Miguel Aldrey, who was the technical director of Galicia and had more than 400 students in and around the city of A Coruña, was left in charge of technical management since 1993. Coach with extensive experience in martial arts, who came from Tae Kwon Do.
In 1996, the technical management changed and the technical director Miguel Bordera Pascual arrived. The Qwan Ki Do in Spain has a big setback, with few clubs and instructors remaining. The European Interclub Championship of Barco de Valdeoras, Galicia, was organized in 1999.
In 2000 with the arrival in Spain of the current technical director Catalin Onisie Onisie (08/2000), the interest increased, due to the knowledge, the quality of teaching and the enthusiasm that he was able to pass on from the first year, with those who remained in the national organization.
