Juggling Torches

Wow! How do i juggle these?

Just like ordinary clubs. Do it in stages. Unlit in the light for an hour or so to get the feel of them. Then light them up and try them again in daylight. Not so difficult once you get over the fear. If the flames are too large at first, swing them a bit until they die down. You get better and more confident with practice. Try juggling through dusk into darkness. You'll find the dark is a very different kettle of ballgames as the bit you want to catch is not the bit you can see! After a few hours of cascading try relearning a few tricks---under the leg is fairly easy as is the odd double (very pretty with fire).
