The Basic Types of Throw
The following five types of throw form the basis of most three club tricks:
These throws are all well worth practising once you have a good 3 club cascade, especially multiple spins and flat throws which are used in many other tricks. These basic throws can produce some very nice effects when combined together in simple patterns, here are some ideas:
- Juggler's Tennis: an outside flat throw going back and forward over the top of a cascade.
- Half Shower: one hand throwing inside flats and the other throwing outside flats, with the inside flats always going underneath the outside ones.
- Quickly changing from very low and fast doubles or triples, into floaters, and back again. This is especially effective if you can keep both types of throw at the same height.
- Experiment with double and triple flat throws.
- Continuous reverse spins, or outside flats, juggled in a reverse cascade pattern. For many people this is easier than using a normal cascade for these types of throw.
- Switching between inside and outside flats every two throws. The sequence would be: right inside flat, left inside flat, right outside flat, left outside flat. Remember the outside flats are thrown over the tops of the incoming clubs.
