    Life Benefits From Juggling

    Juggling was a big part of my job for nearly 30 years, and I am so thankful that it was, because it has continued to make a big difference to so many aspects of my life. Machetes, firesticks, clubs, fruit and vegetables, eggs, ice-blocks, cakes, crockery...

    I've always liked anything

    Back At the 3 Ball Cascade

    I taught myself to juggle over 2 decades ago, before the YouTube era.  I recently came across a bunch of really good YouTube juggling tutorials, and I'm working on perfecting my juggling form for the 3 ball cascade and 2 balls with one hand. It seems like one of those...

    oh, the day I found myself the greatest

    experience thing that will ever happen to me. I was in the sixth grade, and there was a kid that always had a long double-ended pen that he would do neat tricks with. It's like when you are in a classroom, and somebody twirling their utensil, but it's ten times better. I decided...

    Favorite Things To Juggle

    I love to entertain my kiddies. They are all fascinated with juggling, and I find this delightful. My preschoolers like to watch me juggle soft pinecones and ping pong balls. My granddaughter, at 8 or 9 months old, cracked up when I juggled lego duplos and rock-a-stack rings...

    Kinda

    i can juggle, but only scarves. my reaction time isn't quite good enough to juggle things that gravity effects more quickly. my brother, however, was able to transcend the scarves and move on to heavier things. scarves like these, btw. juggling scarves. not like winter scarves...

    Yup. Me Too :)

    I learnt a long time ago with oranges, much to my bro's displeasure. He still has dirty, sticky marks all over his carpet to this day. I made my niece and nephews giggle today by juggling with a grape, a golf ball and a banana :)

    My Limit Is 3

    My husband taught me to juggle when we were first dating.  I can juggle three balls decently and when we practice my husband and I can juggle back and forth a bit.  I am by no means a good juggler, but it's fun . . . now I want to find something to juggle!

    Shut Eyes!!

    Sure can. I can do it with my eyes closed too. And at that point someone usually trips me up or something. Just because I'm not looking...I can probably go up to about five balls at a time.

    Up to 3 Balls

    I started with two, which was fairly easy, and then graduated to 3 within a couple of days after reading a tutorial book. Very soon I was able to do tricks such as Under the Leg, Backwards Juggling and the Catch..... it's indeed a fun skill to have on hand! Although I have...

    Actually

    Technically I can only juggle one handed. I get muddled up trying to do two hands. 3 balls with one hand is easy, with two, I just can get it right.I know I know I am weird.
