For Fans Of
Many years ago I taught myself how to juggle, mostly from sheer boredom at work. Using balled up duct tape I practiced and practiced until I could keep all three balls up in the air continuously. Without the aid of a “how to juggle” book, it took me a long time but the satisfaction of achievement was still there.
Later I taught my family how to juggle and we enjoyed the opportunities to practice together. My son, Andy, really took off and became an accomplished juggler on his own. We started a juggling club in the community where students earned achievement patches. Eventually, we
decided to write this book.
Juggling is like a wild violet, plant a seed and watch it take over. Most jugglers not only love to juggle but they love to teach others. That’s one of the things I really enjoy about juggling. No matter who you are, no matter what age, regardless of your athletic prowess, you can learn to juggle and be a part of a growing community.
