Your edit should only have THREE of your best Kendama tricks (no more no less)
The theme of your final trick (the third trick) is originality. The more creative the better. Try to think outside the box and develop a trick or line that is your own. This trick may make or break your edit.
Your edit should be no larger than 90 seconds (1:30)
Edits will be judged by the KendamaUSA crew & The Cook
Your edit will be judged on: Skill, rhythm, creativity, flow, trick technicality, music incorporation, videography, and style.
First place: As usual, the winner will collaborate with the Cook to create their own Custom line to be sold on the KendamaUSA website. You will receive two of your customs…one to play and one to keep. Your edit will be posted to the KendamaUSA website and social media. In addition, you will receive a care package from the Cook consisting of one-of-a-kind Kendama, a one-of-a-kind Jumbo, stickers, tshirt, and more.
Second place: You will receive two of any Cook’s Customs product on the website plus a care package from The Cook.
Third place: You will receive one of any Cook’s Customs product on the website plus a care package from The Cook.
Will be announced on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter.

Upon many hours of debate the winner of the 2014 Cook’s Customs Contest is Joey Swisher. Joey’s edit brought an amazing mix of creativity, trick technicality, video professionalism and style. We are all very excited to work with Joey and design a one of a kind “2014 Cook’s Customs Contest Champion Kendama – Joey Swisher” sold on the Kendama website.
The second place prize goes to Nick and Zach Gallagher for their creative doubles tricks and amazing trick technicality. Their edit exhibited the fun and skill that should be shown in every kendama edit! Nick and Zach will receive a one of a kind blue to plum color shift kendama as well as two of any “Cook’s Customs” kendama they please.
The third place prize will go to Cullen Daniels and Evan Stout. These fun and skilled kendama players showed extreme skill, style, and professionalism through their entry. Their funny and artistic clips make the viewing experience fun and upbeat. Cullen and Evan will receive one of any “Cook’s Custom” kendama they please!
