Sweets coming with the weirdness on this one! Stoked to see new things being created in the dama community. I gotta get me one of these!
Women and kendama, sounds like a good combo to me. Check out Daniela’s edit number 5. She is clearly one of the best females out there. Both of us just won mugens in the Gloken contest as well! So congrats again Daniela and thanks again for doing the trade!
Check out this awesome video from inside the Yumu factory. Always wanted to see what exactly went on in a dama factory. Check out the other two videos on their channel as well.
Definitily the first dude I’ve ever seen doing this. Looks pretty insane, I wonder if you could do a lighthouse flip like that.
I found this awesome kendama comic strip online. I put together 4 different ones on this one page. I wish I knew what it was saying but you can pretty much get the gist of it. I love all the crazy expressions that all the pieces are making.
The Sac Dama dudes came out with a full length 45 minute film! The scene out there is so massive. It was hands down the biggest spot on our tour last year. It could be one of, if not the biggest scene in the us right now. Having kids start when they are really young has pushed dama to the insane level that it is at today. Every time I go out to Sac I’m just amazed at how good everyone is and how massive the battles are. The first battle started out in Jake’s backyard and now people are renting out the holiday inn. It’s crazy how big dama has gotten and I just hope it continues to grow.
Went out to help Wiens with his Gloken photo and we ended up shooting a few tricks because it was such a nice night. Don’t forget to vote for both our photos. Jake’s with me in it is #44 and mine with Jake in it is #50, confused yet? Just go here and vote 50 and 44!
Alex from Terra sent me over some pills and I can’t put them down. I just love how portable they are. You can just throw it in your pocket on the way out and just spacewalk while you cruise around. If you haven’t gotten one yet you really should. It helps you with your dama skills and the fact that it is so simple can be looked at as a bad thing. But I look at it as a good thing because then you have to challenge yourself into finding new and creative ways of shredding this thing. So go get yourself a pill!!!
We have been working hard to get more Ken Tsunas out to you. Before we did everything by hand and then had the logos lasered on. The place where we did the lasering is no longer available. So we ordered a custom stamp so we can apply the logos by hand. Now the ken tsunas will be 100% made by hand even down to the logo! We have about 50 made right now and are just waiting on the stamp. We should be getting that in 1-2 weeks, then we will stamp them and put them online. So be patient they are coming!!! Also we are working on getting a patent so that is also very exciting.
