... will board a plane to Japan :)
Now I only have to find out what's going on in Osaka this weekend - or any other place in that area.

I just landed mini-spacewalk to lighthouse.
Heads up. Check if someone had seen it. Yes! Another juggler did!

After days of (pseudo serious) practice I almost landed my first turntable.

Ah, I wish I had Philip at hand to give me tips...

Today I made 7 birds in a row, twice. Nice, but not enough for the KCC #30 http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,2141.msg17316.html#msg17316

...jammed with Thorkild and Mathias in Berlin, was a fun session, Mathias so enthusiastic introducing all the onlookers to kendama. You'd think he'd just discovered the thing. Looking forward to their session tomorrow.

... Spent my day with the players from the Kansai area in Kobe. The sun was shining but it was quite cold. Didn't matter, I learned so many new things. And I managed to do pull-up with a gunslinger, swing in with several rotations, a wrap around the fingers trick, and a swing in where the string is wrapped several times around the sarado. Awesome, these guys are so nice and extremely good players (up to the sixth Dan)

Cool stuff.
Always take every chance to meet up with other players, everyone!

Got my first practice-pass of the month in today.
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!

Congrats Void, its massive amount of moshikame for these high dan grades.

I did my first whirlwind and laced double gunslinger on 2nd try ever. Surprised and stoked.

Just finished up at the Japanese Christmas Market where the KROM guys did a fantastic show. Came 2nd in the battle behind Peter (as always), then came to my own just jamming and sharing tricks with the novice guys. Tomorrow we're going to mooch around Berlin with the Autum Bikes crew, maybe even do some filming, would be great!

Keep your dominant hand toasty warm, everyone.

Sounds good! I'm sensing appearances from Thorkild and Mathias in the K.DE video, yes?
Also speaking of that, can you ask Marc if he got my submission, Milky. Thanks

Anyway, today I... finally got 1-turn LH>  insta LH flip > insta LH flip > LH and managed to repeat it another 3 or 4 times! i guess its a trick that just 'clicks' after you get it the first time. Unfortunately I kept missing the fast hand stabs as I've been getting them more solid recently,. :(

I'm finally getting somewhere with turntables. It has taken me a couple weeks to land them with "some" consistency.

Great work, guys!

I'll ask Marc for you - I'm hoping he's not even started pre-editing yet as all our footage is currently being harboured by our editing guy (the one who should be finishing the Berlin edit). A word of warning to you guys out there - always be sure about who is in charge of your footage  8)
