Abstract:

Martial artists Jason Chambers and Bill Duff travel to Greece to learn Pankration. "With its aggressive, unyielding combination of boxing and grappling, Pankration is a devastating whole-body technique. A centerpiece of Ancient Greek (as well as Macedonian, Spartan and others) culture, it was the highlight of the original Olympics. From back alley gyms to the oldest standing fortress in all of Greece, our hosts immerse themselves in the origins of wrestling, boxing, grappling and kickboxing and come to understand why Pankration has inspired art and literature and martial arts for centuries."--History Channel
