Andy Garcia started me in Qigong from his Hop Gar training.
Chen QuanZhong told me to concentrate on Qigong after a grappling demo where he showed me how his Qi totally controlled mine.
Chen ZhengLei also told me to concentrate on Qigong and showed me some of his Qigong forms.
Since 1999 I have been concentrating on Qigong training, mostly under Dr. Zhou Peigen, my father-in-law.
US Army veteran. 1968 - 1971
I have several certifications in Qigong. I am a Certified Hypnotherapist and a Reiki Master. Member of the National Qigong Association.
