Jochen Pfeiffer started juggling when he was 11 years old in 1989 and played his first round of combat juggling 5 years later. After studying mathematics, he decided to focus on his juggling and performed a duo act 'Get the Shoe' all around the world with awards from Monte-Carlo Circus Festival, Cirque de Demain Paris, WUQIAO Circus Festival China and Moscow Circus Festival. Jochen stopped performing in 2013 and has been working as a software developer. He never stopped playing combat though and won his 10th EJC Fight Night in 2017.
Alex has been juggling for 13 years and competing in european combat tournaments for 10. Since his first EJC Fight Night finals appearance at the EJC Joensuu in 2010, he has been a perennial top 5 player, holding even or winning records against the best players europe has to offer. After an injury cut his 2019 season short, he is hungry to prove his mettle against international competition at WJF15. Outside of juggling, Alex is currently earning a Phd in pure mathematics at the Freie Universität Berlin.
