The United States Fight League is a IRS 501 c 3 non profit regulatory and sanctioning organization that fosters and supports Youth and Military Pankration

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.

Donate to the USFL 
All funds donated are tax deductible and managed by the parental advisory committee, 100% of donated funds are for support of youth athletes & teams.  

Modern Pankration is a milder alternative for Mixed Martial Arts that encompasses Grappling and Limited Contact Striking. Rules emphasize technique and sportsmanship making this a safe sport, suitable for competitors of all ages from all styles of Martial Art.

The primary emphasis of the USFL is to develop strong youth character from rigorous competition.

Rules are progressive and consistent for each level of combat:

"C"

Class rules consist of Grappling and Submissions.

"B"

Class rules allow Limited Contact Strikes combined with Grappling.

"A"

Class rules allow Limited Contact Strikes combined with Grappling and Submissions.

Our athletes have an opportunity to compete at the Local, State, National and World Level.
