Pre-Review Mystic Ball the Movie

MoM received our copy of Mystic Ball the Movie about Chinlone yesterday. Sorry, no time to write a full review now. Briefly, it’s as good as the web-promo makes it seem that it might be! If you are into Juggling or contact or dance with manipulation – OMG Buy yourself a copy.
Players like Su Su Hlaing, Ko Maung Maung, Aung Soe Moe and Motta, left my jaw on the floor with the elegance of their play and the octogenarian players with 70 years of playing experience ensured that it stayed there.

Bonus: Shipped to UK/Europe it cost only about £18.
Full review next year ;). Also a teaser: we just received some particularly good news for 1 ball contact jugglers. We’re just awaiting some final details, and hope to be able to make an announcement in the next few weeks.

New Shoes – Issac Juggling

Hot Juggling Music Video by Issac.
Great to watch and great technical skills – inc 7 clubs and tricks with 3. We’re loving this growing trend for well produced Juggling music videos, with a story, and connection to the music – makes technical juggling interesting to watch!

All aspects of contact juggling covered, from bodyrolling, isolationism, and multiball contact to presentation techniques, fitting moves together, as well as exploration sessions and much, much more…

We aim to teach good manipulation technique in a fashion that becomes fun and easy to digest for all levels of skill. Expect a lot of people to get rather good, rather quickly.
