The Miklagard Ulflag are a Varangian Guard warrior formation, our warriors train regularly in the established JomsViking fighting system which can commonly be described as Steel MMA (Steel Mixed Martial Arts) or Competitive Steel combat which has been held in North London for over a decade, with the majority of members based around London, we have grown to a international level, which includes warriors of The Ulflag up and down the country and around the world.
Our members range from experienced fighters both competitively and in showmanship, to those completely new to the culture of a ‘modern viking’. We participate in a variety of events and activites including Film & TV, Gaming Industry, and other media work, living history demonstrations and lectures for schools and other educational institutions. Miklagard Ulflag also take part and demonstrate both publically and privately our show fighting where we have participated in battles which have included over 20,000-60,000 members of public watching our battles and performances.
Specifically, our work with promotional companies, TV Documentaries, Gaming, Film, and Sports Channels are vast, we usually work several times a year in this area, as some contracts can last months, others for a single day.

The Ulflag and its warriors:
The Ulfag hosts a world class warhost of warriors nationally and internationally, who travel far and wide to find what we refer to as the way of The Modern Viking with members across the country further abroad, we welcome you to join us!
The best way to describe the organisation, is a region, of province in the kingdom of Gardariki (Varangian) who have served time in Byzantium as Varangian Guard. Culturally we portray a melting pot of Eastern Viking, Slavic and Rus peoples, under the leader (Akoulothos / Prince) who governs the region as war leader and lord (Vojvoda). When we are not at events or fighting battles, we train regularly, or are working on contracts, we also meet up socially as we have the age old saying “friends first, warriors second”. To ensure our Viking Age clothing is at optimal levels, we regularly have workshops making armour, shields or clothing, be it repairing tents, making new shields, or making adjustments to Lammellar, its a never ending struggle to keep our warriors armed to the teeth and ready to engage the field of battle at a moments notice.
All members of The Miklagard Ulflag are expected to portray Vikings, Rus Vikings, Slavs / warriors who served in The Varangian Guard from the 10th-11th Century, or people fro the region of Gardariki.
A part as equally as important as the Ulflag is the hearth, these are the members of the Ulflag organisation which aren’t combatants,and hold an interest in the crafting of Viking age items. This part of the organisation is equally as important as the fighters, from leather workers to wood/bone carvers, authentic historical viking clothing and more its our aim to encourage a community of like minded enthusiasts and friends.
With a range of warriors, and Hearth members, our mission is to be the premier organisation portraying viking age life, and we take great pride in the crafting we have cultivated.
