1. How To Juggle 3 Balls: Hello and welcome to our first video here on skill share. My name is Josh Important. I'm a nine time gold medalist in the world tips juggling. I'm a 12 time beautiful record holder. So with those things, I think I'm justified in being able to teach three balls. That's what this lesson is a bath, but will be doing more. Definitely. Stay tuned. Let's start with three balls. First. Talk about what to juggle, I recommend, especially your learning using juggling beanbags. Being back will not roll away when you drop, because drops are gonna happen. And that's okay. You could buy juggling beanbags and lots of jumping stores, including mine juggling warehouse dot com. If you don't have juggling bags, you can pick up passing sacks. You can make your own rolled socks work. Okay, Some fool. You know we'll learn with tennis balls. That's how I have to learn five balls. But it's really, really frustrating because they found all over the place when you drop to try to find something that won't roll away. So hopefully you have something. Juggle on before we move on to getting with what you're juggling. Let's just talk about body position. We'll always be standing up straight. You want your feet about shoulder width apart. You want your knees slightly bent so you can make minor adjustments. But for the most part, you don't want to ever be moving your feet. You don't want to be walking around. A lot of people struggle with moving all over the place. Might learn to juggle, and you really want to focus on keeping those feet planted the entire time. Your arms are always pretty close to your sides. A lot. You'll think juggling happened up here. That's what it's like in the cartoons. But in real life, juggling happens right here. So you want your elbows always be pretty close to your sides, and you're handling making inward scoops with each throw. So first, let's start with just one ball, your record tossing the ball from right to left, left to right. The ball should not be going much higher than your head, and it's feeling pretty good. You want to work on lower at about eye level, so work on that. Nice and easy eight words scoops with both hands. It is the same exact height from your right and your left hand. And as you're throwing this one ball, you want to do this Just looking at one place. You want to point your eyes one direction slightly up, three to see the peak of the ball. But you don't want to follow the ball the whole time. Because if you could only do like that you're not. Do you have three balls going? Eso pick one point and use your peripheral vision for the catches because you won't be able to follow every single catch when you get up to three. If you'll notice it's kind of making a figure eight in the air as it goes from hand. All right, this is easy for you. You've got that second, a lot of people think this is how you juggle two balls. Don't do that. Get that out of your head right now. I'm sorry I even showed it to you. Uh, with two balls to learn three. What you're gonna do is this right? Left catch. Catch. Right, left catch. So you're making just the same throw we did with one. Same thing with your left hand. You're doing those two throws just alternating times. So right left catch. Right left. Same height for both hands. Alternating times. It kind of makes it XO, that figure eight in the airs, you girls, because the ball's thrown the same height pattern should be pretty even. So should be top top top top with to throw with two catches, you can say out loud. Right, Left, right, left, Catch. And if you are saying that it's right. Left, right, left. You're doing something wrong to try to get it evenly spaced, right? Left. Once you could do this 10 times in a row. Try starting with your left hand. Exact same things people say. Oh, I'm not left handed. I can't do this. This is so much harder. You've already proven that you could do with the right. And it's the same thing with your left. You're just switching. We can start with. You shouldn't be that much harder to go. Left, right, left, right, right. Same height. Same exact goes you're doing. You're just starting with the left and say to your right. All right. If that is going well, you do from both sides. Now try alternating. You don't rush this. Just getting your mind to work on both sides. Same time she'll be going. Right. Left, Left, right, right. Left left, Frank, Catch. You should do this 10 times in a row without moving your feet without reaching out like crazy. Once you can do that, you're ready for three. All right? You have the third ball. Do not freak out to be confident if you could do this really well, like we were working on, you can do the first step of learning. Three. A three ball flash is making free throws and three catches so that we're gonna start with. And that's what you need to perfect. Before you go on the next step. So just like you were doing before you go, right, Left, right, left. You're just holding that third run for now. Right? Left. Thanks. When that second ball hits its peace, there is when you're throw the third ball. So right, left, right, right, left, right, right, left, right, Catch. So when you throw the first ball when it had to take a second ball when the second boat, the speakers, When you throw the ball through a little bit higher, you need for a little extra time with higher throws of or inaccurate. They're going to be really want to find that sweet spot around your heads level gold. That's going well. What? You could do that 10 times in a row. You guessed it. Yes. You're gonna start with your left hand to your left hand and your right hand