IJA Challenge – Shortest Object Balanced on One Finger

Hello, and thanks for coming to the IJA Challenge! The IJA Challenge is a monthly video contest put forth to the juggling community, in which anyone with a video camera to record an attempt with compete for a juggling/manipulation based world record set by Richard Kohut, the winners of which receive prizes for their achievement in breaking or tying his world record attempt. This also means the winner of each month’s contest will become a world record holder! So if you think you have the skills, set up your camera and give it a shot! You could be the best in the world at something and not even know it yet!

Entrants have 3 weeks from the posting of the video to submit their entry as a video reply, and must follow the rules for the month’s challenge. Prizes for the entrants are as follows:
1st prize – 1 Year IJA Membership and $40 IJA Store Credit
2nd Prize – $40 IJA Store Credit

This month’s challenge rules:

  • Object must be balanced for at least ten seconds.
  • Object must be clearly measured on video.
  • Object may not be spinning when balanced.
  • Object must be at least 3x taller than it’s width.
  • Object should not be able to balance on it’s own.

Ties for an objects height will be decided by the duration of the balance.
