    ^^ Oops, echotpe has replied to you already. But I'll just leave this here.

    They were asked if they knew eachother's secrets and Nobu said that Yuzuru is really into kendama and he does it backstage at ice shows all the time. Nobu was influenced by Yuzuru and has been doing it also. He just succeeded in the "kensashi" (I think it's what he showed us) technique for the first time in his life under Yuzuru's guidance. He said that Yuzuru is really good at kendama.
    Asked to demonstrate, Yuzuru takes out his own kendama that he bought and after he succeeds, Nobu asks him why he didn't make the "doya-gao" expression on his face like he usually does. ("doya-gao" is his show off face)
    Yuzuru has been doing kendama for about a month and what he just did is a beginner's technique and nothing to be impressed about. He's practicing all sorts of tricks. He even practices it on ice and is practicing equally hard for skating and kendama.
    After Nobu does his trick, he is asked if there is anything in common between kendama and skating and Nobu says that he and Yuzuru were saying that the use of the knees and rhythm are similar.

    The last question was, do they want to be figure skaters in the next life.
    Nobu: Yes, without a doubt.
    Akiko: Yes, but as a male skater so she can be popular with the girls.
    Yuzuru: Yes, but with reluctance. He actually wants to do other sports, but not kendama.
    -------------

    We may soon see him skating with a kendama for his exhibition program.

    How admirable. I hope he's not putting too much responsibility on himself.

    Good guessing. I think you are better at explaining than he is

    What a great way to start in the EX in Beppu!

    The skating lesson looked really adorable, especially with Plushenko showing a little kid how to fall then get back up again.

    Also, the interview about Kendama and the girl asking him to give advice about jumps was really funny! (note to the tiny skaters: don't ask Yuzu to explain jumps to you)

    According to this fan report, during the skating class Yuzuru helped children to put on their skating boots and even ran to change ones cause they didn't fit the child.
    He's truly very kind to children.

    Haha, I'm glad Yuzuru didn't advice the girl something like "imagine yourself crushing into a wall", bless him.

    him + children = always adorable.
    I bet he had a lot of fun, he always seems to enjoy being around kids.
    seriously, I need more videos from that skating class

    Off topic. Looking at the group photo, I just realized that Javier is still in Japan now. But his GF is moving out their house - alone... Wish them well...
