Coo, well done. I missed 1 Bird and 1 2-turn LH today.

Today I did 12 Stabs in a row, enough to get the consistency record, but I find very sad to only beat it by one, so I'll keep trying.

I just did reverse swing to bird. I thought of the trick while practicing reverse swing-in and I landed at the 2nd try!

Hey, a record's a record! Were you filming?

Yes, but in terrible lightning and terrible frame (most catches were out of frame). I actually made 12 twice 11 another time and 10 a couple more. Don't worry, you'll get one video, eventually.

Well done, mate. I may try and get it back....

Today I missed the last 6th Dan trick by 1. But I at least seem to be getting through the four "8-ers" more often.

Solid stuff, guys.

Today I was filming with Kendama.Berlin's main man Till in an abandoned stretch of motorway, landed some nice stuff for our first collaborative edit. Stay tuned, folks. Yeah. Do not adjust your... modems. Boo-yah.

Get it back, then I can try to get it again :-)

Good work on your Dan practice! I'm actually working on a better self cetiffication for KendamApp and I have my Dan practice on hold until that is finished (hopefully this week)

Well done, I love that under the leg catches. We're getting this one up little by little.

I'll try to get it back again, this is good motivation ;)

Today I got a...
Lunar>Somersault>In
...first try while waiting for the kettle. Pleasing, because my Somersaults are pretty awful. Made up for my awful 6th Dan attempt today.

Also posted a BKA membership to Cambodia.

Yep, saw and approved Void's stab record, but it looks like the crown has passed back to Shalafi already :)

On a side note, landed axe somersault to axe for the first time tonight!
