KFOTD : my dad used to have a lot of paper with perforated edges. you know, the kind that has all the little circles on both sides? i still don’t know what those are for. anyways, sometimes he would ask me to take them off or i would just do it for fun. i would take those long, hole-y strips and fold two pieces on top of each other to make little paper accordion snakes. they became really entangled because they were so long, but i would spend hours on end on a sofa just folding one piece over another piece over another piece. i was probably 5 years old.

i really hope someone understands what i’m talking about.

Take note. A pull-up spike is all it takes to get 2+ million views.

The movement has begun in Sacramento. No longer is it the little leagues. If you’re looking for the real deal in kendama competition from the West coast, here’s where it’s at. In a collaborative effort with Elk Grove local comic shop, Metropolis Comix, the community of SacKendama pushed the limits to an upper playing ground. 

Being the first of many battles to come, The Uprising proved to provide the same level of fun and excitement you would get from a grassroots kendama event while raising the stakes. Players from all over the area, both new and current, have gathered to take a huge step in spreading the awareness of kendama and the positivity it brings to people. With well over 500+ people in attendance, we have proven that kendama is indeed the coolest thing around!

The Uprising is the first premier kendama lifestyle event in Sacramento which provided full authenticity to back up its introduction to the professional playing ground. The scene only gets bigger from here on out. =]

Hey guys,

This is DamaGuide
It’s a weekly-updated web video blog series about kendama that I’ll be doing for this summer season. If all goes through and people actually want me to continue making these episodes, I shall.

This series is intended to be a useful time-saver or just an overall assist if you’re trying to get your buddies into the dama world. Also, besides Kendama Joe, I haven’t really found anyone doing this type of stuff in short video form (even if someone else is doing this already, I plan to continue, since I have my own twist on this personal project; please let me know if someone else is doing this already though; it’d be nice to know).

SO, here you’ll find a mix of both common and uncommon reasons to buy a kendama. These are just my top five reasons. Feel free to tell me your’s! :)

-P.S. I’m always open to suggestions on future kendama topics to go over, so don’t hesitate to shoot me a message anytime!

Chris Do - Kendama Co - Pro Entry

Back at it again! Peep at the hard work my friend Chris has been putting onto his tricks to outdo himself. Crazy talent. We put out his second edit just recently, but he really wanted to showcase his current skills (since his second edit is filled with footage that spans over a whole year). This Pro sponsorship contest couldn’t have been any more than perfect timing. >:]
