Nice! Only 10 seconds away from 4th Dan standard.

This week I practiced 6th Dan every day. Failed every time, on one or two tricks. But 2-T LH seems to be getting there... except for today when it was just 1/10. *sigh*
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!

Today I attempted a one turn airplane to lighthouse. I got it to stick once! Then I missed the falling in... It felt good though.


Enjoy simple things

Today I didn't play kendama at all. Was too busy prepping, printing, packing and tidying.
I'm away for 3 of the next four weeks on various jaunts, mostly hanging out with kendama cats. It's gonna be good.

In a post frisbee-golf session, I got an Everest>Aeroplane yesterday, first try, with witnesses.
And this morning, in Samuli's garden, I got it first time again. Oddly, doing it faster seems to work for me. ?!
