Kendama: Why?

"Elegant Simplicity. Infinite Complexity. Ultimate Fun."

Well, in case you need another reason apart from "it's fun!", you'll be amazed at how much exercise you'll get from playing with a kendama. When using the correct stance, just 10 minutes will get your heart pumping, and a half hour session of serious practise will leave you in need of a sit down.

Aside from giving the cardio-vascular system a work-out, you'll get the brain in on things too. The Japanese say kendama play promotes "shinen" & "kokoro no nebari" (concentration & persistence): important qualities in all aspects of life, not just when you're learning a new trick.

All in all, not bad for a little wooden toy!
