For me Kendama in general is many things. I like to think of it as a tool that has helped me get through life. It really teaches patience, keeps you chasing for something new or challenging, and creates an environment that cant be explained unless you are physically there to experience it. Kendama has given me more than I could ever ask for without even asking. If we apply the same efforts and dedication we put into life the way we play Kendama, there would be no end to our perseverance. Give challenges in your life the same chance that you had given to land your hardest trick and move with the same dedication to the next one.
