Wibar will be the scene for this year's European Kendama Championship! Kendama is a traditional Japanese sport over 100 years old. A subculture with components similar to skateboarding or yo-yo, kendama is a discipline filled with talented individuals and boundless excitement. What used to be a traditional sport has transformed into a freestyle discipline of infinite possibilities.
The EKC has only had one edition before, the event was held in Copenhagen in 2019. The event was wildly successful, with ~100 people attending. This year we're expecting over 200 people, from a dozen different countries around the world! Some of the best kendama players in the sport's history will face off in a competition to crown this year's European Kendama Champions.
Everyone is welcome! If you've never heard of kendama or never tried, there's no better place to come discover it.
See you there!
