つばめ返し -“Tsubame Kaeshi”
Speed and dexterity are key with this trick. Start with the ball hanging down and grip the Ken. Flick the ball up and catch it in the big cup. From here, flick the ball into the air and then orbit the Kendama around the ball while it is still in the air (you’ll need to move the Kendama around then above the ball as soon as you have flicked it, then keep moving the Kendama around the ball until you are underneath it again). Catch the ball in the big cup.
If you are looking to use this trick as part of a combo, watch out the string doesn’t get caught up during the orbit!
