I wanted to see what all the hype was about and so i bought a kendama for $3 from suntek in china. Well, today is day 2, and I dont get it. I know the proper grips (using the pencil), I can get it in the 2 big cups each try, but thats it. Can't get it from one to the other, cant get it on the spike, i dont get it. I dont understand, why is it becoming popular? Its not like its super exciting to progress, so i dont really understand what the pull factor is that keeps people's attention. Am I missing something?
sorry for the rant, and to those who do 'dama, no hate is intended, just looking for a little insight into your hobby.
