These instructions will teach you how to pass six clubs between two people. Previous experience juggling three clubs comfortably is necessary. Group juggling is a merry time and desired by many solo jugglers. These steps will propel you from solo to group juggling and will help you expand your skill set. After familiarizing yourself with a two-person pattern, larger and more complex patterns can be easily learned.

Pass: juggling with two people or more, throw from your hip directed towards to other person.
Rhythm: the flow/beat of the passing pattern that will sync up your timing
