Incredible, David!

I uploaded this to KendamaEurope's Facebook page; at the same time Marc W. did the same, giving two equally astounded entries. BAM!

I just give a go to Around the Prefecture and I hit it 10 times in a row.

Also, inspired by SamB Valley the world, I  tried Big Cup > Bird > Spike > Small Cup > Small bird, but I failed miserably at the last step

It turns out that taking 3 weeks off from your Dan practice doesn't magically improve your skills.
Who knew?
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!

I just did 10 Earth Turns in a row!! YES! Never thought I could do it.  Life is good.  Kendama is just like golf, make a few good shots and you keep going.
I have always maintained that the one important phenomenon presented by modern society - the enormous prosperity of Fools.

Today I did 17 pull up whirlwind to big cup in a row, hopefully a new BKA record. http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,209.msg13635.html#msg13635

The other day I finally got around to gluing the tip of my Earth Blue Musou.
Today I finally played it. Not for a competition, or a video. Just for fun.
Got my 2nd ever Stiltwalk in about 3 minutes of trying. #bigger

I tried around the USA, which I have never tried in years and I hit it surprisingly early, about 1 in 10 attempts.

Then I decided to try what I call "Around the European Gunslinger" which is like Around the USA, but with gunslingers instead of earth turns. I may save it for some edit, maybe the forum one if I manage to get out and film in a nice landscape.

In between sorting out a bunch of BKO stuff today, I popped into the garden for 20 minutes play. Inspired by Sakamoto-san, I got String-Pull The World.
