Show your Achievements: Jugger merit roundels

Jugger merit roundels
So you are very fond of Jugger and put time and love into this wonderful sport. You spread the fascination to others, educate them how to play or how to make good spars. Or you struggle organizing that one big tournament every year that the community loves to attend.
Yet, what about motivating your team mates to get a bit more involved in the organizational hassle of Jugger themselves, by making their engagement a bit more visible, so that their work may be appreciated by others?

To achieve this, I thought about creating these Jugger merit roundel. They offer a way to show the merits you earn during your Jugger life with an »evolving« emblem, without having to change the roundel itself. So you can print the basic roundel on your jersey in your first year and than just add all that which you achieve over time.

Women and Jugger:

In the words of Maka:
"We gathered some testimonies of female players of Jugger, regarding their experience as women in the sport. This is what they had to say."



This is not only a brilliant video, it also fits perfectly: I am currently planning an Uhus Jugger Tutorials about training aspects in regard of teh specific needs of women. If you have any expertise on that, you are welcome to share your knowledge for the UJT.

Poster for trainings of the Swedish Jugger Project

I have prepared a poster for Projekt: Jugger i Sverige which offers an overview over some basic training techniques. It also fits well to my Uhus Jugger Tutorials IIX: Training techniques YouTube video.
The draft version, available here, is in English, while the final will be in Swedish and available at the Swedish Jugger Association Svenska juggerförbundet.

Meet Juggers from Russia

Salut, Juggers!​

I'm pleased to let you know that Jugger is played in Russia also. We do that regularly since 2016.

This kind of fascinating sport game appeared in some Russian cities bit early. But only in Togliatti, Samara Region, on the shore of the Volga River, Jugger settled permanently. Togliatti is about 2200 km from Sweden, 2500 km from Germany and 12000 km from Australia :-)

Later we "invaded" next town called Zhigulevsk. There we've already had two Jugger tournaments with the support of the town government. The town's stadium is pretty good, modern and has more than 1500 seats, look at the following photos:

So we enjoy playing there.

But most of the time we play and train in local places. At winter we rent an indoor court, because it is a bit inconvenient to play Jugger in snowdrifts. 

Yes, we did that!

So, that's it, I think. If you have questions, you are welcome to comments.

P.S. Ah, yes, some links below:

 

testing: Aikido Jo techniques for the Q-Tip

People often wonder how effective martial arts experience would be in Jugger. Frankly, I don't know. So let's try to apply it. In this video, I transferred Aikido Jo techniques to the Jugger Q-Tip.
