Kendama USA

New Pro Team Member announcement

We are proud to announce Alex Smith as the winner of our annual contest, and the newest addition to the Kendama USA Pro Team.

Alex’s edits clearly showed a wide variety of talent and professionalism. Amazing tricks, technical ability, creativity, lifestyle, personality, and production value. He has already made a positive mark in the Kendama community, and we couldn’t be happier to have him as part of the family here. If you haven’t seen them already, make sure to check out his edits below.

We also want to tip our hats to everybody who entered this year, and especially those who came very close in the 2nd round. The quality of the entries absolutely blew our minds, and we have immense respect toward everybody who participated. It was by far the most difficult contest we’ve ever had to judge, so hold your heads up and give yourselves the well deserved credit for what you accomplished. We hope you had a fun time making the edits, and can’t wait for next year.

much respect
-Kendama USA

Round 1

Round 2


    i thought it was the U.S.A team?

  • I thought it was the USA team?

  • It is, but they let people from around the world compete! And I agree with this decision! Even though there were a whole lot of good people that would fit the spot, he fits it the best. Creativity, style, and just straight up steeze! He’s one of my favorite players! Good job Alex!! You sure deserve it!!!!!!!

  • Happy for Alex but was so hoping for Dave Mateo.

  • what color is he goung to pick for the pro model kendama

  • It’s not the U.S.A. team. It’s the kendamaUSA team. So it’s not for this country it’s for the business itself. Because it’s for the business they allowed anyone anywhere to enter.
