When I first started this channel, one of the first skills I learned was to juggle. I did that in around 3 hours and 44 minutes, which I thought was a pretty good time. In this episode I’ve enlisted someone to learn the same skill to compare times with. That person is my wife, Kim. She’s usually the one behind the camera, this week we swapped roles! Hope you guys enoy!

  • That is great. It took me about 1-2 weeks to get the 3-ball cascade solid in 1988 so that I could run the pattern for 5 minutes or more.

  • The two biggest tips that I’ve learned while trying something new is to 1) Truly want to learn your task. 2) commit to each attempt. Having that passion to succeed and having the courage to actually attempt it is the fastest way to reach your goal

  • Now that they can both juggle the next thing to do is pass the balls between each other. It's not that much harder than doing a cascade by yourself.

  • When I learned to juggle, I kept moving forward and eventually throwing the balls too far away, so I stood about a metre away from a wall whilst facing it. Definitely helped.

  • Anyone wanting to take it a step further should consider these tips: Challenge your brain with extremes, like holding your arms out for really wide throws, then really close together... throwing high for a while, then throwing low for a while... enough of that and your brain will more easily learn the comfortable medium. And if you're moving around a lot, stand facing a wall, in a hallway. You'll be telling your brain you don't have room to move, and it will adjust accordingly! Good luck!

  • Juggling is a very very bad control test because some people may have better eye to hand coordination as well as hand control, based off of other activities they have done in life. Therefore for some it may not be really learning to juggle, as much as others at least, so it doesn't mean you're a better learner. I mean for me it took 20min to learn to juggle 3 balls, and another 5min to juggle 2balls in one hand. Why? Because I'm a quick thinking and athletic individual, and I've played many sports, especially with a ball, and I have the control, so I was merely putting those skills to juggling and giving it a bit of practice. It doesn't mean im a god level learner
