A whip.. how cool is that!
Did you know the knot goes over 350 meters per second.. bet you want to make one right now do ya ?
- at least 6 Meter of rope (i've used 4 and 8 MM both work fine)
- something to cut the rope
- a stick (any stick)
Step 1: Preperation
Take the rope.
Cut it in three pieces about 1.80Meter to 2.20Meter.
I took some shorter pieces to make it more clear on the pictures.
Step 2: The Knot!
Step 3: Braiding Was Never So Cool!
And then lets start braiding..
For if you dont know how to braid.
Step 4: Almost There
You roll al litlle tape at the point where the braid stops
Then you cut of 2 of the three pieces of rope (i allways let the longest one stay)
Make the end of the braid and the single string as one piece (with the tape)
so it goes from thick to thin..
When thats done you tie a knot in the single string sticking out the braid
the knot is about 3CM from the end.
Step 5: The Stick!
If thats done.. youre done!
On the last picture are 2 whips ive made.. the both crack and hurt..
Remember its not a joke to hit some one with this
Step 6: The Crack!
How to crack a whip..
Go somewhere with the space needed (a lot)
The normal crack:
Youre a clock (yes you are!)
Your head is 12 o clock.. feet six o clock.. and your facing three o clock..
Take you arm (with the whip) from six o clock to 1 o clock and then to 4 o clock..
You dont need much power or speed..
I found that women can learn it faster mayb cuz they dind't fore it too much..
The crack is not a blow .. its the air that "cracks" by the speed of the knot on the end.
And ofcourse youtube is loaded with people showing there skills.
