History of Qwan Ki Do Development in the country
Norvegian Qwan Ki Do Federation was founded in 1998 by Vo Su David Lamingnan Larsen.
Technical Director of Qwan Ki Do Brazil
Vo Su David Lamignan Larsen – Black Belt 4th Dang
David Lamignan Larsen started Qwan Ki Do in 1995 at the age of 14 after being robbed while living in Gabon, West Africa.
He then decided that he wanted to start martial arts in order to defend himself. He didn’t want to start some mainstream martial arts and after doing some research, he came over Qwan Ki Do. After his first training, he fell in love, and have been training ever since.
At the age of 16, David moved back to Norway an at the age of 17 he opened his first club with the Grandmasters blessing.
