    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    International Olympic Level Event for Grappling, Pankration, Muay Thai, Sambo & more

    The World Combat Games is an Olympic Type Event that will focus on Combative Sports. These games are sanctioned by Sportsaccord which is an affiliate of the International Olympic Committee. This event will repeat every two or four years.

    The 1st World Combat Games is scheduled for Aug 28 to Sept 4th in China.

    The Sports include FILA Wrestling (Specifically Freestyle, Grappling and Pankration), Wu Shu ( San Shou Figting and Wu Shu Forms) , Boxing, Judo, Muay Thai, Karate, Japanese Ju Jitsu, Kickboxing, Sumo, Taekwondo, Kendo, Sambo and a Akido demo. We are especially thankful to FILA who fought to include the disciplines of Grappling and Pankration in these Games!! Hopfully Sportsaccord and a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation will eventually work together and get BJJ into the future games.

    All athletes have qualified from their sports World Sanctioning Body and will receive an all expenses trip to include accommodations for these Games in China.

    Here is a short informational Video

    He said it was a demo, not competition. Though it would be interesting to see two Aikido student go at it full tilt.
