Someone told me that in some pankration tournaments, you are not allowed to strike once on the ground, but I saw no mention of this in the rules for this tournament. Anyone have any information on that? Was the person I was talking to just misinformed? Just curious, because its in the area and I was thinking of going.
You can strike on the ground , Here are the rules with 6 minute rules video demo.
