The return of Metra

Japanese contact juggler Metra, who has been featured on this blog many times before, has returned after several years absence from the scene with a set of new videos and new techniques. I’m especially impressed with his style of small silicon ball multiball, and many of the techniques he showcases in this video are totally new to me.

Metra linked me to several videos that he was using as inspiration, check out these clips below for a completely different approach to ‘palmspinning’ technique.

Joseph Viatte – ball juggling

2 years ago all my friends in Europe started asking me ” have you met this young kid Joseph? He is amazing.”

I later met him at the Swiss juggling convention was deeply impressed by his passion for contact juggling. I immediately subscribed to his youtube channel, Juggling for Cake and he has released some great contact and multiball and 8ring stuff. Seriously just click those links.

They are all full of stuff you’ve never thought of before but it is brilliant. I should have been posting all of them on the Ministry all year, but these recent 3ball videos are just too good so here ya go, this is Joseph and he is seriously one of the best new contemporary jugglers that exist.
