I am sorry things turned out the way they did last year. I feel partly responsible, as I was the one who gave over the organization to new people, who in turn chose their team to work with. Which then went hideously wrong. That being said, after I handed over the organization, I no longer have admin rights to the FB page, so am unable to announce anything there. Currently, there is no team to organize EKO and I am not aware of anyone who would be eager to take it upon themselves. With the start of EKC last year and the direction they seem to be going with it, and the vibe I am getting from people, I don't believe that anyone will step up this year to organize EKO. Not as a standalone event, anyway. There is, of course, an option to make it at the EJC, which has its pros, but I am not sure how many people would want to go. After all, kendama people and jugglers didn't mix too much in previous years and most of our group didn't care about all the cool stuff that is going on at the EJC.

I am out and I am staying out. Prague Kendama battles are no longer a thing either, at least at the moment (I also haven't played nor painted in ages). Although Eric has been talking about reviving them, with him in the lead.

So we'll see what happens.

I think I've done that starting with the backhand. Harder to finish with it....

I was somehow expecting the banking wingwalker bird to continue with palm-up wingwalker banking o_O
Impressive nevertheless, both videos.

A trick from me, and one from @kendamatty too.

Oh, yeah, I forgot about IG, it is a perfect fit fo today's society, short bursts of info, only the latest, and all for likes.

I muted all kendama groups on facebook, the amount of noise was unbearable.

About 9 months ago, I decided I wasn't going to visit any FB link, or look at IG at all (Except when I post to RK). My life has been much better for it.

Yes, sadly Facebook has slowly but surely reduced participation in pretty much any site which includes discussion forums (diabolo.ca and retrocollect are two other casualties which I still check regularly but aren't anything like as popular as they were).
More recently Instagram seems to have had a big effect; far fewer edits, more single tricks and "follow me" attitude.  Majority of edits now seem to be for pros/ companies, so people then "follow" the brand on Instagram.  Fair enough, it's just marketing, people are happy because they get news, discount codes, deals, whatever. 
No criticism, it's just the way things have evolved. I'm still lurking here, if that's any consolation :)
