Hey guys I've been trying to juggle for a few weeks now and I just can't do it! I have quite a few DVDs and different balls but I just can't do it! Do any of you know any good DVDs or methods? Thank you!

Practice ... there is no such thing as 'self-working' juggling. You've got the DVD's and props now all you need is time. Remember: You only need to practice for 15 minutes ... but 15 minutes EVERYDAY !!

Good luck,

Cap'n Mike

Mike & Steve are right, practice it in front of a mirror, to music, and over your bed. Do it 15 minutes a day, every day.

How about starting out with Scarf juggling... check out the link or read it from this book "The Complete Juggler".
http://www.expertvillage.com/video/8622_......cade.htm


"The Complete Juggler" has a lot of good info on juggling

If you really want to learn to juggle...skip the scarves. As Al often mentions, try to find a local juggling club. Though I am sure your DVD's are good, nothing beats the immediate input from a juggler. Most beginner jugglers suffer from the same types of mistakes that can easily be remedied by a trained eye.

Good luck and stick to it!

The problem is often that you are throwing both balls at the same time...its one, then the other...

Wait, strike that and reverse it.

A juggler and a magi are hanging out when the magi does a trick and the juggler says 'Wow can I buy that trick, too?'.

Sometime later the juggler does a trick the magi goes 'Wow how much time, dedication and practice did that trick take?'

Now it's funnier AND it's true ...

:O)

Ok - y'all know I was joking there ... hello ...?

Ah, jeez, OK, I'll admit my magic takes up a lot of my time, dedication and practise, too. Its just that many methods in magic make the effect so easy (self-working) that we (OK, I) like to joke about how much more skill juggling may take than magic ... that's all ...

hello ...?
