Title: KCC 26
Post by: JeffreyItaliaander on 04 March, 2014, 10:32:11
End of this week I will post the Kendama Consistency Challenge #26!

It will be a list of tricks that I love doing... Do NOT expect juggles...I do not enjoy these :P
The tricks will probably be chained in a chosen order. Just because that looks cooler...

I'm sorry for not posting earlier. I have been so busy, now is the first few days in a row where I can put on my Dragon Wingsuit and chill on my Sofa for the whole day...

See ya in a few days!

Ciaooo

Hello everyone,

To start off, I am so sorry for the big delay. I have been so busy, unbelievable. And still busy, but I can't keep you guys waiting anymore.

The Prize:
- 5-cup Krom-Kendama in the color of blue
- Stickers
- The honor to make the next KCC

The competition is a trick list of 10 tricks which have to be completed in order without any mistakes or string-touch on a Normal-sized Kendama. No Yo-yo's guys.....

1. Lighthouse --> Candle
2. Swing in --> (Earth Turn to) Bird --> (Earth Turn to) Spike  <---(Mod Edit: changed the wording)
3. Reverse swing in --> Reverse Earthturn
4. Lightningdrop
5. Big Cup --> Double orbit (Choose your own direction)
6. Candle --> Stabbing heaven (Stab spike)
7. Around Europe in Sara-grip
8. Spacewalk handroll --> In
9. Pull-up spike - Horizontal Flying top
10. Center cup --> Airplane


That is it. I hope it's all clear, if not, ask down here, and I or someone else will of course help.
Again, I am sorry for the delay. Hope to be more available on this forum in the future.

Thanks,

Jeffrey Italiaander

First question, what is a lightning drop?

Second question, when you say the tricks must be completed in order without touching the string, does that mean for #8-9 I need to go from holding the ken with the tama on the spike directly to a pull up spike, or do I take the tama off, then do a pull up spike?

Third question, do you mean base cup when you say center cup?

Cheers!

Lightning Drop is a Spacewalk, but with the kendama rotating twice in the air, instead of once.
I think the "no string touches" is referring to during each trick. I think it's safe to assume you can do a normal "reset" between each numbered trick. (Unless Jeffrey says otherwise.)
Yes, Base Cup = Centre Cup.

Good luck everyone!

I have a question:
Swing in --> Swing out to Bird --> Swing in
Are the swings like all the way at the end of the string like, swing to spike, throw the ball towards me then swing all the way forwards at the end of the string to bird, then the same to spike?
not just swing to spike throw off the spike to bird then spike it?

Also horizontal flying top and candle stab are such great satisfying tricks!

@Mrjuggles
What @BKA says! :D

@Sam
Omyyy haha what a question for a non-englishman....
Just do swing-in, 360 to bird, 360 in... Get it? Not too difficult :P

And get to it, Jake Fisher is also on it..... GO!

:P

Post by: BKA on 21 March, 2014, 14:19:21
Sam's confusion is understandable, given the use of "swing" 3 times. I think we might call that

2. Swing in --> (Earth Turn to) Bird --> (Earth Turn to) Spike

But yes, that's easier than a "full swing" version.

Post by: JeffreyItaliaander on 21 March, 2014, 14:51:19
Oh I now understand haha! That would be sick though! I'm gonna write Sam's one down haha!

Ha, this is exactly what I thought he meant!

Ah OK that's way easier! I almost had the full swing one down though!

I couldn't find a very clear video of Around Europe, just want to make sure I'm doing it right.

Is it Big Cup, Spike, Small Cup, Spike, Base Cup, Spike?
Title: Re: KCC 26
Post by: Dimensions on 21 March, 2014, 16:15:31
Typically it should start with little cup
Title: Re: KCC 26
Post by: JeffreyItaliaander on 21 March, 2014, 16:41:23
What @Dimensions says, except for that it's okay to start with Big Cup. Just know that awesome people start with Small Cup :p

- Use a standard, competition-sized kendama, unless otherwise stated.
- Perform all tricks, in order, as specified, in a single run, with no misses, unless otherwise stated.
- Stay in shot the whole time.
- The first forum member to post a video of themselves completing the challenge in the relevant thread is the winner. (Pending approval by the Setter).

Some IG demos by me:

7-10 - http://instagram.com/p/l-auWwNa4d/ (http://instagram.com/p/l-auWwNa4d/)

I still haven't made it past 4! >:( - good luck to everyone still going, this one gets in to your head!

Hey Rob,
Well done already! Number 4 is a biatch I know haha!
If you ever make it to number 10, which I hope you will, you will have to do the Center Cup in Normal "Ken'' grip. On your Instagram-video you were holding it "Inverted". Ken Grip isn't harder, just a complete other movement which you have to get used to.

My goal with this list was to have 10 tricks that aren't the hardest, but a little bit odd, so you guys have a whole new arsenal of tricks after completing this one :)

Lateeerrr,

Jeffrey

I spent 15 minutes on this tonight, and couldn't get past #3. Damn string! :)
I think it's a good list though. It may have to wait until after my trip before I revisit it though. If it's still alive by then, that is....

Thanks Milky Oolong :D


After 1 week no one has cracked my puzzle yet. How are you all doing??
Title: Re: KCC 26
Post by: Dimensions on 28 March, 2014, 22:03:02
Still nothing past 3  :'( I think this is one those challenges where if you allow a miss someone will get it quickly! So don't consider it yet!
But bl***y hell it hard, I think if I get past 6 I've cracked it but maybe not so sure now I know the base > aeroplane has to be in standard ken grip

But this challenge is very fun and interesting!

-Rob

P.S what is the name for this KCC? All of the other challenges has had one
