# passing, teaching, 20 minutes

Had a small juggling friend for a while today, K. Helped him with throwing one club from one hand to the other, and some other things he tried to do. Showed him that you can roll clubs on the floor, too.

Trying to teach him 5c 1-count. We have tried once before. Got to the 4c practise, but only caught all 4 once.

# teaching, 1 minutes

There were a couple of new kids at circus practice, and since they seemed a bit interested in my juggling I asked if they wanted to try. They didn't have much patience practising so I just let them try a few things (throwing and catching 1 club, passing 1 club, 2 ball exchange, balancing a club on finger or nose...) Also tried to encourage them by showing the YJA badge that they can get if they learn to juggle 3 balls.
(About 10 minutes actually trying to teach them, and a few more minutes that were more playing)

# teaching, 1 minutes

Helped K with throwing and catching one club.

Then went straight to teaching passing (since, well, he couldn't juggle 3 balls)

Starting with 3 clubs, always throwing to the empty hand.
Then still 3 clubs, but me starting with one club, throwing to K who had one club in each hand and thus had to throw to me to catch.
Then 4 clubs, still me starting. We got 4 catches once or twice. His throws were often low, though, sometimes zaps rather than regular passes, and mine were not always perfect either. I'm used to juggling mostly with people taller than me, and K was significantly shorter (well, he is, like, 8 years old or something like that...) so I blame inexperience of passing with children.

It was fun for about 15 minutes, for me, K was still interested though so we kept going for about 10 more minutes.

Tried to get him to try juggling balls (or, well, at least a 2 ball exchange) but he didn't seem that interested in balls. Can't blame him, clubs are more fun, but I think learning to juggle 3 balls would be good if he actually wants to learn juggling. Don't know if he does though, or if he was just playing.

Tried passing with balls, too, for a few minutes. Then went back to playing with clubs (he with 1, me with 1-3 clubs). He asked me how to do some stuff (like, thumb roll and kick-up) and I tried to show him.

About 30-40 minutes in total.

So... If I see him again after Christmas, anyone has some nice, easy-ish tricks to teach an 8-year-old who can't juggle?

Teaching E to do 5b 1-count.. Well... Only had time for a few attempts at the actual pattern after practising with 3 or 4 balls, but got about 6-7 passes (in total).
