    What are some of the most ridiculous things you’ve seen in kendama? From players, companies, events, etc

    Entry one. Bonz jumping in the fountain at the hotel lobby at MKO a couple years ago.

    Not really seen, but I heard that Bonz and a few other guys got arrested in Japan for playing Kendama in front of a 7-Eleven. The owner thought that they were a Nunchaku gang and called the police on them; Tamotsu and the GLOKEN personnel had to apologize and explain to the police that Bonz was the kendama world champ to get the players released.

    Ohh lol I remember the infamous #FreeAynedter moment at MKO a few years ago.

    KA got arrested for getting his kendama stuck in an art display in the Mall of America.

    That was very ridiculous lool. Wiens had '#FREEAYNEDTER' shirts airbrushed at a kiosk in the mall, for the GT squad to wear on Sunday.

    I cannot confirmed this happened, but during MKO 2018 I heard that Bonz had jumped from the balcony of his 2nd floor hotel cabana room into the pool.

    Not really ridiculous, but I love how kendama edits shot in Japan make Japan look so magical.

    Not as ridiculous as what we (meaning @Emil Apostol and I lol) have posted but just saw on fkc someone doing a giveaway for a Sweets Target dama.
    Again, not as ridiculous but who does a giveaway for a $15 dama you can get at your local Target (in the US) lmao
