Two months without passing 6th Dan practice is very depressing. Today the sunlight was shining through the window, and I passed my first run of February. Yay!

Well done void!

Yesterday I failed my self examination for 2nd Dan, but I made a nice Kendama tower.

I come back to the forum after a few busy weeks, but still reading you daily guys ! This morning, I landed Free Bird Fly Over the Valley, then I found my new Girr Bamboo Regal Kendama Co in the mailbox, and just out of the box I passed 3rd Dan with it ! That's what I call a successfull day  :D

Nice work Fred & Leo. It's a great thing about kendama that everyone can feel good about breaking their next target, at whatever level of play. Kudos!

Well done. I remember thinking the same, and it came much sooner that I thought.

Nice one Maico. I remember getting my first line like that, and emailing my friend to let him know how awesome I was. He he.

Well done Leologic777!

Today I was practicing double swirls, and some continuations. Surprisingly easy, at least for the swirl part, I suck at the exit anyway.

Then I tried to do a mall combo, but I didn't manage to land it with a kendama, then I thought of my good old pill, and here it is!

Ahhhhhh, you were trapping it on the 'side spike' I thought you did it on the handle (body catch position).
In that case...
Today I also landed a trap to flying top

I'm surprised that would make that much of a difference.... but then i haven"t tried the lower version.

Tonight I filmed 15 minutes of out of focus tricks. D'oh!
