Mu Tau Pankration (Volume I / Concepts and Skills of All-Powers Combat

“Greek Pankration, once the cornerstone of the early Olympic games, is the only fully documented fighting form of the pre-Christian era. Does this fact make Europe, and not Asia, the birthplace of martial disciplines? The world recognized “father” of modern pankration reveals significant evidence, tracing the evolution of this ancient sport from its classic origins and myths to its adaptation for self-defense and “reality-based” competition today. This book contains hundreds of dynamic photographs, illustrations, and artwork.” (from blurb)
