Posted: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....

Posted:this video isn't about poorly executed juggling patterns - more juggling patterns that aren't amazingly filmed. The patterns are good in themselves and I don't see too many glaring technical errors in your technique - no wobbly feet/bad posture etc. Nice juggling Mike!

And it's still all better than my attempts last night at learning 2 handed tapbacks with clubs frown Right hand is getting there but the left hand is just a mess laugh3


A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.

Posted:Last night we managed a 2-person 8-ball shower. Started with one person holding all 8, showered them out to the other for a qualify and ended up with the other person catching them all.

Really liking ball passing at the moment!

Posted:I've a toss question for y'all: why does everyone say the 3b cascade is easier than the 3b shower? I've been able to do the 3b shower for years but can't do the cascade for the life of me.

Posted:Just the way you were taught I would think. The problem now would be breaking the bad habit of always doing an across throw with probably your left hand and teaching it to always throw in an upward motion to get the cascade down, so may take longer to teach/learn it than someone who has't learnt to juggle a shower pattern.

I always find it easier teaching someone the cascade if they haven't first said "Look I can juggle" and proceeded to do the common 2 ball shower, as they always struggle to remember to throw upwards under pressure to catch.

Posted:Mynci: I get them to start with their other hand in that case. Once they get used to it, stuff goes better.

eca: The cascade is easier to make slower than a shower is, so it *should* be easier to learn. I have met someone who swore blind I was wrong and a shower was easier, but he could not really hold the (shower) pattern anyway.

Any advice?

Posted:This probably sounds stupid, but (trust me) it's not.

CONCENTRATE ON THE SECOND CATCH!

Aaaaand forget about the third catch. The third catch doesn't matter. Do exactly as you do with two and just throw away the third ball. When you're super comfortable making two catches and a third throw then you can start to think about catching that third throw.

Doing things in a logical order ftw, yo!

Posted:Got some 3 club 3 up 360's.

Why does everything have to be so much harder with clubs? Hahaha.

I've also been doing 423 on flats but with single spin 2's. It's quite addictive.


Oh yeah, and I learnt romeo's revenge from a youtube tutorial. It's quite nice and really easy to learn if you can already do rubenstein's. It's been soooooo long since I learnt a 3 ball pattern that has a non-descriptive name!

Juggling is awesome. Done more of that than poi this year. Getting to be a decent three ball juggler too. smile

Still some stuff I need to work on, but have not bothered since uni is distracting.

Uni in my last post was short for unicycle. wink
Although the other one is keeping me busy too.

With that said, what's next? Obviously keep working on my cascade, but what's another good beginner pattern for 3 ball?

Posted:Get started on the reverse cascade, it'll open the way for a few tricks, including mills mess.

2 in one hand - make sure you keep in plane or you'll have to relearn it later!

Learn to do the cascade slowly and above head height, and learn flashes at the same height, will set you up for more balls, spins and body throws

Posted:Got another fun three ball multiplex thing. Crossed arms, two in bottom hand facing up, one in top in claw. Throw everything up so that the three balls form a horizontal line, with both hands following along.
Pick the middle ball out with your top hand, grab the ball that was in the top hand with the other from below.
Drop your hands, crossing them the other way and catching the third ball in the hand that was on top, either on the way down or let it drop into it.

You can reverse this and have the two balls held on top in claw, but it is a little tricksier.

Posted:Oooh, me'like smile

Just had a little play and it will work if you have the lower (multiplex) hand in contortion position, once you grab the last ball at the end just carry on the movement round your back and you're back to the mirror of where you started. Its going in my trick-bag fo'sho!

Edit: You need to move the hand that starts in contortion back round your front as soon as you throw obviously, or you'll end up tied in a confused knot...