left. Right, left. Okay, left, right, left, catch. Left, right, left, Catch. Work on that until you can do it 10 times in a row. And then yes, you get this, we're gonna alternate. So right, left, right, Catch left, right, left, right. All right. Once you can do that 10 times in a row without moving your feet without reaching all over the place, you're ready to go for 1/4 throw in a court. Catch right. Let's right. Left, right, right, right. Left, right, left. Even the whole time, the heights should not change too much. Keep your arms at your side. Four catches over and over again. He go for five. That's easy for you. And then you just want to keep building on that. I have a number in mind and get to that number. Do not just juggle until you drop that you're learning that's gonna help you develop really bad happens, which is not something you want. So think of a number and get to it and make it perfect field. Do it 10 times in a row and then stop clean. So let's talk about some of a common problem people have when I learned a struggle. And the number one thing is that people throw on the outside of the next ball like that. And so when they jungle from the side, it looks like this, or it looks like this because they're walking all over the place. You don't want to walk around. You want to go to do with your feet planted. And so the biggest thing here is making sure you're making in inward scoops instead of outward, scooped and throwing back to you. You want to pretend like you're juggling in a hallway and the ball they're only going from left to right, keeping in the whole way, as opposed to going away from you and coming back. So you keep it in the hallway. They shouldn't cross the line. They're just going left to right and right to left and again. That's making inward scoop at the next fall's coming Your hands, your hands are constantly doing this motion as opposed to this another common mistake. People are going way fashion, and I think it used to be. They get the third ball and they do that. They flash all three in the air when in reality it's pretty slow. So really watched me do this and look at how slow it is, how much time you have in between each throw. But there's a lot more time than you think and really work on that, even timing so that the same from both sides. Do not rush to not feel like you need to always be keeping free in the air, because that's really hard. But then there's the opposite and that that's the people that hold on to it to the very last second. And so that's waiting until the very last second to throw their next ball like this. And so they really slow. But it makes pretty inaccurate throws, and so you really want to throw that next ball one to hit its peak in the air. So when it stops going up and starts going down, that's when it hits its peak. That's when you throw the next ball. So once you can juggle three balls comfortably, you can start working on your throw height so it could be slightly higher. Slightly lower doesn't get more comfortable with the three ball cascade, and then you can start working on some moves or some tricks. I'll be talking about some beginner tricks in a future lesson, but here's a quick montage to get too excited. - Thank you for watching good luck learning how to juggle three balls. Hopefully, this was helpful were new to school shirt, but we've got a lot more coming soon. So check out our other videos or other lessons, and we've got more coming soon, so stay tuned. 2. How To Juggle 4 Balls: Welcome back, everybody. My name is Josh. Important. And today's lesson. We're going to learn how to juggle four balls. Only watching this lesson, if you already know how to trouble three very well for is much more difficult than juggling three balls. So if you can't do, let's say 100 catches. No problem with three balls. Don't try telling for violence just yet. All right to start with four balls. First, let's talk about the pattern you're going to do with. A lot of people don't realize this, but juggling four balls in the most basic pattern is to in your right hand into in your left hand. Nothing crosses. These two balls will stay in my right hand. These two balls stay in my left hand. Nothing crosses. So the most basic pattern in and a sink pattern looks like this foreign sink Looks like this. I'm just starting with a sink pattern because then you're only worrying about one throw or one catch at a time. Not worrying about making too much is at the same time. It may be a little bit more difficult, depending on your skill thing. I think just most learning for balls is to get very comfortable juggling two in your right hand and then very comfortable juggling two in your left hand. This is gonna take a lot of practice. Just what I just showed you that is going to be the next several hours of practice for you , your brand new four balls if you're right handed a lot. Milken do this pretty easily, but it's the left hand is gonna give you problems and vice versa. So I would suggest you go train your non dominant hand with two in one hand, but you want that pattern to be correct. What I mean by that is an inward, outward circle. Have you noticed it is making an oval shape with the ball going from inside to the outside and it repeats Same with your left hand inside out, And so each hand is going out and back, so that feels good from me, right? And your left hand. It is time to try all four together, and we'll start with just a flash. You'll remember from the free. Both destroy all that means. Four throws and four catches were now working four balls, and it looks like this right, left, right, left, right, left, right, Left. A