Contact Juggling

Contact juggling is about the movement of objects, such as balls, that remain in contact with the body.

There is a Wikipedia-type of site that has tutorials, FAQs, and other good info on the subject of contact juggling. It is at ContactJuggling.org. It is very helpful.

Otherwise, you can view these informative and fun, free videos on contact juggling with a Fushigi Ball.

The Trick to Understanding the Fushigi Ball

It appears that the Fushigi Ball levitates or moves "on its own" along the operator's body, as seen in the above collage of images.

It's really more like an illusion.  The main thing is that it remains in contact, hence the name "contact juggling", with ones body.  It also requires practice and developed skill and balance.  And patience.

Your best bet is to buy a 3/5 inch contact ball and watch the videos.  And then practice, practice, practice.
