A renewed target – by close of play on Tues 28 February 2023 I will juggle five balls in a basic cascade pattern. I can juggle four balls relatively confidently and I know the drills I need to do. And I have enough discipline to do them…
|Niels Duinker||Instructional video||Taylor Glenn||Instructional video|
|1||High toss three ball cascades||1||Three ball flash|
|2||Three-up (flash) with clap||2||Three ball at five ball height, maximum dwell time [accurate!]|
|3||“Snake” from hand to hand (three balls in one hand, throw to other, while third is coming down, throw the first back…||3||Three ball at five ball height, minimum dwell time [accurate!]|
|4||Four balls cross overs||4||5-5-2|
|5||Right left, left right||5||Five ball flash|
|6.||Five ball flash|
Meanwhile, when (not if) I return to three- club juggling (in the next couple of days) I will be wearing safety goggles, since I nearly blinded myself in my left eye last Saturday morning. I deliberately had clubs collide, and did not sufficiently consider what would happen next – POW, right in the see-er. Was very lucky that I have done no damage (afaik) except to my dignity. I want to end February closer to my goal of four club juggling, so will put in a certain amount of either hand doubles with two clubs…
Why am I doing all this?
It’s fun. It reminds me of how long it takes to be good at anything.
Having to pick up failures is good for the soul.
I may switch from academia to running away with the circus. There’s more job security, and it’s all clowning anyway.
