Tj Kolesnik traveled to Japan for the Tokyo Gift show with KIT Corporation in February. Flying solo this time, he had the opportunity of meeting up with Thorkild May for the entire week. They spent 3 days at the Tokyo Gift show playing and demonstrating Kendama, and a day appearance at Sports Authority to demonstrate Kendama for the local Japanese players. Check out this video of what it is like to travel as a professional Kendama player.

After a canceled flight that left me stranded for 14 hours at NYC LaGuardia airport I decided to make the best of my situation and landed 1 trick every hour until the next morning. I have been long overdue for an edit and I am happy to be getting this one out.
I had a lot of fun while filming this edit, it was a very interesting experience and I met a lot of cool people that night. Huge shout out the the 24hour coffee shop workers for fueling me.
Thanks for watching! you can pick up one of my Pro models right here!
Good times at the 2015 NY Toy Fair. Maybe Fox News doesn’t get it yet, but that’s ok. They’ll catch up eventually.
Check out their news coverage of the NYC toy fair including Kendamas where our very own Pros can been seen below.
Read the full story here.
The NYC Toy Fair is the largest Toy Fair in the world. 2014 was our third year in the show and we are about to head out to our fourth. Each year the Kendama USA crew heads out and jams kendama all day and night for 4 days at the fair. Even with all the other games and products at Toy Fair we always find ourself back with the kendama and jamming. Why? Because we truly love Kendama. Enjoy some of the footage from the Streets of NYC, Toy Fair, and the Ferry Session with the locals.
Dave was honored to have the opportunity to collaborate with Gloken on his recent Spike Hard Catch Low edit #3. During his last trip to Japan for Catch&Flow, Dave was presented by Yukka this rare Jumbo Snow-Gold Musou from famed kendama-maker Kazuma Iwata. Dave told Yukka that he would dedicate the Spike Hard Catch Low edit #3 to Gloken for gifting him this awesome Kendama.
“The sound and playability of this Kendama is unreal. I did by best to help capture what this Kendama sounds like while being played. It has deep clicks, not too tacky but forgiving tama grip and amazing balance feel.
Thank you Kazuma, Yuka, Tomatsu, and Zoomadanke for letting me experience this Kendama. ”
Special thanks to
Takeshi Kamisato (Duncan), Dominic Calimquim (Folken) and Carolina Herrera (E&R) for helping me film.
