    Military Pankration

    The Warriors Challenge II will be held May 28th at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton. This event will include an open Youth and Teen Division ( open to all styles and schools )and a All Miltary Pankration Tournament, open to Active, Reserve and IRR. Each division will be separated by weight. Weight Brackets will be determined the day of the event so there is no need to cutweight.*** We will add a pure beginner Military division if enough enter***

    If you are a Civilian we will have The Battle of Champions IV tournament to be held May 21st at Imperial Beach, San Diego. This event is promoted by Victor Beltran of the Boxing Zone. Amateur competitors from all styles and schools are welcome to compete. This tournament is for Adults only.

    Pankration tournaments allow strikes to the body, takedowns and submissions. Safety and sportsmanship are stressed. Each match is 3 minutes long and the tournament is double elimination with a consolation bracket for 3rd place.These are Intermediate level tournaments *** but game beginners are also welcome.

    Pankration tournaments are geared towards recreational Mixed Martial Artist's or prospective MMA fighters needing experience prior to starting out. No Pro Fighters allowed.

    Mouthpiece and Cup are required to compete. MMA or Grappling style gloves are needed, we will have some on hand if you don't have your own. Wrestling/ Martial Arts shoes are optional as well as other protective padding. For a complete listing of rules check our web site.

    A Referee and rules clinic will be held prior to the events.

    Jeez, why can't the Air Force have cool things like a pankration tournament?


    Oh wait, nevermind, I just remembered why (ie. most of the USAF is a bunch of, excuse the non-PC language, slack-jawed faggots who would squeal like a bunch of stuck pigs if someone slapped a submission on them). I just need to bite the bullet and cross over to the Marine Corps with my little brother. Finishing my time in this Big Blue version of OfficeSpace is driving me nuts.

    Sounds like a cool idea, I'll have to ask my brother if they have any plans to do something like this up at Camp Lejune.
    "I had once talked to Billy Conn, the boxer, about professionals versus amateurs - specifically street fighters. One had always heard rumors of champions being taken out by back-alley fighters. Conn was scornful. "Aw, it's like hitting a girl," he said. "They're nothing."

    Victor of SoCalPankration runs a tight operation from my experience. Anyone interested in getting a feel for amatuer MMA outta give it a try. The lack of headstrikes is kinda a plus and minus, but it's a great way to try out whatcha learned in a safe environemtn.

    Yeah I was, but that's partly why I like it. It forces you to get good at your weak points.
