Title: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Cliffdama on 18 April, 2013, 11:09:10
Hi there everybody!

It's time for a new challenge! it will be fun and easy to play for everybody.  Besides the fun i think everybody will be able to learn from this challenge.

THE CHALLENGE:

What's the goal of the game?
The goal is easy, I will put a simple trick combo in a post and all you have to do is film the combo and put it here in the topic.
The first person to post a link to a video of themselves doing the combo can put a new trick combo in a post etc etc.
Now the fun part is, the next combo always need to start with the 2nd(last) trick in the previous combo. (So if the second trick was a bird you can place the tama in bird position if you want)

Example:
 combo 1: small cup -> big bird
The first to post this can make up the next combo in line. (Starting with a big bird)
Combo 2: big bird -> small bird
After that one is posted the next combo can be posted by the player.
Combo 3: small bird -> lighthouse
Etc etc etc...

Moves should be from one still position to another still position (by any method/variation you specify).
e.g. "Big Cup > Around Japan" would not be allowed, because Around Japan has 3 still positions in it (small cup, big cup, spike). But something like "Big Cup > Whirlwind Penguin Spike" would be allowed.

Any prizes?
Yes! Currently a Trojka 3 kendama is availiable to be won for a random participant between steps #151 - #175

Videos will be edited into compilations every 25 tricks.

RULES
Trick Rules
- You should start the new transition from the finish position of the previous trick. i.e. You can just place the kendama into position. You don't have to do the previous move, but you can if you want to. But if so remember to...
- Hold the start and finish positions of the combo still for a couple of seconds please.
- You must wait to have your attempt verified by the previous setter before setting the next step.
- Use any competition-sized kendama.
- You cannot reply to your own trick.
- You must wait to re-enter until 5 other people have done a combo after you set one.
- Your trick set may end on an active ballance (i.e Candle Balance) but you can use an active ballance in a transition of a trick/set
Video Rules (To help for a nicer compilation video)
- Make sure you have adequate lighting (http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,44.msg11118.html#msg11118). Please film in daylight if possible. Clips usually look very poor in artificial light.
- Please film in Landscape, not Portrait, not Square.

Have fun!
Cliff

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 20 April, 2013, 13:39:26
Nice one. Step 3 is interesting: A little awkward to get it smooth, but not too crazy... Who will nail it first?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 20 April, 2013, 14:12:12
I want to suggest a rule that may be obvious: You can not reply to your own trick.

Weak hand base cup > (strong hand) floor bounce little cup

<edit>
Oops just realised I didn't do the challenge right (I had to do big bird> weak hand base)
Could this still be part of the combo???
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BKA on 21 April, 2013, 11:28:18
Ha, nope, you have to do what was set by the previous person, Dimensions.
Quote
Step 5: big bird -> weak hand base cup
...still stands as the current challenge.

Your suggestion could be part of the challenge.... But only if you earn the right to set it. We're sure you can do it though - have another go!
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 21 April, 2013, 15:27:41
I want to suggest another quite obvious rule: Combos can not be repeated.

Post by: Cliffdama on 21 April, 2013, 20:12:45
I want to suggest another quite obvious rule: Combos can not be repeated.

Thats a good one, i'm almost done rewriting the opening post and put that one in. Also put a list of all the combo's so far in it.

Step 1: Big cup-> small bird
Step 2: Small Bird -> Penguin Base Cup
Step 3: penguin base cup -> swing in
Step 4: Swing in-> Big Bird
Step 5: big bird -> weak hand base cup
Step 6: Weak hand base cup -> Lighthouse



Rule#? - always assume strong hand unless stated otherwise?(just for the sake of not writing strong and weak in everything)
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 22 April, 2013, 09:05:03
weak hand base cup -> lighthouse is quite a challenging one :)
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Cliffdama on 22 April, 2013, 13:37:36
Almost had it :p still filming. I had a lighthouse but not for 3seconds :(

edit: got it i think. this is how you want it? It's a bit small filmed it with my iphone sprry my first ever post on youtube haha

http://youtu.be/nlW1reE5ccY (http://youtu.be/nlW1reE5ccY)


step 7: lighthouse -> weak hand spike.

Next step
Weak hand spike > strong hand candle
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BKA on 22 April, 2013, 18:11:13
Rule? Previous setter must verify the Combo was done correctly beore the new Combo is set?
Cliff?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BrandonYoder on 23 April, 2013, 14:02:32
yes, nice job cliff you nailed it.

ALSO, i agree with BKA...should have to be confirmed.
I hate to be "that guy" but i'm a little iffy on Dimensions lighthouse to weak hand spike.
no hard feelings, what you did was well executed, but i have a feeling it wasn't quite what cliff had in mind.

Cliff?

Next step
Weak hand spike > strong hand candle

I like the way you did it... But... I think it's not really the way it should go. It would be more like : lighthouse -> trow up, catch weak hand and spike.
Like i did in step 6 :). Nice try anyway and like the way you cheer ones you catch! ^^

I hope this is more up to your standard

Kendama challenge redo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gT3c7lCXodE#)

New challenge (I have changed my previous idea)
Weak hand spike > (strong hand) under the leg gunslinger
From the transition from the spike to the gunslinger you may just swap the hand
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 23 April, 2013, 21:56:06
This one looks great Dimensions!

I have to give a try to the under the leg gunslinger, never tried it

Much better yeah! Gonna try the next on in line. Also think about making it a 3trick combo after step 10. Making things a little bit complicated and fun.

So soon? Well, it's your call.


It's just an idea, don't know yet. I think 2 trick combo's are fun but with 3 abd later on in tye game even more keeps things challenging ^^. Any ideas are welcome :).
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 24 April, 2013, 12:12:27
I am in favor of letting it as-is, since there are people participating that may not have the skill to perform more complex trick combos (myself included)

That being said, the under the leg gunslinger is harder than it seems.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Cliffdama on 24 April, 2013, 12:20:23
Thats true. And it needs to be fun for everyone. Maybe only tue 10th,20th  step a longer combo. Still working on the concept.

For the gunslinger, i'm practicing it normal befor the under the leg part ^^.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Dimensions on 24 April, 2013, 16:06:45
Just to say, I'm not one of the highest skill levels - if I graded myself I would give myself a 3 kyu
But I have done an under the leg gunslinger before so it is possible!!


I am no in favour of doing a 3 trick combo!
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 24 April, 2013, 17:32:24
I think it's a really good challenge you set, Dimensions. It's a "simple" trick, but with an extra element of complexity that makes it a challenge for players of many levels. I can do it, but it's pretty tricky for me. If it doesn't get done by the end of the weekend, I'll film it. Although I might try and get a few people to join in with this over the BKO weekend.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Cliffdama on 24 April, 2013, 19:50:58
The problem is that i can. Land a gunslinger (not consistent) but under the leg is a major fail for me :p. I keep trying it :)

This might help you with the under the leg gunslinger

Video Challenge: Endless Combo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EB_qJ9Q2C0#)
under the leg gunslinger->throw the ken up and catch stuntplane style(tama does not need to leave the ken so i'm not sure i can call it a stuntplane)

let me know if that needs a picture explanation. lol

EDIT: also, the catch is to be a normal, not under the leg.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BKA on 29 April, 2013, 08:08:33
Hooray, someone's done it! Well done Brandon.

So, previously it was said that it was allowed to start the next combo from the finish position of the previous one. In some cases this could be a slightly grey area, so to clarify... you require that people also execute the under the leg gunslinger in the new combo, yes?

And also for clarification, the ken stays "loaded" throughout this move, and the final move is to go into a pen/sara grip catch, right? And can the kendama stay vertical throughout the transfer, or does there need to be some "swoop" in the catch?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Cliffdama on 29 April, 2013, 09:26:08
I think this is what he wants .

Gunslinger under the leg.
From under the leg position -> trow al up
Move your hand to normal position
Catch the tama/ball and "swoop" it like you do with a stuntplane catch?

So if it is like this the next step in the combo will stary with stuntplane? :)
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BKA on 29 April, 2013, 09:37:58
Ah, yes, that makes sense, thanks Cliff!
(Note, BKA-speak: "Scoop Spike/Turnover"-style catch.)
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 29 April, 2013, 10:41:32
Turover or Grip change is how I knew that trick as well. Nice one!
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BrandonYoder on 29 April, 2013, 14:47:08
Not exactly a scoop maybe, think of it simply as a grip switch.
heres a photo of how i was expecting the catch

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BrandonYoder on 29 April, 2013, 14:49:24
since this catch isn't necessarily a trick(its more of a hand switch like on the ones where its switching from strong and weak hand before doing the actual trick) should i add a trick or is that too much?
i think it would be cool to go from under the leg to grip switch above the leg(tama grip) summersault/1turn stunt plane if that is what its called.

if it seems like a bit much for one trick thats ok. i feel like its getting a little confusing....just a thought.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BKA on 29 April, 2013, 14:54:09
I think either leave it as it is, or specify that they must include the gunslinger too...
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BrandonYoder on 30 April, 2013, 22:14:16
im just gonna keep it simple then to speed things up (i want to keep going. ha)

If I understand correctly I choose the next thing?
If so I say go from that grip -> lighthouse  (back hand tama grip build the lighthouse maybe?)
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)

Can we do a grip change that is not back hand? It makes more sense to continue to lighthouse

yes you can :), only just to give everybody a change wait a few rounds . Remeber it's all about the fun for everybody of every skill level to enter the challenge. If all the pro's would enter we do 80steps a day haha.

Nope, it's a small twist on a pretty standard trick. It's a little harder but totally doable. :)

So the next is. Backhand tama grip -> backhand lighthouse. Or just to a normal lighthouse? :)
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: SamB on 02 May, 2013, 15:06:32
I'm not sure how you do a backhand lighthouse. I think you mean catch the lighthouse like penguin catch style? You can do that if you want a real challenge, but I was thinking flip the ken forwards backhand jumping stick style but catch in a lighthouse (normal I guess) instead of scooping the spike.

11. Lighthouse -> Fast Hand Candle

11. Lighthouse -> Fast Hand Candle

This is great! But how does a fast hand candle go? Is it like. Trowh the lighthouse up and change grip to candle grip and catch on base cup? :)
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 09 May, 2013, 11:07:49
AFAIK for a fast hand you can not throw, you have to go down, only, but it will be good if Void could verify that.

Post by: The Void on 09 May, 2013, 11:09:07

Nah, it's tricky, but it's definitely doable. Grabbing the spike in flight is the awkward bit. And anyway, isn't part of the point of this challenge to introduce new combinations to people?  :)
How does a fast hand candle go? Is it like. Trowh the lighthouse up and change grip to candle grip and catch on base cup? :)
Yes. But you can't let the string go taut. i.e. The ball cannot "fall to the bottom, and be pulled back up again". If you watch #2, (Aeroplane>)Fast Hand Base Cup on [noembed]http://juggling.tv/12739[/noembed], that should give you the impression of what Lighthouse>Fast Hand Candle is.

Or if you have KendamApp, watch Candle To Lighthouse, and imagine that in reverse!
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 09 May, 2013, 11:33:57
Aha:  "fall to the bottom, and be pulled back up again"

I think I was trying something waay harder. Kind of a faster than gravity thing :)

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 09 May, 2013, 12:12:11
Yes, but you can throw it, not just letting it go down, that is easier.... still though, but easier.

Endless Combo #11 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2fgcKI-vL8#ws)
I'm preety shure that the trick was done correctly, but to be shure let's wait for Void's verification. If so next step will be candle ->down stab fast hand stab.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 09 May, 2013, 13:29:29
That's perfect, Yoda! Well done.

So, since you'll have to change the grip for #12, I guess it's "Candle -> Fast Hand Stab"?
Or maybe you are allowed to let the ball drop?...except I just tried that, and it's very tricky to control the hole if so, so I think it's the Fast Hand version... Yoda?

So i start candle and spike down right?

I'm just curious of how the next trick will be? Stabbing heaven start? Or am i confusing stabbing fast hand blabla stuff?

(Where is the iphone update of the app?) haha
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BKA on 09 May, 2013, 19:22:39
The next combo always need to start with the 2nd(last) trick in the previous combo.
So yes, it would start with Stab(bing Heaven)...
Quote
(So if the second trick was a bird you can place the tama in bird position if you want)
...or just the finish position if you're feeling kind to the next players. ;)

Since Cliff never replied to Void's suggestion of a gap of 5 other people before you can go again, we're going to step in and say that that is now a rule.
So you have to wait until number 14 now, Brandon.

The combo already has a name: "Endless Combo".

And that's presumably "Stab -> Fast Hand Lighthouse". There are possibly different ways of interpreting that, depending on how you execute the move....

Post by: shalafi on 17 May, 2013, 08:45:38
It seems to me that after the stab they switch to ball grip on the hand. Is that correct?

My initial understanding of the trick is that you had to throw ken and tama, then grab tama, then lighthouse, but in the video I can't see the ball leaving their hand.

I asked Rod the same question and he said that he slightly throws it, but its such a small motion it would be hard to tell/wouldnt matter a huge deal (imo). I personally think its a little easier to give it a slight throw. It is a hard move though, getting it to stick once its on the tama is difficult

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: br4d24 on 21 May, 2013, 21:24:24
Okay how about i switch the trick to something easier? How about a horizontal earth turn in pen grip? Almost like a ufo but with the tama instead of ken. I can post video if anyone is confused, really not that hard of a trick though.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 21 May, 2013, 21:34:01
That I can do :) not sure if I'll have time tomorrow, but on Thursday I should be able to record it.

I said it too quickly, the horizontal earth turn on Pen grip is quite more difficult than with normal grip, but definitely doable.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)

You set it, and you said it looks good, so it's good. Doesn't matter what anyone else thinks.

Over to you, SeanW: What's move #14?
(Fast Hand) Lighthouse->??????

Hmmm.
(fast hand) lighthouse -> flip into lunar.

So pretty much throw it into a lighthouse flip but go a bit further and catch lunar.
I'll try and re-record it later just so it's not fuzzy.

