    Had a really consistent sesh with my krom viking, lots of downspikes, balance, trades, and spacewalk stuff. After that I challenged myself to get 1000 earth turns in one sesh (Not in a row of course), and was successful!

    I landed my first stilts last weekend and a few per day since then.
    I still need to work on it but I am pretty stoked at this point.

    I have been playing about 3 weeks now so not really sure about some names, what would this be called



    Pretty much this except the ken only flipped once instead of her two

    I believe it’s still called Base Cup, Flip In, regardless of turns

    I want to brag about the kids I've been working with really fast. Shout out to @Chad Covington from Sol and Krom kendama for giving the kids as much freedom to play as they have.
    I started with them a month and 5 days ago.

    Around 20 have gotten to 10 on moshikame. (1 got over 300)

    Around 20 kids have landed spike.

    So 8 of my 20 to 30 kids have landed lighthouse.

    3 have landed lighthouse flip.

    2 have landed lunar.

    2 have landed bird and nightingale.

    One just landed handle stall today.

    And I just landed handle stall today.

    This kids are progressing so fast it's insane. Even the smaller kids who legit don't have the coordination yet to land like anything are getting into it because of the krom minis and the sol flow. The older kids are all helping out the tiny 6 year olds get their first big cup. Parents are coming in and talking to me, asking me where to buy kendamas from.

    It's amazing to see what kendama can do. All the kids from all the grades are jamming out together, getting hyped on the smallest of tricks.

    A lightbulb lit up in my head there and then, allowing me to learn lunar backflips in a jiffy!
