I recently had the opportunity to learn how to effectively use this device at a training conference I was teaching at and now I am in the process of becoming a certified instructor in the use of it.

This story might be a work of Fiction but this author, and his impressive background, are Fact!
I happen to be an avid reader of martial arts and combat related books. I enjoy both technical books containing information of how to perform certain techniques but I also enjoy martial arts and related novels and books of fictional stories and characters. I especially enjoy those books that describe police or law enforcement officers who are involved in stories where martial arts play a strong role in the theme and storyline.

General George Patton once said…
“The object of war is not to die for your country, but to make the other bastard die for his.”
While this battlefield mantra has been a driving force in our military mind-set, applied to the reality of how to win a real street fight, these words ring just as true.
I’ve seen countless street fights where the person “losing” the battle just gives up…basically curling up into a ball and waiting for the kicks and punches to stop.
Sometimes they do…and sometimes they don’t.
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.

Soldiers stationed on Fort Drum participated in the 10th Mountain Division Combatives Tournament held April 25 and 26 at Magrath Sports Complex.
The tournament was open to all active-duty and reserve Soldiers in the area. It pitted all who came to compete within the installation against each other.
Before the matches began, instructors from Fort Drum’s Light Fighter School gave a Modern Army Combatives demonstration, explaining some of the main rules and the purpose of the technique.
