Tripod Hold

Put your thumb, index finger, and middle fingers up, with the tips held close to each other. You can balance a ball on the tips.

This is used as a demonstration hold – it points out the ball. In the film, “The Labyrinth”, the first contact juggling clip begins and ends in this hold.

Personally, I prefer the three-finger hold to this one, but a lot of people use this as their “Look! A ball!” hold.

It is simple to do, and can be moved into (or out of) from the palm, open fist, or cradle holds.
