I applaud with much enthusiasm!

Yeah… Unreal… I feel like this is the turning point where Soloham turned into its own true thing that works in freestyle. Hajime did it as if it was just normal 4A - no hesitation in binding - so smooth, etc.

3A used to be like this - really rigid.
Throw -> Mount -> Bounce YoYo Around -> Bind -> Repeat, etc.
But then Kentaro Kimura in 2009 won Worlds and I feel like it really it changed at that point… And that is kind of what I felt watching Hajime win with this routine!

Amazing to watch the evolution happen in front of you! :blush:


This Kentaro routine is still my favorite Worlds routine ever.


Hong Kong seems to be bigger on 2A
