Hird Holmgang bouts are based on the historical holmgang and offer the participants a chance to enter a “life and death” situation where avoiding being hit is vital. Each round is thus ended with an “incapacitating strike” that would have put an unarmored fighter down. Needless to say, the Hird fighters wear extensive protection. Those wanting to try fighting a Holmgang duel can do so with latex weapons.
