In a collapse of civil order, a riot can break out in any number of scenarios…
- A Natural disaster that causes food shortages
- Political unrest that triggers protests
- Desperate revolt at food/water distribution points
- Looting during a civil breakdown
Of course you can try to avoid these types of scenarios, but the reality is, you may find yourself thrust into any one of them in the strange, uncertain times we’re currently facing and be forced to know how to survive a collapse.
Glima: The Vikings’ Forgotten Art
Everyone has heard of the Vikings but who has heard of Glima?
Glima is an ancient form of unarmed Viking wrestling that was a very effective form of combat in the 8th through 11th centuries. Vikings used all sorts of weaponry such as swords, axes, knives, and other items but they also had a structured form of unarmed combatives. The word “Glima” means “A Flash,” and it is also an Old Norse expression meaning “To Fight.” Currently, Glima is still practiced, most commonly in Iceland, in spite of its larger origins throughout old Scandinavia.
