[user]Cliffdama[/user] Nice stuff man, so much fun getting to grips with Bird variations. Am currently having fun with Swing to Bird > Earthturn Bird > Earthturn to Spike. Was thinking about your thing about the penguin nest, and realised that a penguin nest is, well, a penguin.

[user]Tetsuya Takahashi[/user] Getting consistent with UFO is a real challenge, good work!

Today I was working on consistency with tama tricks, just making ladders of difficulty - Aeroplane, Jumping Stick, UFO, etc, when I realized that in some senses UFO comes too early in the series; changed it to Aeroplane, Jumping Stick, 1-Turn Lighthouse, Lunar, UFO. I find it much easier now with the Sunrise - kind of like the kendama equivalent of one of those telephones with really big buttons for the near-sighted.

Don't know if it has a name but some sort offinger wind.

Tama grip. Swing the ken forward ,stick your finger out (from holding the tama) let the ken wind around the finger once, and swing it into a lighthouse :D

Landed: Lighthouse~Falling Down~Build the Lighthouse~Falling Down for me it is hard to make all the sequence :)
Also landed an UFO, which I believe is the 5th time ever I land that trick.

I've been working on my stilts alot lately, it's been my main goal after getting lunars very consistent.

I just landed my first ever stilts over the valley, and as you can see from my reaction, felt good  ;D
