Last year a camera crew came to Berlin to shoot a feature on combat, focusing on the rivalry between Eóin Allan and Jochen Pfeiffer. It’s actually really good! Even if you don’t understand German, it’s still worth a watch.
If you’re currently in Germany, Austria or Switzerland, you can watch it on the Galileo website.
If you’re not in Germany, Austria or Switzerland, you can find a low quality version on Facebook.
My only complaint is that, inevitably, the presenter says it’s “from the USA”. Not only is Fight Night Combat (and team combat) not from the USA, and there has never been a Fight Night in the USA, but for many years it was mainly played, and won, by the very people shown in the video, in Berlin!

With 26 jugglers entering qualification, Juggling On Ice 2015 upgraded to a 250 point tournament from last year’s 125 points level. Tony Pezzo and Luke Burrage were seeded first and second, and met in the final. Tony beat Luke in qualification, but could he repeat it when playing to seven points and with the pressure of being in his first FNC final? Luke had gone unbeaten in his previous eight matches, but could he continue his streak to nine matches and three 250 level tournament titles?

Jochen Pfeiffer was the only juggler to take part in multiple tournaments and remain unbeaten throughout 2014. His winning streak ran to 13 matches and 4 tournaments, including the EJC, Berlin, Hamburg and Karlsruhe Fight Nights. Let’s see if he can continue his unbeaten streak until the end of 2015… the smart money would be on “Yes”!
Here are some highlights from FNC players placed 8 to 4 in the end of year rankings. Enjoy!