And I'm gonna take all the clips and throw them together so it's one shot and see how the combo looks so far! If that's ok.  ;D

I think Cliff is intending to do that - it is his thread, after all. But anyway, perhaps a round number of 20 combos would be a good place to do a compilation.

Meanwhile
#14 Lighthouse>Somersault to Lunar
...is a tricky one. Good luck everyone!

Ok. I'll see what cliff says.
And lighthouse > somersault to lunar is tricky but doable. I've landed a couple before.
Hard part is not the landing but keeping it balanced. Good luck to those who try!

Ok cool. I will film my set again later so you don't have a fuzzy shot.

And lemme guess the extra challenge is to see if someone can do the first 20 steps.

Damn dunno if i can pull this new transition off all that well with where my skill is at, thats a pretty advanced trick!

Just learnt aeroplane to lunar and lighthouse to lunar but adding that extra flip in there will be a huge challenge i gotta overcome!
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: mreasyguy on 23 May, 2013, 21:55:01
well i didn't know if i had to straight lighthouse or still do the fast hand so i went with the fast hand.

I dont like the use of thumbs on lunars so the end is just to show no thumbs  ;D

Post by: mreasyguy on 23 May, 2013, 23:49:25
Thanks guys, It was actually part of a combo I have been working on myself so I kinda knew I had it in me.

Hrmmmm next trick...

I think lunar>one turn airplane catch.

will make for more variations after it then I feel.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: br4d24 on 24 May, 2013, 00:21:43
So like, summersault spike? or lunar to an actual 1turn aeroplane, with the swing and stuff?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: mreasyguy on 24 May, 2013, 00:32:04
Yeah, lunar flip spike, I didn't know how to really word it. I thought if i wrote lunar flip spike it might get muddled up a bit.

So basically a 1 turn lunar but spike it rather than catching lunar again.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: br4d24 on 24 May, 2013, 00:46:55
I think it would be called lunar summersault spike. Void or BKA where are yah on this one?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: SeanW on 24 May, 2013, 02:16:04
It would be lunar > summersault to spike.
Title: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: br4d24 on 24 May, 2013, 03:16:49
So close to getting it today! Over and over i came so close!

Atleast i got my lunars and aeroplane to lunars down to about 5/10 :P
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BKA on 24 May, 2013, 09:51:22
Well done Adam.

"... to Spike" would suggest that you end up holding the ken, which is not the case here, so...

#15 Lunar > Somersault to Aeroplane

(Use the formula: Manoeuvre - Ending trick, so in this case Somersault is the Manoeuvre, and Aeroplane is the Ending trick/catch. You could argue for "Lunar > 1-Turn Aeroplane" as Adam originally said, which sounded fine to us, but it seemed to confuse some people, so... Yeah. If you're ever in doubt about describing a trick to someone, always consider "If I told them only the name of the trick and nothing else, would they do exactly the trick I meant?". )

"> Somersault to In" would work too. But I think everyone understands that, so off you go!

Is this what you were hoping for with number 16?
http://youtu.be/0ObsQ5x4hKU (http://youtu.be/0ObsQ5x4hKU)

If yes, then I would like 17 to do a stilts to trade spike. Please correct me if that doesn't make sense or isn't doable...
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: SamB on 24 May, 2013, 15:00:01
[user]rawr[/user] Looks good to me (if mine was OK?)!  "Stilts to trade spike" is two tricks really but just "stilts" would be fine. Like just pop it out to stilts no flipping or anything?
This combo has momentum now!
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BKA on 24 May, 2013, 15:14:09
A) mreasyguy hasn't verified Sam's trick yet....

B) If it's verified, and we continue to rawr setting part 17, then yes, as Sam says, it should just be one transition, so either
(the end position of) 1-Turn Aeroplane > Stilts or
(the end position of) 1-Turn Aeroplane > 1-Turn Stilts / aka Somersault to Stilts
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: rawr on 24 May, 2013, 17:06:46
I think that means that I will confirm number 17 as:

Aeroplane > 1-Turn Stilts / aka Somersault to Stilts

I will give it a shot tonight I think, This is one of the tricks i've landed on accident doing jumping sticks but never seriously attempted as I have only just got into stilts.

One can only try!

I'm no stilt pro but what helps for my is not let the ken slide into the stilt but make sure it falls into stilts. This way you onlyhave to focus on the balance and not "to" much on the landing :)
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BKA on 24 May, 2013, 23:45:26
WHOAH!!

Sorry, mreasyguy, but your entry does not count, as you have to wait until 5 other people have gone after you before you can re-enter. (See rules in the first post.)

#17 is still LIVE, everyone!

Dayum :-[

At least it made me learn a new trick out of it  :)

Have fun with that one guys!

@br4d24
The way i approach stilts maybe a little different but what i find helps me is near landing i have the hole slightly turned away from me and as the cup hits the hole i kind of roll it back a bit so im kind of absorbing the backwards momentum if that makes any sense at all

Tomahawk (ura Haneken),  Reverse-spin jumping stick throw from the shoulder.

The tip in the book said that you don't want to catch it to height, Believe me it is a great tip.
I 'trow' it at shoulder height and catch it at elbow height.

There was no fault mate.
I just started to play Kendama 3 or 4 weeks ago, so i don't know that many names or tricks yet.
So I used the Book to find and name a trick. Wanted to post a trick that I did not see so often.

But a good idea to read the books. I am amazed about some of the tricks in it, hope to do them some day.

Cheers mate!

Well, I do have the books for a long while and I've read them a couple of times. I also tell people that are a great way to check new tricks... although I recommend the app more :)
With all that in place, not knowing a trick that is in the books is quite shaming :-/

Anyway, I tried the trick out of curiosity and it does not look too difficult, I almost landed it a couple of times within 5 minutes, so I hope someone will take it soon and keep the combo going.

Post by: The Void on 19 June, 2013, 19:24:55
Ooh, that was quick, thanks.

Right then, #23 is (Tomahawk ->) Behind The Side

...which means: throw the whole kendama up, slightly to your opposite side. The ken should stay in the hole. While it is flying, reach around so that the hand that threw goes behind your back and reaches between your other arm and your body. Catch the ball in this position, with the ken still loaded.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Dimensions on 19 June, 2013, 21:02:10
Done it!
Kendama challenge again (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uOgD5nhzmCs#)
Assuming this is ok with The Void
Behind the side > behind the back space walk (release the ken from the tama swing it one way then the other, release the kendama behind your back, then do a space walk and SPIKE!)

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 19 June, 2013, 22:09:17
I thought this one wouldn't last long. :)
That's okay.

But to be clear, you mean throw from behind the back, but finish the move in front, yes?

And, if you're saying that you finish your move with a Spike (i.e. holding the ken), then you are describing a Moon Circle. So, do you mean Moon Circle or Spacewalk (which finishes with an Aeroplane, holding the ball)?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Dimensions on 20 June, 2013, 18:02:44
I mean the initial throw is from behind the back and the catch is from the front
And you finish in a swing in so yes a moon circle is the correct name

To re word my challenge
Behind the side > behind the back moon circle

I also recall cliff saying that he will do somthing special when we get to step 20??
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 20 June, 2013, 19:15:25
tricky, because it also starts with a tama grip instead of normal ken grip.

Nope. You set an interesting combo. It's challenging, but it certainly is doable. One of the good things about this thread is that it can encourage players to try tricks they have never tried, or even thought of, before. Leave it as it is!

I thought you would say that - it is just best to ask though
I also agree when you said that it makes people learn new tricks - I can now land a tomahawk thanks to this thread and as you also know I can land behind the side

Thanks cliff
And everyone give this combo a try: behind the side > behind the back throw (catch in front) moon circle

Good luck

So what next?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 28 June, 2013, 17:17:30
Ah, I'm not sure... I was interpreting what Dimensions wrote to mean that you held on to the ball, and swung the ken, finally releasing the ball (and not the ken as you do) into a Moon Circle. (Strictly speaking, since you'd be releasing the ball, it wouldn't be a true Moon Circle, but hey, this thread's all about variations, right?)
I don't know though, maybe I'm reading it wrong, and that's what he wanted.

....[user]Dimensions[/user]?

I had a go at "my way" earlier today and in about 40 goes got really close about 8 times. :/
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 28 June, 2013, 17:18:25
Ha, timing! You're all good, Nic, set us a new challenge then!

So, #25 (finish position of) Moon Circle -> ??
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: KendaMushroom on 28 June, 2013, 17:24:53
yeah this was a weird one, thats why I dont seem very convinced at the end haha.

hmmm so. basically (normal ken grip with ball on the spike) start to -> double flip "earthturn" to small bird.

works?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 28 June, 2013, 17:27:02
That would be 3 tricks combined, and it should only be 2, according to the original rules, and how it's gone so far. (i.e. Each player adds one new trick each round.)
So, Moon Circle > Double Earth Turn ? [EDIT: Ignore that, see what rawr wrote below!]

I read the trick as a double earth turn that lands as a small bird instead of on the spike. That would indeed be just one trick then.

so if i take part in need to do a mooncirle from back to front and a double earthturn to small bird?
Or do i just do a double earth turn to little cup bird?
Title: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BKA on 28 June, 2013, 19:21:11
You don't have to do the Mooncircle. Start from the finish position of a Mooncircle, and just do the double earthturned small bird. In other words, start from where Nic finished.

From Spike double earthspin to little cup bird (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7tTrYD_TAOQ#ws)

and as next challenge i like to see a double backside earthspin over the valley, so the hole turns toward your body.

good luck

Post by: Dimensions on 30 June, 2013, 09:08:35
First - [user]kendalex[/user] needs to verify [user]mreasyguy[/user]'s trick
Second - do you mean a double gunslinger around the big cup or double gunslinger > big cup
(My second interpretation won't be allowed as that would be a 3 trick combo)

[user]dimesions[/user] [user]kendamushroom[/user] [user]kendalex[/user] [user]mreasyguy[/user] and [user]jafish41[/user] are all locked out for now
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BKA on 30 June, 2013, 12:30:53
To keep things moving along, BKA will step in and say

KendAlex's trick (#25): verified!
mreasyguy's trick (#26): verified!

And for clarity, we assume jafish means either
- Double Gunslinger (ball stays on the spike) ... and then... --> Big Cup 
[which would not be allowed as that is two moves]
or
- #28 Double Gunslinger (ball comes off the spike as the gunslinger is started) --> catch the gunslinger/ken while the ball is flying, and then land the ball in the Big Cup.
[Let's assume this is the case until jafish confirms]

[user]mreasyguy[/user], please verify jafish's Whirlwind Spike!

Post by: jafish41 on 30 June, 2013, 21:40:38
@BKA Yes your second interpretation was correct. From the Spike you do a doublegunslinger and from the gunslinger you land big cup so you do not end the double gunslinger in a spike

Post by: The Void on 01 July, 2013, 17:22:21
I've not done a lot of double gunslingers, but I gave this a go, and I managed to get it after 5 minutes. Then I realised I could come back in. Shame I wasn't videoing, d'oh! Oh well, maybe tomorrow, if it's sunny out...

this turns is turning away from your body like frontspins, i asked to do a double backspins, like roll it up agains the spike so the ball is making backspins
sorry, Mreasyguy
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BKA on 03 July, 2013, 16:27:49
Huh? But you said
and as next challenge i like to see a double backside earthspin over the valley, so the hole turns toward your body.
The hole does turn towards his body. If you wanted the ball to turn in the other direction, that would be in the same direction as a standard Earth Turn. So then why did you say "double backside earthspin" when you could have said "double earthspin"?

*confused face*
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: mreasyguy on 03 July, 2013, 18:04:18
Im confused too.

I eathturned by pulling back so the hole came towards me not away from me hence the backwards movement of the ken rather than pushing forward.

I can slow it down for you alex if you would like to double check?

*Edit*

Slowed it down...

Post by: KendaMushroom on 04 July, 2013, 10:40:14
thats also what i understood, and what i did at home for fun and what mreasyguy did....no trouble here, moving on! haha
what is confusing is that "backspin" term...technically and earthturn is a "backflip"....so the reverse of it would be "frontflip"...so if anything this trick should be called, double FRONTspins over the valley. :)
Title: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BKA on 04 July, 2013, 11:22:54
Okay, so it seems Alex was using skating terms that were very unintuitive to kendama players. So, from now on, let's all just use the words "reverse" or (if necessary) "normal" to describe a kendama trick's direction, yeah?
So... What Alex wanted was "Double (normal) Earth Turn to Bird".

So, are you up for re-filming that, mreasyguy? (Better lighting would be nice, if you can manage that....)

Apologies to Alex for us butting in to verify someone else's trick. Our bad!
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: mreasyguy on 04 July, 2013, 22:31:29
Ok I have filmed it the other way. It did go a little out of shot but can still see its a double.

I'm not going to get penalized because the bird was perched now am I?  ;)

Okay, Jake's obviously busy with other stuff right now, so assuming #28 is okay...

#29 Big Cup > Fast Hand Half Tornado Opposite Lunar

The last one I set was quite easy, so here's a stinker!  ;D

So... Throw the ken and ball up, with a sideways twist. The base cup stays facing you throughout the whole trick. Catch the ball, and land an opposite lunar.

Please film...
a) ...in Landscape orientation
b) ...in good lighting (preferably daylight)
c) ...side-on, from the "palm side" of your hand, not the "back of hand" side. (I want to see your fingers not touching the ken! ;) )

I'm sorry Rob, but I don't think I can accept that.  :(

Not because I don't think you did it[1], but because you can't really see the beginning of the trick well enough. (Remember, this will be edited into a compilation at some point). You said "sorry for trimming it too much"... do you still have the untrimmed clip? If you can show me a bit more, then I'll take it.

But if you have to re-film... pleeeease film outdoors if you can... the lighting is sooooooo much better in daylight.

PS Nothing wrong with the t-shirt!
 1. It would have been nice to see you hold the balance for a little longer though....

