Title: What tricks have you done by accident?
Post by: primechicken on 11 October, 2012, 20:32:32
I'm sure it has happened to most of you! What are some of the tricks you have landed accidently, trying to do a different trick?

I've done an earth turn-bird just trying to do a normal earth turn a few times. Always baffles me I'm still able to balance the bird expecting it to be steady on the spike haha.

I really want to know what people with a few years experience have been able to pull off!

Do ridiculous and uncountable jumping sticks count?

I can't think of anything else I've accidentally done, at the moment (although I'm sure there's been quite a few cases of accidental flukes haha) but I'll have to agree with Alex. I've done a few jumping stick miracles and a few universe turns (uncountable earth turns, ascending to about 20ft on a stringless kendama) haha.

During a late night practice I tried the double UFO and nailed it first time. I never tried it again, so I still have 100% consistency on that one :-)

Last night.. Hanging 1-turn Stilt! Of course it wasn't on camera, and of course no-one was watching, but still, it made me grin. :)

A while ago, I was attempting to do a lighthouse flip by making the ken hop and tapping the ridge of the bottom cup...
After a couple of close attempts I did something that almost made me defecate (it was that good).
Tapped the ridge to initiate the flip and in turn made the ken do a 540 flip to stilt!

That's NEVER happening again.

Sorry dude, when I try to play that mp4 back, I get blackness in Quicktime, and it won't open at all in Movist or MPlayer or VLC.
Is it just me?

May be a broken video, it wouldn't work for me either, Void.

Swing to Bird! what a miss of a simple swing in... and it kept perfect balance O_O

Yesterday I was working behind my desk and I took my ken and threw a triple jumping stick while sitting down. I wasn't exactly trying or anything, but it landed perfectly...

Lighthouse to stilts. I was trying a normal falling down, obviously.

I was trying to do a lighthouse and ended up doing tap in

Never done tap in since

after i have seen them sweating all over i wanted to give it a shot,
at my 5th attempt i nailded the trick,
since then i stay very good memories and never tried it again.

Today's was a simple missed aeroplane that ended as a seemingly glued-in-position stilts; took me a good few seconds to comprehend what had just happened.
Title: Re: What tricks have you done by accident?
Post by: The Void on 08 January, 2013, 00:15:30
That was how I first realised that Stilts was possible. Mine was far from glued in though!

Last week I was getting down space walks and right when I caught the tama the ken went up and my string broke! I thought at first "God d*mn it!" then whilst it was flipping a good 7-8 feet up in the air I just held out the tama and it made it in...Life changing moment

Lunar flip to stilt. But it slowly slid off while I was in complete awe to balance it. Haha

Today, when i was doing ufo, after half spin string wrapped around ken, stretched, changed direction of ken's rotation, and by accident i spiked it. It was a bit surprising ;)
Title: Re: What tricks have you done by accident?
Post by: SakuraKendama on 23 January, 2013, 15:51:42
Just like KendAlex I landed a quad UFO randomly even when I was having trouble getting a double UFO. It shocked me so bad. I doubt Ill ever be able to do it again...

@Ian and @Yoda: Those both sound amazing! Bet you both wish you'd been filming!

I'm still getting consistent with all the beginner tricks such as earth turn.

I ended up accidentally doing an earth turn -->Bird --> Spike.

That gave me the confidence in doing more Birds.

Today, while practicing to get the hang of 1-Turn Airplane, I landed 1-Turn Dead Body > In by accident. Now I'm pondering whether to start practicing Dead Body; it's so much fun to do, even when accidentally.
Title: Re: What tricks have you done by accident?
Post by: The Void on 19 January, 2015, 12:26:28
Hah, nice. I've tried a few (deliberate) 1-Turn Dead Bodies, but can't seem to get the feel for them.
The flat ones, though, you should definitely have a few tries at. Soft landings are the key!
Title: Re: What tricks have you done by accident?
Post by: the milky oolong on 19 January, 2015, 12:57:40
Hey Void, try doing 1-Turn Dead Bodies with an inward start with the Ken facing the same way for a pull-up Inward Lunar- they come up really smooth in my experience.

Was trying to do Whirlwind to Big
I caught the ken in the wrong position and spiked it. I was super excited. Same day I landed another trick for first time (not accidental). I landed my first lighthouse insta falling. Yep two new tricks on April fools...

this was yesterday where I live.

Post by: The Void on 02 April, 2015, 16:35:29
Well done,Leo.
I landed a 3-Turn Aero the other day when trying a 2-Turn.

I wanted to land a bat. I did so, only the tama didn't touch the ken. I don't know how it's called, bat wing walker?
Title: Re: What tricks have you done by accident?
Post by: BKA on 06 April, 2015, 12:10:17
Free Bat. Like Free Bird.
Title: Re: What tricks have you done by accident?

I just landed a reverse earth turn to bird. Obviously just going for the reverse earth turn, but it landed perfectly stable.

Post by: kayadama on 11 April, 2015, 10:24:57
I have no idea what any of these tricks are called, however i did do this by accident. (Supposed to be grabbing the ken and doing a swing in type thing at the end)

I did a one turn crazy lighthouse and fall in by accident when trying to do a one turn lighthouse.

Nice!
I used to think Crazy Lighthouses were... too flukey to practice, but I saw people (I've forgotten exactly who) deliberately going for them last time I was in Japan, so I guess, just with any trick, all it takes is practice!

Apparently Cooper Eddy was consistent with them back in 2013, and he released a tutorial today, he calls it Leanhouse
