Where is Kliff (!!!!!!!!!!)

Sunday, February 28th, 2010

Two friends of mine went to Kiev to train juggling with the crazy kids there. I talked to one of them (Petter) the other day and he said that they would be posting a video of some stuff they had been doing there along with some of what the ukranian guys are working on.

HOLY SHIT! I got so excited watching this! I’m not going to spoil the surprises for you but it’s an amazing video with incredible  technique and super new one ball and three ring work by the swedish representatives.

Make sure you check out Petters other video and subscribe to his account. He’s one of the coolest smartest jugglers I know and for sure someone to keep an eye on if you like awesome things.

A recent video showcasing Mark’s practice sessions at the Katakomben in Berlin.

Mark doesn’t perform his juggling, so isn’t so well known to the masses, but I think he should be brought to more people’s attention.

The Best Skillz. innit.

More videos can be found on Stephen McGinley’s Youtube Profile. I highly recommend the 5 ball video, and eagerly await the four and three ball edits…

Don’t watch the clip above! go to youtube and watch it at 720p or fullscreen!
A long-awaited video from Costa Rica featuring Burning Dan, Alien Jon, Baz, and Nick Playpoi spinning to the music of Reza Moosavi. Amazingly high quality cinematography and video editing skills by Matthew Boyd :) If Baraka were a poi video, it would look like this :)

Sa is an italian poi manipulator. He’s 20 and started his juggling path all alone only 3 years ago; after meeting Ronan he has decided to study and find new poi and contact manipulation forms. He lives in Milan.

This is his youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/Santiagopoi
