Welcome to the new decade, dama players. Here's what the next decade looks like. New shapes, new tricks, new edits, new players, new pros, all wrapped up in the same amazing community.
On January 3rd and 4th, Sol continued to coordinate and operate the longest-standing event in the United States: Battle at the Border. Hosted annually at Rocketown in Nashville, TN, we choose to kick off every year in grand style with a fun, yet competitive event to help ensure that the kendama scene stays alive and well.
Here's a list of things that happen at BATB:
We left out one major bullet point....
A lot of you will probably say: a long time coming. We agree completely. Alex has been honing in his skill, his community, and his pro model. It is modeled after the Tokyo subway system, and is going to be amazing. It is tentatively releasing and will be available in February 2020.
Shelton and Chad are so thankful to have the opportunity to serve the kendama community, whether it is hosting an event, creating new kendama designs, refining kendama shapes, or making a podcast.
Here's to a huge next year, and a huge upcoming decade. Hang in there with us, we're ready to rock and roll.
