Welcome to the team!
We are extremely excited to officially announce the newest members of the Sweets Kendamas team: Taku Hatanaka, Zack Gallagher, and Nick Gallagher. Taku, Zack and Nick will now be representing Sweets Kendamas through our Homegrown Team, which is replacing the Cross Kens Gang. The existing CKG is now part of the Homegrown Team. Stay tuned for more details and updates about the Homegrown Team and why we decided to leave behind the CKG.
Taku has been one of our biggest supporters and favorite players in Japan for quite some time now, and we are honored to have him as part of the Sweets team. Taku’s high level of consistency and clean style make him one of our favorite players to watch. Taku is with the Sweets team in Japan this week competing at the Gloken Cup, if you’re at the Cup be sure to say hi and and congratulate Taku!
If you spend much time in the online Kendama community, you probably know a little something about the Gallagher twins. Nick and Zach hail from the great state of Washington (it should probably just be called the Kendama state by now) and these up and comers have been consistently improving their skills and are constantly sharing with the community. Catch Nick and Zack landing insane bangers in the Dama Dare group on Facebook, you’ll probabaly have a pretty hard time stumping them
