... Today I landed lunar to lighthouse falling down on my yellow Oozora, one of my 'newer' dama's.

 Landed it for the first time 2 days ago on old green Oozora which has a really good grip :)
Felt epic!

Nice work! Sounds like you're now ready to go the other way... Lighthouse to Lunar & In.

Oooh I did both those yesterday too and with the green Ozora. A super nice feeling trick.
Also practiced bamboo horses on and off all day and am still yet to land one.

An extended version to try, which I got at lunchtime today :

lunar->lighthouse->falling down->double jumping stick->rotor blade (UFO).

BKA uses the term "Somersault" for a specific meaning[1], while "flip" seems to be used more loosely. I think we all know what you mean though.

... and well done! I hate those Lunar Somersaults - I need a lot more work on them.

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!

Ah very nice Paul! If you're about a week today (sat 12th) come to Milton keynes with me for some kendama! Could even bring skates to mix it up?

Yesterday I started practicing my stilt. After two hours of getting nowhere (always 2 seconds, never 3) I quit. Half an hour ago I picked up my green Oozora en started again. I think I did over 1000 tries.

Then I said to myself:
'Alright, you get 10 more tries!'. This got nowhere again and I gave myself 10 more tries. Again. Got nowhere and did 10 more.
After those 30 attempts, I swore to myself that number 51 would be the number to land the stilt! (Because I didn't want to limit myself to 50, because then I would think 'what if number 51 would be THE number!')

AND YES! Number 51 was THE number. And if that wasn't enough... I spiked it!!

Nice one Marie. I remember getting my first Slip Grip Special and Moon Landings after several hundred tries each. It's a gooooood feeling!

Today I managed to land...

Stilt - 360 - Stilt - 360 - Stilt - Spike.

It appears that this Mugen ball/Oozora ken hybrid is working well!

Muzora or Oozogen? hahaa
