...and More Jugglers


Hi! I'm a 36 year old mom (American) married to a French man living in Tokyo with 2 boys. I belong to a theatre group called Tokyo Theatre for Children and I just got cast in the lead of "The Emperor's new Clothes". I play a character named Peter (yes, I'm playing a boy...)who plays the con man/tailor who weaves the invisible clothes. For this role, the director wanted to me to learn how to juggle. He tried to teach me Monday after rehearsal, but of course it was not pretty. We were trying with hard plastic toys which didn't make things any easier. So Monday night I got on the Net and found your site. You recommended soft juggling balls. Lo and behold, at the AM/PM they are selling Diet Coke with a Hacky Sac/juggling ball with every can. So today, (Tuesday Japan time) I picked up 3 cans of Diet Coke, got on your site and followed the directions. Not 30 minutes later I was juggling! NOT well, and not very smoothly, but doing a couple of 3 ball exchanges in a row! Tomorrow (Wednesday) I have rehearsal again and won't the director be surprised to see me juggling after 2 days! thaks for putting up your site. The directions are really well laid out and the animation REALLY helps. I should be a pro in a couple of days! The play runs March-April so I have plenty of time to learn how to do 4 balls....I'll let you know how it goes!


Thank you so much for teaching me how to juggle. I' ve wanted to know how for years and finally i can just about do it!! When sorting out my room i found 2 juggling balls and another similar size and weight ball. I started to work out how to juggle by myself but i really needed some help. Then i had a great idea; the internet! So when i typed in 'how to juggle' in to google, up came your website and after 20mins i've pretty much cracked it. (although i can never quite get passed the 4th rotation, but im sure i'll soon get it!!) I'm now going to go and do some practice and soon i shall be able to show off to friends and family. Thanks for your help

keith Jackson

Hey man this really helped. I didnt practice much besides the first two days where I got the concept and knew what I was aiming for. I could get the rotation in but only once. I would say a good few weeks went by and know I can actually juggle. Major improvement should when I switched from tennis balls to actual juggling balls. Anyway I just wanted to say thanks.


Your instructions are really good and the motion pictures help a lot to.

aneeta kaitinis

I learned to juggle 4 balls today... i had been juggling 3 balls for about 4 years on and off; picked up 4 in about 15 minutes! thanks a lot!

Hey man, your instructons were so helpful. My mom got me a juggling book for Christmas, but I needed some extra help. I'm learning to juggle for a medieval unit in one of my classes. I'm dressing up as a jester and juggling adds a nice touch. So far, I can only do two times all the way through, but I'm getting there. Thanks!

Conan Wall

I learned how to juggle in like 40 minutes with your page. I was trying to figure it out on my own Ėthat would have taken forever.... Thanks a bunch, I am still rough at it, Iíve only done like 5 completions in a row, but itís a start. Youíve got a great web page. I surprised my family this morning with my new acquired trick!! Merry Christmas


i learnt to juggle thanks to your site :o)


Very nice website! I learned to juggle from your site! I always wanted to learn and then one day I said to myself "The internet has everything these days. Surely they'll have a lesson on how to juggle?" I looked in a search engine and sure enough I found your site!

William Nutt

Thank you!


I learned to juggle in 2 days by watching your demostration on the internet. Thanks!

Middle Tennessee

I have always wanted to learn how to juggle, so one night when I was bored, I did a google search for how to juggle. I learned how to juggle baseballs that night, and the next day I did 122 rotations with 3 basketballs. The hard part with them is that they give your arms a workout with their weight. So thanks

abi bacca

It took me ages to learn but it was worth the patience. At last I can finally do something that alot of people can't. I just want to thank you so much for helping me learn to juggle. I will be advising your web address to all my friends. Thanks again

I am working in an computer company in Switzerland. In our office a challenge started with juggling. The challenge was to be able to juggle in such a way as almost no regular person could. We found out that quite a few people could do some juggling with two balls. We could also find a few who could juggle with 3 balls. No one in the office could juggle with 4 though. It was then defined that the challenge should be to juggle with 4 balls for at least 30 sec. It is now 3 months later. The 30 sec. was broken today. Though not by me, I came very close and also consider my self capable of juggling with 4 balls. I found your web site of great help in this challenge and thought I would let you know. The 30 sec. was broken by my colleague Philipp Hagedorn. It was great fun. Thanks a lot

