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.
