    Hey DS community!

    The KFZ is a resource where the Kendama enthusiasts of Memphis and the mid-south can connect and discover local events and jams. A goal of the KFZ is to help foster kendama awareness in the greater Memphis area, and demonstrate the value that kendama holds not only as a simple and fun wooden toy but as a tool for personal growth. “Improving yourself everyday,” is an essential element of the kendama-dō, the “way” or “path” of kendama, a concept described by John Geron of the Japan Kendama Association. “In Kendama-dō through practice you train your body and mind to move yourself higher, to become better; to be a person of not only of skill but integrity. Every activity from practicing and being taught to participating in a match are all considered training to cultivate yourself.” Discovering kendama is an enlightening experience, and hopefully the KFZ will facilitate a connection between Memphis and the global Kendama community.

    Thanks to all of the people that are helping make this happen and to anyone who wants to come out and have a kendama session. The meetups will be announced periodically in the public FB group and @Dama_Tommy on IG.
