Jad Moustafa's interest in juggling was sparked by a fire performance he saw five years ago.Located in Beirut's Geitawi area, Just Juggling has a distinctly DIY feel to it. Moustafa, with the help of some of the friends he has made over his five years and counting of juggling, set it up himself. It makes sense for a group of people used to mending their tattered juggling "props" or "toys" after having bought them from overseas.Just Juggling also offers up orbs used in "contact juggling" that are not attached to strings and are manipulated around the body.Particularly precious to jugglers are the white, unscorched Kevlar wicks on the business end of new fire toys.The fun isn't limited to kids. As Moustafa speaks, two friends in their mid-to-late 20s play with juggling balls and spinning plates, undeterred by the shop's limited space. While Just Juggling may be Lebanon's only brick-and-mortar juggling shop, Moustafa has friendly competition from jeweler-turned-juggling prop craftsman Paramaz Yepremian.
