Jumping Stick aka J-Stick Kendama TrickThis trick is called Jumping Stick, more commonly referred to as J-Stick. It looks like this. Just like that.
The most common way to get into this trick is to do an Airplane, so if you haven’t learned that rick go check out our video on how to do an Airplane. Once you’re in this trick here, you’re holding the tama and the ken should be coming out of the top, you want the small cup facing your body.
What you’re going to do, you’re going to use your knees to throw the ken into the air and you’re going to flick your wrist to cause the ken to rotate 360 degrees so the spike can land right back into the hole. You’ll find the more you use your knees the higher you can throw the ken. The harder you flick your wrist the faster the ken will rotate, or you can give it just a slight flick to rotate it slower. You’ll find you can do it fast or you can do the rotation slow.
Although you can do this trick rotating the ken fast or slow, it is recommended that you try to find a good moderate speed to first start with that it is just more comfortable. The best tip that you have with this trick is to watch the spike because that’s the most important thing, that’s where you are aiming to catch. Depending on how fast or slow the ken is rotating you’ll find you need to catch the spike either high or bend down and catch it low. Again, rotate it around catch it just like that. That is really the whole trick.
That is Jumping Stick.
