So this is a kendama ball with a big groove in it like a yoyo. The kendama world and yoyo world has been merging a lot recently and this is a direct result. Definitely some really rad things can come of this. Can’t wait to see more and get my hands on one.
Alex Ruisch hit me up and wanted to get some GT-1 Spectrums, so of course we hooked him up. But before I sent them out he wanted me to give them to Sourmash so he could have some custom painted tamas that matched. And as you can see Mash fucking killed it! These things just look so amazing. I’m stoked to say these are from Jake and my company, our good homie painted them and they are going to a legend. Enjoy them Ruisch!
So this is the first of what we hope to be many more community edits. Usually edits are all about one person or all about one company. We wanted to bring everyone together with the shared love of the Grain Theory kendama. All companies, all countries, all skill levels welcome. Enjoy.
Ballard put together this awesome piece on “Iji”. KROM’s newest pro from Japan. He has that Dave Mateo dancing swag going on. This is a totally new style of kendama that you don’t really see very often. It’s amazing to see the Japanese and Worldwide scenes merging, only great things can come from everyone coming together as a global community. Nice work on the chop Ballard and stoked to see more from Iji.
Fellow Terra pro Rodney Ansell ripping like only he can. Rodney is one of the most impressive players I have ever seen in person. The stuff he does in videos he can pretty much do right in front of you on command. Good luck in the comp Rodney and hope Van is treating you right.
Keith getting down with some vinyl. Ripping as usual and that mug is too sick. This may turn into a regular series so I’m really stoked to see what else Keith comes up with.
Bryan Hansen just put out this sweet little promo of some wormhole trickery. It’s so rad to actually have people finally playing our damas and making videos of them. Thanks for the support BHC!
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.
The homie Kristian coming thru with the mental juggling steez! Good luck in the comp man.
This series is so damn epic! Dude is getting tricks you couldn’t do standing on camels and pyramids! This India section I’m pretty sure is my favorite part. Sit back and enjoy some epic footage with some gnar tricks.
