Head of International Ying Shou Quan Association, Grandmaster Guo Xian He, is the continuer of the tradition of his father, Guo Cheng Yao, and initiated into the treasure of Ying Shou Quan both by his elder brother Grandmaster Guo Xian Ya and Grandmaster Li Bao Ying.
Grandmaster Guo Xian He belongs to the second generation of the family of King of Eagle, Chen Zi Zheng.
Greece consists the center of Guo Family Eagle Claw Kung Fu, outside China. It is the first country where Eagle Claw travelled when the personal and first foreign internal disciple of Grandmaster Guo Xian He, shifu Panagiotis Derventis, got the permission to teach the style abroad.
More specifically, in November 1997, Shifu Panagiotis Derventis established in Ilisia/Athens, with the assistance of his students and friends, the Head Club of the Eagle Claw Family in Greece, named “Kung Peng Wu Guan”, having as his main aim the cultivation of traditional Chinese Wushu and the propagation of Ying Shou Quan globally.
In 2005, shifu Derventis, found a new eagle claw school, this time in Papagos area, which today is under the supervision of his personal students, shifu Vangeli Mako and Gianni Drandaraki. Finally, in 2006, shifu Derventis opened another school of Guo Family in Piraeus, which today runs under his personal student, shifu Gianni Anastasiou.
In 2008, shifu Marios Seretis, also a personal student of Grandmaster Guo Xian He, came back from Spain where he taught Ying Shou Quan for many years and established a new club of Eagle Claw Kung Fu in Halandri/Athens, aiming as well at the development and spread of Ying Shou Quan.
