so ladies and gentlemen this will be a thread solely for the purpose of boasting who can do the most of what. i'll try and keep on top of it but i will modify this first post whenever a new record is set.

rules: (otherwise this could get silly)
-each record will be set for the repetition of ONE trick. so no made up combos. By one trick i mean you have to hold the ken/tama and perform said trick, then without readjusting complete the same trick again and again and again. (Edit: The "without readjusting" part isn't possible for some tricks, so we now distinguish between "Connected" and "Unconnected" runs.)
-Stay in frame the whole time. No speeding-up of the video.
-Balance tricks should be held still for 3 seconds.
-All standard BKA competition rules apply.
-Use a competition-sized kendama. (No oversizes like Musou, Prime, etc)
-No POV clips please - we need to see the person who is performing the trick.
-Please try to film in good lighting. It's not very easy to judge if there's an error or infringement in a fuzzy video, and you all want us to believe you, right? Thanks!
-It would be nice if you filmed your trick just for the forum, but you don't have to. Old videos and videos filmed for other events or competitions ARE allowed, as long as they are posted here by the person performing the trick.
-Records are for forum members only. (Anyone is welcome to sign up though.) You must post the link yourself.

Moderators: @The Void @donald grant @shalafi @Dimensions

As per Peter's suggestion, we will LOCK tricks once someone has got to 100 (or more) in a row.

So, here we go:

any more ideas or opinions how this can get more silly  :P then please PM me.



For anyone of you who has problems with the numbers above 20: last time it has only been 22 ;-). 23 was a failure!


Thank you for starting this thread. I feel very pleased, yet: Marc W. was my inspiration starting with a quite "private" challenge - as nobody followed so far - with the Earthturn trick.  Marc: go for it! Here comes the next level. I only say: 27 :-)

27 Earth Turns - juggling videos hosted @

I tried to make an Around Tunbridge Wells afterwards (not part of the challenge), to honour Dave, yet, hm... guess where I failed. Exactly: at the first Earthturn...

And one last remark, please could we end a trick with something like "first to make 100", because otherwise I would need to count Voids 1500 Moshis tomorrow... ::)

Adam K

Around the village! I told myself that I wouldn't stop until I got 10, and spent a little more time on this than I care to admit. That was probably the most satisfying sip of orange juice that I will ever have in my life.


Well done guys lets keep this up!!!! lets set records for everything! we could eventually make it into an endurance compatition!!!!

although i might have to turn the videos into links to make them fit onto the first page.............  ah we will cross that bridge when we come to it!


Heres a unique one...

3 balls in one hand with 2 moshikame catches!

8)  8)  8)  ;D

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!


Had a bash, I was going to do this but void beat me to the punch! More next time hopefully! The string adds to the challenge...


Well done matt!!! so the jumping stick record is set at 10 guys!!!!!  your jumping stick is a lot slower than mine is this the new technique you figured out for the consistency comp?


Cheers harry! Yeah its the new technique, less of a flick of the wrist and more just pushing the ball up so the hole is in the right place the whole time.

Kendama Europe

Hi Peter, gongrats to the 27 spins!!
I didn t had my hands on a kendama since my last Video - 22 spins,...

Kendama - easy to learn, hard to master


I'm sorry Peter.

i did hit the 38 times, and i did it with the new Tribute USA Kendama
Tama is 84 gram


Very nice, Alex - now I have a new target for Christmas season... @ Marc W: go for it! So the question is, who catches 50 for the first time?



Thanks, bu tmy happyness was very short term,

Mr. Mahoto have broke my record too, i did not know that JKA people are aloud to play along, HAHHAAAHAHAHHA
he hits 43 times.

now i think we both have a challenge again.

The Void

I'm amused by the different reactions to the miss - you were quite cheerful, he was clearly gutted! :-)
Well done both of you.
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!





I love this challenge :-)

So know we are talking about world records, seriously, anyone has already contacted Guinness World Records for this?
