But I’ve never touched one.

Where do I even start? Is there really a noticeable difference between a 12 and 50 dollar kendama?

That is so Awesome! I just had a dream last night that I beat Evan Nagao in the 2025 Battle of the Planets Yoyo Championship! His finals tally was 12.5 and mine was 102.7 out of 100. I think my double backflip while doing Superman and Ladder Escape pretty much sealed the deal🤓

We have a lot in common; bro

That sounds nuts man, Evan didn’t stand a chance

Well, I had a trick up my sleeve. The Contest was held at midnight. Evan and I were doing a face off battle. At the stroke of 12:05am; my pet monkey flipped the breaker and the place went pitch black.
My tactical night vision goggles were Totally worth the 10 cents I paid on Overstock.com

If Evan only knew my Senior citizen nickname was Busta-moves; he would have saved himself from a losing battle.

I have an extra Kendama I can mail you if you want to try it!

Dude! Yes!

Time to fire up the google machine. I’m seeing the word kendama far too much to not know what it is. Time to change that.

Mind blown.

You have those dreams too?! I do not own a Kendama but I do know the basics and can spike the ball. Which one of these fellas were you in your dream. I will be the opposite of your choice.

There are a lot of differences between $13 and $50. They both will play well, but $50 is obviously going to be exceptional. I wouldn’t start with a $13 dollar kendama, because it dampens the experience. I would start at around $20. I would recommend one of these:

I could watch that vid every day.

I am amazed at anything I can’t do. I am astounded by anything I probably couldn’t learn if they tried to teach me.

And I am mesmerized by people that make really hard stuff look ‘easy’.

I think I recognize those two guys.

One is Bruce Lee and the other is Jackie Chan.

I would Love to see how judges would react to those guys on a TV talent show?

For some reason; more often than not; talent show judges just can’t deal with epic skill toy Skills. Their brains just can’t grasp the complexity of what is happening before their eyes.

But I have noticed many, many times the Audience is much more appreciative and able to recognize Awesome skills.

And I would call that 5 minute video a ‘Standing Ovation’.
