Blind juggling is juggling without being able to see the pattern. Like isolation, balancing, head bouncing, and spinning, this makes juggling more difficult by increasing the accuracy required.

Normally to demonstrate blind juggling, you need to wear a blindfold to show that you can't see the objects, but for some tricks, you don't even have to close your eyes to juggle blind. You can do blind overhead or behind the back patterns while looking straight ahead with your eyes open.

Blind jugglersEdit
