Iijima Hiroki : Portrait of a Kendama Samurai by Matthew Ballard

It’s no secret, there’s a bunch of us at GR who play kendama. We’re all newbs and pretty much suck, but the fella who started us out is Krom sponsored pro, Matt Ballard. He makes videos super well, and this is his latest about a kendama player from Japan named Iijima Hiroki who mixed kendama and dancing. You won’t see any of us do anything like this, including his tricks. He’s quite great.
