Tricks / Re: The ever popular "Today I..." thread

Ah, maybe. Of course, Swirl Aeroplane was the original "kendama integral".

Just a few Whirlwind Earth Turns in the garden for me today. I almost got three in a row. The sun is bright today, but its still mostly shadow, and cold in the garden. C'mon spring!

Hi @Lucytfc , Welcome to the forum!
That seems like a perfectly reasonable way to ask a question, and in the right place too. :-)

The trick starts with...
Spacewalk Trapeze...
(Which is different to "Spacewalk > Trapeze", since "Spacewalk" on its own includes the Aeroplane catch.)
(Oh, and while I'm at it "Trapeze" is different to "Trapeze Acrobats", even though some people lazily abbreviate the latter to the former. But that's another story!)
...and then you do some sort of string transfer, which I can't quite see, or work out. Pretty neat, since it means that the cradle stays in place during the....
...oh, wait, I've just worked out what you're doing!
You're dropping the string loop over the top of the ball, across the hole, right? Then you do a Half Tumble, and a Stab > Fast Hand Grip Change.

There is a trick created by Mr Maruishi, former head of the JKA, (which I named as Triangle Drop in my book Knees), which ends with the ball in the same string cradle that you Tumble into. But your entire trick is a combo incorporating the Triangle Cradle. I like it!

So the elements of your combo are...
Spacewalk Trapeze > Loop Transfer > Half Tumble Triangle Cradle > Stab Fasthands
If you want to give a name to the whole combo, then feel free.

Oh, and I love your happy laugh at the end of the trick, too.
Cheers!

That's a fantastic explanation of what i've did there! I forgot to mention that i was looking for the name for the last trick, the one you've calle Half Tumble Triangle Cradle! But this was way more satisfying :)

I was just curios cause I like drawing some stuff and the name helps me a lot!

Glad i can share some joy on my clips! Thanks a lot for the response :D
Cheers!

Hello there, I hope this is the right way to ask a question, it's been a very long time since i used a forum ah ah

These days i've been seeing a trick a lot and I'd like to know if there's a creator and what's the name of the trick.

I've done it some time ago while fooling around, here's a variation to it cause i can't find the first one i've posted on my profile.
