We’ve got a burly trio of kendama videos for your enjoyment…plenty of impossible looking tricks to keep you busy this week. Thanks to The Kengarden for passing these along!
First up is a rare look at modern kendama play in Japan. Since most Japanese play is incredibly traditional, this is a really nice departure and a look at the possible future of Japanese kendama play and competition.
Boda x Sloooow
Next up with have a quick couple of bangers shot at 300fps in the “Boda x Sloooow” video. A lot of kendama tricks are so subtle and fast that slowing them down almost seems necessary…although I guess people say that about yoyos, too.
Bikes / Blades / Damas
And finally we have “Bikes Damas Blades”, a beautifully shot and edited video from Joker Productions. It’s interesting that the kendama contest scene is very underdeveloped compared to yoyos, but that their videos are regularly light-years ahead of ours. Priorities, man.
