Yes thats what i mean. The second yank isn't actually that hard. But the ken spins so hard after that one so its almost impossible to spike. I missed the spike on 1turn-3turn-2turn :(.

Speaking of wind, is there a kendama trick call windmill?
@jakub.zahumensky
There are at least two called that. Search the forum for "windmill" for one that got the name via yo-yo. Or there is Kazaguruma (translates as "Windmill"), which in...
 
...is (number 9) Gunslinger Base Cup > Gunslinger Base Cup > Gunslinger Spike.
Although we've got a feeling that trick may also have had another name. And (hazy memory?)... maybe "kazaguruma" has also been used for a different trick too?

Cool, thanks :) I think I'll take the @GbH trick at 0:40 as windmill - looks like one for sure. The gunslinger basecup combo is a gunslinger base combo for me :)
Just a little note, however, you have a small typo in your Japanese - it's kazaguruma, not kazagaruma ;)

@jakub.zahumensky GbH's trick is called "propellor" - name comes from the almost identical Devil Stick trick.
Thanks for the correction - corrected.

And, by that logic Around The World is "a cup combo" , etc etc. :)

To me it looks like the yoyo windmill extended indefinitely. Also, looking at the windmill wheel go round and round and round, to me it fits very well. The gunslinger combo, well, not so much. Propeller seems pretty fitting, too, on the other hand. With that said, I think it's time to make a windmill trick :D

Around the world is by all means a cup and spike combo ;) It's just an established combo that has a name of its own, so we call it a "trick", while it, in fact, is a combo. Herewith I rest my case :D

You really think it's a good idea to name a new trick Windmill, when there are already two tricks called that? We don't.
Kendama nomenclature is confusing enough already....

The Kazaguruma trick has been established for some time. In 2011, Cima told us it was considered "one of the hardest tricks" among Japanese players.

BKA case rested. :)

ok, ok, if I think of something that would be fitting the name "windmill", I'll simply name it "flower in the breeze" to avoid any confusion ;)

What is this trick called?

Cheers.

I've recently seen a very fabulous trick in a YouTube video. Does anyone know how it's called and if there are tutorials?

Much thanks!

Thank you a lot. The Eiffel Tower was actually pretty easy for a beginner like me. ^^

Mister Void, how long have you been playing Kendama? That's a sick skill level. ^^
