Fast hand downspike from lighthouse
« on: 04 November, 2013, 08:46:48 »
The idea of this trick come to mi mind yesterday, I don't remember having seen it in any edit and I wonder if it even has a better name.

The trick is as follows: you do a lighthouse -> falling down, but in the middle of the motion you switch your grip from the tama to the ken and perform a Downspike instead.

I think it will look really cool. I keep practicing it.

Lighthouse "-> Fast Hand Stab".

"Stab" is quicker to say, quicker to type, more original/true, and cooler than "Downspike". :-)

Ok, that covers my first question.

The second question is. Is it in any edit? I don't remember seeing it.

I mean, I thought of the trick yesterday, and I was surprised that a trick that is "quite obvious" is not in any edit.

Well, I'll keep practicing and put it in my next edit :)

I spent 5 minutes trying this tonight. I felt like there are 2 slightly differing ways of doing the grip change... which I can't put into words very well. Anyway, I didn't get it, but felt like I could.

The trick, as I visualize it, makes the grip change once the spike is facing downwards.

I guess it may be easier to do a grip change at the beginning, the get the ken when the spike is facing upwards and turn it in the hand, but I think the other one is better looking.

Not sure if we are talking about the same thing.

Yeah, that's exactly what I was thinking - "early" or "late" grabs. It seemed more subtle when I was trying, but... yeah.

This is close to impossible for me atm i come to grab the ken and try to stab but the tama is allready way to far down to catch up with it. Any tips to help with this? If i try to trow the ken up higher , follow with the tama i am not able to keep the tama hole straight to stab.... Frustrating but fun trick!

i love this trick :) the way i do it is i have the lighthouse...kind of lift it as if switching to ken spike, and instead grab the ken and twist my wrist to downspike. its much more difficult to do it falling, fast hand as youve described but definitely doable!!
