  - Round-2: Try other 5 tricks in 180 seconds.  Use ONE kendama, but you can change to another one.

  - Top 16 players go to the Final Stage, and additional 4 players will be granted wild cards for the Final.

Final Stage

 

  - Go up to the stage, try different tricks from the list as many as possible in 180 seconds.

  - Points are the SQUARE of the trick's level.

   You will get 100pts from level-10 tricks, 81pts from level-9s, 64pt from level-8s, 49pts from level-7s, and so on.

  - Final Stage is not a tournament, competing by the total point you got. 

  - Use ONE kendama throughout the performance. 

  - Bring a CD with your favorite song longer than 3 minutes for your stage, if you want. 

 

 

 

Rules

 - Keep kendamas in excellent condition to avoid any trouble during the play.

 - Don't change or move the kendama's string position by your other hand during the play.
