February is just around the corner, but for Kendama players, it's much more than just another month; it's a time when players from around the globe spend 28 days honing new tricks and pushing their skills to new heights! 28 Tricks Later has become something we look forward to all year, it always excites us to see what everyone brings to the table. We've seen countless Never-Been-Done tricks in years past, but we also love to see players that progress from just learning cups on day 1, to surpassing all of their personal goals by Day 28.
Since the start of this challenge in 2017, the #28trickslater hashtag has accumulated over 103,000 posts on Instagram! We are so excited to see how many players participate this year!
This month is a challenge to yourself more than anything else. It is an opportunity to take a moment every day to hone in some dama skills and #CelebrateEveryLevelUp
#28TricksLater is an idea that came from our pro, Christian Fraser, in 2017. Here is a few words from him:
"#28trickslater was an idea that was inspired by two simple things:
1. My personal struggle with jamming one single kendama for an extended period of time, and,
2. Pushing myself and the Sweets team to really put in work and level up.
This challenge is 100% about personal progress and satisfaction. Each clip should strive to be something you have never done before, whether it’s a brand new trick or just one to personally level up. I’m so stoked that this idea has taken off and we are embarking on the 6th year of grinding. Remember, this challenge is for yourself and no one else! Have fun, put in work, and take the challenge day-by-day. Good luck!"
