Well, the time has come.My ladder is called 'Tricks And Reverse', meaning each trick has a partner trick... but will be performed 'backwards'.

Not quite as long or challenging as Nic's, but I still wanted to test people's skills, endurance and patience!

Tricks:-

1. Gunslinger.
2. Reverse Gunslinger.

3. Swing In - Earth Turn.
4. Reverse Swing In - Reverse Turn.

5. Aeroplane - Jumping Stick.
6. Reverse Aeroplane - Reverse Jumping Stick.

7. Bird Fly Over The Valley.
8. Little Bird Return Across The Valley.

9. Lighthouse - Candlestick.
10. Candlestick - Lighthouse.

I was debating whether or not I wanted to include the last two tricks or not and was going to leave it at Trick 9, but I thought I'm kind of ruining my own theme if I didn't have it's reverse counter-part!

Prize!
A variety pack of kendama related stickers from different American and Canadian companies as well as a small kendama keyring for your phone (or keys)!

I'm sorry it's nothing that great but I don't really have anything else I can just give away I'm afraid...I plan on finding another prize tomorrow, so we can have two winners!
Similarly to Nic, I'll upload a video of myself completing my ladder ASAP.


P.S. I'm sorry for the delay, technology wise one thing went wrong after another... I've just had to do this TWICE because it didn't work the first time. Silly technology.

It is yes, if you want to pull up the ball onto spike or start with the ball on the spike is up to you - I'm just looking for the spin around your finger

I'd say so long as the ken is between your body and the ball, I'll allow it  :)

Interesting list. I like the thinking behind it, but think it will be pretty hard. Yet Alex has done it with 3 misses already? Wow. Well, I'll try to find time to give it a go tomorrow.

Oh, and don't apologise about the prize. This comp shouldn't be about the prize - it's just about challenging yourself to have a go, and to improve yourself.

Cheers Thorny!
If you don't want to BUY MY BOOKS 😉, then why not ask your local library to order them in, and read them for free? That would help too. Cheers!

Not just me then! I just tried it (never tried it before) in the kitchen, and so far my reaction is... "What!?".

Ah well, good to break new ground, etc....  :-\
