Hi. I am new here. I juggle mostly in my wheelchair. I am also quite new to the juggling lingo. A couple of weeks ago a friend of mine challenged me to take a juggling record in my wheelchair, he came up with some difficult ideas and I said "no way", but I have done it now. 2 ball in one hand while I balance on two wheels of the wheelchair, if balance is lost and I might fall backwards and if so I could injure the head really bad, so it is risky! I am currently working on the 5 ball cascade qualification, 3 balls reversed Mills mess and alternate between synch and asynchronous 4 balls fontaine. I have plans for attending the Swedish juggling convention and EJC next year. I use Instagram with the username wheelchair.juggling.
Welcome aboard. The two-in-one hand with a wheelie sounds neat. Well done.
I just added a 'while balanced in a wheelchair' modifier to the records section which you can use to define your own tricks in the records section, & I've fixed the system to allow Instagram videos too.
That's impressive stuff. I've only seen one other wheelchair juggler at a juggling festival who was balancing on 2 wheels while balancing a club on their chin which must've required some crazy core strength!
Yay! Thanks you so much Jon for the options!
That sounds cool double balance. It requires good control of core strength!
I met a wheelchair juggler for the first time only last weekend at a convention. I was very frustrated as her front wheels moved sideways a lot on every toss, so a lot of energy gets wasted moving yourself around rather than your props. I mentioned this to her and she acknowledged the difficulty, but got fed up with having to lock/unlock her brakes every time she dropped...
Glad to see in your videos that your wheelchair is kinda stable, as long as you're with 4 wheels on the ground of course ;)
Good luck setting records!
