Juggling Tips

You will not learn how to juggle chainsaws and puppies in one day (and certainly not chainsaws and puppies together in one day). Start with something very easy, such as tennis balls, oranges, or even bean bags.

You may not even learn to juggle three balls when you first begin. Start with one ball. As silly as this sounds, it will help you perfect your technique.

As you begin to practice with one ball, start with the ball in your stronger hand (if you are right-handed, this will be your right hand, and if you are left-handed, this will be your left hand). Throw the ball up and across so you can catch it in your weaker hand. You should throw the ball in such a way that it peaks at your eye-level and you do not have to outstretch your arm to catch it. Once you have done this, throw the ball again from your weaker hand to your stronger hand. Repeat as often as necessary, and try not to watch the ball too much as you do this, as you will not be able to watch multiple balls simultaneously as you move forward. Once you feel comfortable doing this, you can move on to juggling two balls.

When starting to juggle with two balls, start as you would with one ball, only make sure that you have a ball in each hand. Once you have thrown the ball in your stronger hand, as it reaches its peak, throw the ball in your weaker hand. By doing this, you should have thrown them in a way that the second ball will pass underneath the first ball. Repeat as the balls land in the opposite hands from where they started, but make sure you alternate your starting point (stronger hand, then weaker hand, then stronger hand, etc.). Repeat until you feel comfortable enough to attempt to juggle three balls.

Juggling with three balls is somewhat similar to juggling with two balls, only you will start by holding two balls in your stronger hand and one in your weaker. As you release the first ball from your stronger hand, make sure you are also not releasing the second ball from your stronger hand simultaneously. As the ball you have thrown from your weaker hand reaches its peak, at that point you may release the second ball from your stronger hand. This will probably take a good amount of practice before you perfect it, or at the very least it will take practice to ensure that you are not dropping all three balls or throwing the third ball way out of reach!

DON'T GET DISCOURAGED! Juggling will require a lot of concentration and practice on your part, as well as good hand-eye coordination. Nobody will expect you to be perfect on your first attempt. Even simply by practicing you will help train yourself to know exactly when to throw the balls to ensure that you catch them each time and have plenty of time to throw again.

Once you have mastered the art of juggling three balls, you may wish to try to add a fourth ball into the mix. This will make your juggling much more complex and may take you quite some time to perfect in comparison to three balls. Once you have mastered this, expect five balls to take even longer still to perfect.

Once you have mastered the art of juggling three balls, you may wish to move onto juggling something else, such as clubs. There is one major difference in juggling clubs, and that is that when throwing the clubs you should make sure that you spin them as you throw them, with each club undergoing one full spin once in the air. You should also make sure that you thow (and catch) the clubs with the handles facing towards you.

One of the most common problems for beginners juggling with clubs is that they are afriad they will hit themselves with the clubs, and because of this they will throw the clubs at an unnatural distance in comparison to the balls. You will actually be less likely to hit yourself if you drop your arms a bit lower than where you feel you need to have them at to throw the clubs. Another common problem is that beginners may tend to either underspin or overspin the clubs as they are being thrown. Once again, this is a technique that can be mastered over time.

No matter how much of a juggling "expert" you believe yourself to be, if you think you are ready to move on to juggling other items (such as knives or chainsaws), make sure you are being supervised by a true juggling expert with experience with these items at all times! Also, be aware that many jugglers who juggle items such as these are using special juggling props and not the actual items!
