Dama Story
I learned about how fun Kendama is at a Zoomadanke event when I was 8. Since that day, Kendama has become something I couldn't live without. It has given me amazing experiences and the opportunity to meet and be taught by a lot of people. It has given me friends across the globe.

Thanks to all the people I met, I could discover the joy of Kendama. I am so grateful.

Sometimes practicing is rough, but if you persevere, you are sure to succeed, and when you lace after putting in that effort, it's awesome.

I hope to keep on with my kendama journey, continuing to experience new things and meet more amazing people.
