I was first introduced to kendama a couple years ago by my friend and fellow musician SQUNTO who would bring his kendama everywhere to pass the time; backstage, in the car, at the airport etc. I finally got one myself as a Christmas gift last year and now I’m hooked! Also gotta give a shout out to Reed Stark for hooking it up backstage at Snowta 2018 with my own custom kendama and one of his signature models.
I really love how kendama improves my balance and all-around awareness. It almost makes you look at things in slow motion. I also feel like it’s made me a more determined person. I can’t walk away from my kendama until I lace that *one* trick. One more big thank you to the Sweets team for making this all possible!
