Today I failed to practice-pass 6th Dan by 1 miss on the last trick.
And again today! Bah.  ???
Three days in a row! Dammit!
*sigh*
Yesterday's long afternoon's playing must have done me good, because today I practice-passed 6th Dan.
Going to have to work on getting rid of the orange here...
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!

Impressive screenshot!

I have to find time to finish the self-examination feature.

Nice work, man. I briefly glimpsed you doing MK yesterday, and you looked pretty solid at it.

I got to 75 mk yesterday. Which I find strange as I never do it. I guess you get used to cupping from general play.

Today I landed a one-turn lunar on a dragon baby kendama. Put up a short edit on the 'Videos' forum.

Nice one guys!
I failed 6 Dan on the last trick again. Still getting that far 5 times in a row is probably a record for me. :)

Looking good, Void, great stuff. I suppose if you keep up this rate you will have a great overhead to account for any shakiness on the real day.

Today I...

...am about to go out filming with Kendama.Berlin in full (at the present date 3-man) force, going to film Kendama Europe Pro Peter Wimmers doing some no doubt mind-boggling stuff. Just wanted to get a pre-emptive Today I in there, not sure how many of these there has been!

Today I found out that I have inspired one of my friends to buy a kendama. And blew a kid's mind with a simple pull up gunslinger. I also successfully self tested myself to 1st dan. Today was a good day

My good 6th-Dan run came to and end. I failed on Jumping Stick today, and 2-T LH too. I blame the weather, and having to practice indoors.
On the plus side, today I confirmed a yo-yo gig. I'll be demoing (just one trick, I think) for a TV show in a couple of weeks.

Today I...

...landed (Gunslinger grip) Inward Swing In > Small Bird > Gunslinger > In, off camera, while waiting for my turn to film. Since then the trick's been seriously camera-shy, to our collective frustration (there was another GoPro sitting around doing nothing all the time). Aiai! At least someone saw it!
