..with the Earth Turn horizontal, presumably? Nice!

Today I got 0/10 on the easier of my two 6th-Dan Freestyle tricks (that I'm hoping will be acceptable if I ever meet a 6th Dan examiner) and a record 6/10 on the harder one.
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!

Maybe you are making it a too hard trick... 0/10, impressive.

You are planning on attending the Japanese Open again, right? You know there are 6th Dan examiners there :-)

More "Hoping" than "Planning".... I don't even know when it is yet.

Today I picked my performer, tried, Bird Fly Over The Valley, landed it at the first try, left the performer.

Then I did swing to bird (big cup) and mini moon circle with a normal kendama.

Today I finally got my breakthrough making consistent Lighthouses. I know this trick isn't a difficult one in your guys' arsenal of tricks, but I guess the overwhelming satisfaction and sweet feeling is the same when you finally feel you "know" a trick. It really feels sooo rewarding and boosts the motivation for learning more... :)

When I started playing kd three weeks ago I never thought I would be here now....ahhhh...life is good!

Pleased for you!
Now you can make Lighthouse your Cup Of Tea Trick, and move on to work on... Earth Turns, or Jumping Sticks, or whatever you fancy.

Now you can make Lighthouse your Cup Of Tea Trick...

Today I managed to land one in five lunars while practising this as my 'Proving the Bread' trick - there's no better way to spend that good fifty minutes' proving time. Was really happy to be finally understanding the balance point of the ken when it makes the landing, and being able to control the less-majestic of lunars coming in to land. Thanks guys for your positivity, was a milestone for my level!

Just did Base Cup -> Bird. Next objective: Around the Bird. I've done most of them individually already.

Last night I had quite a good night. After some friendly competition with Matt at the NRC, I decided to continue trying Bird - Small Cup Wing Walker and managed to do it whilst the kettle was boiling aha. Other than that, I had quite a successful night with my new T-8 and landed some rather surprising tricks... including Spacewalk Fast Throw Spike! :)

Today I began to master flipping to Lunar from a landed Aeroplane position. Very satisfying. Now all I have to do is to work out how to get into Lunar by means of the 1-Flip. Did I just say something about being satisfied?

Today I had a good run with "Around the prefecture" both with the Kendama and in real life - in this case it's Hyogo prefecture.
