Who’s Your Sifu?

When choosing a Qigong program, there is one question which stands out above all the rest, that question is; Who’s Your Sifu? When an instructor introduces themselves, their first words should be: I am (their name) and; my Teacher was (their name). Next, they should state how long they trained with the master or instructor, and the training level they achieved.
