History of PANCRASE
"The Father of Mixed Martial Arts"
The origin of UFC-type
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) dates back to the ancient Greek Olympic
games. First introduced in 648 B.C. at the 33rd Olympiad, a form of
free-style martial arts called Pancration (Pancrase) would soon
become the most popular and demanding of all athletic sports. Olympic
Pancration integrated every physical and mental resource; hands and
feet, mind and spirit, in the closest simulation of competitive fighting
that any culture has ever allowed. It was considered the ultimate
Olympic sport for over a thousand years.
However, it was more
than just a sport. Called by Philostratos the "Worthiest ontest in the
Olympiads and the most important preparation for warriors", Pancration
was the martial training of the Greek and Spartan armies and was taken
to India with the legions of Alexander the Great, where it became the
accepted ancestor of the oriental martial arts.
is experiencing a worldwide re-birth with an increasing number of
martial artists and athletes being drawn to the ancient "King of Olympic
Sports". Pancrase MMA is the ultimate martial art of modern times.
