You better believe it, the Kendama is back!
Invented in the 1970's in Japan, this is a game of hand-eye coordination and it will keep you challenged for hours, days, weeks and months!
The kendama comes with a wooden ball (the tama or dama), a pre-strung length of string, and the Ken, or handle with two cups and a spike. The aim is to catch the ball in the cup or have it land on the spike. With enough practice (and patience!) you'll be doing all your favorite tricks like Oozara (big cup) and Kozara (small cup).
Improve your hand eye coordination, speed up your reflexes and improve your balancing techniques. As you practice, you'll build skills like patience and focus and enter the magical state of flow.
