Pammachon, Martial Art of the West

ByKostas Dervenis

From ancient times through to the Second World War, martial arts were practiced in Greece. Long before Bodhidharma travelled to the Shaolin Temple or the celebrated Samurai of Japan even existed, the warriors of ancient Greece achieved legendary status on the battlefield. Over the millennia Pammachon, the Western art of Close Quarter Combat, evolved, its historical course following the development of weaponry and the necessary responses new weapons dictated for hand-to-hand fighting and melee combat. More than just a means of close quarter combat, this art was also a means of strengthening character and fortifying the mind, body and spirit. From reclaiming the Western battlefield heritage to explaining in scientific terms some of the greatest mysteries of the esoteric tradition, the author provides the reader with guidance and insight on how to thrive in the turmoil of the modern world, and how to grow as a person for the benefit of society as a whole.