Oh, that's a shame. Yeah, I've found that the 'trim' function on my iPad is quite "approximate", and sometimes I have to re-do it once or twice to get the right trim.

Still, on the plus side... you won't make that mistake again, and, since you have an iPod, there's no excuse for not filming outside.  :P So, yeah... go and do it again, but better! (If you don't get it, I'm sure I'll be able to get someone at EJC to do it.)

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 22 July, 2013, 15:07:12
Hmmm... interesting.
In this one, you use a slightly different technique to the one you used in your first vid: Namely not letting go until the ken was above the ball.
If I was feeling really mean, I could refuse this one too, because
a) my description said "Throw the ken and ball up...", and that's technically speaking a "release" rather than a "throw"
b) the ken was at a bit of an angle to your body on the catch.

However, I'm not feeling mean, and all that would just be splitting hairs anyway. Besides which, you've now twice clearly demonstrated you can do the move (each way). And the latter one could still be interpreted to conform to "Fast Hand Half Tornado Opposite Lunar" (albeit with the half tornado happening in the hand). So, well done.. that's good!

What's next?
#30 Opposite Lunar > ????
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 22 July, 2013, 15:10:40
Hmm... wait, I just noticed that you lifted up to the outside of your body, and not to the inside, as my illustration showed.

Oh well, tell you what... you've still passed, and the Combo continues with your new trick. But try and film it again from the other side as well, please? (Then we can show 2 versions of the trick in the compilation)

I also think that after a certain amount of time (let's say 3 weeks) and the combo hasn't been completed we should let everyone join in (that's including the last 4, and not the challenge setter) and maybe after 5 weeks the combo should be subject to change
Just a few ideas, but this is possible

Maybe we should give Alex or Jeffrey a buzz

Great, now as we wait for Ash to set move #34, a reminder that
[user]Dimensions[/user], [user]Yoda[/user], [user]Yan Kud[/user], [user]BrandonYoder[/user] and [user]Ash[/user] have to sit this one out.

In the meantime, if you get a chance, refilm it without all the distractions in the shot.
(Not required, but remember, this is going into a compilation video, so people wont know which one of you to watch.)
We can probably do something cunning in the editing. :)

Wassup!

Apologies about the clip as we were racing against mreasyguy for the upload!

I will get it again today and re-upload the clip to this page.

In the mean time, next trick is Double Somersault good luck :).

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: mreasyguy on 03 September, 2013, 21:03:02
Cool! if that's the case then the next step is...

Tap one turn somersault.

So pop the ken straight, tap the base cup with the Tama to make the ken do a somersault landing in lighthouse again.

(so not a trade spike @Dimensions :P)

quick question.

Kendama size at the Endles combo challenge.
Is it oke to do a trick with an other size kendama than the standart size kendama?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BKA on 04 September, 2013, 00:05:51
Hmm, suprisingly we have not specified this so far. But since all the tricks so far have been with competition sized kendamas, we think it should probably stay that way. We've added it as a rule in the first post. We also added...
Quote
Guidelines (To help for a nicer compilation video)
- Hold the start and finish positions of the combo still for a couple of seconds please.
- Please film in daylight if possible. Clips usually look very poor in artificial light.
- Please film in Landscape, not Portrait.

I'm not sure if Adam will allow either of them. When I did the trick, I thought I was launching straight, but watching the video back.... not so much.

Post by: mreasyguy on 04 September, 2013, 18:50:02
Sorry for the late reply, Just got home from work, long day.

I'll have to go with void's trick here as his was a straighter pop before the tap, where as Dimension's looks like it starts the rotation before the tap (if all that makes sense)

Just means you get to attempt whatever void sets!
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 04 September, 2013, 19:33:47
While you were typing that, I was filming this....
Endless Combo #35 - Straighter! - juggling videos hosted @ Juggling.tv (http://juggling.tv/13392#id=http://juggling.tv/nuevo/econfig.php?key=1c7702ef74788571bf68)

Actually this one looks about the same as my last one... About 30 degree tilt on the pop.... But if you look at the top of the wall and the floor, you'll see that actually I was filming at a slight angle, so this one is "truer". I can probably un-tilt it in the editing anyway.

So, thanks, Adam. Right, I'll have a little think about #36....
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Dimensions on 04 September, 2013, 20:09:12
I had only just got the hang of lighthouse flips anyway so... Well done Void!
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 04 September, 2013, 20:14:33
Okay folks, inspired by [user]SamB[/user]'s excellent Best Trick at EKO, I give you...

#36 Lighthouse > Clap Tornado

0. Hold a Lighthouse still for 2 seconds (for the benefit of the editor)
1. Throw the tama and ken up with a spin, so that the ken spins (minimum 360 degrees) on its long axis (staying vertical).
2. While the kendama is in the air, clap your hands.
3. Catch the tama....
4. .... and the ken back into a Lighthouse.
5. Hold the Lighthouse still for 2 seconds (for the benefit of the editor).

It's okay if the tama and ken separate in the air, as long as the ken has rotated and is caught back in a clean Lighthouse again.

As well as the standard rules (see first post in thread), I'm also going to specify that for this trick you must:
1. Stand facing the camera.
2. Film in daylight, outdoors. (I'm bored of seeing you all in fuzzy rooms. ;) Fuzzy= fail.)

[user]The Void[/user], [user]Yan Kud[/user], [user]BrandonYoder[/user], [user]Ash[/user] and [user]mreasyguy[/user] must sit out this round.

Good luck to everyone else!

This morning I tried to film the tap lighthouse somersault outside this morning - and the picture was like a silhouette and before I have wanted to film in the evening - so will if it is evening/ morning/ raining etc will there be exceptions?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 04 September, 2013, 20:58:19
Point your camera away from the sun, not towards it, and you won't get silhouette. If your camera has exposure options, that can help too.

Next step is
37. Lighthouse -> Drinks Break

It just a fun and simple trick
0: hold lighthouse still for 2 seconds
1: bend down and pick up a drink (it could be anything - preferably something coloured)
2: have a big sip - still while balancing the lighthouse
3: bend back down and put the drink back on the floor
4: hold lighthouse still for 2 seconds

AND! Please film outside and facing the camera

Good luck

Just a question for the benefit of everyone
Is this on the weak hand?
I interpret this as:
0: lighthouse
1: place other finger on spike
2: turn it over
3: balance on weak hand

Am I right?

Sadly, it seems like not that many people are interested in playing just for the fun of it. There are a lot of video comps around at the moment, all competing for people's time and attention.

I thought about offering a prize to a random one of the players each 25 tricks, to encourage participation. But then I thought that if people don't want to play for the fun of joining in the community once in a while, then I can't be bothered to try to bribe them into playing.

Bah, humbug, sulk.  :(

I gave Sara grip slip grip special > swirl areoplane a couple of try's.
Can't seem to land it. Grip slip is a real hard trick to land and landing the swirl after is hard.
Will continu to try tho.

Good luck everyone. Please let someone (or me) land  it fast.

I've also tried but god, swirls are the bane of me. Half is fine, anything more my eyes get lost haha!
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Dimensions on 24 October, 2013, 18:05:30
[user]mreasyguy[/user][1]
Start off, like a half swirl (try and be as centrerd as possible), give it a firmer push (during the half section put your arm behind your back[2] keep your eye on the tama - dont move your finger up and down, keep it as still as possible.
Catch the ball, unwrap then a simple areoplane!

I hope this helps
Good luck
Rob

P.S - you dont have to catch the tama in sara grip slip grip special, you can place it, if you want
 1. and anybody else who has troubles with full swirls
 2. its how I learned it

[user]emagdnim[/user], you don't have to land the first trick. Just place it in position and start from there.

Really??, aint that cheating?

IF eveybody agrees that you may just place it in position i will give it another go.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 26 October, 2013, 18:30:19
It's not cheating, that's always been the rule. From the first post in the thread:
the next combo always need to start with the 2nd(last) trick in the previous combo. (So if the second trick was a bird you can place the tama in bird position if you want)

...

Guidelines (To help for a nicer compilation video)
- You can start the new transition from the finish position of the previous trick. i.e. You can just place the kendama into position, you don't have to do the previous move. (But you can if you want to.)
So yeah, go for it!

Thanks [user]Sonicpearse[/user], good stuff!

Right then . . .

In view of a chat we were having somewhere on the forum the other day,

Endless Combo #45 is Lighthouse > Jump Lighthouse

(Hold the Lighthouse balance as normal, then jump in the air with both feet off the ground and land again while still maintaining the Lighthouse).

All good?

P.S. Remember to verify we'll need to be able to actually see your feet and the kendama in the shot, so make sure you film from an appropriate distance.

Good luck!

Filmed it, with a striped tama for the Earth Turn. Twice. Once with a slightly dodgy "cross-piece catch", once cleaner.

I don't know though, I've already been in this section 3 times. Maybe 4 is too many? It would be nice to see some new or less-frequent faces.
But then again, I bet Dimensions is trying for his 4th go too... :)

Anyone else trying it?

#48. Spike > Insta-UFO

From a the loaded ken in ken grip, lift up to horizontal (your fingers pointing upwards) and release with a little upwards motion. As you catch the ball, immediately push forwards into a UFO. No pausing in the transition! Catch UFO, hold pose, smile at camera. (Smiling optional, but you know you want to).

I tried it a few times last night, when I thought of setting it. Didn't get it, but felt like it was doable, with a little time. Yes, I was pushing too hard as well.

I think I got it but working on redo-ing it if this is not acceptable.

I'm just unsure as the tama moves a bit on the spike on the initial throw upwards.

here it is anyways:

[user]mreasyguy[/user], hmmmmmmmm... I'm going to have to download that and watch it frame by frame....
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 07 November, 2013, 21:45:14
Oooooh, interesting....

Right then, I really did have to look at it frame by frame, and this is what I see:

#1 Grip transition in progress... Fine.
#2 Hmmm, that's really close to being off the spike... Like 1 pixel close... Benefit of the doubt.
#3 Ball being grabbed and started to be pushed forwards.... Ken doesn't seem to have moved yet, but... still benefit of the doubt.
#4 Ball has definitely started on its forward path, but the ken doesn't seem to have started to move yet, as I would have expected.... Getting more doubtful.
#5 Ball has pushed further on, but only now does the ken start to move..... Conclusion: You inadvertently started the UFO spin with your hand, not with the ball push.

So sorry, but on balance I'm just going to have to fail that. :(

BUT, you can clearly do it! Tomorrow lunchtime?

The race is still on, folks!
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: mreasyguy on 07 November, 2013, 21:53:45
I did have my doubts with it as I said. I thought I got the tip of the spike but I can clearly see it was my hand, the whole action is just so fast you don't seem to notice things like that unless frame by frame.
Will retry tomorrow briefly, got very busy in work so lunch breaks get shorter.

Ok one more thing to know, i just wachted the video and i still do something a bit different, i start with an almost horizontal postion of the ken instead of trowing it up from vertical position... Still allowed? I'm almost back home and give it a try again. I know i can land this!

Yeah I'm sorry about the lighting, just wanted to get it done after my first attempt!

Right next trick, I picked this because I love the look of it.

so next trick is: Inverted reverse jumping stick (correct name?)

So your holding the tama, bring the ken and tama up vertically and flick forward with the tama to make a reverse jumping stick, catch like a stunt plane.

If you can film this from a side on view just so it's easier to judge!

Well, it's a bit late now, but no, the quarter-turn of the ken from vertical to horizontal should be in the lift, like [user]mreasyguy[/user] did it.

Maybe "Backhand 1-Turn Scoop Spike"?
But what about the grip? From where you finish a UFO, surely you have to swivel the ball in the hand to get into the right grip?

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 08 November, 2013, 00:44:06
Hmm, actually, I think you can get into position without changing the grip[1]. Here's what I think he means:
[noembed]http://juggling.tv/13582?pin=5555[/noembed]

If I'm right, please do the grip position change in your videos (i.e. start from "finished UFO"), otherwise it'll look like a weird edit in the compilation .
 1. It depends on exactly what grip you had on the tama when you did the UFO
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: mreasyguy on 08 November, 2013, 08:40:27
When I tried it you could do it from a ufo grip, I use the same tama grip to do this trick so no swiveling required.
You just have to raise your hand from the 90 to vertical to the right slightly and then snap the tama away from you once it's vertical to start the ken spinning. If it's done in one fluid movement it does work  :)

Respect for both, Void and mreasyguy for the frame by frame analysis of the trick... and for the 2nd version.

Seriously impressed, good work guys!

A little different to how I imagined but that's because I would do it without a grip shift/change.
But on that note the trick looks correct to how the Void explained it so I will accept it.  :)

Next trick?

But next trick: Backhand Tama Grip > Fast Hand Flying Top

(From backhand tama grip, throw the ball, with spin, so it leaves the ken. Catch the Ken then spike it!)
After you have completed the trick PLEASE smile then walk off screen. As this will be the last trick in the compilation video, we want it to look like it has actually ended.

if you require a video just ask

It wasn't very clear to see your starting position and you didn't hold it down long enough for me to tell :'(. But the rest was good!
Have another go!

A quick re-statement of the rules, for 51-75:
RULES
Trick Rules
- You cannot reply to your own trick.
- You must wait to re-enter until 5 other people have done a combo after you set one.
- You must wait to have your attempt verified by the previous setter before setting the next step.
- Use any competition-sized kendama.
- You should the new transition from the finish position of the previous trick. i.e. You can just place the kendama into position. You don't have to do the previous move, but you can if you want to. But if so remember to...
- Hold the start and finish positions of the combo still for a couple of seconds please.
Video Rules (To help for a nicer compilation video)
- Make sure you have adequate lighting. Please film in daylight if possible. Clips usually look very poor in artificial light.
- Please film in Landscape, not Portrait.

PLUS, to perhaps tempt a few more people to join in, BKA will be offering a prize to one of the entrants (drawn at random) for numbers 51-75. (You don't get an extra chance for entering more than once.)
An Orange Sunrise kendama.

