And that around the naughty bird half rotation trick (12-4) is just the most ridiculous trick ever. Both amazed and fascinated that someone can even land it, let alone consistently enough to get it on video (and expect others to be able to do it too!). A proper :o moment!

Saw this new rule:
Quote
1.   Seed Frame: 6 (the winner of past 3 years of KWC, the winner of the North American, Asian and European Championship)
All get a finalist position

Really quite annoyed I can't go this year as that's a guaranteed final place, more reason to try and win EKO again.
...and why couldn't they have done this last year!

It seems you'll have to win the EKO again :-)

@BKA @Dimensions @The Void

New rules/amentments etc:

– Removable attachments (accessories) can not be removed or replaced within a 3 minute challenge time.
※Use of fixed or implanted removal attachments without making the kendamas shape different are accepted.

I guess they mean things like Luna Tac, slay bands and even bolts in the sarado (which apparently people do now  :o ).

I bet the JKA a laughing their competition sized socks off  ;D
3rd place @ BKO 2016 Adv. Division. :-)

That's not the word I'd use, but yes it is.
