    I understand people have difficulty not to laugh if they see the belt grip-Glima, but I have seen a demo in the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds, England, a few years ago, and I must say that their footsweeps and throwing techniques are actually very good. No doubt about that.

    They, of course, could consider to use the loose/free grip as demonstration, for this belt grip looks quite odd.

    Do you know ( of ) these guys?

    They seem legit but I've been fooled before.

    Seeing as it is a tradition stretching back for at least a millennium in my own country I would love to at least get acquainted with the sport if not wholeheartedly participate in it.

    Glima (the Icelandic wrestling sport) is undoubtedly legit, both in terms of historical lineage and as a combat sport. As I understand it, Broktak is a reconstruction of old Norwegian wrestling based largely on Glima, but presumably also including more-or-less speculative elements based on historical records.

    There are various traditional belt-grip wrestling styles throughout Europe and the Baltic states:

    They sure like to post with their hands a lot. Anyone know what the wrist injury rate is like?

    The best lead to go to is Lars Enoksen, he is from Sweden.

    The website for contact and info:

    http://www.viking-glima.com/

    contact info is on this page:

    http://www.viking-glima.com/contact.html

    These people are legit as far as I know and they are also very pleasant people to have around.

    Fighting predates humanity. It seems unlikely that hand to hand fighting could really have originated in only one place before being spread from there.

    I agree.

    My point is that it is not just lunatics suggesting that Alexander's greeks brought systemized martial arts to Asia.

    To be perfectly fair, it's a lot more likely than the commonly repeated belief that some bald headed, cave meditating, aesthetic is responsible for Asian martial arts.

    How likely is THAT? But lots of people believe it and repeat it as gospel without being thought of as huffing mercury.

    Peace favor your sword,

    Fug, you're quoting from a frame on the bullshido page, that's got nothing to do with Mr.Fist's breek-tak wrestling post.

    And why the soft-southern-bastards do you Mr. Fist have to 'translate' broktak to anything other than breek-tak? : our dialects are alive and well, just a bit out of fashion.
    ... the revival of the old Norwegian wrestling style of Broktak, "pantsgrip" literally,...

    Isn't there a big "who actually started the martial arts" thread somewhere else here on Bullshido?

    Anyhow, my father is a zoologist, and I can tell you one thing, Chimpanzees have the most powerful gung fu. Those guys can really work the empty-hand techniques, and they have it all, striking, grappling, biting..

    I guess martial arts originated in Africa. But there is no African martial arts forum :-(

    There needs to be a whole forum non-pacific rim asian, non-western section that includes Polynesian, Native American, Australian Aboriginal, African and South Asian martial arts.

    What about Middle eastern martial arts? I know that wrestling styles are big in Turkey and Iran.