lot of the same principles from the three bucks royal are applied here. When the ball reaches its peak is when you know the next fall. So as soon as that ball goes from moving upward to move downwards, you throw the next one could, right and your left, you're going for those four catches. You want to work on this? Don't super easy. You can do it 10 times in a row, no problem, and then try starting your left hand this whole time. We're keeping the same body position we do with three balls. Your feet shoulder width apart, A slight bend your knees. You can make minor adjustments, but trying not step forward a step back to make it throws and catches on. Always keep your elbows pretty close to your body. We'll help you make the same throws over and over again. When you're feeling good about the flash, you can go for six catches. So at two more throws, right, left, right, left, right, left and they just keep building on it. Like I said, with three balls, you don't want to just always juggle until you drop, you wanna have a number in mind, get that number and stop so you're always work out Perfect form. You're not developing bad habits but learning to struggle by walking all over the place and making terrible throws and terrible catches. One of the biggest problems I see with four balls is that people they start juggling and the balls come close together, and then they collide like that just happened, and something that will help. This is if you slightly point your elbows out so instead of straight forward because it needs to make those inward circles, you won't be moving inward of your elbows are at a slight angle out, and then you're constantly making that correction to where your elbows will never move. Pattern will never move, and that way you won't get those collisions in the middle of your pattern. You watch me juggle four balls. My face is never blocked by the juggling balls. There's always these two to the right in my face. He's to the left, and you want to keep that space in between there. Otherwise, you'll get into those collisions. If you're feeling good about the A think pattern or you need a break from that. It is okay to start working on the sink pattern. All the same. Principles apply, but you're throwing two at a time and catching two at a time. But the big thing here is you really want to make sure throw heights are the same. Whether you're juggling a sing or sing, you want to throw heights to be the same in the entire time. Otherwise you'll get off off your pattern and it will become uneven and you'll mess up especially sink. You want work on getting the throw heights exactly the same with four balls. Whether you're seeing or a think, it should be about heads level or so and then, if you're really feeling good with both patterns, you can work on throwing either one throw higher, one throw low and your transition from sing Daisy. So I'm throwing a think actively throw one a little bit higher. There's a pause, and then it goes to sink the same thing. After one little higher, there's a pause. Go back to basics. So there's a few other things that people who are learning four balls struggle with, and instead of talking about those I thought I would bring on someone who is currently working on four balls. My YouTube partner, Jake Triplet. Hello, Jake. Uh, Jake's been working on four balls for a while now, and I have been kind of bad friend and YouTube partner by giving you very little tip. So this is good that this is happening with first time doing so let's just first just see what you got. No pressure. They'll just you try to catch for That's pretty good. A little high and a little slow. You could throw a little bit faster, faster, but lower to the ground, right, left, right, left. Look pretty good. That's good. So see the 1st 2 throws a good in the second to are starting to come closer. That's what I'm talking about. You slightly angle your hands out like this That will help you keep keep the pattern between the 22 on the right to left from colliding, so don't think about too much. It's a slight yes, light outward. And so they your circles are going this way instead of moving closer together. But maybe worse. You kind of keep your elbows touching your people don't touching but pretty close to your body an entire time. Good. Really good. Right now, Jake is right handed. So he's definitely struggled on the left. Handed to right are really solid, the same high every time. But his left hand is the one that is sometimes there and lower, sometimes throwing higher. And that is the one that's coming in and colliding with the right side of juggling pattern . So my biggest tip to Jake would be to work on that for a very long time and work on it without keep your elbow in. You keep you, keep your blood and just do that. Don't let across the side. You keep it. Like I said, very beginning this tutorial. This is probably what you need to go work on the most. Help your floor ball pattern if you're struggling four balls and you could not juggle two in your left hand easily, or your your non dominant hand easily without crossing your face without walking a little place. That is what you need to be working on. And once you get that solid, it makes your floor ball pattern so much so thanks for watching one go practice. Go work on those hands individually and then together. Once you're feeling good, we will end this with a little inspiration for you. Some awesome four ball struggling for after you've mastered the basic theme. - Thanks for watching everybody. Hope you have a good time practicing this. We've got more tutorials, more lessons coming right here on