Online Skype K.E.N.D.A.M.A battles for fun and practice.
« on: 31 August, 2012, 19:41:49 »
I have been toying around with the idea of starting some sort of online K.E.N.D.A.M.A games for a bit of fun..

Would be interesting to hear peoples opinions on this or if anyone has any other ideas along the same lines. Obviously we would have to establish some sort of rule system etc..

What do people think about this?

I thought of a similar idea a while ago. It can be fun, but you will have the kendama too close to a computer, therefore suicide tricks may be extra-dangerous.

Ah yes, I suppose that could be a problem although it could be easily avoided with a few precautions ... :)

I think that "for fun and practice" it could work. If you start adding too many rules, it could get messy. And having tried to have a video-skype with someone the other night, the connection is never 100% reliable. And maybe K.E.N. or D.A.M.A. might be better....

But yeah, go for it.

It is very fun! I've done it with players such as James Mike before and I play with Jake Lowenstein often as well. :D
