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 landed my first moon circle, on camera. And my first aeroplane swap to spike, twice (not on camera)

First time I went serious about landing those two.

Edit; And another trick I just thought of, which may go in my next edit.

Great tricks, [user]shalafi[/user]!

After a disappointing weekend's kendama, today I felt right on top of things again, sharpened up the spike on the green Ozora and spent the evening just stringing long lines of JS and Lighthouse stuff, then mirroring the same in Reverse:

Aero > Jumping Stick > Build the Lighthouse > Lighthouse Somersault > Falling Down > Reverse Build the Lighthouse > Reverse Lighthouse Somersault > Reverse Falling Down > Reverse Jumping Stick.

Really cleaned up my game a lot in this area, especially as I am trying to lengthen my trick lines at the moment. As usual, Knees, and, not to forget, Lungs!

Nice one, shalafi. It's the intake of breath and wide eyed look of surprise that gets me. :)
Milky, that's a nutso line if you got it all in one.
Lungs! Yes, I'm always telling people who are learning to juggle "don't forget to breathe!"

Hey [user]Void[/user], I got it on film in the worst tablet camera quality ever, if you really wanna see it, don't have many other options for filming stuff right now. I'll upload it if you want!

I got a premium gold last weekend and yesterday I managed a corkscrew (or tré) lighthouse flip. Missed the spike though...

Beautiful trick, Hans! So satisfying.

Today I set myself two targets: Fast Hand Lighthouse the World (Small Cup > fhLH > Big Cup > fhLH...) and Fast Hand Aeroplane the World. Still struggling with the Fast Hand Aeros, but such a great model for training.

Nice work guys.
Today I recorded the first trick for Outlink. Coming soon!
Now I'm off to see The Scaramanga Six, yay!

Today I glued the tips of some Kendamas and discovered that the cliff John is great for holding them upside down

I had a nice session at the juggling club tonight. No other clickers were there this evening, so I tried KCC#31 (got better, but not all the way), recorded some record runs and a silly trick. Vids tomorrow. I also had a couple of ideas for Outlink tricks.
