    So, what is Speed Trick B, you ask?

    Well, it's a series of ten tricks, a speed ladder designed to test your proficiency and consistency in all the basic tricks you've learned up till now.
    These ten tricks (and their Japanese names) are :

    1. Candlestick (前ふりろうそく : mae furi rōusoku)
      • Swing in to complete the trick.
    2. Around the Prefecture (県一周 : ken-isshū)
      • (Base cup, spike)
    3. Around Japan x2 (日本一周 : nihon-isshū)
      • After spiking the first time, continue into second time without reset or touching the ball.
    4. Around the World x2 (世界一周 : sekai-isshū)
      • After spiking the first time, continue into second time without reset or touching the ball.
    5. Around Europe (ヨーロッパ一周 : yoroppa-isshū)
      • It is possible to start with big cup, but the JKA prefers small cup first.
    6. Earth Turn (地球まわし : chikyū mawashi)
      • (Swing-in spike, earth turn.)
    7. Bird, in (うぐいす~けん : uguisu ~ ken)
      • (Begin from pull-up Bird.)
      • It is not required to stay still after this trick.
      • After the tama hole has contacted the edge/rim of the big cup correctly, spike it right away.
    8. Jumping Stick (はねけん : haneken)
      • (Begin from airplane.)
    9. 1-turn Airplane (一回転飛行機 : ikkaiten hikōki)
    10. Falling in (さか落とし : sa ka otoshi)
      • (Begin from pull-up Lighthouse.)
      • If the Lighthouse is in proper contact with the tama, it is not required to stay still for this trick.
    (For Speed Trick B, all tricks require a tama/ken reset.)






    Here's a video example (thanks to the JKA!) :

    What else do i need to know about Speed Trick B?

    1. Only JKA approved completes are allowed (i mean, they did make this, d'oh).
    2. Try it slowly first.
    3. Focus on completing each trick, without flaw.
    4. Then go faster.
    5. Repeat #3 and #4.
    6. Profit ??

    FYI Speed Trick B (Timed Kyogi B) is a JKA thing. IIRC it's used not only in some Dan level tests but also as a tie breaker in competitions.

    The Japanese trick names are:
    1.Maefuri-rousoku
    2.Ken-isshu
    3.Nihon-isshu (2times)
    4.Sekai-isshu (2times)
    5.Yoroppa-isshu
    6.Chikyu-mawasi
    7.Uguisu-ken
    8.Haneken
    9.Ikkaiten-hikoki
    10.Sakaotoshi

    Anyone knows who invented STB?
    Whoever this person is, the thought going into this was immaculate.

    A lot of directional changes and grip switches designed to trip the unprepared, it’s really an art form that takes a very high level of consistency and practice to get within 45s.

    Even more so when you have the young Japanese players who break the 30s barrier with less difficulty.

    Do you have to reset between each trick?

    I was wondering the same thing. According to the video posted, the resets happened when moving from one trick to a different trick. The doubles were done without a reset (around Japan & world).

    All tricks, with exception to the second Around Japan and second Around the World requires a reset.

    Can I go from the set of Around Japans to the set of Around the Worlds without resetting or do I have to do each set separately?

    You need to reset between the Japans and Worlds as they are two separate tricks.

    Same here! This a great challenge for everyone. If you don't know the trick, it's a great opportunity to learn the core tricks used as a jump off to more advanced tricks. If you already have those tricks in the bag, then it's just time on your side.

    For reals though, I am not a very good player. I can do some cool flow stuff but as for consistency, I am sorely lacking. I can hardly hit all of this tricks in a row within twenty tries (that one turn airplane gets me), but by practicing this I can already feel myself getting better at traditional style play. It is very interesting how American freestyle differs so greatly from original style play.

    It's even crazier because it's all done on what is essentially a near fresh tk16 in order for it to officially count.

    Let’s try and add to the challenge by using a JKA certified dama!

    In JKA testing 3 Dan has to do it within 120 seconds; 4 Dan 60 seconds; 5 Dan 45 seconds.

    Gives me good reason to pull that Ozora off my rack and give these other beast a rest from day-to-day beatings.
    This, in turn, will open up a new can of worms on wanting to acquire more JKA's to the current arsenal…:)

    Is it a dq if you miss a trick or does the clock just keep ticking?

    You could probably afford 1 maybe 2 misses on a sub 45 second run, if your quick!
