    Grand Master  Xanthakis Vangelis (born 1964) is a Master teacher who has devoted his whole life to the Art and Practice of MuayThai & Kung Fu.
    Unlike many other martial art masters in modern times who have long since retired, Grand Master Xanthakis Vangelis continues to teach his multitude of students, every day. He is also the link between the Masters of old and modern times. He is the last of the great martial art masters.

    A significant part of his philosophy includes the practice of humility. Grand Master Xanthakis Vangelis teaches that, “hard work is the foundation of MuayThai and of life.
    But hard work alone will not accomplish everything; and alone, it will not earn the respect of your students. It must be accompanied by humility.
    Humility is the willingness to help those who need it, and the modesty to not flaunt our own abilities. Humility breeds respect. We must always remember this”.

    Grand Master Xanthakis Vangelis world headquarters is located in Vironas City (Greece).

    Grand Master Xanthakis Vangelis says, ‘When you come into class from the busyness of your life, you forget everything. There no time for distraction, no choice but to concentrate so you can catch the constantly changing movements.’ But if the practice stays on a purely physical or mental level, it will not transform you. Muay Thai is a lifestyle.
    Honesty, respect, and self-control mark a truly discipline martial artist.
    Grand Master Xanthakis Vangelis is a living model of these truths. His humility inspires.

  • The Path of How to become a Master

    The path to becoming a Master of Muay Thai is not as straightforward as one may think! For there is no easy route one can follow in this Endeavour. Not even for those who have had the most experience, or even the greatest Champions of the Boxing Ring!

    The reasons for this are many and varied, but basically we can say that even the best of even the Greatest Champions is not guaranteed to be able to teach what he knows or pass on that invaluable knowledge. Likewise, someone who is a good Teacher in many aspects of the Art may not be able to instill in his Students the ability to become a Champion of the Ring.

  • A Master or even Grand Master of Muay Thai needs to have all these qualities in 1 person, himself, and have many more! In fact, we can say that he must be the embodiment of the Art and live it every day! Some of the qualities he should have are - a full understanding of the History, Traditions and Techniques of Muay Thai & be able to communicate it to all levels of Students. He should be of good character & have respect for himself, others and all of life. He should be willing to totally commit himself to the Endeavour of becoming a Master of this Martial Art no matter how long it may take. He should also show the same commitment to his Students!

  • Even if a Teacher has most of the previously mentioned qualities - the experience, skills & knowledge of Muay Thai, or the commitment, this will not necessarily guarantee him of the accolade of Master. For there is 1 last hurdle he must clear, he will require the acceptance & acknowledgement of his abilities from his peers (other Masters). Unlike as in some other Martial Arts over the last few years, where people have reached a certain Level and then Granted themselves dubious Titles, Tradition still plays a very important role in Muay Thai and the candidates for this Title must have the full backing of a Committee of the current Masters as well as Representatives of the Department of Physical Education, Thailand.
