco I am offering free bike delivery! Or if you live in the bay area and will be in SF sometime I can meet up whenever in the city. Right now no one is SF sells Ozoras or TK16s and I decided that needs to be changed. So if you are in SF you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Other then that you can order them through the store by just clicking the store link in the sidebar. Right now its just TK16s but Ozoras should be up on the site in a few days. I just want to be spreading the dama love and who better then a player that really loves it.
Sourmash just came out with his own full kendamas! I’m so stoked for the homie. He also redesigned his store and it’s looking better then ever. Now when you buy an epic Sourmash tama you get a dama with it, can’t argue with that. So go check out his new store and support an OG in the dama game.
20 years playing kendama. 2 jumbos kendamas and no string. This is the result. This is part 2/4 in the series be sure to check out the first if you haven’t. Stoked to see the 2 remaining parts.
Dama, dancing, and juggling all in one. This is definitely a fresh new way to shred some dama.
Looks like some of the footage from Dama fest made it to japanese television. Pretty hilarious seeing Jake balance a dama on a beer with a giant question mark over it while in dolores park.
This was amazing, Imada rules and Ballard straight up killed it. The history of kendama is one of the things I’ve always loved about it. When I first starting playing coming across something like this about kendama that was in english, would have been impossible.It’s rad that kendama is growing and the japanese scene and american scene are mixing.
