If you've got two hands and can throw and catch one ball you can learn to do it with three. The cascade isn't all that difficult once you get your head around the fact that you are throwing with both hands, one after the other.

If you don't have access to a juggling shop where you are I'd recommend making some cloth beanbags to work with. Here's an example of some homemade juggling balls: http://www.butterfingers.co.uk/Ko-Bespok......L0101002

The advantage is you can make them as big or as small as you like and fill them as much as you want too. Some jugglers prefer a much firming juggling ball, where as others like them to be a little more squashy.

If you decide to make your own balls the average size is about 62mm - 67mm diameter and around 130g in weight. As you'll see most juggling balls are also made of four panels of fabric.

You don't need a sewing machine to make these either, just a needle and thread.

Its better to work with good juggling balls. You'll learn quicker.

PS

You may like to look here: http://www.jugglingdb.com/compendium/ski......ags.html

It gives advice on how to construct your own juggling beanbags. I've used these type of bags before, made by Dave Barnes, and they are gorgeous!!

Good luck Smile

I think just about anyone can learn some very basic juggling. However, some will learn more quickly then others. To take juggling to more advanced levels is a huge commitment, but for those who decide to make this choice, it is a very worthwhile one. Nothing quite like the satisfaction of finally mastering a new pattern, after weeks, months, or even years of trying...

I took about two months to keep three balls up. My ex learned that much in twenty minutes. I love juggling and envy the guys that can do it well, but unfortunately I have learned my limits!
