“A man’s ledger does not tell what he is, or what he is worth. Count what is in man, not what is on him, if you would know what he is worth, whether rich or poor.”

Hosts Jason Chambers and Bill Duff go to Greece to train in the art of Pankration.

Pankration was a martial art introduced into the Greek Olympic Games in 648 BC and founded as a blend of boxing and wrestling but with almost no rules save disallowing biting and gouging the opponent's eyes out.

The term comes from the Greek παγκράτιον [paŋkrátion], literally meaning "all powers" from πᾶν (pan-) "all" + κράτος (kratos) "strength, power".

In Greek mythology, it was said that the heroes Heracles and Theseus invented Pankration as a result of using both wrestling and boxing in their confrontations with opponents.

Theseus was said to have utilized his extraordinary Pankration skills to defeat the dreaded Minotaur in the Labyrinth.

Heracles was said to have subdued the Nemean lion using Pankration, and was often depicted in ancient artwork doing that
