Nachdem Sanis auf Turnieren nur das Nötigste tun (müssen), es aber mit Zerrungen, Muskelkrämpfen oder auch einfach Unsicherheit bei Beschwerden durchaus darüber hinaus Bedarf gibt, würde ich gerne mal nachhören, wer von Euch mit medizinischem Hintergrund dabei wäre, sich als solcher auf Turnieren zu erkennen zu geben -- mittels (schicker Name muss sein, ist ja klar) des Ordo physicorum. Nach dem Motto: "Ich bin in bestimmten medizinischen Bereichen kompetent, Ihr könnt mich gern fragen, wenn Ihr entsprechende Beschwerden habt".
In English: Currently, I am working on founding a nation-wide "tournament medics" group. Folks who are competent in different areas of health may "advertise" that through membership, at tournaments and so be visible as advisers if players are in need (from sprung ankles to muscular pain and such). They are no replacement for standard paramedics!
Could be interesting on an international level as well. I think YouTube does do automatic translations for subs (well does it?).

A video on the history of the Jugger chain and why it evolved as it did, as well as one about the German Refereeing Rules and Best Practice, are live now:
UPDATE: It is done! Watch the video.
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.
For those who seek inspiration and advice for their Jugger trainings, there are some new videos out on YouTube.
What is Jugger [ver 1.0]
After 12 years, and 30 years after the release of the movie "Blood of Heroes", the original What is Jugger introduction video (ver. 0.85a) has been completely redone and now went live as What is Jugger 1.0, on YouTube.
A Complete Training
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!
Addendum: Commented Finals at Deutsche Meisterschaft 2019 by Jugger Masterclass
Okay, this is not a training tutorial by itself, but it is brilliantly done: A professional sports channel-looking recording, including SloMos and live comments, of the DM 2019 Finals in Berlin. Ansolutely worth watching and a good way to learn by the techniques of these two top-level Jugger teams!
