    Hey fam!

    Just want to update all the homies on what life has been like since Kendama Co shut down and we all moved onto different kendama paths!

    Its been a fun time spreading this game to different schools throught different states, along with people throughout the country. Working for Kendama Co and becoming a pro player was something I never thought for a million years i would fall into. I put alot of passion into that company along with my teammates and co workers. It was nothing but love wifh the CO!

    After joing Lyon soon after that depart, I kept on pushing the game in Denver and visiting schools while doing local jams, as per usual.

    As of recently, I have had to depart from Lyon Kendamas due to my baby being born in Aug. I wanted to provide full attention to kendama but with my baby on the way, I have had to put in longer work hours. Still slaying daily, I decided I would take a step away from kendama "work" for now.

    Ill be moving back to Miami FL, my hometown, where I will be spreading the game through all different schools, camps, rehab centers, and dispensaries. Creating a fun, active, and in alot of ways medicinal community for kendama. (S/o east coast dama boiz)

    Im ganna continue to persue my passion of being an active ambassador for Kendama globally.

    THANKS FOR READING!
