I live in Hong Kong where the weather is hot and wet as hell, you get all sweaty, and the floor outdoor is mostly concrete, it hurts my yoyo and my heart too if I drop it on the floor :’(
Right now I have to book some kind of Dance Room and put some Judo mats (which are really heavy) then practice. Obviously I have to pay too so I can’t play that often, right now once a week.
I have seen a lot of Japanese players practice in Judo Kan, but how about US or other country players? Where do you guys practice?
