Shaolin Temple in China is the best place to practice original kung fu and they are surely unrivaled, but the tickets cost much and the trip is difficult. The main target of Shaolin Temple Secular Disciples in Greece is to bring the real traditional training of Shaolin kung fu to the west, closer to the people who do not have the opportunity to travel to China or those who have traveled before and they want to do the same program in the west.
Greece is a wonderful place for this purpose since the weather conditions are similar to Song San mountain. In addition, they will supply qualified teachers from China, so the results will be the same.
During this camp, you will have chances to take hikes on the various nature trails and visiting nearby locations with sightseeings for outdoor training.
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.
