I've been juggling clubs for a while.



but now I have left the confinds of London. And I'm of for a trip a round the world. ubbloco juggle clap bounce2 bounce



As im not in the greatness of the London juggling and spinning clubs. I thought that I would start this of to keep up with you lot.

And to keep you informed of what is out there in the big wide world.



So the latest moves that I am working on are.



1 Flats:

most of all im trying to do flat back cross.

But also 522 combos with one of the 2's caught under the leg

also box and 441's



2 stalls:

Im trying all type of stalls on different places, feet legs, shoulder and the chin.



do you have any more to add to this.

that I could be trying

Good answers, hug

However, I was due to order more fluozies anyways, so i might as well get him to make some that i can take overseas anyway.

Borrowed balls arent mine and I like mine frown

Stageballs bounce out of my hand and make me feel stupid. I have 7 of them anyway, and im not a fan. They have the ability of rolling, whereas beanbags, dont (as much).

On that site it says he uses seeds too Cole confused

Clubs damage my perfectly manicured and moisturised hands wink

if you actually email him and ask about the plastic beads he used on his 6-panel beanbags, he'll know what you're after.



be warned though - plastic fillings tend to give beanbags more bounce on the catch...



do you know if he managed to find any better stitching methods for the large beanbags...?



if he did and you happen to be ordering white fluozies, let me know please cos i need repairs/new beanbags... smile

Ucof...some thoughts

Plastic filling is footinmouth censored I had some balls in NZ that had them - I cut them open, bought some bird seed and filled and sowed them. You can do this with flouzies but I wouldn't recommend it.

You can have them treated when you arrive.

Check www.juggleart.com who is the juggling shop here in Melbourne that suplies all of aussie. I don't think they have flouzies. Are beanbags no good??

Come and stay in Melbourne dude smile hug

Tell you what Jon, I'll show you how to sew up holes in your balls.

That'll then mean that
i. You can take empty balls and fill them with local millet or lentils or whatever suitable filling you can find when you arrive in the country.
ii. I won't have to keep repairing your juggling balls wink

But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

I dont know if you have seen the winner of the fatboy slim juggling video comp.

I was a bit unhappy about this winner

here's the video...

I thought that there were atleast 5 better vids. interms of juggling and general look of the video that were better thought out and more in time with the music.

this I thought should win...

this I thought would be a bit more like fat boy slim...

and this one also had a good chance

I don't want to take away from the winner, cos he is a great juggler. but the other vids are better.

well that is my rant for the day over.

P.S. for the ones that dont know I get married on friday 15th.

love you all

To do a mini, as the string leaves the diabolo your hand that let go of the diabolo stick catches the string, and makes it do a circle faster. therefor making it easyer to do than a full genocide

Yeah that is good. I like it more than the other.
But try the other. I tryed to do it with a catch behind the head I got it a few times. But have not been doing diabolo for the last month so not that on top of things.

you can go into continous suicide from it but that is another I have not tryed for a long time. good luck with it.

that continous suicide trick is one i havent mastered yet. i think my string is too thick. is there any secret way of learning it, or is it just a heap of practice?
it always ends up on the handle im spinning around

new and thin string will help. henrys is the stuff I like to use. I have found that through normal use I go through a string a week, and have been knowen to go throught one a day at points. the problem is that with old string it gets dirty and creates more friction so continous suicides get harder to do. my advice is to buy a lot of string and use old sticks(not your best ones) or buy some wooden ones, cos you will find that they will hit the floor realy hard and tend to break very quick when you are learning it.

as for me the only new things that I am tryin is with clubs, flats with a reverse pass. getting there but not to much luck at the moment.
