Here at Kendama USA, we believe that playing Kendama can be an eye-opening part of a complete adventure and sporting lifestyle. The Kendama USA team believes in the Japanese philosophy of Kaizen, a striving for constant improvement of one’s self. Many of the team members pursue other hobbies with the same deep fervor that helped them progress in the sport of Kendama. Whether it be skating, snowboarding, skiing, slack-lining, climbing, hiking, or gymnastics, our players pursue a variety of hobbies that can yield improvements from the lessons learned through playing kendama.
Sometimes after failing to grind out a heavy-duty trick on camera, or having fatigued legs from too many days of dama squats, it’s important to refresh your body and mind before coming back stronger. Enjoy this ‘Kendama Day-Off’ edit, featuring Colin Sander guiding you through a famous bouldering area in Pennsylvania, McConnell’s Mill. Colin likes to boulder to stay flexible and build hand and arm strength, while also getting to experience the outdoors. We encourage you to continue expanding your personal horizons, applying the lessons of balance, patience, and perseverance that kendama offers into the rest of your hobbies.
