I am having such a hard time getting a flow in kendama. I can land individual tricks but can't seem to get a flow. Any advice? Sep 25, 2017

        gotta learn to walk before you can run.
        if you can land individual tricks, then soon you will be able to incorporate them into your flows.
        its similar to learning a new dance choreo or a basketball play. you practice it step by step and then execute it in real time.
        muscle memory plays a factor as well; its a lot easier to flow when tricks are like second nature to you

        @Nick thanks brother. I appreciate that. I am hard on myself and begin to get in my head and tank myself. ‍♂️ I will just kick back and enjoy the ride. Appreciate ya brother.

        Awesome! I'm almost at my 1 year mark (which is crazy) and I've been having a blast.

    35yrs young, born in Virginia. Have a wife and 3 beautiful children (2 boys (10/8) and 1 girl (4). Started playing Kendama May of 2017. Dama has become my new drug and life. So thankful for this sport so I can relieve the stresses of life one trick at a time.
