Gear / Dama Dice
« Last post by bendixso on 10 May, 2018, 14:43:52 »
Hey everyone,

I just made an app for Kendama players. Dama Dice gives you a random trick to try on Easy, Medium, and Hard difficulty settings. It also has a combo mode that challenges you further with a group of three tricks that naturally flow.

You can check it out here:

I'd love to hear your feedback. If you want me to add new tricks or put them in a different difficulty, it's pretty easy to do that. Also, if you have any other ideas in general, I'm listening.

I should have a free version out sometime in the next few months. I had to go with paid this time since it was easier.

Enjoy!

For me, it depends what I'm learning the trick for. If it's just "a new trick", then I'll go about it similarly to you. Although I like to have an occassional 10-minute (which will feel like longer) solid session on "getting the feel", i.e. making sure I have an idea about what the movement/technique for the trick is. If however I'm learning a trick for a competition, or for a grading, then I try to have a daily run-through drill of the list. Or if it's a "video trick", then wait until I have sun/nice location, and then grind 'til it's done. If I'm still not getting anywhere with a trick, then I'll wait until the next meet, and ask someone for advice. Or check a tutorial video.

Tricks / How do you learn/practice new tricks?
« Last post by TechieCrow on 09 May, 2018, 13:12:29 »
I'm wondering how everyone learns and practices new tricks, personally I don't grind it I just casually try every now and then while practicing other ones then when I feel comfortable with others I move on.

For example I really want to learn hurricane and managed to a few rotations but that's practicing it maybe once a day while I'm practicing Around Japan to Kenflip.  Mostly just having fun. :)

@TechieCrow Nice one. Love those priceless reactions.
Welcome to the forum, too! Did you know about http://kendama.co.uk/collab ? All skill levels are welcome, so feel free to join in if you fancy it. Cheers!
Thank you for the welcome :) I will certainly check out that collaboration!

I did a kenflip to base cup instead of to big cup at work.

my housemate flipped because we were messing with that trick for a solid week and he was getting close haha, sadly no footage unless I can get my hands on the cctv ;)
Be quick, most CCTV are only stored for 24 hours.

-Hi, I need access to the CCTV because reasons, it's very important.
Our CCTV is stored for about 1 month so I got time, I'm sure my manager will let me get it :D

Today I done my first Around Japan while playing golf with a friend, always good to take the Kendama everywhere! Haha
