Hyper drop

Full circle

This technique is done using the open Balisong. The Hyper drop techniques are actually exercises to help you focus on the handle, while out of your hand. You'll find yourself recovering from drops faster, and in a manageable way.

What you're actually doing here, is a succession of clockwise and counter clockwise rotations around your hand, always landing in the same position.

For this example, I only show the Backhand grip version. This should also be practiced in the Forward grip.
