Kendama in the Olympics (well, sort of...)
« on: 08 August, 2021, 13:13:27 »
I spotted Yusuke Ito playing kendama in the closing ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics!  How fantastic. I wonder if one day it might be... even a demonstration sport? 😃

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!

That's really cool.

To make an olympic sport we fist would need to come up with a consistent rules for competition. Maybe just freestyle.
