24th, 25th and 26th of May 2013 in Tønsberg, Norway with Kevin Secours and Mike Malpass

Systema Norway HQ have the honor of inviting you to the third Battle of the Vikings seminar in beautiful Tønsberg, Norway. The Director of the International Combat Systema Association, Kevin Secours, will once again teach an intensive seminar in the oldest city of Norway. In addition we have the great honor of having S.W.A.T. Team Officer and Combat Systema Instructor Mike Malpass from Phoenix, Arizona to teach a special 3 hrs session on Friday night.

The very first BOTV seminar was conducted in June 2008, with 28 participants from 5 different nations. In April 2011 we had a total of 41 participants from 7 different nations. This time we're aiming even higher, and have already received participants registrating from England, Canada, USA, Denmark and Sweden.

Come join us in Systema Norway's home town, Tønsberg! You know...the town that was portrayed in both "Thor" and "Captain America". This is an old Viking city dating back almost 1150 years and has served as home to several legendary kings.

This seminar will be dedicated to "The Blade". Meaning; we will train in offensive and defensive knife work from any imaginable position and scenario. Kevin has some serious and realistic knife work to offer, and every participant must bring a training knife. Preferably in metal, but wood and solid plastic/rubber also works.

When and Where?

The seminar will be held in the main building of Slottsfjellskolen in the middle of Tønsberg city. This school is 20 meters away from Systema Norway HQ so this will be our rendevouz point. The HQ is located at Baglergaten 16 (it might be hard to track down on a GPS), just below the old fortress tower on the hill (Slottsfjelltårnet). Drive up from the east side of the mountain/hill. You'll se a big, old stone building so just drive around the back to the school court. If you're asking locals for direction, just ask for "Slottsfjellskolen".

Friday: 18.00 - 21.00

Saturday/Sunday: 10.00 - 16.00


Saturday Night Dinner

We'll have a delicious dinner together at the school on Saturday evening at 19.00. We have a Turkish chef that will master up an awesome dinner buffet with lots to eat for both vegans and carnevors. Beer will be sold at the scene.
