Saturday will start at 1pm with kendama gradings at the park in front of Bůrger. We will have two examiners one from BKA (Mirek) and one from JKA (Lionel). So you could choose if you want to have degree from JKA or BKA.

JKA degree is for free until you want it to be approved in Japan. Than you have to deal with JKA. Unfortunately BKA certificates are not recognized by JKA so if you have BKA degree you will have to start from scratch. You'll have to use JKA approved kendama. Lionel can do exams until 3rd DAN (including). But if this is your first exam you can go to 1st DAN only. There must be one month pause between each DAN degree.

BKA degrees are payed (KYU 75 CZK, PRE-DAN 150 CZK, DAN 300 CZK). You can make degree until 4th DAN (including). You can go from scratch to 4th DAN in one exam but if you already have DAN degree that there must be one month brake since previous examination. You'll have to use BKA approved kendama. More here

At 3pm we will start Moshi park walk. 
All players do moshi-kame trick while walk or run in park circuit. 
Minimal one moshi-kame is required each step.
If player fails moshi-kame is out of game.
Kendama limitations are following: max. big cup diameter 43 mm. base cup 37 mm. Most of regular sized kendamas meets this rule including JKA, BKA, HG, RWB, Trojka and Mussou kendamas.
Who walks farthest wins.
Limit for this competition is 1 hour.

After this competition we'll continue with highlight of this day. Killer game for burger.

Killer game rules:
Each player has two attempts for earth turn. Player with most earth turns starts (both attempts together). 
Starting player must successfully perform his trick twice. If he fails the player by his left hand starts with his turn. 
The rest of the players have one try to perform the trick. If they fail each get one letter and is out of this turn. 
If they succeed they battle starting player until he fails (each player one try).
If starting player fails he gets as many letters as is the number of players competing him. If other player fail he gets only one letter.
If player gets 6 letters (KILLER) is out of the game. Last player in the game wins. 
Kendama limitations are the same as Moshi park walk.

Begginers and advanced:

Players must complete all the tricks, in order, as fast as possible. If you miss a trick, keep trying until you get it before moving on to the next trick.

Players compete in pairs, in a knockout system. A random trick is drawn, and the players attempt it once each. If one player succeeds and the other fails, the successful player gets 1 point. If, after 3 attempts each, no player has scored a point, a new trick is drawn. The first player to 2 points proceeds to the next round.

In the final, the first to 5 points will be the winner.
