One thing is for sure, Kendama has infiltrated the yo-yo scene and it was definitely apparent at The 2013 California State Yo-Yo Championships. Gabriel Lozano (Duncan Crew USA, YoYoNews.com, Sector Y) put together this great video that gives a glimpse at what it was like to attend this years event. The tricks in this video are all breath taking, both yo-yo and kendama alike. Keep an eye out for Gabriel Lozano and Paul Escolar of Duncan Crew USA as both drop some insane tricks in this amazing video!

It was sad to bid farewell to Kansas, but we quickly discovered that Missouri had plenty of fun in store for us. One of the coolest surprises was the store that we were demoing at, Dick’s 5 & 10 – trust me, you have to see this place to believe it. It was packed wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling with pretty much everything you can think of, a sensory overload in the best sense of the world.

Though we could have spent the day just marveling at the store, we were there to yo-yo, and yo-yo we did. Hank gathered quite a crowd in front of the store while Takeshi & I talked tricks with people inside, many of whom were delighted to see yo-yos for the first time in years. A sudden heavy rainstorm (how heavy? Check out the picture of our van!) brought waves of traffic into the store hoping to dry off, and we were very happy to entertain them. It was also cool to see two separate local news stations send out cameramen to check us out and film some tricks.

Branson was a super cool stop overall, and huge thanks to Dick’s 5 & 10 for having us. From there, we rolled into Springfield to do a morning news spot with KOLR 10, which was also a fun time. We’d like to give a special shout-out to The Hub Coffee & Bicycles for hangin’ out with us and being way cool – if you’re ever in Springfield, definitely go see them.

It’s been an awesome week, and we’re super appreciative to all the stores that had us, all the yo-yoers that came to hang out, and all of the people who watched us, said hi, or learned a trick. Much love… we miss you already!
