Is that the kendama you used then?

Also looking at your score card you missed the first two Birds? Wow there must have been a moment then when you thought aghh not again!

Congrats Void! Being able to grind out a trick on film is one thing, but landing hard tricks consistently in a high pressure environment is another! Well done! :D

Super congrats man! Well deserved after the years of trying.

You proper sneakied that Japan trip even to the point of replying to Shalafi "Wanna buy a few hundred Royals?" just 10 days ago! (unless he did buy a few hundred?!)

@johndmc Cheers man.
@KenSan "Well, duh, yes" to both your questions. :-P It's signed by my 5 examiners and Umetsu-san, of Yamagata Koubou.
@rhys_goes_peace Thank you very much.
@mreasyguy Thanks. Yeah, it was a sneaky comment, but it is my stock answer to that question, and I didn't actually say "no". :-)
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!

Just wanted to let you know that Janne and me couldn't be happier for you Void! Having been in a grading myself, I don't think I can grasp the suspense and tension you have to overcome to accomplish this. It is a testament to your perseverance and dedication to kendama, and it couldn't be more deserved! Hope you've celebrated accordingly. Enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan!

Next time we meet, coffee's on me!  ;)
Kendama Belgium!

Thank you very much @HansNickmans & Janne. It was pretty hard to stay calm, it's true. I'll do a longer write-up in a while. Celebration has mostly been a mixture of confusion, smiles and illness. Coffee, you say? Sounds great, thanks!
I hope your & Janne's "project" is coming along well too. :)

I know, deflected the question without saying no. Given the result, it looks like it worked :)

Excellent news @The Void, and a nice write up! I'm glad that you weren't rattled after your early misses, it seems like you've finally cracked Kendama!

so...what's next in your kd saga?

Thanks, @kendamatty . Cracked it? Well, one aspect of it, maybe. :) Next? Dunno, bit of cake, perhaps. Still ill since getting back from Japan - haven't touched a kendama since.

Great write up too. Sounds like an amazing trip.
