Would it be possible to make a quick tutorial on it? I can't imagine in. Plus I find it earlier to learn if I see it. It's easier to grasp haha. Sounds cool though. I learnt eifell tower a couple days ago. It's such a simple trick but also visually pleasing.

Sound like some sort of pinwheeling? Sorry, prob need a video demo or link.

Today I passed 6th Dan practice. 2/7 November.
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!

I'll try to make a short demo video tomorrow, hopefully with natural light (but not hoping much, weather is really shitty lately)

Well done Ben, and shalafi.

Damp, dark and dreary today. Fail. Indoor practice in artificial light.

Inspired by KendAlex's "Wings ans Rings", I landed "Wingwalker > Backhand Wingwalker > Spike", and "Wingwalker Somersault"  :) I didn't think I could get these tricks and would'nt have tried them without Alex's edit. Community makes everyone better !

Thanks, Void ! You inspired me too with some of your edits, "Still Seeking Six" for example, that made me try and land Fast Hand Drill and Banking variations !

landed the current challenge of the endless combo. Of course it's not on tape. We usually don't film during our weekly meeting :(
