Juggling anyone?


Nak belajar Juggling tak?

Download this instructional videos and practise at your own pace. You don't have to be a clown to learn the skills. Anyone can take up juggling. From that makcik in London to that man with white kopiah in Pandan. (hehehe.....sapa tu?)

Benefits? It helps you to focus and concentrate on your task and I have read somewhere that it helps to reduce stress. And you can use in your exercise routines too. Run and juggling routine anyone?

You don't have juggling balls? No worries. If you go to IKEA, I believe you can get rubber balls for RM10 ( check the price first!). I am using juggling beans (RM35 for set 0f three balls). Kalau nak let me know. I can get it for you. But if you are really really broke, 3 biji oranges or apples will do.

I never take juggling classes during my University of Wisconsin-La Crosse's Clown Camp stint and learnt by myself through this wonderful instructional videos by The Jim Show. It took me 2-3 months or so to be able to juggle with confidence.

Now, I am quite OK with classic cascading style and looking forward to learn more interesting styles.

Jom Juggling!

i've always wanted to juggle. another to add to the list 'things to do before I'm 30'.

MakNenek said...

Dr. Bubbles, thank you for the link! Boleh lah aku belajar juggle sekarang. Besok karang gi Ikea carik bola.. Sebab si Jim tu kata, bila dah dapat bola, baru boleh tengok video seterusnya

Is, bola tu kena cap IKEA je ke?? Cap lain tak boleh ke??

drbubbles said...

naj: don't write it on your list. just get three oranges and start practise!

maknenek: I can imagine you start juggling tomatoes and lemons in your kitchen!

drbubbles said...

ish ish..any balls can do. not necessarily IKEA.

after a while i found Ikea a bit lighter now and chances are the balls will fly away/bounce.

do settles with heavier one. oranges? - cari yang inedible. unfortunately it is only available in northern iran..hehehe..

tips 1: as long you can hold two balls comfortably at one hand and one on the other ( this happens when you are confident enough to throw and catch 3 balls).

tips 2: start practicing in front of a wall. that will helps to keep you from "walking".

Woohooo way to go iskandar!! I learnt to juggle when I was twelve but can never do more than three! How many can you successfully juggle?

another tip: juggle with two balls first i.e. throw 1, throw 2, catch 1, catch 2... until you're used to it then simply add the 3rd ball and voila!

drbubbles said...

ijun,

me three balls now. am trying to use different styles. luckily for me my clown friend, Sam Tee lives nearby. so I can always go to his house to learn new skills from him.

the hardest things is to include comedy routine in it.

another tip to add on on yours, throw the balls in criss cross pattern. easy.

MakNenek said...

eh, how you did u guess Dr. Bubbles? I actually tried it today with mandarin oranges... keh keh keh.. (they are for the guests :P )

drbubbles said...

maknenek,

kau jgn juggle anak kau sudah!

Op said...

kusyi said...

alamak berterabuq ah is. by the way, do you miss me... ahakkkk

CikNi said...

patutnya ia boleh release stress tapi takut tak boleh nak buat nanti jadi lagiiii stress, amacam?

drbubbles said...

cikni: hahaha..i think it is a perfect time to see your psychiatrist. hhehe

op: keep throwing!no matter what.
I jog almost everyday at Bukit Indah Forest Reserve and it is kind of ritual for me to practise my juggling after my jogging.

kusyi: hehe..cover cover cover...if you know what i meant