No, it's your turn to set a trick (you just name it, you don't have to do it), for anyone else to do.

So, #52. [Spiked] > ????

It must be straight to another stalled position, no multiple catches allowed.

Hmmm... I'm not sure if you understand? You don't have to film a trick. You just have to type the name of a trick you want someone else to do. Like this, for example:
Quote
52. [Spiked] > Big Cup

...but of course, it doesn't have to be Big Cup, it can be whatever you decide. But it has to begin with [Spiked], because that's where you finished. It can be easy or hard. But it must not be a "repeat" from the Combo.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: joris.schweppe on 02 December, 2013, 20:41:47
oke sorry for the delay here is the trick:

"52. (spiked) > spacewalk 1 turn airplane
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)

Coo, it's really close on the final switch.... When judging, I often adopt the line of "Are there any reasons why I should fail this?", and in this case....

So, what's number 55?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: HansNickmans on 10 December, 2013, 21:11:07
So next (#55) is something like a whirlwind swap and pop:

1. In tama grip, throw the ken and tama up
2. Grab the ken with your weak hand
3. Drop the tama and pop it back up
4. Throw a whirlwind from your weak hand to your strong hand
5. Catch tama in base cup.

There is some creativity possible with the grips. Just take what goes best for you, if the above steps are in it..you're good!

I did state that the final catch had to be in base cup. Although I like this way of catching the ken and going into whirlwind.
Trying it myself, I caught the ken in a pen grip, flipping it into a whirlwind with my thumb and index finger, catching it in another pen grip.

Not saying that it has to be done that way, but I did say base cup...

Looks good to me! The whirlwind was possibly a little short on rotation, but I'm going to allow it, since the ken did go full circle.

Sorry for the late reply

Looks good to me! The whirlwind was possibly a little short on rotation, but I'm going to allow it, since the ken did go full circle. 

So, what's the next move Mark?

Awesome! :D

Okay so the next trick is.....

Make the ball drop down and swing to Bat

Relatively easy I guess, but I really can't think of anything else!!

Giving this one a try tommorow. I can do this. And just to know i understand it.
Base cup -> drop down -> swing to bat? :)
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BKA on 18 December, 2013, 21:03:07
It should probably be all in one motion:
Base Cup > Drop ball into a swing to Bat

Not: Base Cup > Drop ball > pause > swing to Bat

Never done this trick, Base Cup  Drop ball into a swing to Bat.
Seems like a lot of fun! going to try this trick this weekend.

Sara grip?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BKA on 18 December, 2013, 23:19:02
I think it should not be Sara Grip, as that would be difficult to see if the Bat is touching your fingers or not.

Inverted Ken Grip. (Holding near the Base Cup). Similar to what you'd use for Bat.

I've been trying to do a swing to bat and I find it way more awkward than swing to bird.

How exactly are we allowed to grab the ken? Can we put a finger or two under the small cup?

Bat- kenflip in.
So, since some people use "in" for "Spike", would that be Bat > ...
1. Half-Whirlwind Spike
2. 1.5 Whirlwind Spike
3. Either of the above
4. (Exactly 1) Whirlwind Stab (downwards)
5. Any of the above
... or...
6. Bat > Fast Hand [either "Whirlwind..." or "1-Turn...", depending on how you view it] Aeroplane
...?

I think you mean #6....
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Kendama+cliniK on 22 December, 2013, 00:38:41
I would like to see the 1.5 flip. I've tried it a few times and gotten close but haven't nailed it. I'd just like to see it done. Seems pretty achievable. I'll see if I can nail one on film just for a reference. Give it a few days and if no one nails it #6 would make me happy.

Not too shabby. A little funky on the grip, but I'll allow it. Go ahead, my friend! Set the next trick!
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: kendamatty on 24 December, 2013, 17:44:45
Thanks very much, I knew it was a tad off key the grip, but getting the ball to rotate sweetly was any pain any other way!

Right, the next one you'll need to limber up for...

Ken grip Spike -> penguin big cup (ken grip).

Believe me this is possible.  For reference, do a penguin base cup and then carry on the ken rotation for another 45 degrees so that your knuckles are facing the floor (i need to get down on a knee for this one and also tilt my head - my joints are getting on a bit).

Merry Christmas to all!

Matt

How is banking different from windwalker? Or did we just changed the name and I didn't noticed?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Kev on 15 January, 2014, 08:55:12
My understanding is that Banking and Wingwalker are very similar.

I believe that Wingwalker is like a Bird with the ken in a vertical(-ish) position while the tama only rests on the cup and doesn't touch the spike.

In Banking I think the Ken is held more flat / horizontally with around a 45 degree twist of the cups to the floor. You catch on the lower cup edge, which is the cup nearest you.

I hope this is right and helps you [user]Shalafi[/user]?

*As a point of note, this leads me to thinking - as Wingwalker can become Wingrunner, does Banking become Bankrunner or is there another term for hopping from bank to bank?*

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 15 January, 2014, 09:20:57
From the pics, I'd say that the banking has the tama touching the sarado, while the wingwalker does not... but I may be wrong in the appreciation.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Kev on 15 January, 2014, 09:32:13
Yes that's exactly right as far as I understand, hence the need for the 45 degree tilt.

So, here's my decision:
In the Instavid I said "Please film so that I can see the ball's not touching your thumb". But I didn't write that in the description, so perhaps Dimensions didn't watch the IG, only read the post. So....

If no-one else has posted it by Weds, 12:00, then I will accept Dimension's video. But I'd prefer a better-filmed one. (angle).

So #60 is still open for business.... for a short while.

Balance the tama on the spike with your index finger only!
The tama's string hole must not be touching the spike
Keep the Ladybug still for 3 secs (DONT use you fingers)

I would film in the day but always finish work in the dark, I'll try and get it redone for future use.

Now for next trick

Ladybug> Tap down spike.

So basically an earth turn motion to spin the hole of the tama the correct way and then tap down with the same index finger that held the ladybug to spike it.

I can upload a video if this doesn't make sense.

Right then. . .

I spent a while trying to write a description of what I'd like to see for the next trick but found it too tricky to describe clearly so I made this little video instead.

Hopefully someone ([user]BKA[/user]?, [user]The Void[/user]?) can help with the correct terminology?

The next trick for the Endless Combo (#63) is this:

Anyone had a shot at this? How are you getting on?

I've just started landing these now (although can't enter obvs!).

[As a point of note, it seems like a double rotation AKA 2 Turn isn't really any harder than a single but I'm looking for just a single rotation here for the Endless Combo].

Hi Sweets!
Awesome to have you joining in the Endless Combo. Unfortunately, it looks like you picked up an email a bit late, because
A) That's number 60, and we've moved on to number 63 now.
B) That's Bird > Wingwalker. Banking is on the inside curve of the cup rim, not on the rim itself.

Wanna go for # 63 instead? http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,1022.msg12104.html#msg12104 (http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,1022.msg12104.html#msg12104)

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: SweetsKendamas on 19 February, 2014, 15:43:44
Weak hand tama grip - > 1 and a half turn ufo switch to strong hand tama grip. I will make a video if you need but pretty much you start the ufo with your weak hand, let it do 1 and a half spins, while the ken is spinning in the air switch the tama to your strong hand and finish the ufo. Can't wait to see this one done! Was messing around and this seemed pretty difficult and fun.

Alex, we just want to check something: previously you used a skating term "frontside" when describing a trick, which confused a few people. So this time, we just want to check about "frontward".

Do you mean...

Handswap Double Jumping Sick (The "normal" Jumping Stick direction)
...or...
Handswap Reverse Double Jumping Stick
?

Void, you said strong hand with knowing most people are right handed,
if you are lefty you start with left if that is your strong hand
#64 i ended up right handed , so #65 need to start with right hand too, isn't?
then Handswap Reverse Double Jumping Stick, from the right hand to the left hand again.

it looks weird if you connect my clip end up righthanded with a clip from a next person (that is trong handed lefty) starts with left.
does not make it a endless combo isn't?

Yeah, great job Joris,
i like the right hand Handswap to the left hand Reverse Double Jumping Stick better,
and it will looks great when our both clips are connencted.

sick you show them both, i knew you could do it

So I guess you can comeup with #66 now?

Thanks Alex,

I want to see something with candle stick so here we go!

#66: from 'weak/left' hand single flip and grab the candle with your 'strong/right' hand, after trowing the ken into single flip immediately trow the tama to your your 'strong/right' hand as well so you land both in some kind of juggle to candle stick

Hi Mr. Tiller, welcome to the forum!
Trick looks good to us, but to stick by the rules, we'll just have to wait for joris to confirm it's okay with him.
Then hopefully you can set the next trick for everyone else.
Cheers!

It sounds more like a hand-swap jumping stick than airplane, I don't see the ken swinging in the description.

Nice one Mr. Tiller!
It sounds more like a hand-swap jumping stick than airplane, I don't see the ken swinging in the description.
I think "b" covers the ken swinging. If it was all done from the strong hand, it would be a "Fast Hand Aeroplane". With the Handswap, I think we can call it a Fast Handswap Aeroplane.

Ok
From penguin lighthouse
1) somersault the ken and catch it in your weak hand - whilst still holding the tama in your strong hand
2) fully extend the string
3) drop the ball on to the spike - dead drop

In BKA English I think it should be
Somersault to weak hand dead drop

Cool Beans!

Ok For the next one I have had a good think and feel this is doable.

Weak hand throw to strong hand insta-jumping stick.

The way this works is you throw the ken with the tam on top to the side, the tama will slightly slide down off the spike as it gets upside down where you will then catch the tama with your strong hand and flick forward to make the ken instantly do a jumping stick.

Hope this all makes sense.

I had a go at this. Tricky, can't seem to get the right timing on the insta-push. Also, not sure which direction to exit the weak hand from. Left or right both seem possible. Luckily, I'm not allowed to do it, so I don't have to get frustrated. :-)

Great, ta Adam!

Ok so endless combo #72:-
tama grip > landing strip (no sleeves!)

to explain - from tama grip: attempt a jumping stick, the ken spins 270 degrees and lands your naked fore arm (spike pointing towards the inside of your elbow). STALL FOR A COUPLE OF SECONDS - NO SLIDING OFF!

Then an awesome pose and you set the next trick from an interesting position. Gottit?

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: SamB on 15 April, 2014, 15:01:24
That's too much pressure so I'm going to pass the buck...

Starting from strong arm landing strip (no sleeves spike facing you) somersault to weak arm landing strip.
In my case, ken flat on right forearm, spike facing me, throw ken for a full somersault to left arm, flat, spike facing me, hold still for a couple of seconds, no sliding, tama in right hand the whole time.

Not as easy as I thought but totally doable!

Endless Combo #75 - juggling videos hosted @ Juggling.tv (http://juggling.tv/14035#id=http://juggling.tv/nuevo/econfig.php?key=cd29fead92651a9ddd9c)

Hope it is ok.

This time I took Void's advice: Always practice on camera. Last time I landed the Bat-kenflip-in out of camera. Not this time.

Somehow, the audio is totally out of sync in J.tv, but if you get the original, it is ok.

Also, sorry about the terrible lightning.

Well done Shalafi - practicing in front of the camera really does pay of! Although I can't see the tama land, it all looks very good - so, what devious trick are you going to set for #76?!

Post by: shalafi on 23 April, 2014, 21:28:35
Thanks Sonicpearse! (I really did not had a better place for the camera while practicing with a couch underneath)

If someone is interested, the trick for this one is to grab the ken and move forward (away from you) to do the flip, if you try to grab the ken and move it towards you it is way harder.

So, for the next trick, I want to see a (I hope this is the right name): Candle grip big cup -> Fast hand stab.

That is, from candle grip big cup.
*Throw the tama
*Throw the ken, switch to pen grip
*Stab the tama (also known as downspike)

(You can throw ken and tama together if it makes it easier)

- You must wait to have your attempt verified by the previous setter before setting the next step.
- Use any competition-sized kendama.
- You should start the new transition from the finish position of the previous trick. i.e. You can just place the kendama into position. You don't have to do the previous move, but you can if you want to. But if so remember to...
- Hold the start and finish positions of the combo still for a couple of seconds please.

Im starting to think im the most unlucky forum member with these random prize draws...

In 3 of the 5 draws ive been "one number away"[1]
in the member map, when you could win a free copy of "Click!" it landed on the number above
in the Membership bonus draw it landed one below
and then in this it was one above!

ah well, ther's always Oultink, the next membership draw and the next EC draw
Well done [Edit: names removed. Watch the prize vid to find out if you won!] the winners! And well don to all future winners...

-Rob

<edit> actually thinking about it I did win [user]kev[/user]'s picture competition, but that was a "out of a hat" draw instead of a random number
 1. "One number as in one number in a list, as they are random technically everyone is "One number away!"

Cool, thanks for the compilation. Bad luck in the price draw, still, it was just a 12.5% chance of winning (actually less, but whatever)

I'm happy if I can appear on every video (so far I made it, barely, but made it)
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 24 April, 2014, 18:08:55

12.92%, actually, in this case.

So, I'll share a tactic to increase your chance of winning: Enter as many times as you can! Although you don't get multiple chances for repeat entries, it does reduce the number of slots available for other people (your opponents!) to enter.

Of course, I'd like to see a bunch of different (and new!) people entering, I'd also like to see the Combo keep rolling along at high speed. :-)

Come on, everyone, join in!

Post by: DamaLife24 on 26 April, 2014, 04:28:02
Ok so I'm unsure of how this endless combo works. Do I start in candle grip with the tama already on big cup? And then add on to the trick with my own trick?

Almost, Bryan. There is no hand swap, you hold the ken with your strong hand and do the stab with the same hand.

So, this one is not valid, but I'm sure you can do it.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Kev on 26 April, 2014, 08:22:33
Hi Bryan, good to have you on board. If you are going to try refilming your Endless Combo attempt don't forget to film in landscape not portrait too!

