    Got my first Lions paw to spike today.. these seem like they should be easy for me but balancing on top of my hand is hard for me!

    Oh ok so a downward earthturn! That’s how you’ll find it labeled in most tutorials ;)

    My first lunars ... at least a dozen outward and inward lunars, a few to spike!

    I have to say that the new Luzumaki Eva's with the boost shape from Sweets are a honed lunar balanced MACHINE... I can hit them repeatedly on this ken and other kens are wayyy more difficult.