skill share. So make sure you stay tuned. We'll see you soon. 3. Beginner 3 Ball Juggling Tricks 1-5: What is that for everyone and welcome back to our skill share. Today's video is going to be 10 beginner, three ball moves or tricks. He's watching this lesson. If you've already mastered the three ball cascade, feel very good, very comfortable with the three ball cascade, and you're ready for some tricks where it started very simple and then work our way up to more difficult moves. But if you feel comfortable with your three ball pattern, they are all very achievable. If you put the practice in, first up, is it outside throw or over the top throw? And that is just doing the opposite of a inward scoop and throwing on the outside. So it looks like dance from the right that from the left were first learning this. Try it with just two balls and throwing normal 1st 1 on the outside. You want to work on your right and your left side same time, so a normal first. Throw an outside second throw. Once that feels good, you can go back to your three ball cascade, and when you would normally make it inward scoop, you just throw on the outside like so if you make the same ball go back and forth. That's called tennis. That so that's a bonus trick. That's not on my list of 10 but that is a bonus trick. But here is the next move, the next trick, if you do it all from one side. So every right handed throw isn't over the top. This is called half shower. To learn the half shower, you have already measured a single over the top throw and then work on two in a row. Right? Right. That's feeling good. Do three for. And don't forget the other side. Keep working on it. Keep building on it until you have it down. And no problem. Just like this next up is taking the same skill The same, uh, over the top for me. Right over the top. Print left so you can do half sharply. Right? And half start from your left. You put him together. That is reversed. Cascade three ball tutorial. I told you. You always making inward scooping throws. This is the exact opposite and you're only making outside scooping throws a ball, starting on the outside and coming in. This is one you as you're learning it you could start cold if that's easier for you. So instead of transitioning from a normal pattern to the outside, those you going to start with outside throws right away might make a little easier to relearn the three ball pattern by starting with a flash. 123 123 123 and so on and so forth. But once you feel good about trying to work on that transition from going from normal struggling traverse cascade back to normal casket. Another beginner move is under the leg. This is a trick. A lot of people learn for their very first trick. So let's break it down really quickly. The big thing here with this move and the next movement and talk about it, you're moving the juggling balls around your body. You're not gonna adjust your pattern for the trick. You're just gonna just your body around. So the trick under leg most basic way looks like this. That is my right hand. Under my right leg. You can do the opposite, which is your left hander left leg. You do right? Left all that for now. Let's just work on your right hand under your right leg and you'll see the pattern does not change at all. Right, left, right, left, right, left, right, left, right, left, right, left, right, left. So the timing does not change. You not need to throw a high throat. You do not need extra time. You could do that all. You have to start to bring up your leg as you're making your throw and dip your hand a little bit lower than you normally go and make a normal toss. Do not adjust your pattern heights at all. It's just a slightly lower throat, but bringing your buying down a little bit. Or just if you're flexible and you're not wearing skinny jeans like I am, you could just throw under that leg. So again, looks like this were right. Or you can work on on your left leg with your right hand on your left leg, right leg with your left hand, and then you can start to mix it up. Good luck. Next up is behind the back or a cross, and that is very similar as far as patterns concerned to the under the leg booth or like this. And eventually if you work on it for a long time. You could get it to where it's not just one thrive time, but where it's every throw behind the best again. You do not need to throw an extra high throat to give yourself extra time. You want to hold on the ball as long as you can see I'm not releasing until the boss. The ball is about here and you want to come over your shoulder. The background throw will be a little bit higher than your normal throws. It might put a little bit of a stagger in your pattern and you throw, but you get better at it. It could be a lower and a lower throw, so once you could feel good about doing one, you can try throwing two at a time from your right hand, one to or too time you left hand three building on it or another really good skill. The work on a good drill is to take the same ball and have that ball be behind back every time, so right and take it back and again. The biggest thing here is toe hold onto the ball for almost as long as possible. You want to really have your hand and your arm do the main work, not the actual throat, So do not released until your hands already back there. One tip, I was told is you don't want to have a whole here when you're making your throat. Do you have a hole here? That means you're throwing it too early. Do you want your you want throwing with no gas in the army is throwing from. Eventually you'll be able to get to where it's every single TRO. It's a really great looking tricked looks awesome once you can do with every single throat , so get practicing. 