Juggling have been around as long as there have been objects to juggle with, which is like forever.
I am not completely sure how it all started, the oldest juggling video I’ve seen is from beginning of the 1900. Rastelli was his name and he were absolutely amazing, he did some things that I havn’t seen
the jugglers of today pull of.
The first famous football juggler was Mr. Woo, he took the art of football freestyle to a new level. He did a lot of circus tricks. He had a lot of style and imagination. Mr.Woo was a former pro footballer who wanted to take his skills to a new level. Mr.Woo have now worked with many of the best football players of today. He has also been seen in several TV ads and has been a “stunt double” for many players(doing the tricks for them). He has also been teaching his tricks to people all over the world.
After a couple of years a new dimension of the sport was born. The video of Soufiane Touzani was the start of this new freestyle era. In the beginning of 2000 he released a video with tricks never seen before. He did crazy combinations and that was one of the first real freestyle movies ever released on the net. Today this video have been seen by millions of people all over the world, it’s probably the most seen freestyle video ever. Touzani was doing a lot of leg tricks and combination. Most people have seen one around the world, this guy did multiple and also new combination of different tricks. This video was the introduction to the freestyle scene to so many people.
A couple of years later there came a new revolution of airmoves. The guy that introduced this style of freestyle is named “Palle” and he’s from Sweden. He started to do the craziest tricks after each other, all of them in one motion with no touch in between the tricks. This kind of freestyle had never ever been seen before. People went more and more crazy about the airmoves style. Today there is some people who know the no touch style, but not very many.
To all you people who want to bring freestyle to a new level… think, be creative and have patience!
