    What are the worst trends you see happening in Kendama today?
    For example, sketchy juggling or too many glamour shots.


    Personally I can't stand negatively charged forum topics.

    This for sure! I love when kids do like triple BB flip, then go to lighthouse, then tradespike or something. Like... you triple flipped but getting it on the spike is too hard? Really?

    Not to be super critical, but when you change the grip you have on your ken using both hands...

    This is not super critical. Adjusting like that is a NO

    Haha, yeah, but it's mostly noobies who does this, so it'd be super critical to criticize them if they did it when all they can do is landing cup tricks xD

    Catching the dama in the same cup it was already in... and then going for the spike. No kenflips, no orbits, no janks, nothing in between. Newer players tend to do these because of having trouble with the 'hole control', I guess.

    Going in to #handroll after you miss a trick. I blame 7-to-spike!
