Cheers @The Void  @shalafi (Nice string flow by the way!)

Yes 30 mins flew by. It obviously is nowhere near long enough to get kids, ranging from 5 to 15 anywhere near proficient (or parents), even at just a big cup. But everyone had fun and there was talk of doing it again, perhaps even once a month but we'll see. Also I think seeing what other tricks are possible really helps peek peoples interest not just cups, spike and moshi kami.

And probably what interested most of the Japanese parents, was how comes I was so interested in and had got reasonably good at playing kendama in the first place!

If there is a next time i'll ask if we can get a couple of pictures for posterity.

I forgot something from Monday: It was one of those moments where you're explaining to someone how ridiculously hard a trick is, and then land it while doing so. Another fluked 4-Turn Aeroplane in the bag for me - with witnesses!  :)

Thought I'd actually spend a bit of time with something I'd been meaning to conquer for a while now, around the bird over the valley. Took a bit of work, but managed to land it 3 times in about 30 minutes - definitely looking forward to becoming more consistent with. :)

Nicely done , John. 

Was having a bit of a "conquer" session myself the other day.  With a bit of grinding, I managed to land clifftop - earthturn to bat- fasthand one turn aeroplane,  and a bit later I got boarders - orbit one turn in.  Both of which, I'll freely admit, are a bit above my pay grade :)
