Meetup/Workshop Series Overview
Experience the addictive hand held game, “Kendama!”
Kendama is a traditional hand-held toy long enjoyed in Japan by people of all ages. The toy is typically made of wood and has a special shape: a hammer-like short rod with a spike on top and three cups to each end. A ball with a small hole is attached to the main stick.
At our Kendama meetup here at RESOBOX, we encourage all Kendama players and curious potential players to join in and learn a few tricks, as well as show off their own! Our workshops and meetups range from beginner level workshops to Kendama competitions. Much like learning tricks on a skateboard, Kendama takes a lot of practice! Why not try it for yourself?
