Well done @ray - it's funny how different tricks are hard for different people. When I learnt swing in I could only dream of landing one bird let alone seven!

As ever practice and patience are the answer but here's a tip that might help.

Wait for the tama to rise to the highest point where the string is horizontal and parallel to the floor, at this point give your elbow a sharp but small jab directly backwards, this should give the ball enough rotation to float over nicely.

Warning, don't jab too hard or you'll risk losing a tooth!
   Thanks a lot @Kev, when I arrive to my house I'm gonna practice with your tip. Really thanks because it's boring to practice a trick that I don't get but I must learn.

This is amazing progression. Well done. I hope this passion stays with you for years to come :)
   Hi, @shalafi. I'm not sure about this. I think I'm going to play kendama until next EJC. Then I have another project in mind.

Today I thought about playing kendama. But with rain and cold, and tiredness, I decided to have a day off. Sometimes you need a rest. :)
   Come on @The Void! Really? You can play kendama at home! It isn't like clubs. At the moment I only played at home and my roof is 1,87m and I must imagine a line where I only can play kendama because I don't have more space to stretch the string.

   Wow, the videos o Yamahi and The Void are... wow!


   Today I... played kendama since time ago and I'm happy because my brain still remember well. Today I... got 10/10 lighthouses.
Enjoy your life. Circus and love!

Actually, I'm very restricted in where I can play at home, indoors. I just don't have a space big enough. Which is one reason I don't like the winter. Anyway, well done on the 10/10.

Last night I was the only clicker at the club, so I had a go at @Maicodama 's challenge.

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!

   Today I... got 8 of 10 "slid on stick" and 0 of a lot of "swing in". One day I'll get 10 of 10... one day.
Enjoy your life. Circus and love!

   Today I... got "1 turn lighthouse" after a lot of attempts. It's not easy but it's not so hard as "swing in".

   I have a theory why is "swing in" so hard to me. I'm feminist. This trick is like this: The ball (female) try to escape from the ken (male), but this one pull her strong and she is forced to come to him It's in this moment when the ken try to abuse the ball, piercing her hole with his spike. So, I'm gonna speak with the superdan 10 of JKA to abolish this trick from the grades, because it's sexist... and it's difficult to me.
Enjoy your life. Circus and love!

Today I got 10/11 around U.S.A.'s in about 45 minutes! I beat my old record of 4/5 in 1 session, also around 40 minutes. I'm learning :)

Ray, I found that using the pill helped me with swing in. It's a little easier to spike. Good luck!

 :o That strings a bit out of proportion. Maybe it would be better and more usable with a piece of cotton thread instead?

Ha ha. Yes that did occur to me after my original post. Also what to use as  bead? A grain of sand perhaps?

   What do you mean "using the pill"?

Today I spent 15 minutes failing to do Big Cup. .....on this:
   Hahaha, OMG!

   Today I... got 2 "1 turn lighthouses".
   Today I... still desperate with "swing in".

Oh, you don't know what a Pill is? It's a variation of a kendama invented by Terra Kendama. Picture at http://kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,1612.msg23010.html#msg23010
