Metsubishi that looks a bit like "ropes"?

Hi there,
I saw a youtube video (it's not available anymore, so I can't show it to you, sorry), where Metsubishi use was demonstrated.
I think they used the normal stuff like wheat etc. for the main part.

But there was also a demonstration of Metsubishi, that looked a bit like thin white "ropes", that flew through the air. I guess it has to be some kind of paper, because it stayed in the air for quite some time.

Has anyone of you heard of it? How do you make it? :)

Thanks!

Read about it in a book too, some type of thread or string or fishing wire but I can't remember.

Yes, that's exactly what I meant.
Now I just have to find out what it is :)

If you have some free time you could tie 10ft lengths of white string to about 20-30 small metal washers or nuts. Tie all of the free ends together into one point.

Thanks again, NYorker.
That's a good idea.
I had my first "hands-on" experience with metsubishi this weekend and baby powder turned out great.
But it would be very interesting to use this string-approach for indoor training.

Thanks!

It was a party string popper.

A good friend of mine told me, that baby powder mixed with sand works out better, than baby powder alone... still have to test that.

The metsubushi used in the video is great... wish one could buy those somewhere.

Yes, sand in the eyes sucks...badly. Baby powder is a substitute used in training for safety, painful and distracting, but harmless. Not sure if the "ropes" used are for demonstration only? Doubt they would have any realistic effect on an attacker charging.

Soke is using hand streamers and can be bought at most magic stores. I've used them a lot when I was performing professionally. While they are not hard to use, they do take a knack.
