||My name is Nicola and I'm an italian practitioner of|
Qwan Ki Do/Quan Khi Dao. I'm writing because I have
some questions concerning the historical roots of Qwan
Ki Do/Quan Khi Dao and I haven't been able to have the
informations I need from the Italian Union of Qwan Ki
Do/Quan Khi Dao.
As you may know, here in Italy it's happening something
similar to what happened in France years ago:
basically, there are "profonds désaccords concernant la
gestion administrative et financière de la fédération"
that lead some people to create another association to
practice Qwan Ki Do outside the boundaries of the
Italian Union (the name of this association is Vo
Vietnam and it was created by masters Mastrulli, Oriot
and Bungaro - now their association starts to promote
the Chuong Quan Khi Dao).
Just after the facts I've described above, weird rumors
For istance, here in Italy none among Qwankido
practitioners knows who Michael Audiffren is. I've been
told by people inside the Italian Union he's just a
French master of Qwankido; lots of people inside
Italian Union seem quite unhappy of talking about him.
But some people from Vo Vietnam says he helped Master
Tong to create the Qwankido method.
This means only a thing: Qwankido is not really a
traditional martial art, at least not in the sense most
of the italian practitioners give to the word
Could you please tell me who Michael Audiffren really
is and what was his role in creating the Qwankido method?
I'd be glad to know - if possible - what's exactly the
legacy of Master Pahm Minh Kinh: since French Chuong
Quan Khi Dao has a different program from Italian Qwan
Ki Do, I was wondering what's the reason of these
differences. Are we really learning Master Pahm Minh
There are too much stories and rumors about Qwan Ki
Do/Quan Khi Dao's origins and that's really an unfair
Could you help me, please?
Thank you very much for your answer
