As requested! :D
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!

Dan Jam details added to http://www.kendama.co.uk/bko2013.html :
Quote
Taking into account the feedback that there are several players who do not like the "constrained tricks" element of our standard competitions, we are introducing a new freestyle division...

Any player who enters will have 60 seconds to freestyle with a competition kendama(s?). FREEstyle. Anything you like. Judges will take into account:

- i) technical skill level
- ii) presentation/style/flow
- iii) originality
- iv) success/failure rate

…each scored out of 10. Highest score wins.

The Dan Jam is only open to players with an official BKA or JKA grading of Pre-Dan or higher.

Dan jam sounds an amazing idea. Quite hard to judge I reckon but it'll definitely add a new fun element to competitions, with routines etc. I'm sure it'll be a right baton twirling fest ;)

I do like the tricklist! I have to practice a few of them, but it looks nice

Half-swirl aeroplane returns, juggle big cup is cool. I love that it has bird fly over the valley.

Now, back to basics and practice trapeze to aeroplane and scoop big cup from the floor.
