Short session in the garden: some sun! Landed a couple of Spacewalk~Yamabiko Gaeshi , with a flashback of learning them, with tips from Cima and Tensui, in Poland 6 years ago.

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!

I’m calling this Handaxe, for want of a better name. (Or, indeed, a better trick.)

At the club tonight, I did Reverse-Whirlwind Earth Turn 3 times, and Whirlwind Earth Turn twice in a row three times. Thought I’d try Moshi for the last 15 minutes... lasted 3. :-)

I'm still a noob, so I'm stoked that I landed my first few Birds, and finished to the spike. :)

Nice one, @His Sinfulness . We've all been noobs, so no worries there.
Maybe try Small Bird > Spike next, or adding an Earth Turn. Or Bird Fly Over The Valley if you're feeling adventurous.

I’ve been ill - you probably noticed the lack of posts[1]. Here’s one from last week.
 
Bird > Fast Hand Assisted Reverse Turn In
 1. , but did nothing to rectify the situation. Oh well.

Wow, I haven't been on this forum in quite a while... but!

A friend of mine brought back a Meijin and a TK16 classic from Japan. Combined with moving house and finally having a great indoor space for practice, I busted out some tricks this weekend. I got my first ever jumping stick to lunar (however, with the TK16 classic it is a bit cheating). And I finally managed to get my juggle/ghost to lighthouse trick (however, without the in).

And one trick got me reminiscing about BKO 2015. I remember at the pub after social day, @mreasyguy trying a scoop spike<-lighthouse<-one-flip scoop spike. I have been trying that trick off and on ever since then, and I finally got it. So, this one's for you mreasyguy, even if you don't remember ;-)
Kendama Belgium!

Hey @HansNickmans , nice to see you here again. Congrats on the move, the space, and the tricks!
I haven't touched a kendama in 3 weeks due to illness and lethargy, but I feel like today's the day, either in the garden, or at the club tonight. Adam's trick seems like a good one to ease back in with....
Ciao!

Today I popped into town. En route I briefly watched @Cand1ez working, but then moved on to re-grade @ben_young - no luck today, but getting closer, Ben! - and then had a filming jam with @Dimensions . Clips will emerge...

Out for a walk in the woods today, landed quite a few "around infinity slingers".  Fun trick to do while strolling, don't know why I didn't think of it before :)
