Coach Karma L. Senge has been in self defense and the martial arts for over 32+ years now. Starting at the age of 4, Karma would dedicate his entire life to the combat systems. He first started in Wing Chun Gung-Fu and later around the age of 9 started training in the Filipino Martial Arts, JKD, BJJ, and Muay Thai. Coach Karma is certified in 15 different systems of combat. Back in 1997 Coach Karma was induced into The World Martial Arts Hall of Fame when he was only 19 years old. It was there that Karma first met Grandmaster Bobby Taboada of Balintawak. It was not until a few years later that Coach Karma would begin training consistently under GM Bobby. Coach Karma would travel to GM Bobby’s home and train with him in private and semi-private lessons. As well as having GM Bobby come down to teach seminars at Coach Karma’s self defense schools. Ever since 2004, Coach Karma has dedicated himself to the art of Balintawak Arnis Cuentada.
I don’t really want to do anything else but Balintawak. Out of all the martial arts and self defense I have ever done, I always thought something was missing. Until I found Balintawak. Now, it is the only thing that I personally train in. Coach Karma Senge
On top of his training with GM Bobby Taboada, Coach Karma has also trained with many groups of various Balintawak Styles. Coach Karma spends on average 3-6 hours per day, 7 days a week personally training in the system. He also teaches people out of his home in San Ignacio, Belize (Central America) and does seminars all around the world. To contact him please email him here.
