A couple of her favorite Kendamas used were Sweets Homegrowns, REZ Kendamas, Grain Theory Kendamas, and other rare set-ups. A couple of her favorite tricks were Around SoCal, Tradespike variations, Butterfly, and Lollipop, a balance/string/tension trick she came up with 2 years ago!
Without missing a day, she pushed and challenged herself to play Kendama, even for 5 just minutes. Rain or shine, hot or cold, she always found a time and place to practice after work or on her days off. During the 100 days, other Kendama players were inspired to do similar “Kendama trick a day” series as well! She hopes to continue to inspire other Kendama players to play, practice, to never give up, and to always have fun everyday with Kendama!