Post by: DamaLife24 on 30 April, 2014, 07:09:08
Thank you shalafi! That took forever its difficult switching grips mid trick!

The next trick is
#77: from the ending grip of #76 throw and switch to
Tama grip and perform UFO twice.
[Mod edit: nope, sorry. See next post]

Go!
(Hope I formated this correctly. I'm not very good with explaining a trick sequence.)

Post by: BKA on 30 April, 2014, 11:23:01
Hi there. Well done on hitting it!

For the Endless Combo though, we say that each move must be from one static position (the end of the last move) to another static poistion. So actually, you've just set 3 tricks:
1. Switch to tama grip
2. UFO
3. UFO

You could perhaps say "Switch to tama grip and Insta-UFO". (Although that's quite similar to #48, although that was from ken grip, not from Sara grip.)

So we'll have to ask you to choose a different trick please!
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: DamaLife24 on 30 April, 2014, 15:34:02
Endless combo #77

1. From the end position of #76 do a whirlwind. That's a 360 degree rotation of both tama and ken separated and end in ken grip. 
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 30 April, 2014, 15:38:47
I believe whirlwind earth turn has been already set (I did set it if I recall correctly)
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BKA on 30 April, 2014, 15:41:14
Not from Sara grip, it hasn't, [user]shalafi[/user]. So that's a different transition (and quite a bit trickier!), so it's allowed.

Or faithful outlink! Plenty of references! Although to slightly go against what rob said, lighthouse to axe is a tad easier in my opinion as there is less travel time for the ken, and you can line it up perfectly making sure that the big cup only has to drop down a couple of inches instead of relying on the perfect pull up ;-)
Good luck!

And unless I have miscounted (Void, Rob, Kev and Me), unfortunately you need to wait until one more round to participate...

Still open!

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: kendamatty on 02 June, 2014, 17:20:05
I have faith that you can do it! Place the axe in an axe first so you can learn the exact hole position required for balancing. A  worn in tama will also help with grip of the shaft on the ball. Then all I can advise after learning thst is minimal throw up from the LH and once the axe is on, I find that any wiggles will make it fall off. So the big cup rim will almost bite into position for a minimal cushioning catch.  Good luck!

Some classically bad mobile phone framing but I got it!

My tip for Shalafi, if you still want to try it, is to keep everything vary straight, have the hole facing you so you are looking down it and then the drop is a small movement and the ken should fall straight down.

Right, I think I will go with this:

So start the spin by basically doing a stilt flip, throw up tama, catch ken and then catch the tama on the base cup.

Hi DamaLife24,
Well done. Now, it's fine to set the trick you describe, but if you only throw and catch the ken, without also throwing the tama, then it's not a "juggle", it's a "Fast Hand (Orbit) Spike" or "Whirlwind Orbit Spike". Not sure if you're looking for a 1.5 or a 0.5 rotation on the ken? So....

Next up!
Spike > diving

0) start in a spiked position
1) placed the kendama on an elevated surface - like a table, desk, etc
2) grab the tama and remove from the spike
3) move the tama below the ken
4) tug the string
5) spike it - you should finish in an aeroplane position

[Mod Edit: Nope! See later post...]

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: the milky oolong on 09 June, 2014, 16:47:57
Unfortunately, [user]shalafi[/user], it's a hop>grip switch>catch, diabolically tricky but I think it's really unusual, and after getting used to the transition, it's do-able. So, no swing á la Trapeze Acrobats, if that's what you mean. I have faith that you can nail it though!

Post by: The Void on 09 June, 2014, 18:00:38
Kev suggested/challenged me to this at BJC. I forgot about it at Bungay, but I just gave it 20 minutes. Seems like I get closest if I give the ball a reverse Earth Turn. That was a lot of up-and-down though, so it's a nice sit down for me now. Maybe I'll give it another blast at the juggling club tonight....
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: the milky oolong on 09 June, 2014, 19:36:44
As far as I'm concerned, you can Earth Turn in any direction to help the trick, it's just like Spike > Bird, sometimes the extra rotation helps the stickiness of the landing, but I'd be most happy with a pop-up, grip-switch, land, or at least that's the kendama 'problem' I was trying to address when I set the trick (working on Spike>Whirlwind Spike right now, demands absolute spatial intertia of the tama on take-off, the ken part being relatively straight-forward). That said, do as ye wish, it's not boarding school!

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: the milky oolong on 10 June, 2014, 14:45:29
It's diabolical, I'll admit, but just try different variations on keeping the tama rising straight up, and work out a way to get the ken to flip past the horizontal. 35°C today in Berlin (hence being a shirtless wonder, apologies), but I managed to get it down on camera:

Bird to Monkey's Chair (grip switch, no Earth Turn) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbHUtE3oK2s#)

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BKA on 10 June, 2014, 14:47:56
OHHHH! So it's a variation on Monkey's Chair, not in the standard Candle Grip? That makes it a lot easier.....
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: the milky oolong on 10 June, 2014, 15:01:14
Eek,  :-[ 

To be honest, I thought what made Monkey's Chair was the frontal balance on the upturned Big Cup - have seen K.Cima doing it in candle grip but didn't make the connection that this was the standard grip. My apologies, guys.

Where do we go from here? Shall I try and get it down properly on video tonight, or do we continue with the accidental variant?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 10 June, 2014, 22:55:54
Tried again this afternoon. I'm still trying for the "proper" version. Got close, but 15 minutes was long enough trying today.

If you're happy to accept someone posting "whichever" version, then we'll leave it, I guess. We can always amend the description to match the trick if necessary. :D

Damn guys,

Hate to have let you down. I've been trying to get this down on video all night but my nerves are shot from practising for Saturday (German Kendama Open), have had a few near-misses with this trick but it's definitely much harder than anticipated, still not impossible. Give meaning to the pop-up and keep the switch short and crisp, you should start getting there. Sorry for the messy despcription.

You haven't let anyone down - you've set a nice challenge for people. It's not expected that you do it too.

But you haven't yet said "either version" or "my version" or "candle grip version". Let us know which version(s?) you want!

I Had to have a go at this one, as it's my last day where I get to play & film kendama at work!

Endless combo #86 - juggling videos hosted @ Juggling.tv (http://juggling.tv/14167#id=http://juggling.tv/nuevo/econfig.php?key=0a5e16e7efa2439943fb)

Nice one [user]Kendamatty[/user]! Looks good to me (although you'll have to wait for [user]the milky oolong[/user] for your official EC approval).

You may remember I challenged you (and others) to do this trick at the BKO offering a pint / beverage of your choice to the first person to do it - that still holds good as far as I'm concerned so next time we meet up, it's my round  ;)

Great trick! (Can't wait until I can actually do it myself!).

[user]Void[/user], I know your pain. I ran the battery completely down on my camera twice during filming for this one trick, both variations included.

[user]kendamatty[/user], bang on the mon(k)ey; you, sir, are through. Extra props for getting it down during that verbal torrent in the background - I for one can't work under such conditions!

Next?

Post by: kendamatty on 12 June, 2014, 11:41:21
Thanks Kev that'd be lovely, I do like a cheeky beverage once in a while!
And Milky, yes the noise in the background was a disgruntles girlfriend fresh from an Exam, she caught me mid kendama session.  I can't complain too much, she did bring the camera for me to film it ;)

Ok next trick -  monkey's chair > Penguin grip candle (catching the tama on the basecup).  I had a couple of standard penguin catches out of this, so i think it is possible.  Please note that the spike must clearly leave your fingers when doing the grip change (no cheeky shuffles here!)

Good luck!

Post by: kendamatty on 12 June, 2014, 11:43:51
And for those wanting to still try it - the earth turn makes this incredibly difficult.  A straight high pop up with the bird and then let the spike fall into your hand opposed to a high throw up with the ken should do it.

Post by: BKA on 12 June, 2014, 11:59:28
Hey, Matt, if it's "Penguin grip" (The one in A-Tunbridge Wells), then it can't be "Candle", since Candle is necessarily Candle Grip.
So ,do you mean "Penguin Base Cup" or "Penguin Candle"? Presumably the former, since you mention a grip change, and Penguin Candle would not have a grip change....

I uploaded the trick, but when I go to replay it, the screen starts of sideways and then goes black. Does anyone know why this is happening?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BKA on 13 June, 2014, 19:34:09
At a guess, you filmed on your phone, but tilted it just before you started filming, and the orientation sensor got confused? Don't know about the going black bit though. Does it look okay when you play it back on your camera/phone?

Post by: BKA on 13 June, 2014, 19:39:41
Ah, just seen it on JTV. Well, that looks like the correct trick, but you filmed in Portrait , and the rules say you have to film in Landscape. (Otherwise it will look out of place in the next compilation video.) Any chance you can film it again, but turn your camera so the screen is sideways, first? (You may need to stand slightly further back to fit the whole trick in.)

Eek, look after yourself, [user]Sonicpearse[/user]!

Nice to feel some solid practice playing off; have been doing four-trick lines for each basic trick form (Earth Turn, Aero, Lighthouse, Bird, etc), with variants and each ending on a reverse (for example, Swing In Earth Turn, Earth Turn, Flying Top, Reverse ET), really sharpening up my transitions. Picked up the KROM and landed this first try or die!

Not sure if both ken and tama have room in my hand without using part of the wrist as in the video, and I don't have small hands.

The close up is to show that they do not touch and that there is no "grabbing"

Ok, so, from having the ken and tama both in your flat palm (you can place them as you wish) -> Backhand scoop spike.

* Grab tama
* Throw ken spinning in normal direction
* Catch when ken is vertical (+- 30 degrees)

Ideally, the ken does a 1.25 turn, but I'm also ok with a 0.25 turn
For bonus points you can throw ken and tama, then grab tama, then catch, but I'm ok with grabbing the tama before the throw.

Post by: Dimensions on 26 June, 2014, 18:00:38
I had a good think about what will be next so I ended up with this...

Back of Weak Hand Inverted Balance > Drop and Fast Hand Drill
if your not too sure what to do:
1) start in a Back of Weak Hand Inverted Balance - balance for at least 2 seconds
2) drop everything and catch the ken
3) Do BKA Outlink 2014 Trick #10 - juggling videos hosted @ Juggling.tv (http://juggling.tv/13953#id=http://juggling.tv/nuevo/econfig.php?key=1d496e754ad7185d0617)[1]
 - 20 degree margin of error
4) catch the drill and stay in that position for a few seconds

GO!

 1. ahh, our trusty Outlink

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)

Hey Rob, since catching the ken could be seen as the next "static point", we're going to tweak your description and say that the Drill must be done immediately after the catch. (i.e. Continuous movement required) Please watch out for that when approving any attempts.

[user]DamaLife24[/user], [user]The Void[/user], [user]Dimensions[/user], [user]Kev[/user], [user]kendamatty[/user], [user]SamB[/user], [user]mreasyguy[/user], [user]Dimensions[/user], [user]the milky oolong[/user], [user]jsirois31[/user], [user]shalafi[/user] & [user]donald grant[/user] are now entered into the prize draw for rounds 76-100 (http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,1022.msg14599.html#msg14599).

Next trick is:
93. [from Back of Weak Hand Inverted Balance] > Drop to Fast Hand Drill
1) start in a Back of Weak Hand Inverted Balance - balance for at least 2 seconds
2) drop everything and catch the ken
3) Immediately do [noembed]http://juggling.tv/13953[/noembed] (20 degree margin of error)
4) catch the drill and stay in that position for a few seconds
RULES
Trick Rules
- You cannot reply to your own trick.
- You must wait to re-enter until 5 other people have done a combo after you set one.
- You must wait to have your attempt verified by the previous setter before setting the next step.
- Use any competition-sized kendama.
- You should start the new transition from the finish position of the previous trick. i.e. You can just place the kendama into position. You don't have to do the previous move, but you can if you want to. But if so remember to...
- Hold the start and finish positions of the combo still for a couple of seconds please.
Video Rules (To help for a nicer compilation video)
- Make sure you have adequate lighting (http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,44.msg11118.html#msg11118). Please film in daylight if possible. Clips usually look very poor in artificial light.
- Please film in Landscape, not Portrait, not Square.
Successful entrants get put in the prize draw.
[user]The Void[/user], [user]shalafi[/user], [user]donald grant[/user], [user]DamaLife24[/user] & [user]Dimensions[/user]must sit out round 93.
Good luck everyone!

Unfortunately I am unable to continue my quest to get this trick on the grounds that I can hardly walk after a suspicious'pop' in my knee yesterday.
However, I can report that my mystery prize has arrived! (From endless combo #50 - #75)  I think it had got lost in the great GB postal service so many thanks Cliffdama & congrats on the wedding!

Hey, that's just great! I approve!

So, as [user]Void[/user] is on his merry way to (I think) Ireland right now, he's asked me - pending my afore-given approval - to state his desired next trick, which I gladly reveal to be:

"[from Opposite Lunar] > Fast Hand Knee Stab
i. Throw ken and tama up together
ii. Catch ken (preferably pen grip, but not required)
iii. Stab tama into the top of your raised knee/thigh.
iv. Remain balanced on one leg, holding tama in contact with leg, for 3 seconds.
See 0m21s of Saturday night Kendama & knee stabbing on Vimeo (http://vimeo.com/29198248) for a Knee Stab." ~ The Void

Ouch, sounds promisingly painful for the inaccurate Stabbers out there. All down with that?

So, it looks very similar to Base cup -> Aeroplane, but it turned out to be quite more difficult although indeed they are of the same style.

I was not really happy with my only video on this block, so I gave this one a try.

Is that how you wanted it? I was not sure if that is an aeroplane or a 1-turn aeroplane.

