  • The Oscars... The Emmys... The Espys... and now, The DOWNSPIKE awards! *not actually Colin's hand. So much of Kendama happens behind the lens, and not during a live competition.

Downspike, together with our ad partners, present one big night of fun, honors, and laughs, livestreamed from MKO. Categories include things like: EDIT OF THE YEAR, BEST TRICK, and BEST FEMALE PLAYER The winners will be voted on by YOU! Shout out to OC kendama who did the Citrus awards in 2016. That was a first.

    FORTRESS UNDER THE BRIDGE New video in the magical spot I found a few days ago. Everything recorded in one day. Quick edits like this feel super good and I recommend making them. Playing with the new fortress tower shape. Feels unbelievably good in hand, especially for juggles.

    “This film is a culmination of footage from our monthly jams, community submissions as well as other random stuff - almost entirely filmed over the last 8 months. The idea was to both spread the word, letting everyone know about the kendama scene which is growing here in Scotland, as well as pin-point our progress as a community and as individuals. It is now our dream to continue to move the kendama scene forward in the UK, organise bigger events, throw more comps, give away more prizes, host more special guests, have as much fun as possible and play even more kendama than ever before. A massive thanks goes out to all the contributors who sent in clips, for coming to the jams, getting your friends involved – without you we would not have a scene. Dama on fam, see you in the next one.” - Paul Sayer, film editor/SK founder BUY A T-SHIRT, SUPPORT YOUR HOMIES www.soundkendama.com FOLLOW US IG/Twitter/Facebook @soundkendama

    A message from Yourd - Edit #7 is special. It not only encompasses innovative kendama play, but also tells a story that is dear to my heart. As I leave my beloved hometown of Pittsburgh and transplant to Denver, one chapter ends and a new begins. In it's entirety, this edit was filmed chronologically over the span of 2 years. The tricks captured were methodically composed to showcase the endless possibilities and aesthetic appeal that I find in kendama. Being dormant from a full length solo edit, I accepted nothing but perfection and pushed myself like never before.
