Viking Training System
25 years of experience in education and coachingis condensed into a proven training system based around strength, power and endurance. And now, to compliment the strength, power and endurance of the Vikings is their very own combat system.
My name is James Simpson, I have extensive experience in martial arts and self defence, I started out training in traditional martial arts such as aikido, jiu-jitsu and karate, I then moved on to reality based self defense systems and became an instructor.
Steven Scott has been training in martial arts since 1980 studying Judo Shukokai Karate and Aikido and now he also teaches Sport & Combat Glima as an accredited instructor at West of Scotland Glima, a UKGF Foundtion Academy.
