- Course Intro
In this course you will learn to juggle rhythms with Chuka Chuks. You can get your Chuka Chuks HERE!
The course starts with simple grooves and moves into very advanced grooves. There is a heap of lessons that will keep you learning for months and months.
I've been an internationally touring professional juggler for more than 20 years and playing rhythms with Chuka Chuks is more exciting than any form of juggling I've tried. Hours fly by when you're jamming with music, it's totally fun and totally addictive.

I've had the good fortune of a 20 year career, travelling the world, doing what I love. As a comedy juggler, inventor, comedian, robot operator and actor I've performed in over 15 countries in theatres, Circus Big Tops and out door festivals. Currently I continue to tour nationally and internationally.
Back in 1997 I got one hell of a buzz and my first experience of juggling rhythms in Bondi, Australia.
Even back then, with 3 egg shakers and some very basic grooves, Australian musician Michael Lira and I had a total blast juggling rhythms together. To this day, there’s nothing I love more than juggling rhythms with live musicians. It’s the most amazing feeling.
In the last 15 years I've had that buzz playing shows all around the world, in all musical styles, with all kinds of musicians - and all the time developing better shaker balls and plenty of moves and grooves.
The humble percussion eggs took me from Zimbabwe to the States, Singapore to Australia, Hong Kong to Germany with every performance learning new ways to create music while I juggled.
After a 15 year search and hundreds of hours of experimentation with jugglers, musicians and general groovers, we've finally come up with the ultimate juggling percussion balls.
Chuka Chuks are super strong, feature 3 different tones and come in 2 different sizes - which means there are hundreds of thousands of beats, rhythms and grooves just waiting to be discovered.
I’m so stoked to be sharing these guys with the world and can’t wait to hear your own stories of where the Chuka Chuks take you!
Have fun catching the rhythms!

Amazing, so well instructed
Top Kurs - Super skills, gut erklärt, unterhaltsam.
I've been following Joel and Juzzie online for some time and love juggling myself. So I took the plunge, ordered some Chuks and started catching my own rhythm. The lessons are clear and Joel is hilarious. While I would have preferred a mirror option, I am not complaining. Honestly if you are a juggler looking for a challenge then you have found it. If you're not a juggler you're still going to have a blast!! I already have a nice 2 ball routine down and tend to drop the 3rd ball from my act currently. This isn't actually a bad thing though, it inspires me to keep on chukkin' and keeps me experimenting with new rhythms. 3 ball chukkin' is tough even as a seasoned juggler but I am only about a month and a half into it and I will not be defeated!! :) I did have an issue with my order originally but kudos to Joel, he not only sorted my issue out the second he got back from Japan but was really involved in the communication. He is also more than happy to answer questions (sometimes stupid) and give feedback. I have never enjoyed learning a new prop as much as I have with Chuka Chuks.
Molto ben organizzato comprensibile e chiaro!
Yes! I'm going through the course very slowly, mostly because I don't practice much. I love that I can rewind anytime I want. One thing I've noticed is that the instructor's balls seem to move a greater distance than mine do. In order to stay with the beat, I have to restrict the height of my toss a lot more than he seems to. I'm still trying to figure out why this is. Maybe he tosses with more speed or power than I do. I don't know.