Also, completely unrelated, I hope DamaLife will appreciate the new look of my goatee :-P

Well, it looked to me like the spike turned 360° from pointing downwards ( in the Bat position), to pointing downwards again inside the tama ( in the Aeroplane position). So therefore I would say that the trick you are requesting is a 2-Turn Aeroplane, no? Which is fine, of course, just need to be clear about it.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: DamaLife24 on 11 August, 2014, 23:31:44
Yes void now that I think about it you are correct. If you go based off of starting position of the ken. So I retract my earlier statement. Shalafi your first attempt is the trick I requested in writing so I'll accept it.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: DamaLife24 on 11 August, 2014, 23:33:35

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 12 August, 2014, 08:39:52
Ah, ok then. I believe the ken turned 350 degrees ;-)

So, next trick is going to be the Kendama spin I learned from Jake. In lack of better name I'll call it Jake's gunslinger.

From aeroplane grip, place your index on top of the cup on the right.
Make the kendama turn around your finger clockwise (from your point of view). The kendama does 1.5 turns.
End position is pen grip with the tama on top.

For more details: http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,1912.0.html (http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,1912.0.html)

Tip: It is a big motion, you'll need to move your arm a lot. It is a lot like a reverse gunslinger, but in a different plane.

Next trick is:
99. [from Aeroplane] > Jake's Gunslinger
From aeroplane grip, place your index on top of the cup on the right.
Make the kendama turn around your finger clockwise (from your point of view). The kendama does 1.5 turns.
End position is pen grip with the tama on top.

This looks a good trick - I was trying last night but just couldn't generate enough force whilst gunslinging sideways to keep tama on spike. Gotta keep on trying...
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 13 August, 2014, 09:27:09
@Sonicpearse hope this helps: You have to do almost a spiral with your arm, starting left, then up and right (big movement) and then down and a bit left (very fast)

The movement looks a lot like a golden spiral: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_spiral (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_spiral)

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: SamB on 14 August, 2014, 11:50:45
Yes!

OK so EC 100 is a cause for celebration, the trick is a tricky one to round out the combo:

Sara grip whirlwind earth turn[Mod edit: Nope: see below!]

BUT

Your video has to be a party!

Any kind of party you like! Maybe with decorations, balloons, streamers, cake, maybe a dance party, a pizza party, a fancy dress party, a fancy dinner party, birthday, wedding, bar mitzvah, one man super party (a personal favourite), kendama party, a rave in cave with Dave, any kind of party you like but there has to be a party for EC100!

If your video is some boring 6 seconds in a common room with a boring whiteboard in the background while you microwave soup I'm not going to accept it.

UNLESS

This is your first trick in the endless combo, then that is enough cause for celebration.
In which case I'll accept a sara grip earth turn anywhere!

Make sense?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BKA on 14 August, 2014, 12:34:49
Same as number 77. Please choose another trick!
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: SamB on 14 August, 2014, 12:45:10
Whoops I missed that one. So...

REVERSE sara grip whirlwind
(earth turn is optional)

So from the player's perspective the ken would be thrown, the ball leaves the spike, the ken spins anti-clockwise then caught in sara grip again and the ball is spiked. It doesn't matter if the ball spins or not.

It still has to be a party, unless you are new to the combo!

I dont think that Sam's set has been done before. EC 77 was in to Ken Grip. I think Sam wants it back to Sara Grip?
Also nice twist Sam!
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: SamB on 14 August, 2014, 15:24:56
To clarify the trick I want you to do is like this (as described from a right handed player's perspective):

Whilst having a party
Start with a loaded ken in sara grip
Move your hand in an anticlockwise rotation so your little finger is moving upwards and thumb downwards
This means the spike with the tama on it is now pointing the floor
Flick the tama off for an anticlockwise spinning earth turn (optional but I think easier)
Throw the ken so it rotates anticlockwise, base cup moving up and to the left
Allow the ken to rotate in the air 270-360 degrees
Catch the ken in sara grip
Spike the tama
Continue to party

This is different to EC77 because the rotation is in the opposite direction, the catch is in sara grip rather than ken grip and there is a party going on.

So does this meen you spike the tama from the side. Or just the 270 so it's pointing a bit upwards?
One more thing i'm a lefty so for me it would be a clockwise whirwind (to make it reverse. Spike oes down, base goes up) ?  Never done something bizar like this  and think i'm never able to land it ^^.

Keep trying. Post a video of your best near-misses, flying squirrel costume or not. The Endless Combo is for all forum members, there just has to be a certain level of challenge in order to make things interesting. And remember, I think most of the regular posters would admit that their first landing of an Endless Combo trick happened while just trying to work it out, which is pretty much like the illogical statement 'I can't do that trick; let's film me doing that trick.'  So, get involved! :P

Peter and I had a session at the party, but there were way too many interested newcomers wanting to try it out, and we quickly shifted into newbie coaching mode and had to forego the Endless Combo shot.

Thanks, Will. Alright then, the next one is...

i. Throw the ball off the spike, across your body.
ii. Bounce the ball off your opposite forearm.
iii. Bounce the ball off your knee. (Either knee is okay).
iv. Catch the ball on the Base Cup.

This is a fairly simple one, so I hope some newbies will try to join in. Since there are no prizes now, I'll ask that if you've been in the EC before, then please wait at least for a few days to give some other people a chance to join in.

from end cup, throw & swing onto spike.
Probably safe to assume from the "&" that the string must go taut at some point.

Going to take controll, and assume it's a swing in. So...

Next trick is:
103. [from Sara grip Base Cup] > Swing In
- Start on Base Cup
-Throw Tama to the side
- Continue the swing
-Swing on to Spike (still in Sara Grip)
-Beginners Only

The forum doesn't *host* videos. (It embeds them from links) You have to upload a video to some site: Either a video hosting site like youtube, vimeo, juggling.tv, etc, or to your own server, or perhaps to a file hosting site like megaupload, dropbox, or similar. Then simply post a link to the video on the forum.

Must be Sara grip, 'cos that's how the last one ended. But I guess Ben is wondering whether a Stab is okay compared to a normal (pointing upwards) Spike. I'd go for the latter to be sure, but you never know.

Great thanks!

Ok for Endless Combo #106 I'd like to see you go from the aeroplane catch position into a "Pistolero Drop".

(NOTE: Normally I call a 2 finger balance on the side of the spike with the tama in the base cup a Pistolero, hence why I guess we can call this a Pistolero Drop?!)

Make sense?

Endless Combo #106 Aeroplane Catch > Pistolero Drop.

I know I can't enter this round but I've been trying it & I concur with Void - this is deceptively difficult trick... trying to catch the Ken after string is taught but still failing.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Kev on 29 October, 2014, 15:27:36
It is tricky but it can be done.

[user]Sonicpearse[/user]- You don't have to wait for the string to go taught before catching the ken on your fingers.

My advice is during the throw to pop the ken out of the tama by the smallest amount necessary to achieve separation then immediately get the two 'pistol' fingers in position under the cup *before* the string goes taught. (Big cup seems significantly easier to me). From then on it's all about major cushioning (great practice for the knees!) and keeping everything in the vertical so as to not knock the balancing ken off.


Bon chance!

EDIT: I just tried doing this by just dropping the tama from the aeroplane position, this is much harder! Maybe that's what you were trying?

Think 'pop and drop' rather than just drop alone!

As Dimensions says in the official post - 'Throw everything'!

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 30 October, 2014, 08:12:33
Ah, pop and drop sounds simpler.

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: LarsVegas on 04 November, 2014, 21:02:52
I try regularly, but I have hard times to balance the ken on my finger even if I just place it there. The weight on the string pulls it out of balance more often than not. And we're not even talking about catching and balancing it. I find, that if it's not absolutely in the right angle, it directly tilts over

How do you avoid that?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Kev on 08 November, 2014, 09:26:26
Hey guys, thanks for trying!

I wrote a big reply to this post a few days back but only just noticed it hasn't shown up - (I was walking out of a wifi spot and into the 3G as I pressed send so maybe my phone managed to lose the message in the ether.)

Lars, my own experience is that the balance isn't too bad, maybe you're doing it slightly differently or have a slippy kendama?! Perhaps you just need to practice the balance a little longer on its own and check the pic to make sure we are doing the same thing.

Although it's a tricky one, I've managed to do this trick myself a couple of times (although it's taken a lot of attempts) so I'm sure you guys can do it!

One thing that may help as an intermediate step is to go from the Aeroplane catch then popping/dropping to Candle Grip rather than the Pistolero. Once you can do that it feels like the Pistolero is not far away. Just a thought.

Sorry for holding up the EC! It's one of my favourite things on the forum and I like to see it flowing along.

Anyone getting closer?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Dimensions on 08 November, 2014, 10:00:04
[user]Kev[/user] so we can catch it in candle grip before we enter the balance/string goes taught?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Kev on 08 November, 2014, 10:04:39
No.

I was saying a good intermediate step to learning the trick was to break it down to something simpler.

So practicing aeroplane grip to candle is easier than than aeroplane grip to Pistolero.

It's just an idea for learning the move.

Once you can do aeroplane grip to candle you then just need to learn to do it without the thumb and hey presto - Pistolero!
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)

Well then Matt, it's a tricky trick indeed!

You can certainly have that - well done.  8)

(Super style point / future reference in case the Pistolero becomes 'a thing'. I'd like to see straighter barrel fingers - maybe you did them but hard to tell from the vid.).

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Kev on 12 November, 2014, 23:09:11
Yes indeed. I didn't specify which cup or which side.

Raises an interesting point though. I guess for precision we'd specify the cup and side in future e.g. Big/Small Cup Inner/Outer Pistolero - all just variants, all pretty tricky!

Well done again Matt.  :)

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: kendamatty on 13 November, 2014, 08:26:43
Ah yes good spot void! I suppose it would be difficult to shoot a pistol with my fingers on the other side of the trigger..but thanks to kev's leniency/lack of gun knowledge  the show goes on!

And yes for style points,  trigger fingers straight in the future!

Next trick for #107:

Pistolero > lighthouse.

So ken does a 180 degree turn to land in the position and hold for your usual three seconds

It seems easy enough,  but after a few tries, keeping the ken tame for the lighthouse catch wihout making the string taught (so it jaunts away) can be a little tricky...

Best of luck to all!

Try and push up a little more rather than out, this will then enable a higher somersault which can make the second lighthouse easier to catch

Isn't this a reverse Figure-8?  If I send the ken forwards my natural motion is to do the 8-figure the other way around. Or am I missing something?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 22 January, 2015, 16:53:46
I think you might be right. But I guess you can do a half-pirouette during the swing...
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Dimensions on 22 January, 2015, 16:57:37
To my initial reading I didn't think it in reverse, so i'm assuming you add a half pirouette in.
Sonic?

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)

I gave it a go yesterday for 10 minutes. The half pirouette makes it a bit harder, but I should be able to land it.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 23 January, 2015, 19:26:54
Sorry for the poor light quality, I did had better light during the day but did not manage to land it.

I am doing 2.5 circles and a half turn (I don't think it qualifies as a pirouette). I noticed that it is possible to do one less circle, but they are not complete, that's why I went for this version.

I hope you like it :)

Thanks!

So, for the next trick... man, we've done a lot of things starting on aeroplane catch. *goes reviewing all the combo*

#112 [From Aeroplane catch] -> Somersault to opposite Lunar
* ken must do a complete flip (and a bit more).
* You can catch it on the small or big cup, but the base cup must look towards you.
* Will appreciate if the ken spins only on one axis.

* ken must do a complete flip (and a bit more).
I assume you mean "and a bit less?" Or are you requiring a double?
Taking my origional assumption, the official post goes:


Next trick is:
112. [from Aeroplane Position] > Somersault to Opposite Lunar
- Start from an aeroplane
- Release the ken in any direction
- Catch on catch on opposite lunar (a.k.a inward lunar)
- Keep ballanced still for 3 seconds

No, it is a bit more than one turn, because the spin is not reverse, it is a normal spin.

Edit: I was considering a reverse spin, but I thought a normal one would look nicer.

Look at the ken rotation and the fact that it is an opposite lunar.

1st cup passes very early (aprox 45 degrees) and the position is for an opposite lunar.
2nd cup passes later (about 225 degrees) and the position is for a normal lunar.
1st cup passes again (aprox 360+45 degrees) and the position is for an opposite lunar. THIS is the one that has to be catched.

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 24 January, 2015, 15:16:31

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Dimensions on 25 January, 2015, 15:40:15
I think Shalafi means: get in to an opposite lunar by flipping the ken in a standard J-stick motion (with the spike initially going away from you) and catch on an opposite lunar.
(Like in the IG video above)
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 25 January, 2015, 16:18:26
Yes, Dimensions is right, the ken has to do a standard J-stick motion. The video posted by the milky oolong does a reverse motion, not what I'm looking for.

I don't, it'll be my first landed one if it happens! I do have an old sticky terra which may do the trick, but even with a super sticky tama, and a light ken (the terra weighs in around 85 grams, which is not that light..), you need unbelievable cushioning ability. My attempts have been feeble at best, although I did get regular j-stick to an inward stilt... getting there!

I think we have have to call upon a new entrant to the endless combo for this one...
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 29 January, 2015, 11:09:27
I'll wait a bit longer to see if someone lands it, otherwise I'd allow any direction of rotation for it, as long as the ken spins more than 180 degrees.

I'd rather have the combo going than wait for a trick that is harder than I expected.

You should have thought of that before you set it! Didn't you try the trick yourself before you set it? To get the idea if it was feasible? (Genuinely interested.)
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 29 January, 2015, 12:33:08
Actually, I only tried it conceptually, mostly because I suck at lunars.

It looked like that rotation was not that bad, in fact I thought it could be easier than the other way around.

I should add trick conceptualist to my forum tag.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: the milky oolong on 29 January, 2015, 16:14:53
I've tried it just for fun here, and honestly, it's hard enough getting into Inward Lunar from Tama grip just pulling away from the ken and cushioning into it. Very hard work. Trying to flip into it, the added speed makes it a monster. I was pretty surprised to see that it is at all 'do-able'!
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 30 January, 2015, 22:14:09
Given that I've set up a trick much harder than I thought, let's make it easier.

Somersault to Inward Lunar. Flip can be in any direction as long as the ken rotates more than 180 degrees.

