Germany has been the very first country where Jugger has evolved into real-world sports. Yet until today, there is no assocation of any kind which would stand for Jugger in Germany; instead, we have the rulekeeper comittee, a Jugger League council, local league councils, and the German forums.
Recently, the discussions from 2011 about whether or not to form an association has come up again, accompanied by a survey, and kindled -- finally -- the forming of a national association. Nothing is set yet, but talks are intensifying.
The International Jugger Council, a recently formed body with representatives from many Jugger countries, has now published their website. Visit it to get help and information about international Jugger questions, and to gain access to the Council's Discord Server; it is not only for council members, but open to everyone to chat about international Jugger topics!
The history of the sports of Jugger is quite interesting. It started in two areas of Germany independently around 1993, as far as we know. The two branches had their differences, which then fruited the first communal rulebook in 2007. Arund 1992, there has been an US LARP version, but that didn't seem to take hold.
A call to all Master Chain players in Jugger: Uhu is currently collecting takes of the best chain player moves, to assemble them in a chain masterclass video. Read the twitter post.
We already have received a number of excellent clips, but it is still time for more—so if you are a master chain, grab your spar and send your favourite special moves! See Uhus Learn the Chain 101 Class for Beginners as an example below (though the techniques there are repeated for training purposes).
Anti-Chain techniques will also follow ... later!
Tech details: 720p landscape, zoom in on player, each technique front and one side, around 10 seconds per take; mp4 link via Mediafire, Google Drive etc. is fine.
Lester, founder of the Berlin Jugger branch, has assembled a fantastic, huge, colourful poster about the development of Jugger since it's beginnings. It is done from a German perspective but incorporates the international development as well.
In Jugger Coach: Uhus Jugger Tutorials XI, a complete training session is presented as a quick walkthrough, featuring techniques from warm-up, individual skill training up to team training and team building.
A Comprehensive Guide to the Basics
Also, a new tutorial series has surfaced recently: "Der Königsweg" by Peter's Pawns features comprehensive and pointed, well-made focus tutorials on certain aspects, starting with the base stance for differnt spars types. Language is German, but it's absolutely worth to check it out!
