Combat GLIMA (Viking Wrestling)

Combat Glima is the most brutal and efficient style of Glima, but it is always practised with the honourable attitude that characterizes the training-sessions of the Viking martial arts.  The aim with Combat Glima is to be the fighter standing when the other fighter is lying down on the ground. If both fighters fall to the ground, the aim is to wrestle your way free and stand up as quickly as possible. The fight continues as long as the two fighters are within reach of each other.
