The Northstorm as division of Jomsborg was founded in 2010 together with the South-, West- and Eaststorm. The Leader of the Northstorm is Marc Becker (Jomsviking, Germany)
It's currently consists of the following groups, called Lags :
Feykir from Germany with about 25 fighters under the command of Kai as styrsman, see banner below:
Franci Saravi from Germany with 10 fighters under the command of Arnulf as Styrsman, see banner below:
Vargroed from South Tyrol with about 10 fighters under the command of Grimmi as Styrsman, see banner below:
Wydar , from Belgium and Netherlands with about 10 fighters under the command of Bruno as Styrsman
Ulvescare, from Netherlands with about 25 fighters under the command of Sjoerd as Styrsman
Sveitungar from Germany with about 10 fighters under the command of Mark as Styrsman
The Freedrengir, warriors of Jomsborg who do not belong to a Lag.
In total more than 100 fighters (drengir) are organized within the Northstorm. Together with about 25 non-combattants (household) and several prospects, this division consists of well over a hundred people. The international brotherhood and the comradeship which such a huge, widespread organisation can provide, as well as the honour of belonging to one of the oldest viking organisations, leads us to follow the banners of Jomsborg.
Our primary interest is the sport of « medieval swordfighting » in different fighting styles. We also focus on authentic equipment, which has enabled good relationships and cooperation with different museum villages in many countries. We take part in viking period events all over Europe, from Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, UK, Scandinavia, Poland to Italy.
