I don't know a video, but come to viaduct or brixton and I or a load of other people can show you no problem.
Or just come on the anti war march tomorrow, and learn them there. (plug plug)

Wow, a video of snakes... I can't say that I've ever seen one.

Have you tried getting in touch with your local juggling group... surely someone knows how to do snakes and could show you.

That's how our troupe learned... we had a Flying Karamozov Brother teach us!

Good luck - they're a really cool trick once you learn them. I still struggle to do them 'out of sync' meaning one arm different than the other... it's pretty crazy.

Well, beard you are not alone. I spent a lot of time on the weekend trying to figure out some of the spirals. What snake/s are you having trouble with?

There is this Video , but I haven't seen it, and it only advertises basic single and double drills. I think there are other video's around.

Charly's comment about the local juggling group is a good one, as is glass's offer. I was in a juggling shop in Melbourne on the weekend, and the sales guy, a juggler, said that someone did snakes at their juggle jam.

Other suggestions: Get a copy, and decipher Schatz's book. It has lots of good diagrams and info on snakes. Better still, get a copy of Anna Semlyen's book on modern club swinging.

As you are in the UK why not attend one of Anna Semlyen's Cosmos Jugglers Workshops. You can also look in the library at Anna's site for info on basic Snakes

Finally, I will try to help if you have a specific problem, but I think I'm in the same leaky boat. Good Luck

luz, snakes are Indian club moves that are meant to resemble snakes winding around your arms and body. Try this link and look in the library at Anna's site for basic info. Cheers
