    Here's one for good measure. . . from Steezy. Started the video at the kendama part but the rest is entertaining too.

    I can personally take the word steezy back to the early 2000s with the ski and snowboard community, but not sure if it was used less popularly before then. But the word is rooted and derived from the word style. To have steez or for something to be steezy just means having good style!

    Thanks for this. This word literally has been used so much on insta lately and I’m like what? Lol. Thought I would check this downspike thread and bam.

    I never made the connection until now, but I'm thinking that steezy is Snoop Dogg-ese. Like House=Heezy. For shizzle

    Steeze dates back to mid to late 90’s when rap duo gangstarr put out “you know my steez” steez steeze or steeze is all just “Style with Ease”. Method man used steez in a verse on Shadowboxin by Gza and then DJ premier used the verse as a sample for the Hook “You know my Steez”.

    Nagata means you touched in Hebrew.
    Like in a game of ken, someone thumbs a lunar, NAGATA NAGATA!

    What do you call a very clean spike where the ken doesn’t even touch the sides of the bevel
    and tama hole? Someone shared the word for that on another thread.

    Hi everyone, I'm into kendama since march, spent a lot of time on forums, youtube channels and so on. But most of these ressources are in english, and as a french player even if I'm quite confortable with english language, some terms are still unclear.

    Is there a difference between lacing and landing a trick ?
    What is precisely a banger ? Or jamming ?

    I have the main idea of these terms, but could someone help me with a more precise explanation ?

    Admins, feel free to move that thread into the beginners sections, and thks a lot for your work ;)

    PS : Writing this post I just found that "sesh" comes from "session"... lol
