I got it once on my enjyu when i was trying to get a 1 turn lighthouse that was pure luck because I'm not that good at kendama.


How do people make so the tip of the spike doesn't slip?
what is this? I dont even..


apparently most of them say they use sticky balls and blunt spikes...but sticky balls help.


Ok, i was trying to learn on a friends attack and wasn't sure if i was cheating or not. haha


It helps so much when your trying it on a sweets atack or an other tama which isn't slippery. I even landed a 1 turn boarders ballence like 2 times, and since I practice it a lot it will get easier on ozoras as well

You all know that Takumi Okada is "Boarder", right? And it's called that because it's his balance.

I've been experimenting with oozora kendamas and found that a plain wood grain works best of all, my yellow was almost as good for these.


 :o Sometimes I can't handle all the "Awesome" on this Forum. haha You guys are great.

Necro post, but with reference to "blunt tips and sticky paint", here's @Will T doing it with neither:
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!

Whaddya think about this madness?
EDIT: Not to fail to give a man credit, this is Sweets' own Taku Hatanaka, the serious man, with a Stilts > Tornado into BB. Jesus wept.

It'll be much easier to balance when you're focusing on the base cup of the ken.


its crazy to see how far dama has moved in a couple of years
