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. 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]kendamatty[/user], [user]SamB[/user], [user]mreasyguy[/user], [user]DamaLife24[/user] & [user]Dimensions[/user] must sit out round 85.

Hehe, thanks; the way I saw it, [user]Void[/user], you've been working extra hard for the forum recently, there was no way I couldn't heed the call to arms. I'll re-film this with the proper camera if it will help the final video, just say the word.

That would be nice if you get the chance. But your video has been accepted, so not obligatory!

Question: For monkey chair, do we have to swing in or is the trick more like a throw, grip switch, catch?

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 รก la Trapeze Acrobats, if that's what you mean. I have faith that you can nail it though!

I see. I started playing around with this trick, but I wasn't sure how you wanted it.

I'll try a bit more later on today.

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....

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!