Ok, so next up for endless combo #113:

Job's a goodun Void, nice knee work to get it done! Over to you.

Post by: The Void on 06 February, 2015, 16:02:41
Thanks, Matt. Yes, I once heard someone say something about using the knees. I thought I'd give it a go. ;)

Right then, next up....

114. Candle > Tornado Candle
i. Throw everything straight upwards, giving the ken a tornado spin (along its longest axis)
ii. Catch back in Candle. (Proper Candle grip, please!)

The spin should be a minimum of 540˚.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Dimensions on 06 February, 2015, 16:15:26
Next trick is:
114. [from Candle] > Tornado Candle
- Start from Candle
- Release the ken straight upwards and let it spin
- Let it spin for a minimum of 540°
- Catch the spike again in a proper candle position
- Catch the ball on the base cup

RULES
Trick Rules
- You cannot reply to your own trick.
- You must wait to re-enter until 5 other people have done a combo after you set one.
- You must wait to have your attempt verified by the previous setter before setting the next step.
- Use any competition-sized kendama.
- You should start the new transition from the finish position of the previous trick. i.e. You can just place the kendama into position. You don't have to do the previous move, but you can if you want to. But if so remember to...
- Hold the start and finish positions of the combo still for a couple of seconds please.
Video Rules (To help for a nicer compilation video)
- Make sure you have adequate lighting (http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,44.msg11118.html#msg11118). Please film in daylight if possible. Clips usually look very poor in artificial light.

Allrighty, I wanna see:
1. Place ring finger under spike tip while in candlestick
2. Open up your thumb, first and middle finger for a 3 second balance on your ring finger.
3.throw it all up, grab the ken in Sara grip and downspike it!

Enjoy :D

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 11 February, 2015, 11:15:37
Not sure if this is valid. It looks like 2 tricks to me. And also, candle to fast hand stab was made as trick #12, there's also been a [Weak Hand] Candle balance.

Well, up to Dimensions, I guess.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: BKA on 11 February, 2015, 12:23:18
The balance is an active balance, not a static position, so that should be okay? And the Stab is from the balance, not from Candle, so that's different too. Dimensions is in charge, & can overrule if he thinks.... otherwise, proceed.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 11 February, 2015, 12:59:05
Reading it again carefully, I think it's right, it is a single trick. Somehow I made another step in between in my head.

I think we can proceed indeed.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Dimensions on 11 February, 2015, 15:55:40
Ok, so the rules at the moment are 'end in a static position' so I'll accept this trick.
I think I may need to change the rules in the first post...

Next trick is:
115. [from Candle] > Balance 'n' Stab
- Start from Candle
- Remove remaining fingers and balance on your third (ring) finger
- Keep the active balance for at least 3 seconds
- Throw everything up
- Grab the Ken
- Stab the ball (90° margin of error)

Ok, so without [user]Dimensions[/user]'s blessings, I'm going to suggest the next trick, which is:

(Sara grip) Bird

Half Earth Turns and 1.5 ETs allowed. Just get her on the old perch for 3 generous seconds.

If my attempt didn't fit the bill, give me a shout, and I'll run the balcony gauntlet a second time  :P

Post by: Dimensions on 20 February, 2015, 10:23:10
@Milky, the last trick was set by Paul and Paul accepted it therefore it is fine! ;D

Next trick is:
116. [from Loaded Sara Grip] > (Sara Grip) Bird
- Start from a stab position (in Sara Grip)
- Release the tama
- The tama may rotate as much as you desire
- Catch on bird - still in Sara Grip
- Balance still for 3 seconds

Looks good, Peter! From the camera it looks good too!

So, please suggest a trick from (Sara Grip) Bird, for example:

"(Sara/pen Grip) Bird > ..."
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 05 March, 2015, 11:25:19
I just added this to the first post, because it never got put in the rules:

"Moves should be from one still position to another still position (by any method/variation you specify).
e.g. "Big Cup > Around Japan" would not be allowed, because Around Japan has 3 still positions in it (small cup, big cup, spike). But something like "Big Cup > Whirlwind Penguin Spike" would be allowed."

@KenSan I'm going to step in here (I'm sure @shalafi will agree with me), but... rejected
The trick requirement begins from a Backhand Base cup
Just like in the picture here:
(http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=1022.0;attach=1249;image)

It must be above eye level then orbit down to a penguin below eye level

Yes, Dimensions is right. You have to start from the backhand position.

Your can place the ball there, no need to land the initial position.

Really you should leave the video there (at least until someone does this trick), so that other people don't make the same mistake you did. Also, it didn't look to me like your Orbit was around the ball, which is... what an Orbit is! :)

Okay if we are accepting my dodgy effort how about- Penguin base cup to Handle stall?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Dimensions on 08 May, 2015, 16:01:36
From my experience of American trick names, I assume 'Handle Stall' is a Backhand Clifftop

Next trick is:
122. [from Penguin Base Cup] > Backhand Clifftop
- Start from a penguin base cup
- Throw the ball
- Catch on Clifftop (outer ring) whilst still in ken grip
- Ballance still for 3 seconds

RULES
Trick Rules
- You cannot reply to your own trick.
- You must wait to re-enter until 5 other people have done a combo after you set one.
- You must wait to have your attempt verified by the previous setter before setting the next step.
- Use any competition-sized kendama.
- You should start the new transition from the finish position of the previous trick. i.e. You can just place the kendama into position. You don't have to do the previous move, but you can if you want to. But if so remember to...
- Hold the start and finish positions of the combo still for a couple of seconds please.
Video Rules (To help for a nicer compilation video)
- Make sure you have adequate lighting (http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,44.msg11118.html#msg11118). Please film in daylight if possible. Clips usually look very poor in artificial light.
- Please film in Landscape, not Portrait, not Square.

No joke, Rob. Just happened to me as I uploaded the vid. I put the url in normally, clicked post, then this video came up. Thought at first I'd copied the wrong url into the bar, but no, when I went back into the post the address had been changed automatically. No idea what that's all about, even if it is in about fifteen languages. Makes no sense to me, the vid uploaded normally.

I noticed yesterday that youtube links were importing that vid about the device content instead of the vid itself. I think it has to be with the http (without the s) support dropped by youtube (it happened to me when importing the one for the whirlwind)

I guess we should make a note on technical questions or so (or maybe @The Void will just read this and check it out)

In the meantime, you can just copy the video url from youtube (complete). It won't do the embedded player, but will be linkable.

@the milky oolong I sent you a clarification PM but never got a response - could you please clarify this so I can (not) edit this official post if needed

Next trick is:

Huh? Thought I responded to this PM. You're absolutely right, no ' bounce' so-to-speak allowed, a clean drop into hanging big cup start (triangle like you say), no problem with it being a bit wobbly on impact but tama should be clean in the big cup and the string straight over finger/pinch.

If anyone is still trying this, work out the point on your string that allows the tama to sit comfortably in the big cup while hanging. Focus on this bit and  set up a Clifftop, with the string facing in. Bend your knees, give a little push, grab this bit and follow both bits down.

@SamB two things .. It's 540 degrees and you turn Away from the Camera at one point so that the shadow Makes the Ken Not visible ..

Not Sure if i am Too strict, But getting exactly the 360 degrees is the hard Part about this trick (and also really balancing it out!) so i guess i will say No  :-[ please try again you can get it!!

(I'll make this post, since @Dimensions is busy this week.)

There is a prize of a Royal Kendama for one random participant between tricks 126-150.
Currently in the draw: The Void

657354239413481472[/tweet]] (http://[tweet)[/url]
Next trick is:
127. [from modified ken grip (see video for 126)] > Knee Bounce to Base Cup:
- Drop the whole kendama (with ball still on the spike)
- Bounce the base cup on the knee/thigh
- Catch the ken, and (immediately) swing up to Base Cup

RULES
Trick Rules
- You cannot reply to your own trick.
- You must wait to re-enter until 5 other people have done a combo after you set one.
- You must wait to have your attempt verified by the previous setter before setting the next step.
- Use any competition-sized kendama.
- You should start the new transition from the finish position of the previous trick. i.e. You can just place the kendama into position. You don't have to do the previous move, but you can if you want to. But if so remember to...
- Hold the start and finish positions of the combo still for a couple of seconds please.
Video Rules (To help for a nicer compilation video)
- Make sure you have adequate lighting (http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,44.msg11118.html#msg11118). Please film in daylight if possible. Clips usually look very poor in artificial light.
- Please film in Landscape, not Portrait, not Square.
the milky oolong, kendamatty, Cello_91, Sam B & The Void must sit out of this round.
Good luck everyone!

Post by: KenSan on 25 October, 2015, 20:30:19
Cheers @The Void

Well I was thinking something along the lines of from base cup to two turn and in!

Sorry my knowledge of trick names is very poor :-[

So from base cup throw up grab tama, ken does two rotations and in.

I guess you'd call that Fast Hand 2-Turn Aeroplane, or just 2-Turn Aeroplane.
Nice choice - should look good when we get to see it.

Post by: shalafi on 20 November, 2015, 13:12:47
Ok then, for #131

Throw ken and tama together without spin.
Switch to grab the ken (pen or ken grip are ok), the ken must be still loaded.
Take the ken out of the tama. The spike must be completely out of the hole.
Stab. The tama may or may not spin in between (I find it easier without spin, but it is up to you)

AFAIK This trick does not have a name.

Post by: The Void on 20 November, 2015, 13:36:49
A bit like [noembed]Unaeroplane (http://juggling.tv/15121)[/noembed] then, but going straight to Stab instead of back to Aeroplane. "Unaeroplane > Stab"?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: shalafi on 20 November, 2015, 13:40:28
Maybe we should call it "Unstab"
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 22 November, 2015, 14:30:04
"Unaeroplane" starts from "Aeroplaned", so I think "Unstab" would start from "Stabbed". This doesn't.

Anyway, I'm back in now (Only just! I thought it was 6 or 7 since my last go, but it's only 5), so here's this:
Endless Combo #132 - juggling videos hosted @ Juggling.tv (http://juggling.tv/15503#id=http://juggling.tv/nuevo/econfig.php?key=92483c063b48d7a33b36)

I had this about 1 in 10, so I was surprised to hit it first time on video.

Anyway...

#133 Horizontal Loaded Drill:
From "Stabbed" position (Pen grip):
- Hold Ken horizontal
- Throw/spin everything in a Drill spin
- Catch horizontal*, pen grip

* After the catch, you can tilt up a little, to stop the ball falling off.

Here's a demo (Oops, got the number wrong in the tweet - it's 133. Can't be bothered to change it.):

I think there's a difference.
"Zero" implies "throw [the ken] up/out with zero spin". But the ken isn't thrown in this trick. It's "taken out". It's the "taking out" that defines the "Un-" part of the trick.

Make sense?

Ok then, next trick.

From ken grip, knee in the ground.
To: Base cup on the other side of the leg.
The ken should pass under the leg
The tama should pass over the leg

In the end position the string should be around your leg, which should be an interesting starting point for some trick.

Post by: LarsVegas on 15 January, 2016, 18:12:12
Ouch, wanted to re-enter that game, but the string is too short to wrap around my upper leg. If I start in your final position, the tama would be caught on the left outside, right - no way ...

I just tried this and I think if you keep the throw really neat, it's do-able with a string length of plus two fingers below the base cup, and, Lars, I don't have the daintiest little legs in the world, I think you just need to work on keeping the throw real tight! Waiting on good lighting tomorrow to have a dig at this :)

As it happens it is harder than I expected, but it is doable with a 2 fingers string.

Include both hand exchanges. You can stand up as soon as you start to move your kendama, if you like.

@The Void just for some name clarifications: I called 138 "Static Leg Chop" as the end position is as if you have just 'chopped' with your leg and thye static part as its the ball which moves and not your leg - unlike a standard chop.
139: A nanchuku aeroplane is just the last move of the sequence so I called it "Nanchuku exchanges [plural, obviously] to nanchuku aeroplane".

There is a prize of a Royal Kendama for one random participant between tricks 126-150.
Currently in the draw: The Void, KenSan, Peat, mreasyguy, BenPycroft24, shalafi, nemo, SamB, s070s, Dimensions

Next trick is:
140. [from Aeroplane] > Tap Back Jumping Stick
- Throw The ken 90°
- Tap the end of the ken so it rotates in the opposite direction (450°)
- Catch the ken back in aeroplane

- You should start the new transition from the finish position of the previous trick. i.e. You can just place the kendama into position. You don't have to do the previous move, but you can if you want to. But if so remember to...

@Dimensions Re 138, fine, sensible.
Re 139, I was going to set "Nanchuku Aeroplane" and went to find Cima's video as the demo. I was surprised that I hadn't remembered the exchanges were part of the trick, so I set "the trick in the video", i.e. Nanchuku Aeroplane. But after reading your comment, I went back to look at Cima's entry in Click, and that doesn't include the exchanges! So he's contradicted himself! Ha ha. So, errr, okay, fine! :)

Ha ha. Cheers @Dimensions I got a bit carried away with that stare. I was brewing a cup of tea and hadn't expected to land the trick again that quick once I started filming.

Anyway, keeping with the tap theme, how about for the next trick a Double jumping stick! But instead of the regular way, throw the ken straight up out of the tama and tap the spike to get the double rotation!

Great! By the way, your face on landing the penultimate trick was absolutely priceless!

Ok, next trick, if I may be so bold:

loaded Tama grip > Jumping Stick [interrupt Captain Hook] Reverse Build the Lighthouse:

Throw the ken as per Jumping Stick.
When the Big Cup comes around, interrupt the spin with your index finger, rotating the opposite way to the ken's Jumping Stick rotation.
Release and catch in Lighthouse, as per Reverse Build the Lightouse/ Reverse 1-Turn  Lighthouse.
Hold for 3 seconds.
No rest between interrupt and direction reverse should be necessary, the whole motion can be done fluidly with a bit of practise.

Post by: LarsVegas on 27 January, 2016, 22:34:27
Well done - I had to slow down Youtube to 25% to see what you're doing.

