    Just landed Bonz's KWC2019 Level 11 trick. 15 minutes, and I would've gotten it sooner if not for the nod to handlestall.

    Swing up nightingale one turn over the valley to bird one turn in.

    Also got Around slip on stick last night and started work on around stalls but the base cup to handle stall I’m struggling with. Maybe I should practice handle stalls in general

    Jeez you guys are all pros lol

    Anyways I was really hyped that I landed swing mars and swing earth turn today. I'm on my way to swing UFO haha

    If it wasnt for the legend supernog I wouldn't have even thought of any of these tricks.

    Is swing earthturn like swing spike? And I can’t wrap my head around swing mars either. I’ve done mars turns before but not sure how to swing into that motion myself..!

    Yeah swing earth turn is like a swing spike that u just let keep spinning. For swing Mars it's really not hard but getting it consistent can be. I start by holding the tama in one hand like swing spike then right when I let go I pull the Ken to the side but sort of in the start of a circle formation and keep the circle formation going once it gets momentum. Then depending on your string length yank the Ken with your wrist and it gets the ball turning. The key is to see the tama hole after it passes the first time then you can track the hole and know when it's coming the second time. You'll get it, I've seen other tricks you're able to do on this thread and I'm impressed haha.

    Inward lunar flip, on my lunch break, two minutes ago. In the middle of Tokyo, but no one to share the hype with, lol.
    Tried it for the first time last night, so pretty surprised I got it within 10 mins.

    Pull up bird, earth turn over the valley to nightingale, inward earth turn back to bird, fall in.
    Pretty happy with it, since I just did my first earth turn over the valley earlier today. Spent way too much time trying it, not realising that I needed to reverse the earth turn from nightingale to make it easier to land back in bird.
