Kendama games workshop

Street games and juggling, in collaboration with Kendama Israel Center


Kendama is a game that combines creativity, balance and focus. You focus on the target, and flow numerous times until you succeed in fitting the ball to the spike. In kendama we practice hand-eye coordination in a way unlike almost any other game. When learning to play kendama, we help you acquire the proper techniques and start with the basic moves. In time you will learn new techniques and tricks by yourself and and turn yourself into a champion. You will enjoy learning how much you’re capable of.

The game’s origin is unknown, but it spreaded in Japan some 150 years ago and since has evolved into a popular competitive sport among children as well as adults. In Japan it even consists a part of the curriculum.

The game incorporates balance, focus, hand-eye coordination and concentration.

On its advanced levels, it enables endless creativity.
