The number of participants in the competition exceeded two hundred. Fights are held in the sports complex «Musson».
Pankration is a full contact sport. All disciplines are held in full contact. The only thing is that the affected areas are limited, that is, hits to the head are prohibited in the traditional pankration, almost everything is allowed in the classic— said the President of the Wrestling Federation of Sevastopol Alexei Zadniprovsky.
The winners and prize-winners of the pankration competition in Sevastopol will go to the Russian Championship in St. Petersburg and the national championship in Ufa in April.
