Nice one guys!
Today I landed Rising Aeroplane twice in a row.
is that like a Scoop Spike but in regular tama grip and not underhand?

Don't know if it is a trick or not. had a laugh doing it do..

Its a lighthouse somersault but the first lighthouse is landed on two fingers.

so,, pull up Lighthouse on ringfinger and middlefinger (Tamma in thumb and indexfinger) than trow it like a somersault and land it with the Tamma to in.

Similar to "Duncan's challenge", emagdnim, (search the forum for it), but both easier and harder.
Last night I managed 10/10 Lighthouse Somersaults for the first time ever, and also 4 Moon Circles in a row. Not on camera, though. But that's another one for the "no record set yet in How Many Times...? thread" list.
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!

With a help from a new buddy in Hong Kong I landed my first UFO and learned how to do lunars without the string hook method!!

I still remember my first lunar, something like a year ago. It feels great when you finally land it

... got to grips with Reverse Lighthouse Somersault, came across the idea of doing a Reverse Build the Lighthouse too. Now just to nail that Inside 1-Turn Lighthouse...

Played kendama for the first time in a while night before last. I've been focused on throwing yoyos due to some upcoming contests. It felt really good. I can't wait to throw myself back in to it in a few weeks. I'm pleased to see everyone continuing to progress here and disprove the idea that kendama isn't "as free form or creative as Yoyo".

I was just wondering the other day where you'd gone. Welcome back! :)
When I first discovered a whole load of "beyond the basics" tricks in late 2007, I was blown away. Over the next few years, more avenues seemed to open up, and in the last couple of years or so, it's really amazing to see how seemingly more and more possibilities in kendama are explored. Long may it continue!

Thanks :) I'm certain it will. Trick innovators from other toy disciplines and everyday crossover players who don't know what they're "not" supposed to do will continue the trend.

Nice! And well done. Dark wood, or stained?
You're still in Hong Kong, I guess? Care to tell us a little about the event?
