Honest, I don't watch a lot of juggling videos, but once again, here's something rather special....

Well done @Unichuck1 !
...I have also been inspired with juggling tricks today. Not coming from a juggling background,...
@kendamatty I wish that helped. If it did, I'd be much better, surely?! :) Good work, and good luck.

Nice @Unichuck1 ,  when I started hitting lunar flips, my kendama motivation really rocketed.
And similar to @The Void , I have also been inspired with juggling tricks today. Not coming from a juggling background, I'm especially happy that they're really starting to come together! So today I hit my first double juggles and also a single juggle x 3 to spike. Next, I'm going to try to integrate taps into juggles, as the tap really throws me off catching and then releasing with any control...

A bit more juggling for you all (and a fine example of "find your own style").  Enjoy!

Oh yeah - that was me! I think I've said here before - I work as a video game journalist. I'm a little well known in the UK video game industry for my enthusiastic sharing of hobbies. Among the many places I write for, I write for a family-targeted games site, so thus my appearance on the show. 'And that show's very lovely host Adam said before we went on air: 'if you're talking about family friendly video games for Christmas, why not mention board games and yo-yo?'. He then forgot to ask me about board games (another obsession of mine) but did bring up yo-yos. I was a bit nervous on air, and when I get nervous I waffle - and so out came a mention of kendama! I'm glad I did, though... in seriousness, I do think in terms of a skill toy for Christmas, Kendama maybe does trump unresponsive yo-yo, just in terms of being more accessible, more affordable, and a bit more distinct as a gift.

As far as I know the show went out on the actual Radio (BBC 5 Live) in a shorter form, and then that podcast is the full cut.

Glad to help expose kendama to the masses!

Listened!
Skip to 31:50 for the interview about yo-yo (and then kendama). Nothing groundbreakingly interesting for a pre-converted kendama nut, but it's great to hear them being talked about to a wider audience.... by none other than this very forum's @spadgy ! Well done Will.

I also enjoyed the interview at 15:45 about "100 video games that never were": "First Person Shooter" made me lol.

@Ninjaboy Glad he's enthusiastic. The usual format is: just turn up, in plenty of time, and sign up on the day. Keep your eyes on this thread for any news. I guess @Maicodama and @Kofi will post any news updates as and when they're confirmed.
