I see it done often but have no idea what it is called. I describe it as Inward-Mini suicide. As the name suggests its mini suicide starting with tama grip, and thrown so that the ken travels in between your hand and your body.

Can anyone clarify for my please?

Sounds right, although I'm not sure if I'm missing some elements of the trick you're referring to. If it is only... Start from ball grip, with ken hanging, swing the ken up and in towards you, then release the ball and catch the ken, then yes.
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!

Perfect! Thanks Void. Usually I would just do an aeroplane catch but I've recently managed to do fast hand spikes.

My goal now is to fast hand whirlwind spike ;)

Is there a name for scoop-style tricks where the tama is carried using centrifugal force alone (for example, tama starting in base cup, taken in a sweeping circle across the body, ending in same position only now 'penguin' style)? Theoretically the same as making a glass tumbler do a flip without the water coming out, only in kendama terms.

Any ideas?

遠心力/Enshinryoku/Centrifugal force is the Japanese name for the Big Cup version[1]. (Perhaps "Centrifuge" would work as a quicker-to-say name.)

Hello, welcome to the forum.
Your trick is:
Turntable>Whirlwind>Turntable>Spike.

Nice combination!

Have accidentally just started doing a rather odd Big Cup (sara grip?) Swap trick where the ken is caught á la Rotor Blade/UFO, though it is only rotating 180 degrees. I uploaded a youtube video, but my webcam is so terrible I have to set it at the lowest resolution just to be able to demonstrate what I mean. Anyone any ideas what you would call it?

Since you are finishing with an Aeroplane catch, and since your hand switched from Ken to Ball, we'd go for
Fast Hand Aeroplane.
Or perhaps
Big Cup>Fast Hand Aeroplane or Big Cup>Aeroplane.
Either of those last two would probably get the message across to someone who wanted to copy what you'd done without having seen it.

Nicely done, btw. :) Now.... go and work out how you can do the same trick frontstyle! (Straight in front of you instead of sideways to your body.)

Thanks for the help!

I've been messing around with it for some time and there's something satisfying about it, especially when it's caught exactly horizontally. If I had a better way of recording it I'd show some variations, i.e. with Stopover, has a real flow it it, but the quality is too bad. For me it's an Oolongated Rotor, but I doubt the BKA will go for that  ;)

As for the frontal, that's a good idea, am giving it a go right now.

Ooh I've been trying something similar - Around the aeroplane - Big cup -> aeroplane -> Small cup Aeroplane -> Base cup -> Aeroplane
It's trickier than I thought it would be.
BKO 2011 - 2nd, SRC 2011 - 2nd,  SRC 2012 - 2nd, EJC 2012 (unicorns) - 2nd, SRC 2013 - 2nd, BKO 2013 - 3rd - Always the bridesmaid...

Don't know if there is a name for it.

I'm holding my ken upside down at the base cup. Pull de ball up. Land it on the side of the small cup and against the ken. Next i trow it up the base cup and then spike. Did it twice in a row. I like it! If it's not clear i try to post a video of it :)

Sounds like Bat>Base Cup>(Backhand?) Spike. Don't think there's a specific name for that combo.

The trick he does from 1:25 - 1:28, are those also called spacewalks or is there another name for it. I've always been confused about it.
