|This largely repeats the information on the Outside Throw page, but it deserves repeating.
When juggling an ordinary three ball cascade, the throws come up more-or-less in the middle, the catches are made a little outside shoulder width, and the overall pattern is a figure of eight (on its side.)
As you do this your hands (roughly) make a circle, rising in the middle, catching on the outside. From your point of view the right hand goes clockwise, and the left hand goes anti-clockwise.
|It must be said that this definition is perhaps not universally accepted, but it is widely agreed.
This definition even works when the arms are crossed, or the hand is on the "wrong" side of the body. If your right hand goes clockwise then it's still an Inside Throw, even if the hand is on the left side of the body, which means that the throw is outside shoulder width and the catch is in the middle.
