This takes more grace than I have.

Anyone that is a fan of the Movie Labyrinth is familiar with Contact Juggling.

Here is a guy in a park, presumably Japan, that makes it look really easy. If you like this kind of performance art, you'll love what this kid does with a crystal ball.

I can't imagine someone that young having that much patience to learn that so well.

It was like the ball was nailed to one spot in the air half the time and his hands just moved around it without having to support it.

Great page and wonderful pictures. I have always loved the Labyrinth and been very impressed with they stand-in guy they got to do the "contact juggling" (which I never knew the name of until now). Thanks for the information and thank you for the videos. I have a weight balanced crystal ball from the movie, maybe I will have to learn more about this and see if I can do it!
