KROM Kendama® is the world's leading kendama brand and one of the pioneers in developing and evolving the traditional kendama - bringing it into the 21st century. Our goal is to make kendama the biggest secondary sport in the world. We bring back good old play, through new interactive formats. We believe the quote:
“Play as if working and work as if playing”
can be applied to all of us. Focus on balancing the two needs to be increased, as the immersive digital world becomes an increasingly intense part of our lives. We simply love to play like back in the day, for the sake of the quality in our lives, hence our slogan:
As kendama was developing across the world, KROM naturally grew with it and the ideas of creating our own kendamas and becoming more involved in the community couldn’t be kept down. In the latter half of 2012 KROM Kendama went from mainly being a crew of homies playing and distributing kendamas to starting the learning process of creating the best possible kendamas out there. Leading up DAMAFEST 2013, the North American kendama championships, KROM started to pick up steam with the recognition of the clean dama designs and crazy tricks. Thorkild May and teammate Mathias Rasmussen ended up winning the American Freestyle Championships, laying down what has become a staple of the KROM image: the signature Danish flow and the recognizably funky kendamas.
Since then KROM has developed and grown even further, we’re constantly striving to represent the kendama community in the best way possible, and of course to provide the best possible products to all the supporters across the globe. With every new kendama, we’re determined to improve both the playability and the design. For these purposes and more, we’ve gathered the most winning team in the world, composed of internationally acclaimed players with several World and European championship titles, as well as a lot of homies to help us reach our goals.
We’re grateful to be able to take kendama to new heights through our work and we look forward to seeing where kendama takes us next. We’ll keep working to bring the joy of kendama to new people every single day. Kendama is unique in its ability to improve your cognitive functions and your hand-eye coordination while connecting people everywhere, even across language barriers, making us able to communicate all over the world. Kendama provides something real and tangible in a time where things are becoming more abstract than ever before.
We love the toy that lets us step away from an increasingly digital world, allowing us to refresh and reconnect with the people around us. We hope that you can feel our passion and affection through the products we create.
All the best,
The KROM fam
