Martial Qi Articles by Garm Olafson

I read your articles with some interest. You briefly mention
that you are an instructor of tanglangquan and baguazhang but
give not details. Could you elaborate on who you studied with and
for how long? Did you receive special training in qigong? Thank
you. Where exactly do you teach? Thank you.

Comrade,

I do not teach martial arts due to my remote location and the fact that I actually have to earn a decent living. I've answered the lineage questions in some detail on multiple previous occasions, so if you search on my name you can probably find the answers. Another comrade may know the article numbers and be kind enough to post links.

On the subject of 'special training' in Qigong, there really is no such thing in terms of martial arts. I am aware of multiple specific disciplines that pertain to healing or religious matters, but the combat arts I have studied included Qigong training as an integral part of the development of a student.

Thank you for your reply. I did a search under Garm. I did a search under
Garm lineage and could not find anything. In the messages and articles I
have seen, you mention the names of Dr. Painter and Bok Nam Park. But, you
do not indicate that you have studied with either of them. Both of them are
baguazhang instructors. Did you study with either of both of them? When and
for how long? What about tanglangquan?

Maybe I just don't know what to search on but I can't seem to find your lineage.
Thank you.

Comrade,

My primary bagua teachers were named Liu and Ng. I have studied bagua since the late 1970's. Mantis teachers Chui and Lee, and a bunch of their students, since the early 1970's. All I know about Painter is what I read in magazines. I have been to a number of Park's seminars and training camps. As I stated, detailaed and long answers to these questions have been posted multiple times previously. If you need more info, search or scroll...

Thank you for the additional details. I will keep searching for your prior
postings. So, far I have not had much luck.

I tried looking for the detailed background information that you mentioned
but have not been able to find it.

Anyway, I thought that you might have been associated with Bok Nam Park
because of your articles. Almost all of the bagua training methods you
discuss, namely

- rooted stepping
- palm striking
- whipping body
- shaking palm
- dragon back
- cleansing breath
- filling breath
- reverse count meditation
- basic qi gong qi circulation exercise (aka standard qi gong)
- yin to yang and yang to yin energy principle
- downward palm striking exercise (aka slapping palm)
- the symbiotic relationship between qi building and qi releasing methods
- the soft target in a tank of water trainng method

all come right out of Bok Nam Park's books, videos, website, etc. I went
to Bok Nam Park's website at http://www.pa-kua.com and did not see you
listed as a qualified instructor of his method so I was curious as to
your background in his method.

Thank you for clarifying you background.
