    Historical Pankration article

    I browse the Pankration sites from time to time and this caught my eye. Fascinating stuff by Mike Carter:

    Thanks for the link and your research!
    Kung fu is translated as "stand around and talk."

    It seems the writer did not notice that this stance "the back stance" is the same stance a hoplite used: the spear in the right hand, the shield on the left.

    I think there might be some new information on this site since this thread was opened. I really enjoyed reading some of it, and it will take me weeks to finish all of these very long, well-written articles.

    An interesting modern Pankration history tidbit you might not know about:

    kickcatcher was certified as an instructor in a bogus Pankration org from the UK set up by a TMA fruit who kickcatcher had a soft spot for.
