Title: CONSISTENCY VIDEO COMPETITION II !!!!!
Post by: SamB on 01 October, 2011, 13:10:27
FRIDAY 7TH OCTOBER 19:00 BST (ish) !!!!!

Following on from Donald's first consistency challenge I'm in the process of devising a series of tricks to put your kendama skills to the test!

On Friday, at about 7pm I'm going to post up a ladder of tricks.  The first person to post a perfect run of the ladder in this thread wins.  It's that simple.  So no editing, no cuts, no sneakiness, just a clean run of the tricks in order wins! As shown by my attempt in the first contest quality is not much of an issue.

The winner gets......
1) A signed original piece of artwork from the masterpiece book "Knees!  Further Adventures in Kendama" from Donald
2) A chomp
3) A mystery prize from me!
and most importantly...
3) The honour and right to create a new ladder of ten tricks for the next round

Competition is open to anyone, internationally.

Get your cameras ready and watch this space.....

7pm? No daylight shooting 'til the next day[1] for me then. (Fair enough - I guess that's always going to be true for someone in the world.)

3 & 3? That gives away what the mystery prize is then. ;)

OK here it is! Tricky trick list to test your skills.
I've written clarifications underneath because some of it is non-standard.

HALLEY'S COMBO[1]

1. Around the world
    (small cup -> big cup -> base cup -> spike)

2. Orbit 5 x (in same direction)
    (Big (or small) cup -> orbit -> big cup -> orbit -> big cup -> orbit -> big cup -> orbit -> big cup -> orbit -> big cup)
    [String control!]

3. Earth turn
    (Swing in -> earth turn)

4. Around the cosmos
   (Slip-on-stick -> small cup -> spike -> big cup -> spike -> base cup -> spike)
   [Hole control!]

5. Reverse earth turn
    (reverse swing-in -> earth turn opposite direction to before)

6. Reverse orbit 5 x
    (As above but in opposite direction)

7. Reverse around the world
   (Spike -> base cup -> big cup -> small cup)

8. Lighthouse 360!
    (lighthouse -> hold for 3 seconds -> turn yourself 360 on the spot balancing the lighthouse all the way round -> hold for 3 seconds)
    [Balance!]

That's it! First to post a video of the combo in this thread wins these fantastic prizes:

PLUS some awesome artwork from Donald

PLUS the honor to set the next consistency challenge!

If for some reason there is a tie i.e. videos posted within 15mins of each other the one with the coolest 360 will win so bear that in mind!

GO!!!


 1. 
Had a bit of a space theme so I named it after Halley of Halley's Comet fame. I imagine he'd enjoy kendama if he had one in 1700.

Apologies for the delay. I was trying to embed a picture...
Didn't figure it out. Any ideas?

You sir, are evil! Well, that's certainly a challenge.....

aham... okay. Reverse earth turn? Hargh.... :o

Well, probably not today :-)

Yeah sorry it's just I heard some bragging that the flying hedgehog was too easy.........
Its about consistency and I find a good way to get consistent is to do stuff forwards and backwards and practice control.

Thanks for the image tips!

So no spike after the slip-on stick in around the cosmos?
Hah, not that it's a deal breaker, I get to the reverse earth turn and it just slays me every time..
So that's at least 1 competitor out, good luck chaps!!
Title: Re: CONSISTENCY VIDEO COMPETITION II !!!!!
Post by: Peter on 07 October, 2011, 20:10:29
Slip on stick is always including the spike, I would say. I mean, where should it slip else?!?! :-)

Yet, this becomes rather a Consistency Boot Camp, than a Consistency Competition. Reverse swing in, fine, but then? More Knees! Hahahaha... (*mad laughter*)

Ahhh yes, sorry - have seen many people do around the cosmos where they do the stall first (crosspiece stall? I've seen it called a frying pan) before popping up to spike, rather than "slipping on", so to speak. In which case it makes it even harder for me, 'cos I'm crap at slip on stick anyway :) And that Chomp is looking so good, too...

I think I can do most of the tricks alone... but all together, that's something else.

Well, I guess it will improve my consistency anyway,

It took me longer to capture, export, encode & upload this than it did to film it, but...
Halley's Combo - juggling videos hosted @ Juggling.tv (http://juggling.tv/6830#id=http://juggling.tv/nuevo/econfig.php?key=6be628a141b594d7c6f3)
(Still processing as I write Edit: It's ready now.)

You see how the offer of a Chomp can motivate someone?

still compyling? Wasn't able to view it so far, yet, I assume, while you are posting it, my taking a bath brake for getting my aching legs relaxed again has been to long :-)

Hell, man, this was an interesting challenge. Especially I liked this "new" reverse earth turn: exotic, and late in the row - so who is able to learn a new trick fastest. Nice Job Sam! And thank you Void for saving my weekend for training the Czech Trick ladder ;-)

Now I have seen it! Void!!!! It has been said before: you are a machine! But a smart one :-)

Nice Kitchen, anyhow. Ikea?

I am looking forward for the next challenge...

That was phenomenal Void!!! Amazing!!!
Consistent, stylish, a VERY cool 360, a real nice video.
I was going to up the prize haul if this went to tomorrow but you just snuck in[1]. I really thought it'd take all weekend before someone cracked it.

PM Donald and I your details and we can send your well earned prizes.

Congratulations!!!

Thanks to everyone who gave the combo a go. It was a blast thinking this up over the last 2 weeks and I'm now very much looking forward to the next one!

 1. Oh fine you can have a bonus curlywurly for the zebras...

Thanks, Sam. :-) Glad you liked it. I thought I'd give it a crack, but didn't really know if I'd manage it. Took me about 15 minutes of trying, usually failing at the Rev ET, but sometimes on simpler stuff.

Donald has my details already, and you can bring my chomp, curly wurly (which my girlfriend has just claimed, as they are her zebras) and chopsticks to the SRC. The wait will make it all the tastier.[1]

Peter, no, it's a Alno (or something) kitchen, here when we moved in.

So, some people thought the Hedgehog was too easy hey? Well, it turns out this one was maybe a touch easier than I first thought it would be, but still a definite challenge. Luckily for me, I had been practising Around the Cosmos a fair bit recently, that certainly helped.
I shall put a good amount of thought into the next one. Keep yer eyes peeled, froods!
 1. Wait, I don't have to eat the chomp with the chopsticks do I?

I think this one slightly easier than the previous one, but still quite challenging, I tried most of the stuff, but it is hard to get it consistently.

Anyway, congrats to Void.
