I mean, this toy was invented in Japan, and based upon even more ancient toys also, NOT from America, so how can anyone in the U.S.A. be good enough to compete in the World Cup Competition?
Maybe this picture can tell you something about how good the USA players are at kendama tricks!
This is the World Championship standing for 2014 – see how many players representing the USA are on the list? AND, at the very top! 2014 Kendama World Championship was won by an American!d
How about 2015?
YEP, that too was won by an American! In fact 7 out of the top 10 champions are from the USA!!!
So, keep practicing and who knows maybe you too will represent the USA in the World Championships in Japan – and WIN!
