juggling and diabolo at the same time?
« on: July 03, 2005, 10:17:32 am »
i have a vision  :wink:

i thought about the possibility to juggle with three balls and doing 2 diabolos at the same time.
is that possible? i think it could work because the moving of the hands is similar.

what do you think?

how you want to hold the sticks and juggle the balls in the same time? you will need 4 hands! but i'll try to do it...   :D

EDIT: tried it a few times now and seems impossible to me... i can't do it neither with one diabolo.

Problem no. 1:  it's soooo hard to put balls in your hands when you're doing two
Problem no. 2:  it's soooo MUCH harder to juggle the balls, hold the sticks and control the rotation!!!!

If you hold the sticks in one hand and juggle three balls in the other it should work. But if you have one stick in each hand it can be quite hard, dont know which kind you are thinking of though.

Oh well, definately worth trying anyway. good luck.

got an idea - take a tape and attach sticks to your wrists - now you don't have to hold the sticks, you have free hands to juggle... wanted to try it but have no tape at home  :cry:

EDIT: I found some tape.

Don't even try that!!!  IT IS A BAD IDEA!!! Man, it HURTS...  :cry:

I can juggle three rings in one hand whilst shuffling two with the other?  That's not quite as good I suppose.

Hey, how about you get three hackey sacks, then try to do two diabolos, and you can use the backs of your hands  to juggle the hackeysacks. Maybe even add some kicks to the combos. I dont have three hackey sacks, so ill leave this one up to you guys.

I say hackey sacks because they are soft, and wont fall off as much as a tennis ball, or any harder ball.
Go Draco with your Diabolo!

Did you tape the sticks in just one place? I can see that hurting. If that's what you did, and you want to try again (I don't see why you would if it hurt before!) you could try taping the sticks at the bottom, on your forearms, and again at the end, near your wrists, that way they wouldn't twist and dig in?

I know how to do it, with a proper two-hand three ball cascade and no sticky  tape or extra stuff (and certainly no extra people).  Easy, when you know how.

I suppose I could tell you how, but it'll be more fun to let you figure it out for yourselves.  :0)

ok, but i'm not going to try it again! at least it still hurts, when you're putting the tape away!

All very, mysterious Mr Heathcote.  This wouldn't happen to bear any similarity to your legendary two diabolos and two devil sticks trick now would it????

But that is something different, than we thought... What the kid's doing is easy but try to hold sticks in BOTH hands and juggle THREE balls! That's "hardcore" (at least for me...for now  :D ).

slightly different, but with some wide axels you can juggle two sticks and a diabolo in a regular cascaed pattern by doing hand grinds with the diabolo and spinning the sticks like clubs, sometimes the string gets in the way a bit though.

extend the idea to have 2 diabolos and 2 sticks as four object juggling, and im sure you could have a ball as a fifth object.

I have a way of doing 4 balls and 2 diabolos. I started practicing today, and I got 13 catches.

Easy when you know how.