Please add my name to your jugglers page. I've probably had half a dozen people explain to me how to juggle over the years, but it was your animation that finally made it click. It took me about 4 days, a couple hours a night, but I spent 2 days on step 4. I just couldn't seem to get past that 3rd pass, but I as you suggested, I just took and step back and worked on the fundamentals. The best moment was when I showed my 5 yr old daughter what I'd learned and she said, "Daddy, Daddy! You're like a clown!"


I want to thank you for teaching me the steps to juggle with three balls.I really preaciate it.


Hello, you've shown a few variations on juggling the 4 ball challenge. Is throwing the 4 balls in each column considered another pattern? Or is a variation and a patterm different terminology in the juggling art form? I've recently learned the 3 ball figure eight through your online personal website two days ago, but I'm working on not drifting. I've been watching "La Cirque" is there any juggler you know of that can perform a 8 ball pattern? Do you think there's a Book out there that knows how long ago and who invented this art? Your fan, you've made life more of a challenge and game.

Greetings i found your instructions on the web regarding juggling. And saw your request that we write to you if we.... well... juggled :) THANKS! Im 50 years old and probably over 20 of those years i always wanted to juggle. Recently it has been a constant "want". i went and bought 3 hackey sacks and started. I did about 5- 3 ball exchanges today!!! Thanks for your instructions. Hell it ain't much but it is one more skill in the bag. Thanks very much. Peace, Patience, and Perserverance

Rachel Merser

Hi i learned the juggling after 5 practices the pictures are great and i understood the instructions easy.i applaud to you!!!:)


am so glad that i came on the internet and looked at your website. now i can juggle three balls. And the thing is that i just started on the 16 of nov. 2003. which is today. But i need more time to juggle four balls. lol

Evan B-B

Bob Skura

When I read on your web site that some people had learned 4 ball juggling in a few hours it discouraged me but I thought even if it takes me longer I'm going to persevere. I'm not very good yet but I did get up to ten exchanges which I set as my target before I would write to you. Your instructions are very good and it is true that a person must learn each step along the way. Happy juggling to all.

Great website took me 3 weeks to learn to juggle thanks a million

Tracey, Jeff & Frank

We were all given hacky sacks while traveling for work. After several attempts to hacky we decided to move on to juggling. We were so clueless--but your site was great! It only took one afternoon--the animations really helped. Now Jeff is considering quitting his day job to join the circus.. okay, not really. But he's looking forward to juggling on the golf course next summer! Thanks!!


Thanks, for helping me to learn to juggle Steve!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for teaching me how to juggle. I bought a bean bag juggling set a few days ago from my school circus and learned about the cascade (juggling technique), but never really learned how to juggle. Thanks for making this site because it taught me exactly how to juggle.


Hi, I learnt four balls from your instructions. I was able to do 3 cascade years before, but wanted to move onto 4. I did the circular pattern in the opposite direction than the diagram, though. It took me about a week to get 4 sync, at about 2 hours a day. Then a few weeks to get 4 async pattern going for a few catches (10 or so). That was about a month ago. Today I maxed at 128 catches, so I'm pretty proud. I've been working on other patterns like 5 cascade and Mill's Mess with a bit of improvement. I'm really trying to get accurate throws and not trying to save wild ones. Thanks for the clear instructions! Perhaps you would consider writing more guides explaining other tricks?

My friend gave me some tips on how to juggle but it didn't seem to help me. Then I found your website which gave me a lot of help and a good step by step procedure of how to juggle. It took me about 6 hours to be able to juggle for more than 30 seconds with out dropping the balls. Thanks very much Steve.

Steve you've done it again. Once I had mastered the 3 ball juggle, My parents said I should try 4 balls. I knew it would be a lot harder but with your instuctions it was not as hard as I thought. Now when I'm not doing homework or I've got some sparet time, I try to master my juggling even more. Thanks again.

