How to Big Cup

How do you do Big cup???

Big Cup is one of the easiest kendama tricks and should be the first trick that you learn. Just like every other trick, Big Cup can be learned with a little practice and the use of the right technique and kendama. Here is a guide to what you will need and some tutorials.

What you will need:

When learning Big Cup you can use any kendama. I would recommend using a kendama with big cups, sticky paint, and hard wood to make the trick slightly easier. 

Kendamas I recommend

1. Cobra Kendama Zebrano Stripe

2. Cobra Kendama Sapele Stripe

3. Cobra Kendama Rubber Solid

All of these kendamas can be found in the shop section of our website and will be best for big cup when they are brand new.


1. Pull the ball straight up ( don't swing it up ) and hold the ken in either ken or sara grip.


Here is a tutorial by YoTricks, a company that makes kendama and yoyo tutorials.

I hope this guide helps you guys learn how to Big Cup!
