He continued his training from 1997 till 2007 by learning TAI CHI CHUAN with his teacher Kostas Kostaras. In 2007 he was introduced to the art of WSL Ving Tsun Kung – Fuwhich was taught by Evagelos Zitakis, a unique man and a real phenomenon in the martial arts. Today he is a member of the greek federation of Ving Tsun and Tactical Hellas, two very different systems that if put together create an explosive combination.
His ultimate goal is to spread the art.