Beth Shewchuk

I never thought i could juggle but your page made it happen and now i'm a juggler and it only took one day. . . thanks man

Jaka Zupancic

TNX for helping me it took me about 3 days to learn, but it was worth it. P.S: Im trying to juggle tourches (unlit) for now. I first wanted to juggle when i saw someone at nature camp so...

Michael Tompkins

by following your instruction, I learned how to juggle in about an hour. My sister-in-law had to learn to juggle for a team building project at work and was try to learn the art. After watching her struggle I thought I would give it a try and wasnít having much success. I told her to hold on and went to the net and after a few minutes of print out your techniques, we began the basics. Now, juggling is like riding a bike once you learn the fundamentals you donít forget. I picked it up really quick, but I have found the key to be a rhythm, and to call out your net move or make a saying for it so you remember to throw the balls. Thank you for your help,


ya your instructions helped me out a lot


Hi - I learned juggling on a campsite using 3 stones. After reading your web site, I realized that now I want to learn how to ride a unicycle, while juggling 4 balls P.S. You are brilliant! Thanks for a great site!

Paige Airs

I can easily understand your juggling step's.

brad jacobs

this must be one of the best juggling site i have ever been to i have been trying to juggly for 2 weeks and i have not succeded i have come to your site i have learnt. Thanx

Dave Thomas

I actually had to learn how to juggle for a school project and i had no idea how to juggle, but i followed your instructions and, im not the best juggler, but i can keep it going.

Darren Sum

Many thanks for creating such a clear and coherent page on juggling - I cannot believe I managed to do it in one day! Thanks again

Joe Fowler

hey, i learned to juggle 3 balls with your instructions thanks!


i learned to juggle in only one day thanks to you and your easy to follow step by step instructions.


Wow!! How amazing first thing i know is that i can bearly catch a ball and then the next thing i know is that i am juggling. I learnt how to juggle in 2 days and my personal best is 36 catches and as u said i just cant get enough of juggling every time i see some random things i just have to juggle them, Its just so FUN!!! Your instructions are very simple and very effective. I just never thought that i would ever be able to juggle it just looks so difficult, I totally agree that it has something to do with the Matrix the balls seem to fall slower when your juggling. Thank You So Much

Don Sarver

Your page was a big help. Just a little perserverance and practice and I am finally able to keep everything circling in the air for awhile anyway! Thanks for your web site.

Thank you so much for having such a great website on learning how to juggle. I have never juggled in my life and my sister brought home 3 balls all the same size and different colors and i thought, wow i need to learn how to juggle. So i went to Yahoo! and typed in "learn how to juggle", and this was the first page to come up so i clicked that. The instructions are sooooo easy! After about 10 minutes of practicing i can actually juggle! Thanks!!

hi. i was practicing for juggling about 4 months with nonsense informations but your lessons tought me juggling in only 1,5 hour...thanks,now i can juggle apples in a supermarket or bottles in a pub:)

John Moore

Hi Steve, I was surprised to learn how easy this is. I picked up a set of juggling balls at a toy store on an impulse and started teaching myself. Only took about half-hour to start getting the hang of it. I didn't really catch on til I found your page on the net though. Nice clear illustrations. Twenty years ago I worked at a summer camp with two guys who were also circus performers from Peru, Indiana (the circus is the biggest thing going in Peru) and they were both excellent jugglers. It never occurred to me to attempt it. I'm 40 now .. glad I did. My sons want me to stop juggling their stuff and my cats run from the room when I come in. Think I'll try out the 4 ball instructions, and then...machetes! (Not)

Ms. Stacey

Hi! I just wanted to let you know that our summer day camp program used your website to learn how to juggle. I own a licensed group daycare and we have a summer program for the school kids. Each week during the summer, we choose a new theme and this week's theme was Circus Week. Today, we learned about juggling and how to juggle. Your website was so much help! The animated pictures were a great help in explaining the techniques for juggling. Thank you!

I juggle, everyday. I have mastered juggling two balls in one hand, in both hands, mastered juggling three balls, mastered three balls counter clockwise and clockwise, and i'm mastering juggling two balls in one hand, in both hands, presently! Where are you from? Well, I've got to go! Bye!
