*Pandoras Box
Is een spel dat ik zelf heb bedacht omdat ik eerst altijd in mijn eentje speelde en steeds moeite had met nieuwe trick te verzinnen en oude te herinneringen.
Zo begon ik ze op te schrijven.
Dit is uitgemond tot meer dan 70 trick (makkelijke en moeilijke ) in het 'vocabulair' van de Kendama boeken van The Void en andere termen vanuit internet. (bijv. shakemid)
De regels is dat er eigenlijk geen regels zijn en het is een goede manier om allemaal verschillen de trick te blijven oefenen.

For more info:
If you don't want to BUY MY BOOKS 😉, then why not ask your local library to order them in, and read them for free? That would help too. Cheers!

nedKendama @ SkateJam Delft 2011   after story

On 18th September 2011 in Delft ( The Netherlands) held behind a public skatepark on the grass field that separates to roads. Was the nedKendama area between trees.
On the SkateJam Festival, which is  held on the traditional carless sunday, the roads around this skatepark are closed what formed the terrain for this festival. 
About 14 kendama enthussiasts attended the games or just dropped by. And circa 20 kids and 8 adults showed the interests in the game.

After we arrived and build up our area, when the participants came dripping in. Unfortunately it started to rain and we had to roll up the floor again. For a while it looked like the whole competition wouldn't be able to proceed. But happily, ... when the rain stopped, it stayed dry the rest of the day.
After we put we the floor down, we were able to resume and it turned out to be a great afternoon.

A Game of KENDAMA .
There was a big group and it was a nice level of playing. A lot of Standard Tricks and also some very original ones.
Like Raul with a ' Body Catch' and letting the Ken spin in his hands. Dave with a 'stop-over big cup' continuing to a clamping on the center cup.  But unfortunately he just missed it. There were other tricks like done like; 'Bird over the Valley – In', 'Around Europe' and 'swing small cup Bird'. Justin had a nice with a 'hanging Lighthouse – Swing In'.
Jeffrey didn't had a great start but impressed everybody by a few good landing in a row and his very subtle   'Swing Bird'.

And done other trick were done like 'Birdie' (Bat) and a 'Bird - Bird Turn – Bird'.
Before the price giving ceremony there was a special 'Fire Poi' demonstration by Danny van Espelo. This was a cool one!!   (haha)

Rookie Award: Jeffrey Italliaander

Best trick: Awinash Panchu   -  a perfect 'Slip special – pin'  (normal grip)
