Shaolin Academy Cooperation with Chinese Embassy in Greece it is one of the best news!
On 11th of December, at the Athletic Club Shaolin Wugong in Iraklio City, arrived the Director of Culture and Education from the Chinese Embassy – Mr. Zhang Zhan. At the Academy were present also the Headmaster of Songshan Shaolin Traditional Wushu Academy Shifu Shi Yanjun.
Mr. Zhang Zhan was very impressed by the achievements of the Club and the work of Shifu Konstantinos Mathiopoulos. The Club’s new location is like a shortcut in the authentic Chinese Culture! The level of Kung Fu students demonstrated in the last event at the Chinese Embassy made Mr. Zhang to name the Athletic Club the Number one in Greece.
Furthermore the Athletic Club Shaolin Wugong will be the one to represent the Greek Kung Fu at the Chinese Embassy Cultural Exchange program.
At the event arrived also the Mayor of City of Iraklio Mr. Nikos Babalos. Mr. Vassilis Stefas (President of the Association) and Mr. Asprodinis Panagiotis (General Secretary of the Association) discussed the opportunities which will arise in the City of Iralkio following the cooperation between Chinese Embassy and the Local Government via Kung Fu Lifestyle. In May 2017 the City of Iraklio will organize a Chinese Cultural Week. The Athletic Club Shaolin Wugong will play a central role in the local community life.
As part of the cooperation in Greece, was discussed the possibility to open a center for foreign students to learn Kung Fu. This means a Songshan Shaolin Traditional Wushu Academy branch in Greece! If the Center will open in Greece, many students from all over the world can train either in China or Greece. The advantage of learning in Greece will be of course the visa, way of life and quality of food. The training will be organized by Shifu Shi Yanjun together with Masters for different Kung Fu styles from China.
We welcome our students’ thoughts about a new center in Greece. Please feel free to feedback us here or directly via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
