TEK JIN / SHUTTLECOCK

HK Magazine - - UPFRONT -

$12 @ Jusco Liv­ing Plaza

Not to be mis­taken for bad­minton shut­tle­cocks, this Chi­nese ver­sion of Hacky Sack uses a weighted shuttlecock said to be de­rived from cuju: one of the ear­li­est doc­u­mented forms of soc­cer, which evolved from Chi­nese mil­i­tary train­ing. The weighted sec­tion is usu­ally made from stacks of old news­pa­pers, and you can still see cir­cles of (older) play­ers show­ing off their fancy foot­work in pub­lic parks.

How to Play

There’s only one rule: keep the shuttlecock in the air as long as pos­si­ble with­out us­ing your hands.
