Damn I wish was closer to where all this is going down....
Woah...this is literally down the street from me.
Hell, the least I can do is show up and watch. These SoCal Pankration tournies almost always have quality competitors, and the ruleset allows the grappling to remain technical.
Here is another Highlight video:

We are working on Virginia.
Sweet. Virginia is a little closer to my neck of the woods than Cali. Is there a website or something where we can check for upcoming Pankration events, event results, etc?
