Kendama Balances/Stacks/Stacking
« on: 04 February, 2012, 23:22:24 »
So it seems people are starting to get into kendama balancing. Here are a few images from Takumi Okada:




That's just a few of the many amazing pics from this page:

Unfortunately Okada-san has passed away, so enjoy these crazy pictures while they are still on the web.

And now over to you - post your pics of your balances here!

Nice Sakura stack. In the second pic, it looks like the 'wasp' Sunrise is touching the ceiling! Also, I wouldn't have the nerve to make a stack that close to where it could fall on a laptop screen. :-)

This is something I haven't tried yet. Maybe I'll have go later......
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!

The "bridge" one is nice, and the tip-to-tip one is pleasing. A little bit of help from the carpet on that one, I imagine. :)

Great photos, Rob, who knows what variations might come from this kind of experimentation? And, nice to see that you've got your priorities straight:
