First and foremost, sorry for the long delay! Life, as you all know, can get so crazy and busy. I almost haven’t even had the time to play kendama, but we gotta get our fix. From here on out the posts will increase and eventually become regular. Thank you for your patience and continued support!
Many long-time kendama players advice to make edit videos. These edit videos are compilations of kendama tricks you cut together and post online. Now if you’re anything like me, just the thought of posting a video of yourself online is scary. From the criticism of my skills as a player and video editor to the presence of yourself across the web. Freaky!
Now after doing some research and trying it out myself, first without posting it online. I can say I see the benefits of recording yourself play and sharing it with others. After viewing yourself play you are able to hone the tricks you find most difficult and refine the tricks you already have down. Sharing your video with others allows them a chance to learn something from you and can foster new relationships. Posting your videos online allows players from across the world, who would normally never interact, to communicate and bond over a shared interest.
After some difficult days chasing the sun around and looking for the perfect clips, here is my first edit video. Hope you enjoy and let me know what you think.
