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.

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.


"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!

"I am Jugger" documentary crowdfunding

"I am Jugger" is the upcoming documentary prepared by Alejandro Asensi Barbera. He currently raises funds through IndieGoGo to realize this quite impressive sounding project, which should become very international:

I am Jugger follows Jugger players all around the world and will share the lives of these young athletes; their impressions and styles of play, capturing the passion they feel for this sport and show the differences to other major sports and the activity in different countries like Spain, Germany, Ireland and United States. We travel with a select group of jugger players to the World Tournament in Berlin, where they will try to win the ultimate prize in this relatively unknown sport.

We will see different explanations of the rules, styles and strategies used by different teams, and follow them as they train and prepare for games together.
