In times gone by it was common practice for every able bodied man to learn basic fighting skills, not only to defend himself and his family, but also if he was called up to fight in the Fyrd.
The Odinic Fyrd promotes the idea that every able bodied person should know some basic fighting skills for exactly the same reasons above.
Martial arts are systems of codified practices and traditions of training for combat. While they may be studied for various reasons, martial arts share a single objective: to physically defeat other persons and to defend oneself or others from physical threat.
The Fyrd Training Programme is an entry level introduction to the martial arts, and once learned and practiced regularly, will stand you in good stead against a would be aggressor, as well as improving your confidence and fitness.
ORV Team Fyrd & Team Fyrd England consist of OR Members who train & compete regularly in combat sports such as Wrestling, Grappling, Muay Thai, Jujitsu and Mixed Martial Arts.
