Pankration (pan = all, kration = power, 'no holds barred')

Pankration, which literary means 'all force', is a combination of wrestling and boxing. It was a dangerous sport, in which everything was permitted except biting, gouging (stabbing with your finger in your opponent's eye, nose or mouth) and attacking the genitals.
