As a form of Greek mixed martial arts, Pankration has gained worldwide recognition and has become a very popular form of competition. Our Pankration community is continuing to grow widely throughout the United States, which makes it a very exciting time for everyone involved.

The USA Federation of Pankration Athlima (USAFPA) is an organization that supports all of its members with the pride, discipline, and support to help them reach their full potential in not only the sport of Pankration but also in their day to day lives.

The USAFPA also provides a belt ranking system thats lineage begins directly from Greece and can be added to any current gym's curriculum.
