Program Highlights

Pankration was a discipline introduced in the 648 bC Greek Olympic Games. The athletes used boxing and wrestling, as well as kicks, holds, joint-locks and chokes on the ground, technics with close similarities to modern mixed martial arts. The term comes from the Greek Παγκράτιον [Paŋkrátion]- meaning “All the power”: a combination of the words “πᾶν (pan) –all” and “κράτος (kratos)-strength, might, power”. In Greek mythology, it is said that Hercules and Theseus invented Pankration, by using wrestling and boxing in their combats. The heroes have defeated the Lion of Nemea and the Minotaur of the Labyrinth accordingly, with Pankration techniques. At the Camp, the participants will become familiar to Pankration discipline by experienced and professional athletes and coaches, approved by the Hellenic Federation of Pankration. A demonstration will initially take place and then the participants will engage with the athletes, separate into pairs and try out certain techniques.


An interactive training program emphasizing on the Olympic Ideals, Olympic Truce, Peace and Respect of Diversity. Specialized educators and trainers of the International Olympic Truce Center will introduce these values, primarily with theoretical lessons, where the participants get familiar with the terms, their meaning and importance. Interactive workshops, games, social interaction and teamwork, will help the participants incorporate these values, embrace the Olympic spirit and implement it in their everyday lives.
