    Hey @TheOkayest welcome to DS. We had a Introduction thread going so I merged yours over here so people can say "hey." I see you found our Sessions board. There are a couple of posts over there from Texas players you might be able to connect with if you're traveling around; Houston, Austin, DFW.

    My name is Ryle and I am from Pennsylvania in Delaware county. I have been playing kendama since February of this year. I love it because of the feeling you get when you land a trick you never thought you could, and how you can always be creative with it. I don't have Instagram but I will say that my favorite players as of now are Nick Gallagher and Adrian Esteban. If you've never seen them go watch some of their tricks. :)

    1) Hey brothers and sisters, my name is Sherman and I am 34. I live in Denver, Colorado and was raised in Summit County, CO. It has been about 2 years since the first time I touched a dama but I instantly knew it was going to be apart of my life for an eternity so I figured I might as well get started learning. Until just recently(aug '19) I only played for mindfulness, I decided to stop being lazy and started putting in the practice to learn tricks and consistancy I skipped over on my journey.

    I currently dont have transportation other than these walking shoes and RTD so if you wanna just hang out and are ever around Denver dont hesitate to hit me up on instagram @shermacadocious

    Kinda neglected instagram for years but I am gonna keep up with it so follow any or all of my follwers please.

    I hope everyone has a blessed day!

    Hey all!

    I'm Eli, a 41 years old software engineer, leaving in Israel.
    I've been playing and collecting yoyos for the last 10 years (probably have more than 60), and although I have had a few Kendamas over the last few years, I was never hooked.
    But that all has changed for me and for the last 3 months I haven't picked up a yoyo and been playing a lot of Kendama (well, a lot for a grown man with job and children ;) )

    My other hobbies are: software development (yea I know this is my job as well), photography, playing and writing music, listening to music(audiophile), roller blading, and of course family time which is very important to me.

    Currently my favourite damas are: Bishof pro mod and Analog DaveCher mod

    Glad to be here, and looking forward to be better at this!

    Hey guys! I’m Nate Carroll and I’m from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I have been seriously playing since the summer of 2019 but started in the summer of 2018. I’m always so stoked for all the new damas that are coming out.
