Some of those go against all kinds of "normal" mind, like flat juggle?! that just made my hand confused relearning a juggle, same goes for the bird no spin lighthouse (bird fast-hand lighthouse?)Love it!
My hands were a bit reluctant to play along too! :) (Although I do "flats" with juggling clubs. Feels a bit different with a ken....)
Have fun with 'em!
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!

@BKA regarding the competition levels beginner, intermediate and advanced. You obviously have guide lines for what level of player should enter each division. But quite a few players will have no grading so do you ever say to any participants that you think they should enter a certain (next division up) division judging by what you've seen them do?

If asked, yes. Or we might give a suggested level. But it is up to the player. If a player is quite nervous, and it's their first competition, then perhaps they might want to go for beginner, even if their skill level suggests they might go higher. That is allowed, but... let your conscience be your guide. And in any case, there is the rule that if you win, you must move up a division, so you can't be a "repeat offender". Also, even if you have no official grading, you can always self-certify to give yourself an idea of your level.

Yes, @KenSan . This one is courtesy of Mr Yano of the J.K.A. We've been trying to give it away for a while now, but someone will definitely win it at the B.K.O. this year!

Definitely gonna be there! I think i can speak for Will as well and say he'll be down. Also my girlfriend will be coming too and entering beginner, as well as taking photos! Looking forward to that Mugen raffle as well!

Everyone undecided, it's worth it just for a trip to our fair city! Plus there'll be kendamas!

Looking forward to seeing everyone again!


I feel that was too many exclamation marks......  :D
