    120 competitors in 21 divisions participated in the 4th Annual California Pankration Championships

    120 competitors in 21 divisions participated in the 4th Annual California Pankration Championships. Fighters came from Nevada, Arizona and all parts of California to compete in the double elimination tournament which was held Aug. 27, 2005 on U.S. Marine Corps Base, Camp Pendleton, California. Many of the competitors were Marines and Sailors stationed in Southern California Military Bases.

    Pankration Competition allows strikes to the body, takedowns and submissions. Technique, Safety and sportsmanship are emphasized. Many Professional MMA Fighters first gained experience with Pankration Tournaments before setting out on their Pro Careers.

    TUF 2 Particiapnt Joe Stevenson brought out a tough team from Cobra Kai which took the honors as top adult team. City Boxing followed with a close 2nd place. Top kids team was the Riverside Submission Academy followed by Chuck Costello\'s American Freestyle Fighting in Lake Havasu, Arizona.

    Pankration tournaments are held several times a year in the Southern California Area. See www.fightleague.org for more information.
