New logo design

I just added the new Claymotion Juggling logo to the main web site and I think it looks awesome! Huge thanks to Alan Alovus for designing it and making a few tweaks to get it just right. I think it'd look great on some t-shirts, so I might start looking to see if I can get it done someplace that is reasonably priced (look for them in the future).

More claymotion videos

Wow, there seems to be quite a few videos with claymotion appearing on youtube and other places. Here are three new ones that I came across this week.

Steve Hoggan sent me this link to a guy in Japan who has some interesting claymotion stuff that he is working on.

Here is Reuben doing some more great three ball juggling where he has a fair bit of multiplex moves, start/stop moves, as well as some claymotion moves at the end of the video.

Here is a video I was excited to see. I met Taylor at the 2008 IJA and she was called "The Sponge" because of her ability to pick up tricks VERY quickly. I think she had just learned some of the claymotion moves at the IJA and also came to the claymotion workshop I gave there. She put some great stuff in the video and I'm looking forward to other videos from her.

Four Ball Georgian Shuffle

I just added another section on the Georgian Shuffle page for the four ball Georgian Shuffle and variations to that trick. I have worked on some other variations with the three ball version (which there are probably an infinite number :), and if all goes well I'll be able to video some of those tricks and get them up on the site as well. Hopefully some of you will find these interesting and can learn some new tricks as well as start coming up with your own ideas and variations on the patterns.

Additional youtube videos with claymotion

I added a few links to the claymotion videos page which have some youtube videos with claymotion moves in them. the first two are more of a works in progress response to my Claymotion Freestyle video, and the other one is an overall excellent video of Steve Hoggan doing some claymotion and multiplex moves with three, four, and five balls. Be sure to check them out.

Four ball claymotion

Whew, it's been too long since I posted any new tricks. For this update I have just added a number of four ball claymotion tricks to the web site. I don't think I have seen anyone doing claymotion style moves with four balls, so hopefully this will be new to a lot of you. Most of the four ball tricks are some basic moves to start out with, and hopefully I can get some more up on the site soon. I have quite a bit more stuff lined up to put on the site, it's all just a matter of how much time I can find to do some video and editing. So keep checking back.

Claymotion Freestyle

I just added a video to the claymotion juggling web site. This is a compilation of some clips I shot while filming the claymotion tricks videos. There is no real start, stop, or direction as I was juggling, just freestylin' it and seeing where things went. It'll give you a little bit of an idea of stringing some of the claymotion tricks together. Hopefully you'll be able to learn some of the tricks and then create your own style.

Observations on the Georgian Shuffle

The Georgian Shuffle is a very nice multiplex trick, and a number of variations of the trick are used in claymotion juggling. I started looking into this trick a bit and came up with some fun observations. I created a web page with what I found as well as videos of some of the variations. You can check it out under the "Related items" at Here is the direct URL:

I have quite a few other items that I have in mind to add to the site. Hopefully I'll be getting to those in the near future, so keep checking back.