4. Beginner 3 Ball Juggling Tricks 6-10 : is a column. This is a very easy trick. It's one of the tricks I teach first to juggling students and calms. Looks like this. So it is called columns because balls stay in their own columns. Nothing is crossing when you break it down. This hand is doing this just two in one hand. But unlike when you learn for there is no circle that is just saying in their columns, and the other hand is just doing that. But you gotta sink it up with the other bomb the outside. This is a really good movie toe work on starting cold so you don't need to start from juggling patent. You start with the one in middle throw and then get to on the outside. So one of middle to on the outside I just work on that. Oh, that feels comfortable. And then throw the one right back up. So 1 to 1 catch 1 to 1 cash, really trying to focus on those two outside throws to make them the same height. So they're going up and down together 1 to 1. Catch 1 to 1121 catch and keep building on that 1212 1212 1212212 When you're feeling good , the transition from the troubling pattern two columns is actually pretty easy, because all you have to do is throw that one in the middle and then your engine column. So instead of totally crossing a ball, I can only when you just throw it in the middle. So if you want to work on one start, it would just be 12 back to pattern. So non crossing the pair and then the next one to go back to across 12 12 12 And then again , you can start to build on this, and there's lots of varieties on this trip. Once you learned calms, you could do two on one side. Bring them over doing the other. You can take the one, Spin it all around. Call this trick that smiley face. There's another side flops that similar ideas. So it's a really good trick to learn, and once you learned it, there's a lot of variations on it. So get practicing and good luck with columns next up way. Have a basic multiplex throw. Multiplex is any throw and juggling where you're throwing more than one ball at once. Trick. I'm actually looks like this we've done from either side. This chick is super simple, and it's really easy to master. All you have to do is stop juggling flecked, too, and you throw the one at the two and thrown together. The only part that's a little tricky is learning how to throw a pair to where they land in the right places, and that just takes a little bit of getting used to. But you want to catch him like this. But then when you throw him, you want them kind of in a row like that so that one stays over in the right side and one crosses your left hand. When you do the trick, you could make it look really smooth when you break it down. All it is is this that and that, so you don't need to throw that left handed throw so quickly. But you do. It makes it look really smooth, like the trick never stops. But really, all you're doing is stopping, juggling, throwing the one drunk, too, and going back to back and again. That's a cool variations on this you can do to under leg or behind the back. And speaking of columns, this is another really cool trick to go into columns. So once you've matched with these two, you can go from two and then immediately transition nicely into columns. Look at that. So see if you can combine those two together. Next up is the juggling net catch, and that is throwing a ball up. Catching it on your neck is a really cool way to end your jump on routines to endure sequence, tie end. A lot of my performances on looks great, and the audiences know that your performance is done, but it can also be mid tricks. If you catch it on your neck, throw it back up team. Continue juggling, which is also good. One big thing here is to soften catches like if you're catching an egg, you want to do some giving with the throw. That's what you want to do with your neck so it's coming down. You don't just want to hit you in the head going down. You're gonna cushion it. You're gonna point your head up so that there's a little pocket back and your neck. If you're if you're headed down, it's gonna roll off. Weight beheaded is it's gonna create a little place for it to stay right there. So once you catch it, you stand up and put your hand here. Or you can start to work on flicks like that were you Put your head down and then up to the last second. So then, in a juggling pattern, you throw it high, throw under, and then either look it up like that or just do the finish, stand up and catch it behind your back like so. But if you're really good, this is one of my tricks that I do in my three ball. Racine is I turn it into a bit of a cascade, every throw on my next. Next. This ones were getting tricky. This is the shower pattern. This is the pattern that a lot of people think normal juggling is because this is how it's portrayed in the movies and cartoons, and that is like this. A lot of people want to start drilling this, but it is much more difficult than your three ball cascade, so pay attention, so just like a normal doubling pattern. You're going to start with you in your right one year left. You're gonna throw a ball kind of like a outside throw like we worked on before, followed by another outside throw. And as you're throwing that second throw, you're also going to zip one across three left here, right? It is a slight downward angle like this, and you really want to put some energy behind it. So that's gonna look like this. It's kind of follow the leader type of field. It's all gonna be going in a circle. I suggest having your dominant hand being the one that's