Miya Song Top 5 DAMA Setups

 

CCS tamaKeyaki Ozora Ken
The CCS•keyaki is a very sentimental setup to me. I used it to compete in MKO which was my first real event. Not to mention the colors go extremely well together.

Natty Classic
I’ve been jamming my natty classic non stop and has grown to become one of my go to setups. I love seeing the work and break in put into a Kendama, especially natty’s.

Green Ozora
A green Ozora was my first Kendama and is still one of favorite Kendama to play till this day. I love the classic feel of an Ozora and it always brings back memories of my first tricks.

Half Split Kaizens
Half Split Kaizens are one of my favorite Kendamas from Kusa. They’re extremely jam-able and colors always come correct.

Zebrano tamaTk-16 Ken
The zebrano•tk-16 is probably one of the best natty setups I’ve played to date. It breaks in perfect for stalls, durable, and looks super clean in my opinion. A solid jammer forsure.

Introducing the KAIZEN Kendama

KAIZEN.  The Japanese philosophy of constant improvement.

To us, Kaizen is about striving to become better than we were yesterday, even in the smallest details.  It’s about never giving up, and never settling for mediocrity.  The Kaizen mindset inspires us to continuously refine our craft, and stay focused on creativity and innovation.  Since Kendama USA was founded, we have approached our Kendama play, our products, and our company with this concept at our core.  We have come a long way since we started, but we’re always looking for ways to improve. With input from players all over the globe, we have made improvements to our production process, our handle shape, and the finest details of our products.  The result is a premium Kendama specially crafted for the serious enthusiast. Each part of this Kendama was meticulously thought out by the Kendama USA team with the future of Kendama play in mind.

The Kaizen Kendama features a 3 piece construction with traditional Japanese handle assembly. We have updated the Ken shape for precision balance, and the tama bevel has been widened for enhanced play. We’re also excited about our refined silk paint, which adds extra durability and grip. Balance and spike length were a very important consideration when designing this line. On many of our favorite classic style Kendamas, it would be really frustrating when the spike length was perfect out of the bag, but would settle far too low on the Ken after playing for a few days. The Kaizen bevel intentionally starts shorter out of the box, so that it will settle into an ideal length after a few jam sessions without easily going past the “point of no return”.

We are proud to finally release the KAIZEN Kendama. Available today in beech, padauk, and cherry wood models. Get yours today in our online shop HERE.
