Contact Juggling - You Won't Believe This is Real

This held my attention right to the end.  I must have lived a sheltered life because I don’t believe I had heard of contact juggling before, but now I have I am an immediate fan!  It differs from toss juggling in a number of ways (have a look at the Wikipedia page for a full explanation).  However, essentially it involves rolling a ball around one’s body, spinning the ball and finally manipulating it so it appears to be hanging in mid-air.  The young man in the video above does all with dexterity and grace. I honestly thought I must have been watching a CGI trick!

The video is by Kuma Films and was made at the National Taiwan University.
