Kendama World Championship 2019 - KWC 2019
The Kendama World Championship takes place annually in Hatsukaichi, Japan. Hundreds of Kendama players gather here to compete against each other for the title of the best player in the world. Players are either cast out by their sponsors as team members to represent certain brands of the sport, or they come privately with their own resources to be just there. Not only the Japanese Kendama manufacturers, but also brands from western countries such as the USA and Europe, have long been one of the big brands of Kendama Sports. These include today mainly from Western countries: Kendama Europe, Kendama USA, Sweets Kendamas or Krom Kendama. The Japanese brands include Ozora Kendama, Mugen Kendama or TK16 Kendama.
