Title: Still Seeking Six (Void & kendama friends, Japan 2014)
Post by: The Void on 18 April, 2014, 13:46:57
All shot on my iPad (sorry for occasional exposure errors). Great fun, and brilliant times playing kendama with all these ninjas. Wish I'd had more time to film in Hatsukaichi too.

Hurrah for [user]Void[/user] and friends, such a great feel to this vid - the Fast Hand Drill at 1:00 looked incredible! And, seeing as you've gone all Grindy, nice to see Spinning Top>Bird at 2:10 - I flatter myself as having brought it to the Kendama Berlin guys.  :P  oh yeah, and, the player at 3:33? Great little run there!

Just finished watching the whole thing. Great Watch!

You can really see you had a great time out in Japan and had alot of Kendama time too!

And that airplane>orbit js/Lunar looked really nice, will be having a go at that one!

Thanks guys, glad you enjoyed it.

[user]Kev[/user] brought up the idea of Grind tricks a while ago, and that made me think there must be a bunch of variations of them out there. So I saved a few up in my head to film sometime. Yep, I think I got the idea for the Bird Grind from you, milky.
The player is Junta - got style! (Players are listed in the credits in order of appearance, so you can work out who's who if you don't know who anyone else is.)
And that airplane>orbit js/Lunar looked really nice, will be having a go at that one!
Credit to [user]kendamagal[/user] for that one. She mentioned it the day before, and I so nearly got it loads of times at Club Xiphias that night, that I had to have a crack at filming the next day.

Oops, forgot to comment, so good reason to give this a bump!  Lots and lots of great stuff here, well worth a couple of viewings at least.  Looks like the trip was a lot of fun!

Void, the combo right before ZoomaDanke comes on is super awesome. Nice work!

I've only made it that far (had to pause for a comment), but safe to say this is great! Get to see a lot of good tricks from a lot of friends!

Where are you filming @4:24? It looks like some sort of juggling shop, Akihabara?

Thanks dude. I'd have to rewatch to know which combo you mean....

It's Naranja juggling shop, in (iirc) Itabashi. I ordered my first JKA kendamas from them, way back.

Great edit, I looked at it several times, many unusual tricks, many ideas to go further ! At 4:59, Void you're doing a trick starting like a C-Whip, does it have a name ? I trained on it but most of the time, I finish in a C-Whip on the small cup... Any advice to perform it ?

Hi Fred,
Thank you, I'm glad you liked it.
The trick is "C-Whip Trapeze Lighthouse".
Try for a slightly larger loop with the c-whip. I can't do it consistently, but what really helps is to have a roughed-up base cup, on an old kendama!

Cheers!

Thanks for your answer, Void ! Tomorrow I'll try it again. Today I landed my first Lunar flip, so who knows...
