A bit messy? But you got it, for sure, nice work!
What's next?
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!

iv. Remain balanced on one leg, holding tama in contact with leg, for 3 seconds.

Just watched it again. I said it was messy. But it was a balance on one leg, albeit an active one. Approval stands.

Nice one Donald! That looked a very tricky trick - I think you did very well to remain balanced for so long! Where are we going now??!

It was very tricky, I was trying it out every now and then. I was close to land it a couple of times.

I find just fair that is Donald the one that makes it, specially after his participation on the Knee Stab video :)

Thanks for accepting my shaky balance (believe me that was the best of a couple of dozen tries!!)

So from the one legged knee-stab position, swing the leg, release the tama for a half earth turn to bat! 

(ah yes, the "Saturday night kendama and Knee stabbing" video, hard to believe that was three years ago in Finland.  I'll be back there in a couple of weeks; could be time for a sequel, if Marko's up for it .... :) )

I've been told that the next trick has been filmed, so it should be uploaded soon.

We're approaching the 100 tricks mark

No reason for others to give up. Maybe it will be rejected! Or maybe you can beat them to the upload.

- swing the leg,
- release the tama for a...
- Half Earth Turn to Bat! 
RULES
Trick Rules
- You cannot reply to your own trick.
- You must wait to re-enter until 5 other people have done a combo after you set one.
- You must wait to have your attempt verified by the previous setter before setting the next step.
- Use any competition-sized kendama.
- You should start the new transition from the finish position of the previous trick. i.e. You can just place the kendama into position. You don't have to do the previous move, but you can if you want to. But if so remember to...
- Hold the start and finish positions of the combo still for a couple of seconds please.
Video Rules (To help for a nicer compilation video)
- Make sure you have adequate lighting. Please film in daylight if possible. Clips usually look very poor in artificial light.
- Please film in Landscape, not Portrait, not Square.
Successful entrants get put in the prize draw.
[user]Dimensions[/user], [user]Sonicpearse[/user], [user]the milky oolong[/user], [user]The Void[/user] & [user]donald grant[/user]must sit out round 97.

Not trying to give up, actually glad that someone else is getting into the combo, and this one looks pretty difficult.
