[user]DamaLife24[/user], [user]The Void[/user], [user]Dimensions[/user], [user]Kev[/user], [user]kendamatty[/user], [user]SamB[/user] & [user]mreasyguy[/user] are now entered into the prize draw for rounds 76-100 (News of prizes to follow soon.)

Next trick is:
83. [from Stilts] > Juggle to Base Cup
i. Start the spin by doing a Somersault,
ii. throw up tama (during the Somersault),
iii. catch ken in hand, and then
iv. catch the tama 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. 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]Dimensions[/user], [user]Kev[/user], [user]kendamatty[/user], [user]SamB[/user] & [user]mreasyguy[/user] must sit out round 83.
Good luck everyone!

Talk is cheap indeed, and the trick is harder than it seems. I've been close to land it anyway.

I love juggles too :) No worries about "stealing" that is a big part of this game.

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....

[user]DamaLife24[/user], [user]The Void[/user], [user]Dimensions[/user], [user]Kev[/user], [user]kendamatty[/user], [user]SamB[/user] & [user]mreasyguy[/user] are now entered into the prize draw for rounds 76-100 (News of prizes to follow soon.)

Well I wasn't too sure on your intention so I recorded:
Fast hand orbit (ken grip) spike
Fast hand orbit (Sara grip) spike
And (fast hand) juggle to spike
Plus a bonus trick
Endless Combo 84 - juggling videos hosted @ Juggling.tv

I hope one is ok

Nice final trick Rob!
If you don't want to BUY MY BOOKS 😉, then why not ask your local library to order them in, and read them for free? That would help too. Cheers!

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...]

Here is Akimoto-San performing this trick (without the transition)


Good luck!
-Rob

Sorry, not allowed. Must go from one static position to another. After 1), you have reached another static position.
Please choose something else.
