Good times at the 2015 NY Toy Fair. Maybe Fox News doesn’t get it yet, but that’s ok. They’ll catch up eventually.
Check out their news coverage of the NYC toy fair including Kendamas where our very own Pros can been seen below.
The NYC Toy Fair is the largest Toy Fair in the world. 2014 was our third year in the show and we are about to head out to our fourth. Each year the Kendama USA crew heads out and jams kendama all day and night for 4 days at the fair. Even with all the other games and products at Toy Fair we always find ourself back with the kendama and jamming. Why? Because we truly love Kendama. Enjoy some of the footage from the Streets of NYC, Toy Fair, and the Ferry Session with the locals.
Dave was honored to have the opportunity to collaborate with Gloken on his recent Spike Hard Catch Low edit #3. During his last trip to Japan for Catch&Flow, Dave was presented by Yukka this rare Jumbo Snow-Gold Musou from famed kendama-maker Kazuma Iwata. Dave told Yukka that he would dedicate the Spike Hard Catch Low edit #3 to Gloken for gifting him this awesome Kendama.
“The sound and playability of this Kendama is unreal. I did by best to help capture what this Kendama sounds like while being played. It has deep clicks, not too tacky but forgiving tama grip and amazing balance feel.
Thank you Kazuma, Yuka, Tomatsu, and Zoomadanke for letting me experience this Kendama. ”
Special thanks to
Takeshi Kamisato (Duncan), Dominic Calimquim (Folken) and Carolina Herrera (E&R) for helping me film.
As the SoCal kendama scene grows, Kendama USA wanted to show it’s support by hosting a grassroots event where people can meet fellow players, learn new tricks, and expose kendama to those who might not see it otherwise.
Colin Sander, Kristian Aynedter, and Micah Marsh host the ‘Sesh @ The Lights’… a jam every 1st and 3rd tuesday of the month from 8-10 pm at the public-space sculpture ‘Urban Light’ at the LACMA in Los Angeles.
Bring some friends, make a trip to jam, Enjoy some mini games, prizes, and more. ** WARNING sesh may not actually end at 10pm : )
Hang with Colin Sander, Kristian Aynedter, and Micah Marsh in the MMAK apartment for a few minutes while they give you a look at what one of Colin’s sponsorship boxes holds. We open Ozora, TK, Krom, Sunrise, and Kendama USA Kaizen product and talk about the subtle differences between each and the things we like about them.
After mixing and matching tamas and kens to find that perfect pair & weight… a couple of tricks are laced to break em in. We love seeing all of the unboxing videos you guys do so thought we would shoot one from this side! Thanks for all the support and keep shredding.
