Kendama USA Presents – Kaizen Craft

We’re excited to launch the newest development from Kendama USA:  The Kaizen Craft.  This line of Kendamas is designed and hand crafted by Kendama players and manufactured right here in the USA. We are introducing 2 entirely new shapes: The Kaizen 2.0 and the Kaizen Slim.  Numerous improvements include larger cup sizes, arched cup rims, a refined slip stop, and a new sarado shape that slings amazing while keeping prime lunar balance.  The exceptional craftsmanship is unlike anything we’ve created so far, and we know you’re going to love it.  This is our Craft.

Joris Schweppe – Crowned Dutch Kendama Champion

On the 29th of October, the 9th edtition of Spikedama was held in Rotterdam; a city in The Netherlands. During the event, the Open Dutch Championship went down and our TRIBE team member Joris Schweppe took home 1st place. Competing against the former champion, Jeffrey Italiaander, Joris was all but defeated at 0-2 in Italiaander’s favor. Despite the mounted pressure, Joris stayed focused and managed to come back and win the final round with a 3-2 win.

It was one of the biggest turnouts of SpikeDama so far. The attendants came from all over Europe, it was the most international SpikeDama to say the least.

Joris won the competition on his Craft 2.0 Ash Kendama, which was released the same day at MKO In Minnesota.
Joris’ thoughts on the new Kendama:  ”Its my new favorite Kendama. I learned new tricks incredibly fast while playing it. The shape is so refined that when I picked it up, I knew I had to use it for the competition.”

The SpikeDama crew is planning to blast out another event early 2017, This will be the 10th edition so hopefully it will be a big one!

Joris Schweppe feat. B&W Kaizen Half Split

The Black & White Half Split Kaizen is one of my favorite Kendama’s from the Kaizen line.

Its perfect for tracking the tama during juggle tricks and when it gets honed in, its perfect for various stall tricks. I tried to combine both juggle and stall tricks in this edit and add some of my own creativity. I hope you enjoy it!

EKO 2016 @ the EJC – Recap w/ Joris Schweppe

The EKO has always been the place for all the OG Kendama players from Europe to come together. This year it was held at The European Juggling Convention, one of the BIGGEST juggle events in the world. It is super cool to see how Kendama take’s its own place in such big event with mainly just jugglers. It’s truly awesome!!

The competition was a blast, Rob Henman took 1st place and became the European Champion, I managed to take 6th place. The positive vibe’s are always really high at the EKO. Since most of the Kendama players are really OG and have known each other for a lot of years, it’s always bringing up good memories and great new moments at the event itself. Also the flow of new Kendama players new to the competition is really cool, It’s always nice to find out about people that had been shredding and finally come to their first event. Overall it was a great event with people from all over Europe, I hope to see everyone again next year or sooner!

Joris Schweppe joins the TRIBE.

Joris Schweppe has been selected by the one and only Keith Matsumura to join the Tribe!

“I met Joris when I traveled to Denmark for the European Kendama Open. I was instantly amazed at his skill with a Kendama, but as I got to spend more quality time with him I was even more impressed by his character and passion. He plays Kendama with incredible amounts of determination, focus, and creativity. I even had the chance to watch him become the European Kendama Champion. Joris loves coffee, tea, and is studying cinematography in his home country of Holland. I chose Joris as for Tribe because of what he represents. He represents hard work, progression and innovation of Kendama, diversity in interests, motivation, and trustworthiness. I’m glad to call Joris my friend and beyond stoked to welcome him to the Tribe!”                           – Keith Matsumura
