BACKHOLD GLIMA rules to be used are these:

Opponants place arms about eachother, each with one arm over one of the opponants arms, and one arm under the other of his opponants arms. Hands must be clasped at the back. Opponants look over eachother's right shoulders.

At “Lay on” the fighters attempt to win by:

1. making their opponant touch the ground first with any part of the body other than the soles of the feet.
2. Forcing the opponant to step with both feet outside of the hide boundaries or any part of his body.
3. If either contestant unclasps his hands, he looses.

FREESTYLE GLIMA rules to be used are these:

Opponants start from opposite ends of the hide. They may use any grip to make their opponant touch the ground with any part of their body other than the soles of the feet or the palms of the hands, or push him so that both his feet touch ground outside of the hide.

Award: A tassel of intertwined red and gray



Aside from the the copy/paste, challenges are not limited to just War Wolves. Any person from another unit (or not part of a unit) my try their hands at any challenge. If you wish to partake in a challenge, you must first ask either Konradr Leader of the War Wolves, Oddvar the Terrible, James 'Templar' Stoneheart, or Izzy and Convel of the War Wolves. They will then prepare the challenge were any may volunteer after the first challenger(s) have gone first.
