Learned this little number, thought this was Sisyphus, typed the Japanese into Youtube and found that it's Secret Grip > Base Cup and back. So why's the trick called 'Contact Slip' in a literal translation? Anyway, that's about all the kendama I got to play today:

Kendama Berlin
German Kendama Open 2014: 1st Place Speed Trick, 2nd Place Knockout
German Kendama Championships 2015: 3rd Place Speed Trick
KEN FEST Hannover, 2016: 3rd Place KEN Battle
KENDAMA CLASH Berlin 2016: 1st Place Intermediate

Never been very good in stall tricks but in the last couple days I managed to get:

- Normal grip  slip grip special>small bird> earth turn spike
- Secret grip > slip grip special > clifftop  (now just to catch that spike...)

That Croix is a slip grip magnet for some reason.
Kendama Belgium!

Today I got my 2015 JKA membership card, to match my BKA one.

@shalafi when you say 'trap', thats like when you hold the trick in place with the opposite hand right? or am i thinking of something else?

Yes PikWik, it is like that. I did all the traps with the index finger of the other hand. Outlink had a trick which was a trap combo.

Good day at the Outdoors festival today, jamming with a bunch of clicking dudes. Fresh inspiration and got some new tricks in the brain.

Great afternoon in the park with this crew. I hit my first Around The Galaxy, and Reverse Whirlwind Earth Turn (twice), plus some of my new tricks from yesterday's brain. Which are no doubt hitting IG already.
