Hello there, thanks for letting me join this forum. I am a beginner juggler living in the Blue Mountains in Australia. So far I can only do the three ball cascade but I am working on some four ball juggling tricks right now. Cheers, Jochen

Welcome aboard, Jochen. Straight to 4-ball tricks, though? 3-ball tricks can be a lot of fun. Well, anyhow, enjoy the ride!

hi & welcome

Hey Jochen

if you're already working on 4 ball tricks, you're not that much of a beginner. We're all still learning, after all, regardless of how long we've been throwing things up and letting them drop. What tricks are you working on?

Thanks Simon, I am working on the asynchronous and synchronous 4 ball fountain. A few weeks in I am seeing lots of progress but I am not quite there yet. Good point about learning more three ball tricks. I think that's what I will work on next. Just out of interest: Do you have a daily routine around your juggling practise?

Lovely showcase of Masahiro Takahashi's talents.

Film & juggling style very reminiscent of the Toby Walker DVD from back in the day.

Thanks for posting that. I really enjoyed it.
One for next years BJC.

Hi Vincent,

I'm Florian, I believe we have met at the last passout convention (did you have a full beard at that time?).
Will there be a registration form on the webpage when registration is open?
Or how does one register?

Thanks, I'm looking forward to this convention :)

Nevermind, found the link :)

What's the worst conditions you ever had to or did juggle in?
[ rather 'seriously', kind'a sheduled stint, I mean not just for joy in the mud for a couple yer minutes or not just a couple 'e y'attempts in a thunderstorm jus' for a good laugh ]

The Void - - Parent

Not sure about "worst", but most annoying was when I was booked to entertain as a juggler, and on arrival at the venue, finding I could very nearly touch the ceiling with my outstretched arm. 3 balls ahoy!

7b_wizard - - Parent

Haha, okay!

Hmm, I recall working as a fire juggler many years ago in somewhere cold, wet, and northern such as Huddersfield or Rochdale. It was also bastard cold, sleeting/snowing, and blowing a gale. I used custom torches at that time - heavy build, shortish in length, and enormous wicks. Those bastards were heavy AF and hard on your hands but in general they didn't get blown around by the wind at all, they were much more stable than even Renegade clubs.

But not that day, oh no, if there was a bit of a gust at the moment when I threw a single spin it would move sideways a metre before coming back level with my hands ... which sadly by that time were already a metre away and receding fast.

oh yeah, sounds very horrible ;o}

I once performed in a circus scene for an outdoor opera. On one night it rained so hard it drowned out the sound of the singers. We did point out that we couldn't perform in the conditions but nobody cared. Part of our set was a devilstick routine & we were using old style devilsticks (this was before the hyper-grippy Lunastix style props) they might as well have been made from soap. After about 20 drops & not succeeding in keeping the prop afloat for more than 3 seconds I decided that learning to cope with the conditions in front of the audience was not a great idea & just juggled them instead, but the rain was so hard it hurt to keep your eyes open so I barely did more than a cascade. The acrobats slipped & fell flat. Afterwards it was a strip & wring out your underpants affair.

It was hilarious. Not sure the punters thought so.

Oh, my goodness! Impossible, ugly and mean as conditions.

Penn Jillette talks juggling and the olympics with Jason Garfield

The WJF is still a thing (I’m not sure I would have believed it would be 15 years ago) and it’s really nice to hear Jason talking about it without any of the ludicrous angry character he used to trot out back then.

Worth a listen if you’ve got an hour spare
