What is Pen Spinning?

Pen spinning (PS) is a form of contact juggling that uses a small writing tool, like a pen or a pencil, to perform different tricks that not only sharpen your skills, but also amaze people.

You have probably seen Pen Spinning in one form or another. Perhaps it was a classmate who was spinning her pen effortlessly around her Thumb. Or you may have seen someone on TV or YouTube doing crazy stunts with a pen. Either way, if you are still not sure what PS is, head on to our Tricks section and start exploring.

Here's a video I made in 2003 that shows what PS is all about. And no, it's not just something you do because you're bored in class. Credits go to De'vo from Superhandz for the original soundtrack.