doing the throws and your non dominant doing zip across. So some people do it exactly in sync. I like there to be a little bit of a delay between your second right handed throat and the zip across, but some people, for exact same, but again, just work on this flash to start one that's feeling good. Try to zip across. So this is the one place where I allow my juggling students to work on this fake to ball shower that everyone says, Oh, I could double to on that is just to work on that zip throw from left to right, and to really be able to get the speed and the energy going, it is not a total hand across. Your hands are not touching. They're not clapping. You want there to be some space in between and work on getting the speed and the energy of it up with two balls. If you're struggling with three like everything we've talked about, you could start to build on your flash. See you do three right handed throws and three tips. 45 for eventually you can get it going. What, as you're learning, you could be a little bit higher than your head and you get more comfortable. You want to be nice and tight right here. It's not gonna be a perfect circle a lot. You'll think this needs to be like a total circle, but it is much easier if there's a slight downward slant of your zip just like this. Look, last trick we're going to work on in this lesson. Take some of skills from shower pattern, but this is called the box pattern that looks like this. You see, it's called Box because it makes a box. This one's a good one to break down because it's very easy to replicate 1/2 of the box at a time. So with just two balls, you could work on a zip and catch. So one your left hand is gonna throw straight after your right hand is going through across catch the to like that The same over here. So right hand go. Sure, that left hand across the next step is to do that. But then sit back. So is it is it And then from over here and working alternating.

Everybody In this lesson, I'm going to do how to juggle five balls. If you cannot comfortably juggle three and four Do not watch this tutorial. Do not watch this lesson. Go back and watch my other skill share videos to prepare yourself for five. Even though it's is for five, we're gonna start with three. I've got three exercises to work on with three to master before you can move on to the exercises with four before you can move on to five. So here are those 33 ball exercises. First exercise is doing a single flash like that of three balls where you have no balls in your hand for just a 2nd 3 year being thrown at the height and the speed of five balls in the second exercise. Once you're ready, is to connect flashes. So you're going right? Left, right, left, right, left, right, left, right, left, right, left, right, left, right, left. Work on that. These air two drills that is gonna help you with your speed. Your control at that height. Help you get ready for five balls. The next drills will fall of leader. What you're gonna do is. Start with three balls in one hand and throw them like that. Justo, warm up just to get you ready for this trick. What? That feels easy. You're tossing back before you catch the 2nd 3rd ball. So it looked like this. Every balls thrown in the exact same height, which is a five ball height. And then see if you can keep a gun free throws in a row on your left. 3000 road, right? Basically, this is the five pattern with two holes in it, so you're juggling in a five mile pattern, but only with three balls. So perfect that before you move on to these four ball drills. The 1st 4 volt drill is a four ball crossing flash, so usually four balls juggled in a fountain like I taught you in a previous video. But if you cross them, it looks like that. Stop. Just go for four catches, right, left right, left drug starting her left hand. These are all thrown in a five ball height a little bit above your head. Once that is feeling good and again, you have to be comfortable four balls before you start trying. Five. Try going front fountain, right? Four crossing throws and, in fact, found right, left, right, left, right, left, right, left back to try starting your left hand. It's like that The last exercise is to start running those together, connecting them. So then it becomes five balls with one hole instead of two, like we're doing with the three ball drill. So it looked like this. Every throws, same height, same speed. There's just one pause, which is where that ball will finally go. I work on that for a while before you pick up that ball. You ready? Trying five fall slash five throws, same height, same feet we've been doing with these three ball four ball exercises, right? Let's start with your dominant hand. It's really good starting their non dominant hand. Nice and easy or elbows are gonna be signing your body like everything we've talked to and juggling. Then just try alternating back and forth. So starting right, starting with your left, right and so on. Once you could do the flash alternating which, and you start with 10 times in a row, you're ready to start adding onto that, I think over six throws, seven throws a throws again. I've said this before. Always have a number of throws in mind. Don't just juggle until you drop. That is going to cause a lot of problems. The biggest problem I see you feel drumming five balls. They have their elbows really far out. They think because it's so many more ball, they need to be making bigger throws and using more strength or wherever with their arms. And not necessarily. You want to be making the same throw over and over again. And the best way to do that is to keep your elbows at the