FILA is the International Governing Body for Pankration and represents the sport in all Olympic matters. USA Pankration and USA Wrestling are the United States representatives to the World Committee and FILA.
Together, our goal is Pankration re-instated to the Olympic Games
Pankration is the oldest Martial art on record and was the most prestigious event of the Ancient Olympics. The rules were brutal and simple, all but eye gouging and biting was allowed while the referees enforced their rules with a large stick.
Modern Pankration is a Martial Arts that encompasses Grappling, Limited Contact and Full Contact Competitions. Rules emphasize technique and sportsmanship at all levels. The amateur program presents a safe sport suitable for competitors of all ages from all styles of Martial Art. The United States Fight League provides the safest and most progressive route to prepare for International Amateur Competition or a professional fighting career.
Rules are progressive and consistent for each level of combat:
"C" Class rules consist of FILA style Grappling.
“B” Class rules allow Grappling combined with Limited contact strikes.
“A” Class rules allow Grappling combined with Full contact strikes.
Our athletes have an opportunity to compete at the Local, State, National and World Level.
