Pankration is a martial art which was introduced in the Greek Olymic Games in 648 BC and was founded as a blend of boxing and wrestling but with almost no rules (disallowing biting and gouging the opponent's eyes out). The roots of MMAs (Mixed Martial Arts) like kickbox, boxing, wrestling, cage fighting, taekwando or judo can be traced back to Pankration. Nowadays it is not recognized as an Olympic sport, however several attempts were made to involve it in the 2004 Olympic Games of Athens as a "demonstration sport". unfortunately these efforts were unsuccessful. :(

András Petruska on the stages of Szeged

In Szeged again!

The so-called 'one-member band' of András Petruska will hold a concert in the Youth Hall of Szeged on 19th April, Thursday 7pm. Being only accompanied by his guitar and his wonderful heart-breaking voice, you experience a hair-raising performance as if a 4-membered band stood in front of you. András performs a show using his voice, guitar, drum, trumpet, bag pipe and doublebass.

The main aim of his performances is to entertain his listeners with the creations of his boundless childlike imagination.  He is also willing to demonstrate that you can never set boundaries to your creativity  -  even if your goal seems unattainable, if you make huge efforts your dream can come true ...

This was how he formed his only-member band !
