Hey @kendamatty , this is super swingy! Nice job! I'm terrible at controlling those re-swings. Meanwhile, I've got a hat like that.... in black. :)

Today I have started to work on practice towards my pre Dan and 1st Dan gradings. I am aiming to achieve these by the time BKO comes around so I can do some gradings for others while I am there.
The moshi kame practice is the killer. Anyone got some insight on effective ways to improve in this.

@johndmc I find a soft grip very helpful with Moshi Kami. Helps cushion and absorb any wayward catches!

Cheers dude, I'll message you at some point for a grading if that's OK, won't be for a while, got a lot of practice to do.

Found a brief moment of daylight to go out for a play.  Managed 1 turn lighthouse to boarders to lighthouse, some reverse swings to naughty bird, and few other weird things before the temperature drove me back indoors. 
I also had a formation flypast from six swans (this is not a trick name...:) )

Presumably the swans were showing their approval, Donald. :)
I had my first click for about a month on Monday. Didn't have much energy, as I was simultaneously incubating a cold, so didn't hit anything of note.

Been trying to land a swirl ~ swap spike for a couple of days, unsuccessfully. I know it is not such a hard trick, but I am having a hard time.
