Posted:So, Recently I have just been balancing my clubs in every way and I have gotten pretty darn good. So I come today asking, am I just looking stupid or is this some skill? If anyone out there has information please post it.

Happy HoPing grin

Posted:Balancing is definitely a skill in it's own right, but doesn't need to be limited to clubs.

Also, it would take most people several lifetimes to balance any item in every way, so there will always be new ways to balance and push the envelope.

What balances have you got down pat now?

Posted:Well on parts of my body I can do both hands, both forearms, chin.

I'm working on balancing on my nose and forehead and the top of my feet. What i'm mostly doing it going into the balances like, Spining the club half way and balancing the top part of the club on my hand. From that i can flip it, From top too bottom. I can pass hands while balancing. With the forearms I have not worked on any tricks. With my chin still I just can balance on my chin. I'm working on balancing two clubs at the same time.

Uhh.. that is pretty much it for now. I'm working on some ideas. But thats it for now.

Posted:to make it as simple as possible it takes work, I don't have alot of interest in learning club balancing although I've worked on it alittle and I see it as any other trick it simply takes time and as much work as you'd put into any other trick.

Posted:Poje, I feel your pain. That is one of my favorite juggling tricks too but i can never seem to get it and just end up hitting myself in the face. Youch!

I have been practicing chin balancing hoops though, Talk about tricky especially if you put them up and down your face rather than across it. Looks Rad Though.
