Kendama USA

The 2012 Tribute Team is announced!


Kendama USA is proud to announce the Tribute Team for 2012. We strongly feel that every one of these players is a great representative for Kendama as a whole. Incredible skills, great personality, unique style, desire to teach others how to play, and an overall positive passion for all things Kendama. Much respect to Dave Mateo, Jake Wiens, TJ Kolesnik, and Keith Matsumura for their accomplishments.

Shout outs and big thanks to everybody who helped behind the lenses, and to Jake and the Kengarden for chopping it up!

  • I know Keith, he leaves down the street.


  • proud owner of a white with blue stripe tribute and there great and sticky from the get go

  • is it true that tribute kendamas are more sticky than others i need facts so i dont make a mistake

  • They are really great once they’re broken in well. A bit slick out of the box, just like TK16 or Ozora, but gets better and better the more you play them.

  • Hey Dave man you are sick when it comes to KENDAMA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ken damas are the best.

  • Kendama is my life

  • Dave on a scale 1 to 10 how good do you think you are i give you a big fat, 10!!!
