Here's a video I recorded today....

You'll understand now why I'm a toss juggler and not a contact juggler!! jeje

I'd love to hear (read) what you think and what I could improve and so on....

Hope you like it!!


BTW!! Briney I'm sorry It's not nine balls or six clubs... I think I'll get those before I get good at contact!! jeje

You've got some nice fluidity and that enigma was fun to watch. I'm not as good as you are, but I still suggest you remove whatever that is on your wrist if it's metal as it might scratch your ball and/or disrupt your moves.

Also, you might want to try slowing down your moves so that you learn more balance and control so that the ball has less of a tendency to get away from you. You seem rushed and a little flustered. Try for serene and magical.

Hey, if you think you're bad you're crazy! I think you're doing great...way better than me(though I never practice literally).

The only thing I have to say(other than keep it up!) is slow down a bit , it'll help you look more relaxed.
Just because I have a short attention span doesn't mean I

Argh...I hope you didn't only start when you joined this forum, that would make me...feel...really....bad.

No, you're gorgeous, seriously. As the others said, you may want to try it a little more slowly next time but honestly, I'm quite impressed.

Loved the music and the green background too.

You've got a really good grasp of all the basics, all you need to do is slow it down a touch and work on some control.

There was a lot of 'using the ball's momentum' in there, which for me gives the game (and the illusion) away.

Seriously though, good stuff. Stop toss juggling for a while
