This is my attempt to get into the more modern counterweight stuff that I see from players like Miggy, Tyler, Jon Rob, etc. I really hope it’s not just one of their moves, but I suppose that’s entirely possible. In any event, it’s new to me and I came to it honestly. That said…it’s a sidestyle reversal that starts like a Yuuki Slack….I’m not exactly diving deep into the creative well here.
Song is “百錬ノ鐵” by 鐵槌. I wish I knew what that meant in English.
That first little loop thrown straight from a 1.5 mount is from my buddy Rodrigo Yokota, a.k.a. “Whip”. The rest is just me looking for ways to make things unnecessarily difficult.
Song is “Plastic Astronaut” by Strikeforce Diablo. They appear courtesy of No Idea Records.

Confession: I’m really lousy at learning tricks by watching videos. I’m an “in person” learner. So when Spencer Berry dropped “Breath” on all of us, I was crushed…I wasn’t going to see the kid for a while and it was such a beautiful trick. So I set about trying to figure it out from the video, and ended up with this. I knew it wasn’t all of it, but I thought I at least had the beginning.
Caught up with Spencer at the next BAC and said “Hey, I’m stuck on the first part of Breath, can you help?” Showed him this and he said “Whoa! What the hell was that?”
“The first part of Breath?”
“HA HA HA HA HA HA HA no.”
I never did learn Breath. But I still love this trick.
