World Juggling Federation

The World Juggling Federation or WJF was created by Jason Garfield, one of the world's best jugglers. The WJF is a juggling competition that is similar in structure to that of a gymnastics competition. You see, traditionally in organizations like the International Juggling Association (IJA), competition was not based on technical juggling but rather on performance/entertainment juggling. Jason Garfield was dissatisfied with this because he wanted to stick to technically difficult tricks and not waste time on crowd pleasers (which generally aren't technically demanding).

The WJF's 1st competition was held in Las Vegas, Nevada in December of 2004. ESPN2 aired the taped competition in January, February, and March.

The WJF is planning the 2nd competition for December of 2005 also in Las Vegas, Nevada.

It is my dream to be able to compete in this event by 2010. Wish me luck!

Check out the WJF website!
