Part II - Two Balls
Hold one ball in each hand.
Toss the red ball from your weaker hand towards your dominant
hand, just like in Part I (make sure it's about eye level).
When the red ball reaches its highest point, toss the blue ball so
that it passes underneath (that is, to the inside of) the red ball.
Toss number two MUST be the same height as toss Number one.
Catch the red ball one in your dominant hand (i.e.: the hand that just
threw the blue ball)
Catch the blue ball in your weaker hand (i.e.: the hand which the first
toss came from).
Stop - unless you add a third ball it is impossible to continue from this
point with out a pause here, so don't bother trying.
While you're working on this, the best way to test if you're doing it right
is to listen to the rhythm of the throws and catches. The timing between
throws 1 & 2 should be the same as timing between catches 1 & 2.
If the timing between catches is shorter, then you need to make
the 2nd toss a little bit higher. (Remember Both tosses must be
the same height)

|Important: You have to be able to begin this
step equally well from either hand. Once you get the basic idea, pick one
color of ball, and always start with that ball. This makes sure
you practice starting with both hands just as much.
|Always start with the red ball, and you'll learn to start with either hand
