Incredibly graceful, incredibly strong, actually really beautiful Aerial Straps from the ‘World Champion’ Straps artist, Igor Zaripov.

He won an IJA Gold medal with a one ball contact juggling act in 1994, which included an over-the-head roll and other bodyrolling/butterfly techniques which he had been working on since the late 70’s. Dawn recently returned from TurboFest in Quebec, and she brought back this great clip of his uniquely excellent palmspinning style.
When I joined the forums @ contactjuggling.org in 2001, there was a collection of user submitted videos from the ‘early days of contact juggling…’ back when people were still trying to figure out minor variations on Moschen’s crystal ball routine.
