Today I practiced a few tricks from the BKO Advanced List. Kind of fun :)

I'm hating the kneeling liberty candle already.

Today I practiced the BKO list a bit. I noticed my terrible performance with the weak hand and decided to practice all the basic tricks with it.

I had a vivid memory of when I found around the prefecture to be a difficult trick.

I played with my new green pill! Big fun! And I was searching Easter eggs with the kids - first time for the two year old one, just hilarious.

Hit a couple of Lighthouse trade spikes the other day. Felt like a real kendama player when I went low for the spike! ;D

Also the "birds" have been coming home to roost consistently with at least one flying over the "valley"!  ::)

Nice one @KenSan that trade feels good when u first get it huh! Was trying 1 turn lighthouse trade to spike for some time yesterday, was unsuccessful  :( had learnt some funky light house falling in half jstick thing back to lighthouse though. Still trying to do over the valley myself. Have learnt both birds but cant hop it over yet without some turn on ball. I think that will be my challenge for today :)

Cheers @kaia. Yes apart from that one over the valley I seem to get a little spin on the tama that throws the landing off. The remedy is probably more "knees"! ;D

Unsuccesful with over the valley today. Did get a 1 turn light house trade spike and 1 turn lighthouse to some catch im not really sure the name of, like a downspike but still holding the ball?

Had also learnt lighthouse flip back to lighthouse yesterday, however it was a lot longer to get the clips as i am now using a drift cam a friend lent me rather than phone.

Good work everyone. Keep clicking.

Sorry I've been a bit quiet. Busy, tired, ill, and busy for good measure too.
Anyway, today I recorded 32 tricks for the Pro division of this year's EKO. I wonder which 7 will get cut....

Cheers to Kev & Captain Duncan for the ideas fest.
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!
