Glima wrestling made in Iceland

Icelandic tradition

In constant movement from a strong and agile but erect posture with fixed holds the wrestlers attempt to trip each other.

The Glima competition rules are governed by Glímusamband Íslands, the national Icelandic Glíma association.

International popularisation

The International Glima Association is working towards popularisation of Glima outside of Iceland, targeting its recognition as a contemporary sport which has evolved in unbroken tradition from the Viking era a thousand years ago.
