Well, seeing as we are starting to take over the

"Offical HOP "I just learnt a new move" thread", I thought we should contain this bit just to jugglerisng and the throwing and dropping of balls, clubs, rings and other miscellaneous juggling props.

Today I mothered learning 441.

I had a few throws of 531 but only 1 catch. I think my 5 is too high.

Note for the mods: I DEMAND on behalf of the jugglers on this site, as has been done with the aforementioned "Poi moves thread", that this one is made a sticky thread.

Otherwise its just favouritism really....

Above the head juggling rocks! (eventually)

423 is pretty solid. As is two in one hand - both hands.
Mills mess is coming...
I have qualified 531 (damn nice) and 4 balls.
Working on 441, shower and box but the 1 throws are tricky.

Any other ideas for above the head juggling?

i got 7 catches of 5 ball above the head the other day lol. first try too. hehe what a fluke.



if you want a challenge a good three ball pattern for above the head is boston mess. i actually get it to work for a few cycles from time to time smile

Achieved my longest-yet stretch of 4 ball fountain tonight and it's actually starting to feel a bit more solid at last smile

Not convinced I feel bold enough to start thinking about 4b tricks though!

WOO HOO! I just got a trick I've been working on since Play!

It's a way to change spiral directions (not mills mess) involving a high throw and a same-side throw and catch under the arm.

biggrin *triumphant*

534 - 5 crossing double, 3 self and 4 ultimate pass. 4's are ultimate passes from both hands.

Therefore, 633 would be 6 (triple straight pass) 33 (selfs).

No idea when I'll be back in London frown smile

I realised the other day my clubs have come along such a long way since I left London. I almost caught a 3c pirouette the other day. My hands weren't there to meet them tho frown Had a nice long run of 5c triples last thursday, maybe 25 catches or so??

Johnny - play with the 6c ultimate idea - throw any 4b siteswap and remember that all passes are 4's. Anything aobve a 4 crosses to other person (so 5 is crossing double, 6 is straight triple etc) and 1,2 and 3 are all selfs.

Really getting in to juggling. Nothing impressive.

3 ball cascades, reverse cascades, windmill, claws, tennis and a few other things learnt

Working on wide reverse cascades and pillars now i think

After not posting anything new for bloody ages, I have a new trick!

I managed several times to flash backcross doubles out of, and back into a 3club cascade today! Felt so good.

I also managed 37 catches of 6b today (new PB). I rarely practice it, but today it seemed easy.

I been trying to do a under arm tennis combo with clubs which is surprisingly harder then it looks. Cuz your hand needs to move faster then in a normal underarm tick.

he he i am mike the amazing gloscircus person who is mike.

Hey monkey - 5b lift suddenly becomes easier. Stick with it dude smile

I've been getting 3b up piros a lot recently. Managed to catch it once with clubs but it's still looking pretty dicey.

Managed to pick up a dropped club in 7c doubles (passing) the other day. 9c is looking much better too smile

It seemed easy today to ge the pattern going, but I'm experimenting with hand positioning at the moment, so haven't really solidified the pattern.



Good going with the 9club passing!
