Hey all

Im John. Very new to Kendama, i was introduced to it through friend/work colleague when we went camping. I have recently bought my own and making progress through the simple basics. (i struggled with the spike for a while lol). Currently living in maidstone on kent, but from Wirral originally. Having loads of fun learning this  (and juggling also) I like the Rubiks cube as well. Well thats me really in a nut shell.

Hopefully will get the chance to meet up and learn more.

Thanks

Hi John,
Welcome to the forum. There are a few clickers who hang out at TWJC http://www.jugglingedge.com/club.php?ClubID=1& ([user]Orinoco[/user], [user]Topper[/user], Simon), in case you fancy meeting up with someone near you. Check out the tutorials at http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,905.0.html to get you on your way with some good technique.
Hope you enjoy it here, cheers,
Void
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!

Thanks Kev and Void, I appreciate the help. will most likely check out the TWJC when I can and see if I can make any meetings.

As for next year that'd be cool if i could make it as well. Maybe even enter the beginners session. 

Thanks again

Welcome Dominic, good to have you here.
We've seen a fair bit of LVKen activity on Instagram, looks like you have a nice active scene there. Hope you enjoy it here. While you're here, why not be the first LV pin in http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php?action=googlemap ? ;-)
Cheers!

Hi Joseph, welcome to the forum.
Guessing you might be in NYC from your user name. I think [user]MasterKatra42[/user], and possibly [user]Anthony A[/user] are still based around there too..
Cheers!

Hello,
My name is Jeffrey Italiaander.
I'm 21 years old and been playing Kendama for over 2 years now (That long already? :o).
This summer I achieved my 2nd Dan in Toulouse at the EKO. That whole week was just…. no words..
I've finally decided to be more active on the forum. Also because I'm gonna try all the Consistency ladders that were done in the past. NEED. CONSISTENCY. I think that's my thing.
That is all.. :)

Good to have you both here!

hi! I'm Will

I first started playing kendama about a year ago and since then I have been addicted to it!
my brother bought me my first kendama and at first I didn't play with it at first but after a month I took it with me on holiday
to rome, where I wouldn't stop doing it and would always be trying to land something. my brother was the one who taught me new tricks and made me progress, without him id probably still be stuck on spike!
he took me along to a meetup where I got to meet the void and other people. this inspired me and I loved being around them, playing games of ken, talking about kendama and just basically learning new things!
other than kendama I like to film and edit videos, I do a bit of magic and card manipulation, I like listening to music and watching films!

I just finished my first edit, view it here if you want!
http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,1439.0.html

thanks!
Will
