Kendama USA is back for Atlanta JapanFest!

The Atlanta JapanFest is returning to the Infinite Energy Center on September 16th and 17th. We have been a part of this festival for a few years now and are happy to announce our return in 2017!

We always have an AMAZING time at JapanFest.  There are incredible performances on their stages. From dancers to drummers, karate to swords, there’s something for everyone to experience and enjoy.

Check out the entire performance schedule here!

In addition to two days packed with performances and demonstrations on their multiple stages,  JapanFest also has a variety of vendors to buy Japanese goods from. There are food vendors with delicious cuisine,  game booths for the kids,  Japanese attire and knick-knacks, anime booths, and of course… Kendamas! Our booth is right next to the front door too, jamming all day and lots of Kendama deals, you can’t miss us.

The festival is family friendly and admission is only $10 for a day of fun (under age 6 is free if you need to bring along the little ones).

We also will be teaching workshops this year in Workshop Room 2 – Saturday at 12:30 and Sunday at 3:00! We will be teaching the basics and perhaps a few more advanced tricks also, depending on the student ability. We may even end with a little mini game and giveaway!

Snag your ticket now and we’ll see you there!

Throwback Kendama Open (TKO) Recap

Throwback Kendama Open (TKO) was a great event. Over 60 players from all over the country came together in Clarksville, Tennessee to jam & compete. Kendama USA Tribe member Zach Porter attended and local crews DKT, GVK, & the Grande Squad also showed up. Needless to say, there was a lot of talent there. The event had fifteen sponsors and many prizes were given out during the mini games, freestyle event, and the speed ladders. The vendors there were Sol Kendamas, Kendama USA, All Out Damanation, and Pineapple Kendama. The weather was brutal but most of the people that attended stuck it out through the heat and the rain for the entire event.

The advanced ladder was beyond intense; here are the top four after it was all said and done:

1st: Liam Rauter

2nd: Alex Mitchell

3rd: Jacob Womack

4th: Austin Ring

A HUGE shout out to Chad Covington and Sol Kendamas for throwing a banger of an event, here is the edit for Throwback Kendama Open 2016.
