Chocfest 2015 Fight Night

Congratulations to Johnny Malcolm for winning the Chocfest 2015 Fight Night. This is his second win in a row, a followup to his victory at the Cambridge 2014 Fight Night.

Johnny beat Dan Wood in the final, the winner of the Durham 2014 Fight Night. Johnny also went unbeaten qualifications at Chocfest 2015.

This win means Johnny enters the top 10 in the current rankings for this first, and extends his winning streak to 6 tournament matches. How do you think he’ll do at the British Juggling Convention 2015?

14 jugglers took part in the Chocfest 2015 event, a 250 level tournament, with 8 in the knockout. Josh Turner came third and Jon Peat came fourth. Thanks to Jon for organizing the tournament.

Galileo TV Show Feature on Combat in Berlin

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!

Juggling on Ice 2015 Fight Night

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?
