Laced, Landed, so fire, banger
The first time I heard the word 'crint' being tossed around on instagram got me curious. Idk if people think Bonz made it up but found it on urban dictionary.
A less offensive/alternate form of the Australian usage of the word cunt.
A. A complete fool/arsehole. or
B. A good friend. or
C. A vagina.
lol! I don't think thats the definition he's going for
For me I just use "laced" and "banger" other lingo is just too cringey :/
Idk, it is Bonz. Who knows what he's thinking.
Tip wet is definitely used a lot. Probably more than it should be haha
Soft is not something that I think Wyatt has to deal with. Remember he has his own sticker named "Never soft?" Contrary to most famous slayers, Wyatt is almost never, ever called soft. Rolf Ganer on the other hand? Well...
I believe Crint = Current = Flow.
Not if you live in Australia lol
Colin used the term "gooey" to describe to a n00b how they should be holding the kendama softer in their hands haha
It's interesting how a lot of Kendama slang comes from skateboarding/rollerblading lingo, as well as music and the pothead scene, haha! A lot of this are also connected to each other as well!
"Stringer" = String trick, or string + banger
"Flow" = Smooth, non-stop, clean, graceful, and flowy performance with little or no pause in between tricks. Could be fast flow or slow flow
"Dirty" = A stall trick done without the use of the bevel. Also "no-hole." Ex: dirty bird, no-hole stilt, dirty axe. This can also mean an amazing trick or a line that was executed sloppily, but still creative/difficult/awesome to see/attempt.
"Sick/Nasty/Disgusting" = Really good/cool/awesome. One of those reverse psychology slang terms. It can also derive from being in "shock" or that something is so amazing that it makes your head sick because can't absorb how awesome it is.
"Lace" = Noun. A trick or a line one completes/lands. Ex: "Here's a clip of my recent lace."
"Laced" = Verb, past tense. When one completed or landed a trick/line effortlessly or smoothly, it's like second nature and like "lacing up your shoelaces." Ex: "I just laced this trick this morning." I've also heard that this is used to describe a trick/line that was "dirty," as in the other definition of "laced:" contaminated with a substance (usually harmful or toxic) present in small amounts, thus making it "sick/nasty/disgusting."
"Slay/Kill" = See "Lace," "Laced," "Bang Bang," and "Banger."
"FTOD" = First Try or Die. A trick or a line completed in the first attempt. One of my favorites, haha!
"Bang Bang" = An expression exclaimed when someone completely "destroyed," "slayed," or "killed" a trick/line. It's a positive/encouraging expression and reaction to an awesome trick/line that was well-done. Related to "Banger."
"Banger" = Comes from song-writing and rap/hip-hop music. A song that is incredible and amazing, thus, a trick/line that is incredible and amazing. Could also refer to a trick that is very "noisy," a trick with taps, multiple cup use, and insta-flips is noisy to listen to, and can be a banger. Related to "Bang Bang."
"Grind/Sesh/Seshed/Jam" = When one works hard and endlessly on a trick/line. To practice in a session. Ex: "This trick took me an hour to land! It was a total grind!"
"Earthturn if you nasty" = Basically something you say at the end of a trick/line encouraging someone to attempt an Earthturn as a dare. After someone completes a difficult and crazy line, one might find it risky to attempt to Earthturn afterward in fear of missing. When they land it, they're "nasty" or "sick."
"Lofty" = When a trick has a lot of air-time. It often makes the trick look floaty and graceful, in a way.
"Hype/Stoked" = This isn't necessarily a slang term, but it's used a lot in the Kendama community: intense and a large amount of excitement for something.
"Fresh" = This isn't necessarily a slang term, but it's used a lot in the Kendama community: describing something new, original, recently made. Could also mean "cool," "stylish," and "nice." Ex: "We've got some fresh set-ups for the new year!"
"Drop/Dropped" = A product that has released in store or online. A video/photo that has been posted Ex: "Sweets just dropped a new video with the new F3 drop."
"Cop/Copped" = This isn't necessarily a slang term, but it's used a lot in the Kendama community: to purchase or acquire something financially.
"Hand check" = This isn't necessarily a slang term, but it's used a lot in the Kendama community: a hand check is when you present something(s) in your hand, usually a Kendama/set-up.
"Whirlwind check" = This isn't necessarily a slang term, but it's used a lot in the Kendama community: to say Whirlwind check, you are daring someone to stop what he/she is doing to land a Whirlwind on the spot.
"Dub, Trip, Quad, Quint" = These aren't necessarily slang terms, but it's used a lot in the Kendama community. Double, Triple, Quadruple, Quintuple.
"Dope/Dank/Epic/Fire/Lit" = Something cool and high-quality. Amazing, incredible.
"Tech/Techy" = A trick that is "technical," or requires a deft use of one's own great "techniques."
"Hone/Honed" = When someone or a set-up is perfected in performance, as in, someone or a set-up is very tuned with the player/trick or vice-versa.
"Song?" = When you really enjoy a song or music used in the background of a video, that you want to ask the name and artist, instead of simply using music identification apps (such as Shazam or Soundhound) to assist you in finding out the music.
"Lighty" = Lighthouse
"Lune/Loon" = Lunar
"J-Stick" = Jumping stick
"Goon/Goony" = When a trick or someone looks silly and goofy when performing, but the execution is amazing.
"Tacky" = When referring to paints and finishes of tamas (or kens). When something is tacky, it is sticky.
"Grippy" = When referring to paints and finishes of tamas (or kens). When something is grippy, it has a lot of grip.
"Glossy/Icy" = When referring to paints and finishes of tamas (or kens). When something is glossy, it is slick and shiny.
"Spectra/Spec" = When referring to woods and designs of a Kendama, it is a Kendama turned from spectraply wood.
"Natty" = When referring to woods and designs of a Kendama, it is a Kendama that is free of paint, but not necessarily free of finishes, beeswax, etc.
I have a hard time liking "Soft." I hear kids calling each other "Soft" or commenting "Soft" on videos, as if the trick they did wasn't good/cool or it was too easy. It's almost a gateway word for bullying. I know some don't mean it, but by the way these kids are using it, it almost sounds like they're practically saying "you suck." Plus, whenever I think of "Never soft," I don't think of Wyatt Bray. I think of the old video game studio, Neversoft, haha.
(Will most likely add more to this list!)
@Chelsea May Perez thx a lot. It's a very great post. I have learned a lot of thing.
@bonz atron and Zawa used to say "cha soh" a lot in Japan.
Apparently it meant nothing.
@Chelsea May Perez Nice job, great list!
That is funny! I've never thought that before but I probably can't NOT think that now. haha. Neversoft made some good stuff!
"Laced" is usually used when someone lands either a difficult trick or lands a trick that they have been working on. "Clean" usually means that the trick had nice flow and that the ken stayed far away from the player's hands and that the spike did not hit the bevel of the hole on the final spike. Hope this helps.
"Bokujo" is a great word, it means "Matsuzawa"
its a running joke with him. Hes obvioussly not soft, so people joke around with him calling him soft.
i wouldnt say that. You can also say stuff like sesh and dank and honed and stuff. There are certain words that are cringy, but not that many in my opinion
