Title: Kendama Consistency Challenge #13 - "BIG Walk"
Post by: Kenski Di on 29 May, 2012, 03:36:38
Hello everyone,


Here you are. Consistency ladder #13!



This ladder consists of 10 tricks, arranged in 4 combos, each starting with a different spacwalk.


1.  (i) Spacewalk, (ii) Ken Flip

2. (iii) Spacewalk One-turn Aeroplane, (iv) U.F.O.

3. (v) Spacewalk One-turn Lighthouse, (vi) Lighthouse Flip, (vii) Swap-In

4.(viii) Spacewalk One-turn Lunarlander, (ix) Lunarlander Flip, (x) Swap-In



Remember, all tricks must be submitted in that order, clean, and without error.



Here is an edit so you can see the tricks for yourself. If you can, try to land the lunarlanders cleaner than I did.

GOOD LUCK

When you put the video up please can you type the trick list below. It's a bit easier for reference and means we don't all have to transcribe the video as it plays.
I have Saturday afternoon wide open so I'm in this time!
Thanks!

OK I've had a crack at this whilst watching the queen ride a pretty ridiculous boat.

1. Consistent
2. 50% success rate
3. 2% success rate
4. 0% success

Seriously spacewalk lunar is an extremely difficult trick which you seem to have a talent for making look easy and a lunar somersault I've only managed a handful of times. Any tips?

These definitely aren't tricks I practice but I appreciate the challenge.

nice ladder...i've given it a shot and what would seem pretty funny but the hardest for me is the lunar to swap in...never EVER done it before...not my kind of exit :)

Oase, I've seen your edits. This trick must be possible for you.  :)

Don't pay too much attention to this:
The key to the spacewalks, particularly lunar, is having a feel for how it swings. What I mean is that it is possible to feel the way the ken is hanging/spinning as soon as you catch the tama. If you can get a feel for that, than you can feel how to tug it into a perfect spin. If you can do that than the setup isn't as important; you can tug it into a perfectly lined-up spin even if it's off by several degrees, just by feeling it, and knowing exactly which angle will have what effect.

My back has been bringing me nothing but pain for the last two days - slept on it real funny the other night and now it hurts to move around too much. Have tried this ladder out a few times despite this, and the damn lunar switch in got me at least once or twice. Maybe I'll try again later tonight after I get some study time in...

Well unfortunately after completing 13 I lost my camera while tubing down some white water.  :'(
I'm working on getting together with a friend who will be able to film the ladder for me. I hope everybody can bear with me I appreciate the patience!

I am also happy to say that the prize will be sponsored by KendamaUSA ! I'll start the thread for 14 as soon as I have the ladder completed :)

Cool. Just so you know, it's not obligatory to post a video of yourself doing the ladder first. You can just post a list (with explanations of tricks if necessary). But if you want to post a vid, that's fine too of course. Indeed, if there are some less-well-known tricks on it, it may be helpful for people to understand what they have to do.
