Kaizen Kendamas:

KAIZEN is the Japanese philosophy of constant improvement. Kendama USA applied this concept to their production process, aiming to improve every product that they put their name on for these new kendamas.

Each part of the Kaizen Kendama has been meticulously thought out by the Kendama USA team, making enhancements with the future of Kendama play in mind. The result is an affordable, premium Kendama specially crafted for the serious enthusiast.

The Kaizen Kendama features a 3 piece construction with traditional Japanese style ken assembly. They even updated the Ken shape for precision balance, and the tama bevel has been widened for enhanced play. They intentionally set the starting spike length shorter out of the box which allows the sarado (cross piece on the ken) to settle over time, eventually bringing the spike into an ideal length after a few sessions without going past the “point of no return.”

All these adjustments ensure you are going to get a fantastic playing kendama and if you follow the Kaizen philosophy of constant improvement you will be lacing new tricks in no time!