side of your body and making the same throw or pretty close to it every single time. Do not have your elbows out. Keep the nice and tight good posture. Don't move your feet all over the place and just work on slowly adding onto that flash. Try to keep your pattern narrow. You don't want to wide and just like we learned three balls, you don't want the ball to be coming back to you. You don't want throw them out and then back. Everything is going left to right, right to left in that hallway as I like to call it. So practice those drills. Five balls took me about three months of working on it every day. Some people learn faster or something learned it's lower. But if you if you really work on these drills, you practice perfect form. I know you guys get it. Leave a comment. If you have any questions, all get back to you. Thanks, guys. More videos coming soon. 6. How To Juggle 3 Clubs: Hello, everyone, welcome back to my skill share today. I'm gonna teach you how to juggle three clubs. It's going pretty quick tutorial because clubs, unlike balls that they're pretty weird object. It's not something people used it throwing, too. So practice is really important, just getting used to how this prop moves in the air. It just takes some getting used to. If you conjugate three balls, super solid 100 catches, no problem. You can learn three clubs in a matter of weeks, but it's just about getting used to how it flips and have moves. I'm gonna give you some of my tips and tricks toe. Try to learn a lot faster. Hopefully, this helps. First off, people are always asking about which clubs to use. Quick breakdown. Of the two types of clubs, there are one piece clubs and then multi piece clubs. One piece club is usually much cheaper. It just means that is molded out of one piece of plastic. A multi piece club means that there's several pieces that go into it. Like this club, like this one, has a wooden dowel through it. There's plastic. This handle is different from the body, which is gives a little softer grip and the plastic clubs, while they're cheaper, they might hurt your hands a little more, but also never break. So there's advantages and disadvantages to both of them. I double the Henrys Dalton's. They're one of the cheaper clubs out there, but they're my favorite. They are. They're kind of the cheapest multi piece club you can buy. You could get them on my website juggling warehouse dot com if you're interested. Another good set of clubs are anything from play PX three PX floors are other club that I really like. Um, and then the ZQ clubs on the website are very, very good for the price. They look really nice and are quite cheap. So you can check all those that, like anything we're gonna start with just one club just to get a fuel for it. All the same rules guidelines my tips for any juggling, apply to clubs like they have with everything else and keeping your elbows in having good body position and we're gonna work on one steady throw back and forth should be about that level little higher, a slight with every okay to help you make an N word scoop instead of an outward scoop. You don't want to get yourself in the face. When I was in third grade, I gave myself a bloody lip when I was learning clubs and just get used to throwing things. New object There are two main variables with how you throw a juggling club. It is your arms and your wrist. Your risk controls, how much spin you put on it and your arms controls. How much lock or height throw on it. So you want to find a balance between how hard you're flipping, versus how high you're throwing and those two things you can work on. Some of its it's throwing. It's not rotating enough. That means you need to add a little bit more, risked a little bit more. Flip to it. And if it's going to high, let's arms and you should be moving around too much anyway. Do you really want to find a balance with how much you're moving your arm talent. You're clicking your wrist. Hopefully grab that second club and just like we learned two balls right, left catch, catch and cause Don't rush right, left right, left catch in left, right, left, right. Try alternating. Okay, that's easy. Even do it many times in a row. You can try on the third club. One thing that people struggle with this have to hold two clubs. You really want to put the club? You're gonna throw first on top of the other club. Sometimes you can separate them one finger if you do. I don't like to do that. I like to have the first club just between my thumb, my hand, and then the other one tells my other fingers. And then I use that to throw and release that first club. You want to be pretty choked up on. The club's about halfway up the handle, if not a little bit more. Sometimes I have one finger here. A lot of people when they when they start their they're holding down here and that that's a good way to hit yourself in the face to make sure you choked up on all three clubs about this part of the handle and then go for just two throws so you can work on catching that second club. There's gonna be a little hard, so just go right left. Try to catch while you're holding all three. What you do that go for three throws a flash, Right, Left, right. We left hand right, left and then just build on. You guys have watched my the Toro's. You know how I like to teach the revolving same day. Don't just juggle until you dropped. Find it number and stops. You can keep your perfect form if you work on it. If you practice these drills, you practice every day again. It took me a long time. I learned three clubs, but I practice a lot and, uh, if you put the time, you'll figure it out. Good luck.
