Re: [singaporejugglers] IJA Post Mortem
- hmmm...yea the learning process would be a bitch. How is he/she gonna pick up the unicycle after it drops? He/she woulld have to learn the kickup before learning to ride. :P
Ya casey boehmer is an inspiration. not just in juggling, but inspiring in general. i saw him do 5 rings (i think) at marina with his one arm. Never forgot that sight.
Read a bit about Casey Boehmer. THat sounds amazing.
A few days ago I was just wondering if disabled (no arms)unicyclists exist.
Unlike bicycles which require arms to steer and brake, unicyclesare
comparitively better-suited. Then again, the learning process wouldbe a
bitch - you can't hold on to walls.
