I began juggling a little over four years ago. I began with Contact Juggling, a type of juggling that involves taking one or more balls and rolling them around your body. A great example, and my personal favorite video, is Elements
. Another great video is JCJC
Now that you've been wowed by contact juggling, I hope you want to learn. By the best resource, and the way I taught myself without knowing anyone else in person who did it, is ContactJuggling.org
. You can find everything you'd need to know on that wiki. Another great resource is the .org Forum
, where you can talk to, connect, and learn from other Contact Jugglers. With these resources, and a ton of practice
, you can amaze everyone with your contact juggling, and have fun doing it!
Now, "a ton of practice
" is bolded above for a reason. Contact Juggling, like any form of Juggling, takes hours and hours of practice, failure, and patience. Along with Juggling, Patience is a skill that you will learn from juggling (I know I learned it), and I believe that Patience is an extremely useful for Social Innovation, and life in general.
As a note, the most common excuse I hear people say for not learning some type of juggling is, "I don't have the coordination." Coordination is a skill.
It can be learned and improved. One way of doing this is through juggling!
Good luck! Learn Patience! Don't be Discouraged!
If you need help, want to learn more, etc. Don't hesitate to ask me ore post on the forum there.
