Kuma makes some amazing videos.  It's no wonder they tracked Takeshi down!

That is such a good video! Reading the comments on youtube is heart warming. Spintops are cool, yeah!  ;)

I am a little surprised Takeshi is still doing the boomerang to the side of the head. He told me that once he hit the ear canal and it was very painful!

Something interesting about the first kendama-spintop trick is that after he lands the top on the dama (ball) he needs to wait until the spintop loses all its spin before he does the flip.

Takeshi had sent me a behind the scene photo of the filming:

Very nice.  Takeshi knows how to do it.  He looks awesome and the video is put together quite nicely!!!

That high-flying arm-grind is spectacular!  8)

I think Takeshi should give it a name (catapult?)

I enjoyed this very much.  There's a great talk with Takeshi about his history with skill toys and some hot (really hot!) shots of some of his tricks.  Thanks for posting.
