Sorry to resurrect a very old thread,

But Ive seen Matt Hennem doing a very little bit of mindblowingly cool contact juggling, but I was distracted and drunk at the time.

I looked at the above site and couldnt see his vid without a password. Do you know anywhere else I could see a vid of Matt Hennem, or Franc from Paris (I think his stage name might be Mica Quartz or something), or Mr. Om, or some other greats?

Time's fun when you're having flies

best way to learn contact is to go and find people who can do it :-)

Juggling isn't useless, It just isn't useful.

cool, best place for vids is definatly contactjuggling.org, but you probably know that by now. that and the book by james ernst is wicked, even if that is just coz the pictures all look so nice :-)

this video

the contactjuggling.com/ site (not .org)

the shiftys-spheres site

the CJer site

also check this site for the cheapest CJ balls on the net...

check out www.dube.com for a large range of contact balls - since the US dollar is weak make the most of it.

Yeah he was just near them... outside next.

Its not the first time tho - think he might be a bit of an Oxford regular. He was doing human statue... and was silver.... maybe you thought he was a real statue? xxx
