Hi and welcome! I'm Jimmy, a performing juggler in Singapore who performs Juggling, L.E.D. and Fire acts to entertain at events, parties, carnivals, festivals, and wherever people come together to relax and have a good time. View my portfolio and book a show for your event or party at:
The Diabolo is a juggling prop that resembles a yo-yo, except that the Diabolo is not at all tied to the string. The Diabolo is spun and balanced on a string using a pair of handheld control sticks, to which both ends of the string are tied.
The tricks I like to do with the Diabolo are shown in this video. They involve throwing or catching, both of which are what make Juggling fascinating to me. The object that is thrown spends some time in the air before it is caught.
Here is the video that shows four tricks, including the Whip Catch at the end.
An observation about juggling - at the most fundamental level, the Diabolo is far easier to do than Club Juggling. However, there are very advanced Diabolo styles, techniques, and tricks that will challenge any avid juggler.
