Posted:i threw a club at my face the other day.

i was trying to release one from three in one hand and rather than throwing a double, only actually managed to flip the club directly towards my nose rolleyes

rings are the worst prop for juggling injuries - you'll get cut hands, bruised knuckles and actual skin off your nose (from dodgy pulldowns).

and i guarantee you tainted that you are not the worst juggler in the world (if you're going to a circus school and you've been juggling for three years, i bet you're pretty good really wink).

Posted:rings = cuttage of the skin in between of your index and thumb
or at least for me it does
I feel your pain with the rings, I hated it so much the first time that I tried them, I gave up and started working with pins. Plus, we all know that pins > rings.

Posted:I have found that when you learn clubs and THEN rings, rings are harder,but if you learn rings THEN clubs, rings seem easier...
they all cause pain in differing amounts though... it's just something you have to get used to for each time you learn a new trick wink
maybe that's a bit unhelpful... enjoy your juggling, it's great fun once you get the knack of it - highly addictive too juggle
