    Yesterday was a Good Dama Day! Hit Around Denmark a couple times. Hit 3whirlwinds(prob one of hardest tricks I’ve come across). Around London with a little cup flow before it. Hit my first LH flip then to LH back flip(not instas but was still my first back to back snags)
    ..and Juggle up to LH! <—That one well actually ALL of these tricks have been ones that I have been like “nah, nope, that trick is probably out of my repertoire, why am I still trying it..?” To “Holy Sh*t I can’t believe I’m hitting these tricks now!” Kendama is Sooo Fun!!

    I had to stop 28TL because I actually was getting discouraged with Kendama. Getting frustrated trying to record with an old phone that doesn’t have much storage left.. trying to figure out a new trick I hadn’t done before each day, then having/finding the time to grind said trick.. was a little much for me and my anxiety. I Have stuck with the same 1 Kendama this whole month and that has been a new adventure. And fairly difficult as I’ve had some beautiful new kendamas come into my collection recently that haven’t been played yet.

    slapped my first couple of lunars today. shocked honestly because i’ve been playing about a month and a half and i wasn’t planning on trying to learn lunars until much later but just started fucking around and got a couple. still no idea how to get it consistently but definitely psyched

    nice! Lunars are a tough hurdle off the start, they get easier as you play. One of the first serious lessons in subtle pull-up techniques, imo. Keep on it!

    Kept one-upping myself today.
    Did a bunch of spacewalk-1 turn lighty-in
    First moon circle-1 turn lighty-in, I think it was my first.
    First 1.5 moon circle-1 turn lighty-in, for sure a new one for me!
    Quad J sitting down, quint J sitting down, maybe even 6 turn J sitting down? Hard to count the turns, but the possible six turn was pretty much as high and as fast as I could go. Never even got that many turns standing up, just kept flinging the ken until it went in. At least one of those J-stick tricks are true ;)
