I thought I drop some notes here which I made earlier on, see if they are of use for anyone or spark a discussion. More posts are to come in the future if you like this
Everybody talks about perfect throws. But what is a perfect throw?
A perfect throw is:
The longer the path in the correct direction with
the strongest muscles, the more precise you can control the direction
and the speed.
Allows for errors and variations
The further away the props
are from each other, the less likely it is that they are going to
collide. The larger your reach from your position, the more likely that
you can make the catch.
Juggling is more pleasant to watch when it is pretty.
When it takes less power you can last longer.
The shorter the time needed between catch and the throw, the more time you have left for other things.
Don’t do the things you don’t need to do, relax where you can.
The quicker you learn this technique, the faster you can move on.
Don’t ruin your body or your props. Make correct use of tendons, joints and muscles.
Analyse your body and your throw with the points above, and you can
find your perfect throw for each and every trick. Everyone can focus on a
different aspect, therefore there is no such thing as ‘the’ perfect
