Hey guys. Of course, I’ve been aware that Kendamas have been popular in the community for a while now, but I was never really all too interested. I’ve seen a few in toy stores and such, but never picked one up due to lack of interest and the assumption of a lack of quality do to where they were being sold.
Yesterday I was walking through a local shop and they had a Kendama out for people to try. I picked it up and was able to hop the tama between the cups and things along those lines. That was the first time I’d ever used a Kendama, and I was hooked.
I bought a Tribute Kendama from Kendama USA. From what I’ve heard online, this is a decent Kendama. Right away I was able to hop the tama back and forth between all the cups, and I got my first spike in a few minutes.
Now, I can land a spike more times than not, go between the cups and the spike, airplane, swing spike, candle, and I can get a bird and an earth turn here and there.
Point of the story, Kendama is way more fun then I expected. I’m considering buying a new Kendama, possibly one from Sweets.
Any recommendations? Thanks.
