This week we're getting hands on as Mathias and Daniel are sitting down with Qays Stetkevych an expert in medieval combat, grappling, and wrestling in medieval literature. He has been an active competitor in wrestling, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for twenty years. Qays is here to help the boys grapple with the past and hopefully make some sense of "Glima," and those pesky facebook adverts for "viking martial arts". The answers may not be complicated but they're sure to be brollic!
