European style juggling resources?

    I watched a TED talk on YouTube about juggling recently. The speaker goes on about differences between American and European style juggling. Mainly that American style is based on repetition, while European style is more about fits and starts.

    Most of the resources listed on this site (and most of the tutorials I've found on YouTube) are mainly about the American style. Is there anyone familiar with sites that teach some of the basic 3 ball tricks?

    Whaaa---? What's so wrong with "wits and smarts"? That's... Oh.

    Anyway, if anyone is interested, the video I'm refering to is below:

    Oh, Jay is inspiring. Watching him work in shows and sitting in on a class of his at a fest once totally changed my perspective on what juggling CAN be.

    i appreciate both of the juggling arts, be it American or British, and i guess if to try, there may a unique juggling skill be found as well out of these two

    I watched that video a couple times before and I'm curious as to how prominent the differences really are compared to each other. I am American, but I learned to juggle while in Germany at a couple conventions. I don't have a long history with juggling, but at these conventions, everything seemed relatively normal. I mean site swaps and typical styles were the same.

    ...well maybe they are different, but if it really is different then maybe I'll think American juggling conventions are boring :p hmm...
