Throughout recent history, the Outback has been the destination of choice for those of us who desire the intimacy and connection of hand-to-hand combat. A survivor of fires, destruction, and the occasional out-of-control grudge match, its walls hold memories of some of the defining moments of Duel of Fists history.
To honor this history, we introduce the Panther's Claw, an award honoring BlackPanther, founder and patron saint of Duel of Fists.
The first Diamond was given out in January of 1995. Ten years later, the Panther's Claw (and associated tournament) was created, and is awarded to a dueler below the rank of Emerald.
