what is kendama

KROM Kendama® is the world’s leading kendama brand and one of the pioneers in developing and evolving the traditional kendama – bringing it into the 21st century. Our goal is to make kendama the biggest secondary sport in the world. We bring back good old play, through new interactive formats. We believe the quote:  “Play as if working and work as if playing” 

can be applied to all of us. Focus on balancing the two needs to be increased, as the immersive digital world becomes an increasingly intense part of our lives. We simply love to play like back in the day, for the sake of the quality in our lives, hence our slogan: PLAY LIFE

We bring back good old play, through new interactive formats.

We love the toy that lets us step away from an increasingly digital world, allowing us to refresh and reconnect with the people around us.

Specialty: Fast hands, candlesticks, and ghosts are some of my favorites. Lots of swaps and grip switches. 

Got into dama: Kendama was trending in Southern California in 2013/14 and by Spring 2014 it made its way to my middle school. I got my own kendama right before 2014 Summer break started, and I’ve never put it down since.
