"The greater the difficulty, the more the glory in surmounting it."
Battle Grappling started in 2020 from a popular smoker we ran out of Bellingham Mixed Martial Arts from 2015-2018. Battle Pankration is the reinvention of that smoker. We are back and giving new athletes a chance to compete before it counts. Combat Smokers are a great way for young upcoming athletes to dip their feet in and see what they think of combat sports. Battle Pankration is a live combat show and is not streamed. It's about experiencing watching a show live and in person!
