Karim-Ben Saunders has been studying various martial arts since the 1980s. Starting with Tae Kwon Do, he gravitated towards Kung Fu and Tai Chi in the early 1990s. Since 1997, he has dedicated himself towards studying Tai Chi and other internal martial arts such as Bagua, Xing Yi and Wuji. He has sought masters far and wide in his search for knowledge. In his search, he has trained locally with Master Narcyz Latecki at Chinese Martial Arts, a division of Athletic Balance, as well as abroad in Hong Kong with Master William Ng.
He has competed in and won gold medals in Tai Chi, Tai Chi Sword, Push Hands, Wushu and XingYi at national and international tournaments. With his experience, Karim-Ben hopes to promote his enthusiasm of internal martial arts and the development of inner clarity and harmony of body, energy and consciousness.
