He soon found that he was more annoying than anything else. Through experience, he learned better ways to build his juggling reputation.
One of the best ways to build your reputation as a juggler is by coin snatching. Demonstrating a secondary skill, like speed-reflexes, will have a more lasting impression on those who witness your almost superhuman skill.
You explain that your reflexes developed as your learned to juggle.
Any of the coin grabbing and switching methods in Coin Snatching: The Reputation Builder are suitable as Juggle Enhancers.
By The Way -- Did you know that, over the years, I have demonstrated and taught a few of these techniques to many jugglers. At the 1978 IJA (International Juggling Association) Convention in Eugene, Oregon, I taught several jugglers what is now referred to as the Rochester Switch. Frank Olivier was particularly impressed with the minor miracle.
Rhys Thomas, Sage, Tim Miller, and even a few of the Flying Karamozovs have seen me perform Kip's Take -- my favorite coin switch.
They liked the effects so much, because they were jugglers.

Incredible Coin-Snatching Bonuses
Two ideas that will require more practice than say The Rochester Switch are the bonuses included toward the end of Coin Snatching: The Reputation Builder:
* Calvert's Claw -- John Calvert is possibly the oldest professional magician still making the circuit with a strong magic act. In his 90s, Mr. Calvert has graciously allowed Kip Pascal to describe and publish his routine where he fools the participant by doing the opposite of what he claims. Instead of stealing one called for coin from a handful held by the participant, you steal the handful of coins AND LEAVVE ONLY THE REQUESTED COIN!
* The Conversation with Justin Hanes -- This is what happens when creativity meets coin snatching. The result? An entertaining discussion that ends with a tandem steal. By making use of a second spectator, at the same time, you take what is already the impossible and you launch it right out of the galaxy.
Turn this into the climax juggling feat of your act. Perfect for the Street Performer.
