Goals

The Hellenic Pammachon Alliance is a non-profit organization founded in the State of Florida in the USA.  The goals of the organization include, but are not limited to:

1. Expose the youth of the US, Canadian, and Australian Hellenic Diaspora (availability to all Americans, Canadians and Australians) to traditional Hellenic martial education (Πάμμαχον) as maintained by the ΔΕΠ non-profit organization in Hellas; recognized by the Hellenic Cultural Ministry. This methodology includes: Hellenic philosophy, Hellenic terminology, Hellenic martial dance, Hellenic martial sport, non-sport techniques, weapons defenses, traditional κοντάρι (staff) training, κάμα (short sword), σπάθη (sabre) training, κάμα/σπάθη and ασπίδα (buckler shield) training, with rank progression in an age-appropriate manner.  In tandem, we provide an adult training track,  for those youth that graduate to adulthood.

2. Provide a progressive certification program for “Βοηθός Επαιδευτή Νεων” (Youth Trainer) for adults to provide appropriate training to youth with their advancement. All youth ranks will be recognized by the ΔΕΠ - The International Pammachon Union (recognized by the Hellenic Cultural Ministry) as well as the Institute of Traditional Martial Art of the University of New Mexico.

3. Facilitate the orchestration of a yearly Πάμμαχον event in the Patrida (motherland) for affiliates (instructors, students, etc) in the Hellenic Diaspora and their families.

4. Through these acts, strengthen the bond between the US, Canada and Australian Hellenic Diaspora communities and Hellas for the growth of the youth.

These 4 items support the HPA intention to utilize Πάμμαχον as a major vehicle to facilitate the recovery of Hellas from what is now referred to as the Κρίση in both Hellas and the Hellenic Diaspora communities abroad.
