Bobby Jule (real name Joe Pegnato) was there at the beginning of the IJA. He was a charter member of the organization and was the 2015 recipient of the IJA 2015 Historical Achievement Award. Bobby took home movies of jugglers from the 1940s to the 1970s. He has agreed to allow the IJA to release these videos through eJuggle. Bobby filmed his friend Francis Brunn three times. Note that this was early enough in Brunn’s career that he had not yet learned the blind kick directly to a double ball spin stack. Instead, the ball was blind kicked to a front foot stall before being kicked up to the double ball spin stack. Enjoy!
