Title: Kendama Consistency Challenge 15 - Mirror
Post by: Thorny on 24 August, 2012, 23:08:00
I apologise for absence recently, but I've not been able to play a lot of kendama recently.... As I broke a bone in my hand so kendama play with my right hand was made impossible, so you may see which direction this challenge is heading! I will check back here over the weekend to update this post will the challenge release date/time!

Any idea when it will be posted ?

Ash

I've been with my getting the ball rolling on this... sorry!

The prize for this will be a used pink Oozora! It's in reasonably good condition, except for one chip on the bottom cup which happened when it was still relatively new and I've not really played it since then. This sucks a little bit, but it's still a good kendama to receive for winning a little 'for fun' competition, I'm sure if someone gave it to me... I'd still be pleased! It's the kendama I've been using while I've been injured!

I'll edit this post with a photo of it soon.

Competition will be live at 19:00 GMT, Monday 3rd September! So make sure you're around to see what's happening!

I've tried to air this a little late where I live (but not too late...) so then hopefully people from Europe and from The States way-on can enter if they want to.

Take it easy, I'll see you soon!

Evening!

The idea of my ladder is to test your less dominant hands playing ability!

I know this may be out of some player's depths, but it should be good fun!

1. Slip-On-Stick
2. Earth Turn
3. Around The World
4. Jumping Stick
5. Lighthouse - Falling

No cheeky filming with your usual hand and mirroring the video! That's just in bad taste!
If by within a day or two nobody has completed this ladder I'll upload a video of me completing it :)

Thanks!

I reckon that one won't last long. I'll give it a go later, but I bet someone beats me to it...

If for once a ladder is feasible for me, there's a trick to it :(

Tricky. After ~45 minutes of filming, I got it.

Phew, that was close. Glad I didn't stop to add titles or anything like that. Nice one Alex, and cheers for a tough (but not insane) KCC, Thorny.

Yep, fun indeed, thanks!

I'll have a bit of a think about what to put into #16, so keep your eyes peeled in a week or so!
