Juggling

Being an amateur juggler myself, I can appreciate good juggling. Here is a video of the best 3 ball repertoire I've ever seen:

That's kinda cool. Never seen the triangle prop before.


Here's a dude who uses a huge translucent cone for a pretty cool 360 effect

that first video is pretty aswome I love the backround music if anyone knows who the artist is I want to know.
Anyone know where the rest of the triangle video is (or a more current one) ive seen a guy play some more complex rythms in a triangle before.
Another one Ive seen was a guy juggling in the vacinity of 7 balls on one of those giant pianos that you walk on. I think it was on that 60 seconds to fame show :?, he was a finalist and lost to a girl that sung I can Survive.

Good videos. Im able to juggle, only 3 balls, Ive done pins/hammers ect (with little sucess). really the only reason I know how to juggle at all is two of my baseball coaches when I was 12 were trying to juggle while we were practicing, and I told them I bet I could learn by the end of the season (about two weeks) and they said theyd buy me a pizza if i did it. by the next practice I was teaching them how to juggle, kinda sad, but hey a kid will do alot for a free pizza.

I learned to juggle in a 3 ball cascade in four days when I was about 14. I then learned rings in about 15 minutes. It took about ten days to learn clubs. But that was when I was 14 when I picked things up instantly.

I hadn't done any juggling for 20+ years when I decided I wanted to pick it up (no pun intended) again a couple weeks ago. I'm slowly adding some variations to my 3 ball routine. So far in addition to the cascade I can do a half shower, reverse cascade, several column variations, fake moves in conjunctions with columns and several body bounces and head and neck catches. I'm working on perfecting claw catches and cross- armed juggling.

Rings are super easy and clubs are simpler than they look but I haven't added any tricks to them yet. Give me a few more weeks.......

I just received an order I placed with Dube today. A book and a couple DVDs.

One of the videos is entitled 3B . It's really cool because it shows so many different 3 ball variations from different angles set to music. It's easy to learn from it because it starts every trick with just one ball and adds the second ball and then the third. There's also a window that shows the moves in slow motion.

It shows all the traditional tricks like Mills Mess, the box, the clock,factory, chops, shower variations and behind the back stuff. But what's really cool is how they take elements of contact juggling, head rolls and bounce juggling and incorporate them into the routine. No dialogue, just cool music, quality video and some insane tricks.

I've been watching a few videos of Thomes Dietz. All his stuff (produced by Mark Probst aka schani) is incredible.

Here's a vid from a few years ago that shows some of Thomas' juggling prowess

That first vid is awesome. If you were doing the basic 3 ball routines in a week how long do you think he has been at it to do that kind of stuff? I would have guessed along time but maybe its not as difficult as it seems if you have the right instruction?

Going from no juggling experience to a basic three ball cascade is rather easy. But learning different patterns and alternate catching, throwing and balancing moves takes a lot more practice and patience.

Like many things the younger a person is when they start the quicker they're likely to pick things up and the greater the potential to be among the best later.

I would imagine Tim Kelly started young (likely before age 13) and has been practicing for many years. I've watched many videos of Vova and Olga Galchenko whom both started around 5 or 6 yrs old and they were both doing pretty amazing stuff by age 9. Today at age 15 and 18 they hold multiple world records for club passing.

Check out the Thomas Dietz video I just posted. He has all the skill of Jason Garfield but without the cocky arrogance.
