Less Outlink, more Linkup? :-)
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!

Two days ago I finally self-certified the 2nd Dan for the first time after the failed exam three weeks ago. Feels good. I had about 450 moshikame, i.e. the safety margin is there. All praise to @shalafi  for the cool Kendama App that helps me so much to keep track.

Yesterday I...
Had a fun day filming with @AlexOdd  and Mark from Oddballs for a video for Royal. And also witnessed Luke Davies juggle 9 balls on request in the shop too! It was a fun day all round.

Last week I went on a camping holiday in France. Brought two oozora's and my Royal. Managed to get stilt to lighthouse to in and lunar to lighthouse (and the reverse). I was never very keen on these balancing tricks, they seemed impossible. But for some reason they're beginning to grow on me. Maybe I'll put out a 'Royal Abuse' vid of my own once these get more consistent.

Today I land my first lunar flip. Unexpectedly it was little bit easier than first lunar or first stilt.

Nice work, dudes! I've been offline for 4 days or so (funeral, party in the back of beyond). Catching up....

Actually the second one :)  Here is the first:
In the description we can read (in russian) that this is the only kendama player from Kazakhstan.
