OVERVIEW: This group is for men and women of all backgrounds interested in Viking-age culture and combat. We gather every week to train in live steel combat techniques and learn the many skills of the Viking age.
GROUP WEBSITE: vikingirish.org.
(1) We do most of our coordinating via Facebook--you must be willing to use Facebook daily for this purpose to participate in the group.
(2) We are not a casual group from which to come and go--what we do takes commitment and mutual support. Please consider whether you can afford to spend most Saturdays from 2-7pm with us. If that's unreasonable, we are not the group for you.
(3) Recruiting of new Fighters is currently closed, and re-opens MAY 14th, 2016. Recruiting of Hearth members is still open.
We draw our inspiration from the worldwide influence of the Jomsborg, a group of Modern Vikings. For more about the Jomsborg, see their website for this region and "To Go Viking"--a recent documentary made about the group
