Duncan Toys promote violent juggling…as they should, because it’s ridiculously fun.
“Combat” is a game that originated at juggling festivals, and it’s sort of a cross between juggling, dodgeball, and rugby. The rules are simple…you must be juggling three clubs at all times, and you must try to screw that up for everyone around you. Last person juggling wins. You can play individuals or teams, both are fun, and when you get a bunch of REALLY good jugglers together it becomes downright terrifying…and the clip above shows.
Filmed at the 2011 and 2012 World Juggling Federation Competition, this video shows a bunch of jugglers at the peak of their abilities swinging hard plastic objects near each other’s faces at really high speeds. I’ve personally never lasted more than a few minutes in a low to mid-level game of Combat, and I doubt I would get to the 1-minute mark with this crew. Amazing.
Duncan Toys has been a sponsor of the WJF for some time now, and the competition airs each year on ESPN2.
