Oh I don't know, it gave you some resources to copy almost exactly in your own video, didn't it? :-\ Anyway, there's more on the DVD than just these bits.

ON BEHALF OF THE SPORT I CAN NOT THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR POSTING THESE! Yes, you are so nice :)

Because of these videos you posted, I just purchased the DVD and I would not have if you hadn't posted them.  I was so impressed, I just want the DVD even though I have access to the videos here for convenience and because the DVD offers the videos in high definition.  Hi-def is important to me--it affects the way I feel when I watch.  It's like having a kendama with a higher quality wood--of course it's worth it.  My sensations are interacting with the video while I watch it just like my sensations are interacting with the kendama when I use it.

Furthermore, I agree wholeheartedly with your posting of these videos for the sport of kendama in general, not to mention your business.  People want to take part in activities that they have some sense of efficacy with.  They have to feel like they're at least making progress in it--approaching a higher standard of mastery.  By posting these videos, you've made these tricks more accessible to anyone who takes part in the sport, especially beginners that may only have a minimal sense of 'mastery' in kendama.  If they never reach the point at which they actually do achieve a sense of mastery, they are likely to quit and never touch a kendama again.  These videos will single-handedly prevent this from happening for floods of participants.  Because of them, players will improve, achieve a higher sense of reward, and consequently engage in the sport more because of this.  It is a noble thing--you've promoted the entire sport of kendama with this one act, you will benefit from it and so will we.  The result is a world of human experience encompassing a higher appreciation for tangible interaction with the energy that manifests our physical reality, as opposed to catering to digital recluse.  Establishing that increasingly enhanced, embodied connection is truly illuminating. There is something special about making an object a part of you, and that's what we all do.     

You will sell more DVDs, more Kendamas, your organization will grow along with all other kendama associations, and exponentially increasing numbers of people will participate in the activity through time.  Why?  Because they can do it.  These videos will facilitate that process hereafter.  Please promote them as much as you possibly can.  They are fuel for engagement with the sport on a mass scale. 

My desire to deliver the above message compelled me to become a member of this forum and submit my first post. I don't mean to say too much, but what you've done here is one of the most noble things in kendama history, if they remain accessible the sport, all of its businesses and assiciations, and its popularity will grow perpetually, and I want you to realize that.  Kendama lovers, please spread the word.

Thank you, BKA.

Thank you so much for posting these!  I finally am able to do the aeroplane!  I had no idea how important it was to bend your knees too, no wonder I couldn't get it to work!

love this, great resource. Even if i could already do most of these i still learned loads watching them. A little spin can keep your ball level? who would have known?!

also, it's nice to hear the click in video. It's one of the main draws I have to kendama, and it's usually lost in videos to background music or just being edited out.

Just a quick celebratory post to remark that, after a quick nose on JTV last night, it would seem that collectively these tutorials have passed the 20000 views mark!

Happy that they've been shared and hope they have been useful to anyone starting out with the kendama.

Cheers, D