About your trick, one question: in loaded tama grip - which cup does point towards you? Does it matter? (well of course it does, but what would you accept?)
One more: And how do you interrupt? Push the ken? Or the cup?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 28 January, 2016, 10:31:10
And how do you interrupt? Push the ken? Or the cup?
Interrupt with a Captain Hook. I know you know what that is, so I don't understand what you don't understand...?
If anyone else reading this doesn't know what a Captain Hook is, search the forum or read my books. :-)

One more: And how do you interrupt? Push the ken? Or the cup?

In loaded Tama grip, the small cup should be facing you, as if you have just landed a properly-executed Airplane.

You 'interrupt' the motion of the Jumping Stick roughly half-way, by catching the ken in Captain Hook and changing the direction of the spin to sort of 'Reverse Build the Lighthouse'. There is no easier way I can say this, and I don't really feel it requires a demo, but will upload one if @Dimensions  or BKA says I should.

So, again, launch ken from Tama, small cup facing you.
When the big cup comes around, use your index finger to hook under the big cup (known as Captain Hook, popularized by Donald Grant).
Rotate finger in opposite direction to the direction of the ken.
Release ken and catch in Lighthouse (the ken will have travelled as per any Reverse Lighthouse trick.

Hope this helps!

How's this? It was incredibly challenging, and I agree with earlier comments that it feels rather unnatural to reverse the flow, but here was my attempt!

Okay...

for EC #143
lighthouse > fast hand back hand stall (still for 3 seconds).

(Back hand stall = stall the ball on the back of your hand i.e between knuckles and wrist, all whilst holding the ken with the same hand).
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 25 February, 2016, 16:00:41

Starting with the tama on the back of the hand that's holding the ken < fast hand lighthouse.

(Pop up the tama from the back of the hand, place the base cup on the top of the tama while it's in the air then quickly grab the tama to end in a lighthouse.)

#150
(From lighthouse) stunt plane fast hand

To clarify...From lighthouse remove tama from under the balancing ken and place on spike like a stunt plane, then quickly (ideally before the tama even hits the sarado) let go of tama and grab ken in a normal grip.

In one of the photo comps, we said that we would accept kids' entries via their parent's account. Same goes here. We will edit it into the rules. Either KenSan Jnr can declare the next trick, or @KenSan can proxy one for him.

@KenSan A juggle normally has 2 catches or more in the hand. Do you want:

A) "1-Juggle to Lunar"
-throw tama
-throw ken, catch(1) tama
-catch in Lunar

or
B) "3-Juggle to Lunar"
-throw tama
-throw ken, catch(1) tama
-throw tama, catch(2) ken
-throw ken, catch(3) tama
-catch in Lunar

?

And then, as I'm typing this, I see @Dimensions' "450˚" comment. Ah. Any good, @KenSan (Jnr?)?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: KenSan on 08 April, 2016, 17:05:58
That was very well executed @The Void but yes we were thinking of the ken going through the full 1.5 rotations before catching the lunar.
So we will decline this effort.

Realised where I was going wrong: Believing @Dimensions that it was 450˚.  :P
As soon as I tried 560˚, it was fine[1].

Right then, next up:

153. [from Lunar] > (Half Somersault to) Index Trap Inverted Clifftop
[Log in to see attached image]
- Throw the ken up (so the base cup comes up towards you) with a half spin.
- Trap the base cup rim in the ball hole, using only your free hand's index finger.
- Film from the "palm side" of your ken hand.
- Make sure I can see the trap (keep your free hand high so that it's not in line with the camera).

Nice clean trap please - the rim must be fully in the hole.

Sorry, @the milky oolong , but I'm looking for the finger to trap the base cup touching only the base cup rim. Your finger is in the space between base rim and slip grip. I've already rejected a couple of attempts in person for this, so I have to stick to my guns. (Otherwise, would have accepted on the shooting, given you came in to camera, but would prefer a closer shot to start with.)

A) The description seems crystal clear to me, so I don't get what you don't get. But anyway, I happened to have a go at it on camera earlier, so here you go:


Edit: THIS IS NOT AN ENTRY, I'm still out for this round.

B) You keep signing your posts with "Instagram: @cruizerd4ft ", which is totally fine, but did you know in Profile>Forum Profile, there's a setting to input your IG name, which will add a linked avatar to your sidebar? Just FYI....

I got my own version on camera at lunchbreak, will upload it this evening.

I see at least 3 different ways to do the grip change, I opted for the one that made the most sense to me.

@s070s Is this one OK? I noticed that the secret grip is sort of inverted and I'm not sure if it is still considered a secret grip like this.

i'm really struggeling with this one
the grip is the right grip, but the position is different
witch will influence the next trick in the way you through it.

so sorry ...  Rejected
center cup needs to point away from you and the kensaki needs to be between pointy finger and thumb.

I was thinking, from secret grip hold it as if you just did a downspike.
Go to do an earth turn but instead of stabbing it. Spike it in penguin instead.

Thanks!

I am debating between a crazy trick or an easy one to let people enter.

mmm, let's go with the easy one.

From secret grip penguin, turn so the ken rests in the back of your hand, then let the ken drop and grab it on "reverse" ken grip (if such thing has a name)

No pushing, ken has to be dropped (like a faster than gravity)

This is the last grip change of outlink #3

@s070s From the end position of the last trick, twist your hand/arm until you are at @shalafi 's position at 0:16 in his video. Then do only the drop-grip change move from 016:-0:17 in shalafi's video. Hope that helps.

In theory you have to do a twist from a normal penguin to that position... BUT
Since you did it covering you eyes (which was not required), and it looks really cool, I'll give it the green light.

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: s070s on 24 December, 2016, 10:03:58
oke from there throw the ken a little bit up, knee bounce the centercup (its facing down ), so that the tama comes flighting (preferably to your right) Grab the ken in a reverse kengrip (your ken shouldn't have moved that much), complete the swing and catch the tama on the centercup


Next:
163. [from loaded reverse grip to reverse grip ]
- throw ken  up
- knee bounce centercup
- grap in reverse grip
- swing to centercup (tama)

make it silky-smooth peeps  8), no jacked swings

Quote
163. [from loaded penguin reverse ken grip] > Knee-bounce Swing To Base Cup

RULES
Trick Rules
- You should start the new transition from the finish position of the previous trick. i.e. You can just place the kendama into position. You don't have to do the previous move, but you can if you want to. But if so remember to...
- Hold the start and finish positions of the combo still for a couple of seconds please.
- You must wait to have your attempt verified by the previous setter before setting the next step.
- Use any competition-sized kendama.
- You cannot reply to your own trick.
- You must wait to re-enter until 5 other people have done a combo after you set one.
- Your trick set may end on an active ballance (i.e Candle Balance) but you can use an active ballance in a transition of a trick/set
Video Rules (To help for a nicer compilation video)
- Make sure you have adequate lighting (http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,44.msg11118.html#msg11118). Please film in daylight if possible. Clips usually look very poor in artificial light.
- Please film in Landscape, not Portrait, not Square.

 Next trick:
164. [from sara grip base cup] > Faster than fasthand aeroplane (quite clear, right? ;))

Here's what I mean:
1. Release the ken, so it falls straight to the ground, spike first, no turning. No throwing up, just a release.
2. Grab the tama and position in below the falling ken and catch the "aeroplane".

Post by: John on 21 March, 2017, 18:47:11
Excellent! Ok, something I've been thinking about.

165. UFO 1.5 turn palm trap - rotate to lighthouse

So basically from the end position, do a UFO for 1.5 turns, and then palm trap it to the tama. So it should end up in a horizontal lighthouse shape, with the spike against your left palm (use a dull spike and trap softly)

Then just rotate it upwards to a lighthouse start. Is it clear?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 21 March, 2017, 18:56:03
Strictly that's two static positions. But I guess if there's no pause, its good. I'll give it a shot tomorrow, if it hasn't been done by then.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: Dimensions on 21 March, 2017, 19:50:56
To be 1 movement, it must be an 'insta' (or similar), if that's what your going for?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: John on 21 March, 2017, 20:55:47
Yes, the way I imagined it is as soon as it's in the trap, it becomes "locked" by your hands which can then immediately do a 90 degree turn clockwise (for righties) to lighthouse. It should be a fairly fluid motion and leads to an interesting starting position next time.
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: The Void on 21 March, 2017, 21:11:53
So... maintain the trap during the upwards rotation?
Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: John on 21 March, 2017, 21:17:34
Yep, so your locked hands basically do a 90 degree turn. Like you're holding the steering wheel at 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock, and have to do a hard right turn to 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock.

The movement ends with one hand on top of the spike and the other hand holding the tama under the lighthouse.

Post by: The Void on 22 March, 2017, 19:00:50
@John So, it went like this:
Go outside, film trick. Come in, check clip, realise I'd lifted my hand off the trap. Go back out, it's raining, come back in. Into kitchen, film clip, this happened...


I think you should fail me for getting distracted right at the end. But I thought I'd share 'cos it made me laugh, at least.

Title: Re: Video Challenge: Endless Combo (everybody can enter)
Post by: John on 22 March, 2017, 21:41:43
@The Void Absolutely nothing to get away with! The whole trick was executed completely cleanly and controlled, as Jakub said, each element was done just right and you held the lighthouse despite modern technology throwing you a curveball... and I'm pretty sure that if the phone didn't ring, you would have been able to keep your hand on top of the trap for another 2 seconds! (You can owe me a 2 second handtrap if you want, and I'll pick it up at Leicester. :D)

It's definitely a pass, and amused me to boot.

reverse swing to fast hand spike.

so swing the ken on the string in the opposite direction to the previous trick (as many swings as you want)
Throw the ken up as if to do a stunt plane, but instead do a fast hand catch to normal ken grip.

Let me know if you want me to film it! Good luck!

@shalafi Is that
Reverse Whirwind + Reverse Earth Turn
Or
Whirlwind + Reverse Earth Turn
?

Actually none of those: Reverse Whirlwind + Earth turn (can be reverse or not, either one is good)

So, basically it's a regular inward whirlwind, right? (Oh, the consistency of naming kendama tricks... :D)

Yes, but feel free to do it with a reverse earth turn for the fun, now that you are back into the pool

RULES
Anyone can enter. Just join this forum!
Trick Rules
- You should start the new transition from the finish position of the previous trick. i.e. You can just place the kendama into position. You don't have to do the previous move, but you can if you want to. But if so remember to...
- Hold the start and finish positions of the combo still for a couple of seconds please.
- You must wait to have your attempt verified by the previous setter before setting the next step.
- Use any competition-sized kendama. (16cm ken, 60mm ball)
- You cannot reply to your own trick.
- You must wait to re-enter until 5 other people have done a combo after you set one.
- Your trick set may end on an active ballance (i.e Candle Balance) but you can use an active ballance in a transition of a trick/set
Video Rules (To help for a nicer compilation video)
- Make sure you have adequate lighting (http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,44.msg11118.html#msg11118). Please film in daylight if possible. Clips usually look very poor in artificial light.
- Please film in Landscape, not Portrait, not Square.

NEXT: Trade to Lighthouse - throw the whole thing straight up so that the tama stays on the spike. Whilst in the air, grab the tama and take it off the spike and place it under the ken, catching the lighthouse. You need to grab the tama in a way that the hole ends up facing upwards in the lighthouse, i.e. catch in the top grip.

Yeah, I know.. I was thinking about whirlwind to bird as my succession trick, but then thought it might be too technical and didn't want to halt the fun. And then @John killed it :D But maybe @Dimensions  or @The Void could do it? I'll try, but I cannot enter this round, anyhow

@shalafi It's tricky but definitely possible! I was playing around with a few lighthouse trades a couple of weeks ago, and managed lighthouse -> bird, lighthouse -> nightingale and almost got lighthouse -> handlestall (wobbled off). This was next on my list :) (and I fully intend to land it too, see if someone can beat me first!)

Trick Rules
- You should start the new transition from the finish position of the previous trick. i.e. You can just place the kendama into position. You don't have to do the previous move, but you can if you want to. But if so remember to...
- Hold the start and finish positions of the combo still for a couple of seconds please.
- You must wait to have your attempt verified by the previous setter before setting the next step.
- Use any competition-sized kendama. (16cm ken, 60mm ball)
- You cannot reply to your own trick.
- You must wait to re-enter until 5 other people have done a combo after you set one.
- Your trick set may end on an active ballance (i.e Candle Balance) but you can use an active ballance in a transition of a trick/set
Video Rules (To help for a nicer compilation video)
- Make sure you have adequate lighting (http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,44.msg11118.html#msg11118). Please film in daylight if possible. Clips usually look very poor in artificial light.
- Please film in Landscape, not Portrait, not Square.

There is a prize of a Trojka 3 kendama for one random participant between tricks 151-175.
Currently in the draw: KenSan Jnr, The Void, the milky oolong, KenSan, s070s, Dimensions, Jakub Z, Ben Pycroft, fiddletriks, shalafi, John, Cliffdama, Matt Goody, kendamatty.

To Lighthouse. Which again is kind of a 1 turn lighthouse due to the original starting grip...

I'm afraid we already had that, @Woodsy , as number 13.
13. Stab -> Fast Hand Lighthouse (SeanW)
Could you pick something else please?
(Full list is at the start of the thread http://kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=1022.0 . Anything that starts..
Stab > .....
or
[loaded sara/pen grip] > ....
can't be repeated. Sorry.

@Woodsy so, none of these:

13. Stab -> Fast Hand Lighthouse*
77. [from Sara grip Spike] > Whirlwind Earth Turn
101. [from Loaded Sara grip] > Juggle to Stab
102. [from Loaded Sara grip] > Arm - Knee Bounce to Base Cup
104. [from Loaded Sara grip] > (Single Handed) Fork Catch
133. [From Loaded Sara Grip] > Horizontal Loaded Drill
134. [From Loaded Sara Grip] > Earth Turn to Penguin Spike
*It was a 1-Turn
