Patterns Search

The idea (Julian Orbach's idea) is to solve the following problem: We are 4 jugglers of different levels (say 1 very good, 2 average and 1 beginner). What patterns can we do ? This search will only give results among the patterns section.

In order to do that, I first had to define some different levels of jugglers. This is not so easy since many parameters have to be taken into account: ability to play with different rhythms and feed them, to move while juggling, to do dropbacks, to throw long passes, ...
I've given below the 4 levels I've used. You may disagree with them. Be also aware that it's always better to underestimate your level: increasing the difficulty of a pattern is way easier than the reverse.
