CONSISTENCY comp #3
« on: 11 October, 2011, 15:45:49 »
So, as the new Oberleutnant of consistency, I will be posting up the new competition list on Saturday 15th at 14.00 BST. I aim to make this one last a little longer, yet simultaneously be "in sight" of a wider range of players.

Keep your eyes peeled, clickers!

So here we go with Kendama Consistency Comp #3.

This ladder is called "Spinclicks", and as I said above, it will hopefully prove a good challenge to players of all skill levels.
The Rules:
Anyone can enter, worldwide. The first person to post a perfect run of themselves doing the ladder in this thread wins.  It's that simple.  So stay in frame for the whole ladder, no editing, no cuts, no misses, no sneakiness, just a clean run of the ten tricks in order wins!

SPINCLICKS

1. Whirlwind Big Cup
(Pull up, whirlwind[1], catch in big cup)

2. Earth Turn
(Start with a Furiken)

3. Earth Turn x 2
(Start with a Furiken. Then 360˚ ball spin back to the spike, 2 times in a row)

4. Earth Turn x 3
(Start with a Furiken. Then 360˚ ball spin back to the spike, 3 times in a row)

5.  Whirlwind Big Cup
(Pull up, whirlwind, catch in big cup)

6. Moshi Kame x 50
(Minimum speed 120 bpm. Start with a pull up to Big Cup, which counts as catch number 1.)

7. Jumping Stick
(Start with an Aeroplane. Then 360˚ the ken back into the hole.)

8. Jumping Stick x 2
(Start with an Aeroplane. Then 360˚ the ken back into the hole, twice in a row.)

9. Jumping Stick x 3
(Start with an Aeroplane. Then 360˚ the ken back into the hole, three times in a row.)

10. Gunslinger Spike (Pull-up-in)
(Start with the ball hanging, pull it up. Gunsling the ken while the ball is rising, then catch the ball on the spike)

The winner gets:
1) A piece of original kendama artwork by Donald Grant
2 & 3) This 'pendama' and this[edit]two of these[/edit] classic Coca Cola yo-yos

4) The right and honour of setting the next Kendama Consistency Challenge!

Go!!

Ah messed up on the number 9,  this will be a tricky one void! That's me for a few days attempting this, my cam was flashing low battery, went down to get the charger,and knocked coke all over my camera... will have to source one next week if this is still going, which I reckon it may be! Luckily me holiday pay comes in soon :)

Nice, this gives everyone a reason to play 8 hours a day for the next weeks... Well, I was motivated to do a lot of earth turns today, and also landed severall good repetitions of jumping sticks, yet: I never caught a whirlwind. And whenever I try, I become more sure that I never will... Does anyone know where to find a tutorial about whirlwinds? I really would love to understand this trick.

BTW: "Gunslinger spike" is what?
a. Tomeken followed by Ganman, or
b. Pull up - Whirlwind - Spike???

Thanks in advance for any tip how to deal with this tricklist :-)

Neither of those, I think - although (b) is along the same lines.  A Whirlwind means that the ken is thrown and spun in the air.  The Gunslinger spins too, but rotates around (and stays in contact with) your index finger.  Thus, it's pull-up - spin ken around finger - spike.

öhm, now this becomes a discussion about tricky nuances. Are you sure? Is everyone clear about this? ...

Guy is correct: start with your finger under the small cup, and the ball hanging. Pull up, as the ball is rising gunsling the ken 360˚ around your finger, then catch it again, and then catch the ball on the spike. Sorry if that wasn't clear.

I suppose by "players of all skill levels" you mean skill level beyond 3rd Dan :)

Nah, none of the individual tricks are beyond the reach of an intermediate player. It's the repetitions and consistency that are the hard bits.

I believe a triple earth turn and a triple jumping stick are not average players. One definitely, two maybe, but 3 is already too much

I disagree! :-) Yes, triple Haneken does not work all the time. But Haneken does quite often, so here the consistency part starts... I like this challenge this time. I mean, I will not make it, but it is a good reason to train a little bit. BTW: Gunslinger spike will always kill me!

Ah, again I have obviously failed to make myself clear, so I'm sorry.
They are NOT double spin and triple spin ETs and JSs, they are 2 or 3 single spins in a row. I'll change the descriptions to make it clearer.

Triple spin versus three in a row... nice misunderstanding :-) No, I got you right. 360˚ back to the spike / hole, and 3 times in a row is perfectly clear, Sir!

I will send in my video next year, in the summer, maybe.
