    The biggest part of late slings is how you catch the juggle(or whatever). You want to "catch" the ken where your fingers are already slinging under the Sarado as the ken comes to your fingers. It's a very difficult thing to do but the most important thing to think about is to already be "slinging" as the ken comes around. And practice. That helps too

    Use a thin Ken or wide sarado it will make things a lot easier and also like Blake said you need to be in a position to sling when you touch the Ken. I also learned from that tutorial

    Late sling isn't a trick you can learn in a matter of a day. It takes weeks to get it clean and consistent.
