SWEETS Kendamas-MKO 2016-Aura Kendama Prague Czech Shop
MKO - the Minnesota Kendama Open 2016 is an annual Kendama event held in the Mall of America.
This kendama event attracts many of the world best players to attend and compete head to head with rivals, Friends and new players. What makes this event special is the event organizers themselves - being the well know Kendama Brand - SWEETS Kendamas. Sweets are based in Minnesota and they came up with the idea to organize and held this wonderful opportunity for players of every level to hang out or enter to compete with some of the worlds best Ken players. The event builds up with a three day extravaganza with the best players entering the action finals held on day 3.
It is always wonderful to see so many players from around the world attend the MKO each year. The attraction is really special as people are able to spend and make time to attend the Sweets organized event.
A few tips from some of the players whom we spoke to were to bring enough snack bars to last throughout the event. There are some food halls in the Mall of America but the action is so hyped that it also helps with those bars for a quick fix. Of course this is a major Kendama event but try not to bring too many Kendamas, to the point where most of them will be left in a bag on the side.. A fine number could be somewhere in the region of 4-6 plus a spare or two. There will be a massive amount of sponsors at this competition which include Sweets, Fujin Kendama, Pineapple Kendama, Atlantic Kendama and many more....Each year it seems that the crowd attraction gains and more and more sponsors want to join this prestigious event. Which is a wonderful positive pouring out of Kendama love to all corners of the globe. Our big thanks goes out to Sweets for taking the time and arranging this MKO which will gain more supporters to this truly unique game.
