Kendama Club Spotlight: Clan Kendama

Clan Kendama is one of the newest clubs in the southeast and has been making a splash in the community with their edits and Instagram posts. In the short time they have been a Kendama USA Club, Clan Kendamas has made 16 Youtube videos including five full-length Kendama edits, and have become very active on Instagram.

Gibson, Cameron, and Owen are the founders of Clan Kendama. This trio made Clan Kendamas official just three months ago (September 2017) and have already grown the club to 15+ members. The three founders expanded their club to three different states including Tennessee, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania.

The club is spreading the Kendama love every day. They have helped dozens of players get their first Kendama and continue to introduce the game to anyone that will listen. According to Owen, Clan Kendamas helps to bring together the community outside of just Kendama players by giving kids a safe place to be themselves and to enjoy another’s company. “We inspire people to enjoy the journey, persevere, and believe that any goal is achievable,” said Owen.

Clan Kendamas meetup bi-weekly to jam and hope to open their regular jams to the public soon. The club is always ready to jam with anyone if you message them on Instagram @clan.kendama

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.
