I just learned that some San Francisco players will use a flight of stairs to gain consistency with tricks.  When you come to a flight of stairs, and you have a kendama in your hand, pick a trick and do that trick for every step of the way.  Don't forget about the top step!  Oh, and one little thing, when you miss it, you go ALL THE WAY BACK DOWN!!!

This allows you to pick short flights of steps for tricks you'd like to get more consistent (I did stilts to spike up my friend's four step porch, took me fifteen minutes to get in his house) and pick easy tricks so you can get them every time (lighthouse up 31 stairs).  Make sure you have some time on your hands, because there's nothing more frustrating than being 90 percent of the way there and... OOPS... all the way back down.

Great way to teach focus and clutch play.
