Multiplex Help

Online juggling workshop by James Jay

Multiplexing is throwing or catching more than one object at the same time with the same hand. Multiplexing can involve single tricks or continuous patterns. It can add variety to your repertoire and make juggling a larger number of balls easier (although it will by no means satisfy numbers juggling purists, who scoff at a seven-ball multiplex).

Muliplexing other props is possible, but balls offer the most potential in this area of juggling. Therefore, you will find that references to multiplexing generally relate to ball juggling unless otherwise indicated.
