Nice sunny day here in Ramsgate so had some Ken practice in the garden.

Managed a few 1 turn lighthouse and 1 turn aeroplanes of which I got one on film!
Missed the down spike though :-[

Starting to be able to see the landings now with the one turn stuff also the kenflips and falling downs. Hurrah!

Worked on some whirlwind earthturns to but didnt get any. Getting closer though.

The video looks like one in three but was more like one in ten.

Self certified or with an examiner?
Well done in any case!

Today I filmed the trick lists for [something that I don't think has been announced yet].
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!

Managed to get a few more kenflip earth turns today. Also got my first pill in the mail and learnt some interesting balance thing. Been filming clips of all the tricks i have been learning as i go, thought id make a edit at the end of every month and made a start on that today  ;)

Thanks @shalafi but I'm still not sure if its more luck than judgment at the moment.

@kaia I will keep an eye out for your first edit. I liked the Krom quad split video with the whirlwind spike thingy at the beginning. Nice work!

Today I...

unofficially completed Pre-Dan by that I mean I didn't do it with an approved kendama. I did it with my Sweets Red Stained Ken and My Sourmash War Paint Custom Kendama. Still proud of myself though!

Thanks, mate. So it goes. Previous best: trick 4. So to get to #11 ain't too bad. Just a little bit gutting though. It's a trick that I either have a good day or a bad day on, with not a lot of control over which. Hey ho, next time.....

Too bad Void, think a lot of people were rooting for you. The first drink in Surbiton/Surrey is on me.
