Just a quick note here:

For the seventh time, international teams have met at Järnsvenskan. During the last week-end, they fought for the skull at Sweden`s annual international Jugger festival, except for 2017 organized by the Uhu and Järnboås IF.
Along with the tournament itself, Järnsvenskan has bands on stage, a sauna and a very comfy lake ... no wonder it attracts teams of different countries, all of them traveling to the small village of Järnboås, Bergslagen, every year. There have been USA, Australia, Russia, Ireland (every year except in 2019), Germany (every year) , Latvia, Lithuania, and many players from other countries battling over the skull.
This is a collection of international Jugger rulebooks, including historical versions, where available. Countries in order of the fact-based knowledge of introduction of Jugger to them, where applicable, otherwise of their first rulebook's appearance.
If you know other national Jugger rulebooks, you are most welcome to drop us a note!
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.

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.
