Quick question about my usable/or maybe not to usable Kendamas at the NRC?
is a Kawasaki TK16 allowed? Just wondered with the paint being for crotch rockets and all :)

Hi Adam,
Welcome to the forum.

Although the TK16 is a BKA-approved kendama, I think the custom paint job would have to count as it being modified, so unfortunately for you, it's not allowed. We do have the rule that competitors have to own their own kendama, but I think in this case you would probably be allowed to borrow a kendama from a friend (or us) to compete with. After all, we want to be *in*clusive, not exclusive.

Cheers.

That's fine :)
By the time of the NRC I'll have some new ones, at least now I have time to get some and think about whether they'll be allowed before it was too late to do so.

I need to stop buying slightly 'fancy' Kendamas if you will...
I currently have a White rabbit Oozora, blue Rakurosen, Kawasaki TK and a sealless Mugen :')

Not a good collection as far as competing goes. ahaa

Oozoras definitely going on the Christmas list!
Maybe a Shin Fuji and a TK or two as well.

We just added this specification to the rules:

For all tricks, no adjustment may be made to the grip during the trick (unless this is a specific requirement of the trick).
