News from the future, they’re proposing this as a way to help learn to play a musical instrument. Mortal fools, wasting their time playing musical instruments, when they could be juggling.
More info, only in Japan.
One day, we won’t need to practice contact juggling, we will download tricks directly into our brain implants. Ahead of the game, MoM have a new introductory offer: We will sell you palm spinning 10 balls-in-1 hand for just £10. (You supply the balls).
This video begins by showing a kendama battle; a group of kendama enthusiasts throwing a series of increasingly complex tricks in a backyard competition. The small crowd explodes with excitement when the winner throws his final move, they celebrate together as if this was THE main event of the year. As a viewer, it is a unique glimpse into a very small world.
This is a collection of those awesome moments that happen when you are in the company of amazing people (and the camera just happens to be pointing in the right direction at the right time) Kyle Johnson makes the best videos, and I think he understands what this ‘ministry’ thing is all about better than we do.
Also, Canada boxes
WoW, here at MoM HQ, we though we’d seen Multiball Contact Juggling, until this arrived in our inbox this morning.
Absolutely unbelievable – this is just brilliant, highlights at 0:47 and 3:05, and and hold out to the end for an awesome way into 8 ball palmspinning.
We cannot find out anything more about Mariya Rachickaya online, perhaps one of our Russia readers can point us to her professional webpage.
With Thanks to Thomas from Flame Oz for the link.
This magical video from me, February 2, 2010 at Sur la Mayor in Mordzhime / GOA to address a French yoga Cristiano (Jotti). For a whole year like his mount, but realized that the effect it will disappear presence, so watch the 12 minute speech, shot and one shot without any editing! Sincerely, Oleg Floppy.
A unique and individual style combining yoga with contact. It’s 12 minutes long, if it’s too long for you skip to 9:00 minutes for a nice bit of magic
“About Manipulation” is a project wanted, created and directed by Moon and Ministry of Manipulation. We’ve tought there a lot of videos with people playing, and so few videos with people talking about their experiences and ideas in contact juggling. So we’ve tried to show you what’s behind a contact juggler, and what he lives with this amazing art.
Ejc was the perfect moment to do this full length (19 mins.) movie; we are sorry because there were so much great contact jugglers we’ve missed at Ejc (Okotanpe, Richard Hartnell, Kyle Johnson..just some big names)..but as you probably know weather was terrible and time wasn’t so much. We’ve chosen some interesting, new and old, personalities in contact juggling world, and ask them what’s contact juggling, how’s changing and where is going. So, this is a gift for the contact juggling community and for the new wave of contact jugglers. Hope you’ll like it…Please feel free to share it wherever you want. Big thanks to Stefano Ricci and Federico Tasso for the patience and help.
And obviously..thank YOU for watching!
Here it is, our 2011 collaboration video.
Contact Juggling, an ancient art recently codified and popularized by Michael Moschen, is as indefinable as it is magical. Rather than try to describe it, the community of ContactJuggling.org began this project to show you how each of us sees Contact Juggling. Whether dance, juggling, mime, or magic (or perhaps all four or none at all), this video showcases years of hard work by artists across four continents, each bound together by a common interest but all unique in their study.
