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!​

2

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.

Merits for active players

To motivate people to get involved into the organizational aspects of Jugger, a merit roundel may be of help to show their personal achievements. ⇒ The player position symbols/icon set with eps/png downloads can be found here../p>

Hall of Fame: The First Ones

Jugger often starts thanks to the attachment and sweat of one or a few persons who, against all odds, hold to the thought that there must be Jugger in their country (and, most important, close to them). When Jugger starts rolling in their country, they have rightfully earned a shining title for their achievement: That of the "Jugger zero", or "Juggermaster zero". The name is inspired by their wish that Jugger will spread through the country like a positive kind of epidemic. And first sources of those are also called the "Number Zero".

To honour those first ones, here comes the list of Jugger zero's around the world. It is, of course, incomplete and needs your help to be continued—contact us if you know one more, or detect an error or inaccurate report!
Also, this "Hall of Fame" will be completed with photos and a more appealing layout, of course.

"I am Jugger" documentary online

For years, Alejandro Asensi travelled to Juggers around the world to complete his the "I am Jugger" documentary. Interviews with Jugger players and Jugger community brains of many countries and insights into many international tournaments shed a brilliant light on the complexity of this unusual sport.
Enjoy!
