Christos Panagopoulos
Panagopoulos Christos has been working since 2002 as a freelancer graphic designer. His parallel interest in martial arts brought him from an early age in contact with various types of martial arts, such as boxing, Tai Chi, Aikido, Wing Chun, and others. In 2006, his love and perseverance for the authentic led him to China to accept direct knowledge from its source at the Shaolin Temple. Since then, every year, he makes a hard and difficult journey in search of the paths that keep alive the tradition and knowledge of techniques maintained from generation to generation for centuries in China.
