My parents’ store used to sell these toys called Kendamas (or cup-and-ball) and I’ve pretty much seen them all my life but I never thought there was much of a market for them elsewhere. It turns out there’s a small group of folks who practice with the Kendama very intensely and have even started Kendama battles to show off their skills.

Shown below is one such example of somebody who’s particularly good at playing this game. Check it out and also enjoy the neat type tracking in the video. [via]
