My name is Ovanes Budakyan I was born in Plovdiv. I started doing Martial Arts when I started school (Kyokushin karate) back in 1985. My father took me to Martial Arts road. From 1985 till 1996 I went through different Martial Arts systems as Shaolin, Boxing, Okinawan Karate, Judo, Da Dao. In 1996 Qigong caught my eye, and two years later, in 1998 I began practicing Tai Chi which I continue to this day.
Today I am developing and popularizing the Traditional Chen Tai Chi(TaiJi) in Bulgaria by giving weekly classes and individual lessons. I also hold presentations and taking part in seminars. I have many years of practical and pedagogical experience. I train groups for children and adults, for beginners and advanced students in the traditional Chen Tai Chi(Taijiquan, TaiJi) for health and self development.
