Kung Fu inspired slinging style
Feb 13th, 2020 at 8:21pm
 
Well... RS gave us turkey style.† Now itís my turn to invent a throwing style Grin
This is inspired by a meteor hammer move. I obviously donít know kung fu, and I definitely need more practice with this style of throwing.
With practice, it could be an alternative to a compound sling (???) ... maybe.

Brilliant man!† I love it!†Cheesy

What that actually reminds me of is a catapult.† How the arm hits the crossbar and the projectile is released.† Definitely looks like Kung Fu Catapult style to me. Wink

Thanks!† You need a really long sling to make it work. Iíd like to learn how to do the same move with an elbow instead of a knee.

Hereís the inspiration at about 17:30 in the video:

I canít say that it is a style Iíll get proficient in but I can imagine a fictional master slinger uses this technique for close quarters contact and slinging at the same time. He probably could choke another opponent with the release cord and closeline a fourth.  Grin

It would make for a pretty awesome action scene if you replaced the awkward engineer with an actual martial artist Smiley

Thanks everyone!
Quick update... I figured out the basic motions for launching off the elbow. The sling shoots behind you off the elbow and forward off the knee, so you have a quick option to throw in either direction. With the elbow, I had a lot of trouble with the release cord tangling around the ball, so I may have to switch to a ring sling for this style of throw.

lol - well I can't argue it's a new 'style'.

Not sure it has any practical use though whistle

@CA... thereís a reason I compared it to Turkey Style in my initial introduction Grin
Just like Turkey, it has plenty of entertainment value.

I think if I can get past the tangled release cord issues, it might serve the same purpose as a compound sling... lighter ammo at higher velocities. And just like a compound sling, timing is not easy.

I will have to stand up for RS here, I still think think the Turkey Throw has promise. I need more practice with it but it's not entirely useless Cheesy

You donít kick it at all. The cord wraps around the knee, then it flies off in one direction when you straighten your knee.† My foot never touched the sling.

The changing radius of the swing around the knee behaves a lot like a compound sling does... particularly the kind with the sliding counterweight.
