What's that trick called...

What's that trick called... ...with the tama in the big cup (for arguments sake) and then you spin the whole kendama on the axis of the small cup 360 degrees horizontally on your finger? Been trying to nail that one recently, and describing it as the "finger spinny thing" to people..

ペンシルまわし    penshiru mawashi    Turntable

For the benefit of anyone with "the Japanese book", it's number 93, and the tricks on this page correspond to the ones in there.

Aahhh, that would make sense, thank you. I'd be most interested in seeing a copy of that book sometime, as I haven't got a clue what a fair few of them are (I'm particularly interested in #64, "Beckoning cat")...

Seeing as I've hotlinked their image, I guess it's only polite to point out that you can order it direct from Naranja. ("Japanese Tools" is the section you want.)

Beckoning Cat is hard. :-)

Thanks, I'll look into that.
Incidentally, it hadn't occured to me until now to type in the kanji name into YouTube, and lo and behold I found the top skills of emperor1063 doing the trick flawlessly (as usual)! Here it is, for those intrigued by the cat;

Yeah, won't be landing that one anytime soon.... :)

I have that book, a friend brought it back for me from Japan. I've lent it to another friend though... and he's had it for months. I really should pick it up

hey all, landed this trick recently and was wondering what it was called?

i;ve seen variations done by several people, more so in the franky morales edits



(time=0.16)

its when he pops the ball into the big cup (oozara) and then he throws it all up, flips the kenadama and catch the ball again in the same cup/or the small one.

Hi doakes, welcome to the forum. (Introduce yourself?)

If the ken does a complete 360˚ spin, that trick is called a Whirlwind. Franky does a half-whirlwind at 0.16 in that video. A version of that trick is in next year's BKO advanced tricklist. Check out the video on http://kendama.co.uk/bko2012.html

What is the name of the one where you hold the string and whizz the ken and ball around? I may have heard "hurricane" at some point. Turner Thorne loves them (1:22):
BKO 2011 - 2nd, SRC 2011 - 2nd,  SRC 2012 - 2nd, EJC 2012 (unicorns) - 2nd, SRC 2013 - 2nd, BKO 2013 - 3rd - Always the bridesmaid...

I think I may have also heard Hurricane (not sure where though), but I'm pretty sure K.Cima was calling that "Baton Twirl" in Munich. Makes sense.

I've seen this called Baton Twirl before, Void. So I'd go with that.
