YoDama Weekly Session

Every Saturday, 1-3 PM @ GUNNZO with Ryan Caro


YoDama Club is every Saturday! Stop by from 1-3 to play YoYo or Kendama, meet fellow players, and share your love of the game!

We will be doing “Dan Rankings” next Saturday, July 23rd during the YoDama session. “Dan Rankings” is a skill ranking system for kendama players, set up by the Japanese Kendama Association. Stop by to learn about the JKA, work on some new tricks, and get your skills officially ranked! Don’t be intimidated, because there are also skill level tests for beginners, which can help you learn the basic tricks.

When & Where:

Every Saturday 1-3 PM: GUNNZO San Diego

2445 Juan St. San Diego, CA 92110

Who: Everyone is welcome to join! Invite your friends and family to learn some kendama tricks! We have extra kendamas to borrow, so newcomers are welcome!

Why: To meet new friends, jam with old ones, improve your kendama / yoyo skills, get ranked, meet awesome kendama players, and share the love of kendama!

Hope to see you there!

*Please note that due to construction on Juan St. parking is somewhat limited, and you may have to park at the bottom of our hill in the Old Town general parking lot (on the corner of Harney and Juan) and walk up. Sorry for any inconvenience!
