General advice that will help with numbers juggling as well

Well, with numbers juggling this advice should definatley help and can help improve many basic patterns. First off, there is always a reason to dropping your props, correct? Seems to be true due to the laws of physics. Well, in order to determine what you are doing wrong, a juggler must use trial and error in order to figure out such problems. Some problems could include the following: the speed at which you are throwing or tempo, collisions with props in the air, or you find yourself not being ... Read Full Post »

The first 3 ball juggling tricks

Posted by [email protected] on December 16, 2014 at 9:25 AM Comments comments (0)
I often get asked, what are some of the first tricks I should learn now that I have mastered the 3 ball cascade? Well, in my opinion juggling tricks are in categories: reverse cascade and cascade combination tricks, siteswaps, and ones with a set up throw. The set up throw means the ball before the trick that you want to do needs to be set up. What that means is, it needs to be thrown higher, in order to do the desired trick. What I would reccomend learning are the following tricks. First, learn... Read Full Post »

Siteswap notation is very important to learn as a juggler. Here is why. Siteswap helps a juggler understand the pattern being described by using numbers. The numbers represtent the unit of time a prop spends in the air and the direction of the prop. First off, you must know that siteswap starts with numbers, 0-9 and what each number means. A "0" in siteswap notation, also known as vanillia siteswap, represents that there is a hand with no ball in it. So, a zero is an empty hand. I'm going to ski... Read Full Post »

Differences in Odd and Even patterns

Now, there are many differences in odd number juggling patters and even number juggling patterns. One of the many differences that I feel is most helpful to remember while juggling is your hand placement. Hand placement is key in all your juggling patterns, but when juggling odd number patterns it is accually a different placement of the hands. When juggling an odd number pattern your arms should be pointed more inward to get the balls to cross easier. However, when juggling an even number pa...

Learning the five ball cascade

Well, the five ball cascade is just like the three ball cascade. The same throws just higher and more balls. Got it? Probably not. Here are some tips that will help you learn the five ball cascade. First, try learning the three ball snake. This will help with the speed and the height needed to juggle five balls. Then I recommend learning to throw three balls at a five ball height. You can try to clap underneath the three balls while they are in the air because the clap represents another thro...

Learning the four ball fountain

Well, weather or not you want to learn the syncronous or the aysyncronous founatin with four balls is toatally up to you, but these tips can be for both. First thing that you have to know how to do is two in one hand with both hands. To do this I would use inside to outside circles. Now, two in one hand can be easy because all you are looking at is one ball in the air, but some things that you would not think to do are: try to remember to throw the ball on the right side and at an angle. Not str... Read Full Post »

Three ball cascade helpful hints

To learn the three ball cascade you must be able to throw a ball in the air to the other hand while standing in the same spot. Easy, right? Well, try it with two balls starting with your dominant hand with the first throw and once it reaches as high as it will go try and throw the other ball at the same angle and hieght. Then, of course start with your weak hand. Throwing the balls at the same angle like a perfect X helps so that you do not have to reach your hands out far. You can pretty much m... Read Full Post »
