TEK JIN / SHUTTLECOCK
$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.
