I started juggling a few months ago because I was curious if there would be any skill transfer to my golf swing. I was in a golf tournament with a baseball player and I could clearly see years of confidence in him that I directly attributed to a well developed hand-eye coordination. I contemplated going to batting cages but wanted to do something more accessible. Juggling in my kitchen in the mornings seemed pretty available. It's been about 5 months of nearly daily practice and I think some results are beginning to show. Additionally, at the driving range I am better able to control my timing at impact and as a result the ball is more often going where I want it to. I've also noticed improved contact with the ball in my putting and my chipping as well. Now if we could just get a bit of warmer, dryer weather, golfing would be more fun.
My goal with this blog is to express how I see movement. Movement is everything. Movement is life. I enjoy learning to move in new ways and especially enjoy working on one particular skill that will transfer over to other skills. It's the old killing a bird with two stones idea. Ha! I got that backwards. I mean Killing two birds with one stone. Yeah, that's more like it.
So in conclusion, this blog series is about movement. I plan on involving some videos of my favorite activities: bodywork, golfing, drumming, kiteboarding, slacklining, Crossfit, juggling and drone flying to name a few. Basically anything I find interesting. My hope is that it helps you find insight into how movement is everywhere and everything.
