“To stand firm among the ruins, you have to actively oppose your lower impulses and shallow drives by pushing yourself over the cliff of conformity and taking that leap of fate which will elevate you above the herd mentality of the unwashed ignorant plebian masses which venerate this abominable gynecocracy regime of cultural distortion.

Developed out of an existing ancient combat system, Pankration was part of the army training of many Greek city-states. It was the core of the military instruction of the hoplites (the famous Greek infantry). The Spartans were particularly well-trained and excelled in that art. In their last stand at Thermopylae, they allegedly used Pankration skills as their final weapon. Once the 300 lost their armaments, they fought with bare hands, feet, and teeth, relying on their abilities to use unarmed fighting techniques.
