Hello @crystal.ester.31 , welcome to the forum.
Your question doesn't seem to relate to this video - is it a general enquiry? Do you mean you have a kendama that wobbles? The cross-piece wobbles on the ken? No, that shouldn't happen on a new kendama, but on an old, heavily-used kendama, it may sink down a little, but it shouldn't wobble.

If that's not what you meant, let us know what you did mean.

Hey @crystal.ester.31 do you mean the second trick? At 0.09?

If so then yes, I think that's called a Ken whip.

Sorry trying to learn how to use this app. I have a new kendama and the part in the middle is sliding up and down wasn't sure if that's how they are or if I have a defective one . Thank you for the anwsers.

Hi @crystal.ester.31 ,
No problem.
Okay, so a loose sarado (cross-piece) should be pushed down firmly until it sits right. (Make sure you tug the ball away from the spike while doing this, to ensure the string isn't getting trapped inside.)
If you find that the cross-piece is sitting too low on the ken, then check out the video in this post http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,676.msg13979.html#msg13979 for a way to fix it.

Cheers!

Right, we split the thread, and moved it over to the Gear board.
Tagging you @crystal.ester.31 again, so you know what happened, and where! :-)
