11 Earth Turns in a row.
Did 4th Dan again today. Got to the 1000 moshis, and decided to carry on and see how far I could get. Who wants to guess at my new record?

did a qualifying run of the Czech Kendama Open ladder up to Lighthouse.

@BatDancer: I thought about writing 1001 but that seemed to be obvious :)

I managed my first "fast throw lighthouse" yesterday, but a "pull-up" version, not a suicide.
Small triumphs....  :)

I got lots of new stuff yesterday after being inspired by kendama players at philly fest.
I've even got to the point where my knees get sore after a day of kendama practice!

Bird fly over the valley - I've done it! I've flipping well done it - I'm so happy! It's taken a couple of years practice but worth it! Now I need to do a moon landing!  :)

Excellent! Congratulations!

I need to do a lot more practice before I can land Bird, let alone 'over the valley'.

Well done!

That trick is great, I am still struggling with the bird in small cup.
