Each player has three attempts to successfully perform a trick. As soon as they do, they proceed to the next one. If they fail to do a trick in three attempts, they're out. The tricks must be performed in given order. Kendama used for performing a trick must be JKA approved (has JKA stamp on it). A player with smallest number of attempts is the winner. If there is more than one player on winning position (both overall champion and best Czech) with the same number of attempts, they must perform the same trick picked randomly from the group of advanced tricks. The one with the least number of attempts is the winner. The referee is Miroslav Šiřina, he does not participate in the event and his decisions are definite. The accurate date of the event will be declared as soon as the date of Festival Žonglování Čechy 2010 is known.
Czech kendama wishes you a great deal of patience with training.
