I would like to be able to juggle three Indian clubs as well as I can juggle three balls. 5 years ago

Getting kind of better with one club and two balls. Can flash more often than yesterday and doing a little more than just flashing. Good good 5 years ago
Forgot to say I gave it a go yesterday with three clubs. Nearly managed a flash. Dropped them a lot, but thankfully didn’t hit myself :) 5 years ago
Tried a different approach today, using one club and two balls. I’m slowly but surely getting there. Managed a flash or two, which was really encouraging, but then it started to rain, so…more tomorrow. Fingers crossed for no rain 5 years ago
I have now bought myself clubs, so when they arrive, I will start learning :D I’m looking forward to this… 5 years ago
I’ve been lax in practicing (again). Decided that I should get out at least once this week. Spent some time with two balls and one club, getting the hang of it again. I can do a run of about 16-17 before dropping. Not great, but better than last summer.
I decided to try two clubs, one ball. I didn’t have much luck, dropping props left and right. For the heck of it, I tried with just clubs. To my surprise, I flashed on my third or fourth try. I tried a few more times, but couldn’t do it again. Going back to two clubs and one ball, though, I was able to run 3 or 4 times before dropping.
I’ll keep practicing with one club, two balls, and two clubs, one ball some more. 5 years ago
I haven’t been getting far with two clubs. The fact that it’s been raining on the days I’m not working hasn’t helped either, as I don’t have space inside to practice.
The weather was nice after work today though, so I had a bit of time in the back yard. I decided to try a different approach to learning clubs.
My daughter attends circus camp each summer. Last year, when I dropped her off, I noticed one of the instructors teaching one of the children how to do clubs. The girl could already run a three ball cascade with no problem, so the instructor challenged her to replace one of the balls with a club instead. Once she had that down, she swapped a second ball for a club. Within half an hour, she was juggling a three club cascade.
At the time, I chalked it up to the power of being 12 years old. This afternoon, though, the memory came back to me, so I gave it a try. I didn’t make it to three clubs (yet), but I was able to do a decent run of two balls and a single club within about 10 minutes.
Tomorrow is World Juggling Day, so I’ve promised myself that I would spend at least an hour juggling, so I should be able to get in some more practice. 5 years ago
Added a second club today. Going much more smoothly than the last time I attempted to learn clubs. 6 years ago
Started tossing a single club over the weekend. When I get to a point where I can comfortably make 50 catches, I’ll add a second club. 6 years ago
I’ve been juggling balls for about a year now, doing some three and four ball tricks, and I just got clubs for Christmas….Wow
A – This is fun
B – I can’t quite get all three moving at the same time.
C – OWW! My hands hurt.
Note to others – I just read, (too late, I’d learned the hard way) that taking all rings
off first avoids a lot of pain!
Off I go to try again! 6 years ago
I seem to be competent enough with a single club, but then again I don’t thank that it’s really difficult. What I do have trouble with is keeping the rotation even, as soon as one spins too much or not enough I overcompensate with the next and everything turns to custard. 6 years ago
...of practice and I can officially juggle clubs. 17 throws and catches, I call that juggling. It’s not necessarily smooth, or elegant, and I have to walk about a bit following the clubs (I blame the wind!), but I can do it.
And I only got hit in the face 4 times (one time made my lip bleed tho) and my thumb is really sore (I mashed it between 2 clubs).
So, lots more practice required, but this is done! 6 years ago
YEAHH! Finally I successfully juggled clubs two days ago! But I wanna keep it on my list until I can do it confidently… Then it’s on to knives and fire clubs… :p
IT IS SO MUCH FUN! 6 years ago
As per my entry from, oh, a few months ago, I am making my own clubs. Yay! I just bought the various kinds of tape required this evening. All I need is enough newspaper and I’ll be beating down the door named “checking this goal off the list”!! Right on. 6 years ago
Before rushing off to the e-store to buy clubs, I just might try making my own to get the technique first… here’s the link I just found, in case anybody else is interested! http://www.crazytieguy.com/clubs.htm 7 years ago
I keep seeing that commerical where everybody in the office and at home are juggling everyday kinds of objects. I see them using the club style for the longer objects and think ‘man, I wanna do that too’. I’ve decided, it’s gonna happen this summer. Hurrah – a goal for my goal! 7 years ago
I am determined to learn how to juggle clubs this summer. I tried a couple summers ago, but I didn’t have any of my own so it was hard to practice. I think Higgins Brothers sells them online. My first paycheque this summer… is going toward juggling clubs. 7 years ago
I’m not sure how to get into this. I’ve never tried it and so far haven’t found an outlet or resource for juggling within the city. Then again, I haven’t looked beyond the internet yet.
It seems like a great added dimension to the entire juggling realm. :) Sounds like I need to find me some clubs! 7 years ago
I can do a few catches but i just can't seem to get fluent... any tips? 7 years ago
once you do clubs, balls just seem kinda boring. it’s like…drinking nothing but water your whole life, and then having a sip of mountain dew. you can’t just go back to water. =) 7 years ago
If you enjoy juggling beanbags/balls, do not pass GO but rather proceed straight to clubsville.
Honestly folks, it’s the bomb – with enough patience it becomes just as comfortable and natural as conventional juggling.
Plus, there’s something so much more gratifying about the satisfying “thwack” of a club handle landing squarely in the palm of your hand.
Oh, and passing clubs is surreal – things just flying everywhere and somehow being able to pluck em mid-air and maintain the rhythm just feels incredible. 8 years ago
It didn’t take all that long to learn, and I even juggled flaming torches. 8 years ago
Get some decent, light clubs.
With some practice it really isn’t any harder than balls. 8 years ago
I can juggle balls, cantelope and onions like no bodies business- but I have short arms. Juggling clubs, stay rolling some of the time and some of the time just wack the XXXX out of my head and nose….OW 8 years ago
